My husband and I were invited to a "dessert potluck" style Christmas sing-along party and I wanted to take something that was fun and cute, but also EASY to make. (This happens to be a theme in my life right now).
I decided to make cupcakes from a box. It would be nice if I had the desire to make everything from scratch, but I don't. And I'm OK with that. :) I'm trying to consciously embrace the gifts of imperfection in my life.
I also don't eat sugar since I deal with autoimmune issues, so I don't usually like to spend too much time on the baking side of things. I'd rather spend more time on the creative possibilities with food presentation.
I cut two toppers (front and back) for each cupcake and taped a toothpick between the two.
It was super easy and turned out pretty well!
Imperfectly fun and creative. Just how I like it. :)
