True confession time. I’ve never actually made cupcakes. I love the idea of them, and they’re sooooo pretty. I just don’t like eating them. But I’ve been meaning to have a go for ages, so Vanessa Liddell’s genius Cupcakes4Cantabs fundraiser was just the inspiration I needed to get me started.
I baked a batch yesterday evening and set the alarm for ridiculous o’clock this morning to ice them (I was scared the sprinkles would melt like the wicked witch of the west if I left them overnight).
Now I just need to sell ‘em. I brought them into work where I am enticing my colleagues to do their good deed for the day by making a small donation to the Canterbury Earthquake Appeal, in return for which they get a frothy confection of sugary fabulousness.
It’s a very satisfying start to the week.
