The Affection of Confections

Cupcakes; what do they mean to you?
To me, they mean an inexpensive (sometimes) present that has an automatic 'wow' factor. We all see beautiful cupcakes in the windows of fancy patisserie shops and they seem so unattainable, so grand, and there is an undeniable pleasure that comes from gifting something like that to others.. especially when you made it yourself.

I make more cupcakes than I eat, and probably make more cupcakes than others would wish; I'll be the first to admit that. I'm just bent like that I suppose; creation for pleasure under the guise of selflessness.

I like to make pretty things; I've yet to find something prettier than a maraschino cherry.
