A few weeks ago I was in the midst of a crisis and any good friend knows that the only thing that will really make you feel better is a baked good.  Now my friend Deborah should be going to hell for this, but because she is so nice, I guess I should recant that statement.

6 Yummy Cupcakes!

I came home from work to find a huge box on my doorstep.  The styrofoam box said fragile and contents perishable.  I could not think of what I ordered so I immediately pulled the box inside and whipped out a knife to slice the box open.  After taking out the large block of dry ice, I saw a box of Crumbs Cupcakes.

As much as I wanted to shove my face into these cupcakes, I knew I had not ordered them so I looked around for a note or something.  My friend Deb has sent them to me as a way to cheer me up.  Can we say she knows me pretty well?!  Hello….she is sending me backed goods across the miles!!

I gained some self-control and went to pilates.  As soon as I came home, I showed Dave the enormous cupcakes and asked if he wanted to have a half with me.  He turned down my offer, so I cut the cupcake in half and then ended up consuming both halves.  Oh by the way, these suckers are about as tall as a half of a soda can and about 4 inches wide!  Dave looked at me (I think in horror) and asked, “Is that your dinner?”  With a mouthful of cupcake, I answered, “Yes.  And don’t judge me!”  Want to read more about Crumbs Cupcakes nutritional value?  (I don’t recommend it!)  Click here.
