Last week was one of my co-worker's birthdays.
I took it upon myself to cut out little paper flags and glue them to toothpicks.
I also took it upon myself to make fig cupcakes with cream cheese icing.
I did not follow the icing recipe to a tee. I put about half the sugar and 3/4 the butter because I like cream cheese icing to be cream-cheesy...not sugary.
Baking is stress relief for me.
Especially if I can really take my time, and clean along the way. These opportunities don't happen much, so when they do, I'll take them. Having a messy kitchen makes me not want to do anything.
My cupcakes came out fantastically.
And my refrigerator looks much happier. : )
PS - Happy Birthday, Larry!
