turns out both my boys had pretty rough thursdays. toby had a bath (as seen in the previous post), and andrew was really tired from work. he hasn't had much of a chance to catch up on rest, and sounded really bummed on the phone, so i thought i would try to cheer him up. i went and got one of his favorite beers, a bit of his favorite chocolate (the kind with peppers in it), and i made him "blues away cupcakes." these are essentially just cupcakes dyed blue with sad faces on them. i tried to use minimal icing since andrew doesn't like it, and i think they were pretty cute.
we had friends over to watch football and then later i was cleaning up. not wanting to waste my cupcakes, i tried to wrap them up.
no cling wrap.
so i got a big ziplock! i put them in carefully so their faces wouldn't get smashed, but there were three at the end i couldn't fit. i wasn't too concerned since i made like two dozen, and just left the three stragglers on the plate.
then later i came back into the kitchen and felt so incredibly guilty for what i had done to my cupcakes... i captured it for you:
**no cupcakes were manipulated for this photograph. they are just that upset.
like i said, i felt pretty guilty.
sorry cupcakes- i didn't mean to leave your friends out of the bag!
