a cupcake tea party

April 7, 2009 |  Category:   baked goods + desserts










What to do when it’s cold and rainy and you’ve got 2 restless kids and loads of leftover batter from a recent cupcake order? Have a cupcake tea party, of course (baked without wrappers because Mia likes to EAT them, ugh). We let the girls loose on a few dozen cupcakes and loads of sprinkles to do what they wish. Mia took to the task meticulously, decorating each one carefully while Claudine’s style was to pile on as many sprinkles as possible onto one cupcake. It looked like a lot of cupcakes but somehow, they all disappeared within 2 days.

    Oooh, bad gramma! I didn’t have the tea party with them in December and, wouldn’t you know it, Mia has not forgotten! I hear she’s tasked Lara with picking up where I left off, but I would like to redeem myself when I come next month. Try to have some leftover batter when I’m there, OK? Thanks!

    Yum…is Mark willing to share a cupcake recipe he likes that won’t cut into his retail business? I’m about to make banana muffins from his recipe and very, very excited about it.
