I can’t say that the weather here on the east coast has been consistent lately. Friday I drove to work at 6 am as my windshield wipers batted away big snow flakes, tomorrow it is supposed to be a beyond gorgeous 72 degrees, and let’s not forget it is April, so anticipating on and off showers is only proper as reminded by the silly phrase we were raised on. April Showers bring May flowers… April also brings something else, Cupcakes.
After a long winter in the garage, our fountain floated its way back to the center of the pond this morning. A real stamp of Spring, and a reminder that for at least another 8 months, I won’t have to fear lifting the shades to see its frozen surface staring back at me!
In honor of this lovely day, I will be in the kitchen churning out a few batches of my specialty cakes, feeling the breeze blow in from the breakfast room doors and listening to the sound of splish splashing water as it calms me down. It is the only way to say good-bye to the uninspiring winter season, and the dirty left over snow, like mounds of burnt crumbs, that has finally melted all away!
Something to discuss:
What are your favorite cupcake flavors?! My dad is having a big party this weekend, and I am responsible for endless trays of cupcakes for dessert …. Besides the obvious, chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet… what else should I feature?
