I ate this today and omg it was delicious. I usually don’t eat cupcakes anymore. In fact, I really don’t eat many sweets anymore. I like to think I get enough sugar from my glass(es) of wine with dinner. 😮
Sadly I really don’t crave the 4 big C’s anymore (cookies or cupcakes or candy or cake oh my).
But THIS I had to have. It’s my company’s birthday and some evil fiend brought a trayful into work. I was minding my own business, passing by the breakroom on my way back to my office when I spied one solitary birthday cupcake sitting by itself on the table. Btw, what is it about being the last one that makes you think “omg it’s the last one I have to have it or else I’ll never ever get to have another [insert food item] again in my life”??? If there were a couple of cupcakes just sitting there, I could’ve passed by them no problem. Ugh, but I’m such a sucker for the last bite.
Anyways, this sweet creation was heavenly. Between you and me, a tad too much frosting but, hey, I smeared off a bit and viola! it was sheer perfection. And it did the trick for my mid-afternoon blahs that always settle in around 3pm.
Now, I’m not get into the fact that I started back on a very well-known diet plan last week and that I actually had a really, really good first week, but we won’t go into that now (as I lower my head disgracefully knowing calories do not burn off easily like they did when I was younger).
Regardless, I’m happily on a sugar high so I’m sending out a big Thank You to that evil fiend. Not only are you a genius but dang you can cook. I owe you one.
