Question: What’s better than a cupcake?
Answer: A cupcake baked IN A JAR! With an adorably designed and printed label on the lid! AND MAYBE A SPOON ATTACHED!
I am SO going to AC Moore this weekend.
I generally bake for my department holiday presents and I’m never quite satisfied with the wrapping options. Plain clingwrap is too plain. Holiday clingwrap is too ugly. Tins are never the right size and the usual design schmaltz makes me want to boil a reindeer and scratch my ass with his antlers.
(Which is terrible, because I love Christmas and would love to have a reindeer of my very own. I would hold him, and squeeze him, and call him George.)
At my last job, I made chocolates for the entire company (or, most of them…) each year. This place was too big to manage that before I even got here, so it became “department-plus-colleagues-I-would-like-even-if-I-didn’t-have-to-pretend-to-like-them.”*
Here my friends, is the clear solution. Apple cake for everyone!
