I woke up this morning craving chocolate cupcakes. Not a great way to start the day, right? But then I started thinking, do I want the frosting or the dark rich chocolate cake? My children each have their own favorite, my youngest eats the frosting only, licking it off the cake. My son likes the whole thing, literally savoring every single bite, down to the last crumb. My oldest likes to eat the frosting first, then the cake. My husband likes to eat it all, usually only one at time. He has eaten many a cupcake, and looks thinner than when this process started. It has been over 4,300+ cupcakes by now.
(*Sidenote- speaking of frosting, the dog started barking, so I went upstairs to see what it was about and found my 3 year old in the leftover chocolate frosting… more is on her face than stomach. Here’s a photo to prove it. I tell ya, she sure likes chocolate buttercream! My dog tells me when the kids are up to something… his name is Cupcake, too. Thanks Cupcake- this mess could have been more than just on her little face!)
