The Day After
December 26, 2008
The cupcake maker was tops on my daughter’s Christmas list this year. Well, along with Glitter Lava. It seemed like such a ridiculous thing. For months she kept talking about it. Going on and on about how much she wanted it.
I remember when I was her age, and for a few years afterward, I wanted the Sunshine Family. A family of dolls that had a Mon, Dad, Brother and Sister. I am not sure why exactly I was so hung up on this particular doll family, but I was. I asked for them for every single holiday. And I never got them. Not that I am still bitter and harboring a grudge or anything…
What exactly is a cupcake maker, you might ask?
It is a device that allows you to make ONE cupcake at a time. And then individually decorate it. It is like the complete opposite of my life in bulk.
Basically, it turns a simple 10 second job into an elaborate, gadget filled project that makes a mess as far as the eye can see.
But it made my daughter oh-so-very-happy to spend hours (LITERALLY) individually making cupcakes for her brothers. Saving the grande finale, a sprinkle covered one for herself.
Hoping all of your wishes came true this holiday too. And if they didn’t, maybe you should get yourself a Cupcake Maker. Everything is better with frosting.
