If you’ve read the UPCAT story, this is the sequel.
Last night, Sam finally frosted enough cupcakes to make her arm ache. I bought two boxes of disposable pastry bags last week. I baked the cupcakes late yesterday afternoon. I prepared the cream cheese frosting a few hours later. Sam was excitedly waiting for the cupcakes to cool so she could frost them but Alex and I were starving and we each ate one sans frosting. Sam screamed at us but, hey, she still had 12 cupcakes left. By the time she was done, there was dried red, blue and yellow food color running down her arms. And on her lips too.
She experimented with the different tips…
… didn’t like the first few ones she did and she leveled the frosting with the back of a spoon. But by the time she was into her fourth cupcake…
I hope the two-toned frosting is discernible. For someone who never attended baking classes, well, I really think she ought to rethink her dream of becoming a chef before she decided she was going to be a professional photographer.
Of course, it got messy. And since the house helpers had gone to bed by the time the 12th cupcake was frosted, Sam and I had to clean up. I didn’t mind. I was happy that she was happy. After cleaning up, it was time to enjoy the cupcakes. Darn, they were good.
