What a cupcake likes…

I don’t aspire to literary greatness or wittiness, which posed a bit of a problem when I had to come up with the wording to put on the attendance certificates for the cupcake workshop (item no. 7 on my 30 for 30 list). My friend Emily put together the prose and Emma did the printing of the posters. I came up with this ditty at 3am on the morning of the cupcake workshop, inspired by Edward Monkton. Do you fancy posting a poetic response?

Said the cupake to [insert your name],

“I like it when you help me grow taller

and pipe a no. ’99 whippy on me,

and clothe me in rich,

buttercream yumminess.



Thank you for making me beautiful.”


I promise to post more photos, write up another entry on the workshop itself and a cupcake recipe soon. But right now I am still exhausted from Sunday night’s 6 hour cupcake baking marathon. Any guesses what time I went to bed? More on that later.

25th Feb – cupcake recipe added!
