In the chaos of giving birth (and here and here), I completely forgot that I wanted to share the revelations of the cupcake geniuses (my adorable yearbook girls) who threw me a shower the week before-- until I saw this article on Bon Appetit's website.
You know you've always wondered how to eat a cupcake without getting a nose full of frosting, or to ensure a proper cake to frosting ratio?
Here is the genius: tear off the bottom half of the cupcake and squash it into the frosting.
Absolutely life changing.
You think I'm hyperbolizing. Or worse, kidding entirely.
Not at all. Try it. Your life will change. For the better.
And did you know hyperbolizing is a real word?? I didn't have a clue. I thought I was bastardizing the English language again.
I digress. I love the picture up there. If you ignore the cuteness of my yearbook girls loving on Baby "Pedro" and look at the cupcake in the photo, you'll notice the brilliant tactic described above being employed.
Now go back to the cuteness.
I love those girls.
Not only do they know how to eat a cupcake, throw a shower, and make some darn great yearbooks, but they are also fantastic, beautiful, and incredibly intelligent ladies.
What's not to love?
What do you think of the cupcake strategy? Perfection perfected? Go ahead, go get some cakes and give it a whirl.
