The boxed spice cake mix that Mama adores arrived on our doorstep yesterday, thanks to a generous angel in the NY Times Cooking Community. And so today was baking day!
I adopted a few of the tips from fellow foodies to improve the boxed mix but didn’t want to mess with it too much since that’s the flavor she loves. I managed to keep the golden cupcake liners and edible peacock toppers a secret until I presented the completed cupcake and Mama was thrilled!
Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was special birthday spice cupcakes! Thanks again to Jennifer B. for sending us the mix and frosting!!! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!
Day 274 of 366. And Now Totaling 1,735 Days In A Row. Here’s the first 366, & the following 365, & the third year of 365 good things, & the 4th year of good things!
On this day…
- 1 year ago: Creative month ends in love
- 2 years ago: Walking (and eating) through Venice
- 3 years ago: Alternative celebrations
- 4 years ago: Bounty from our garden
That looks so pretty, and I can almost taste those spices!
Did you ever get to see the post I did for you, starring the colourful sweater? Now I am doing a Mondrian inspired pullover.
