So imagine my shock and dismay when he brings home a cupcake decorating book.
Let me make three things clear about myself: 1) I don't decorate food. I find beauty in its unrefined appearance. 2) I don't do cupcakes. If people ask for them in my bakery, I refer them elsewhere. 3) I hate decorating. I'm impatient and too hurried to do something neat like that.
Total groan for me. But I promised. So today, as a Mother's Day gift (huh?), I helped him make his koi cupcake pond.
I did promise to share with you both my successes and failures.
The first step was easy. We baked cupcakes (from a box). Then we iced them (from a can).
