I am happy, but I had a sad morning.

So which is sadder:

A) I spent ~2 hours yesterday making cupcakes. They turned out cool, I'll post a picture eventually I hope. But then I brought them into work in my new, clearly ineffective cupcake carrier, and they ALL fell over.

or B) When I went to pick them up and right them (keep in mind, the frosting got EVERYWHERE), one fell out as soon as I opened it and first hit my jeans and then fell on the floor, frosting and all. And I don't have a washing machine, and we don't really have an ETA for one. "Early October" is all I know.

Sad morning. Cupcake tragedies, left and right.

  1. I am due next Thursday (10.14) and I read your blog from time to time. I have to say I get how sad this is. I made a cake and was in too much of a hurry to get it over to my friends house so I didn't let it cool properly. First, the frosting all slid off and then, on the way over, the top portion of cake slid off the bottom portion. I started crying and we turned around. I was inconsolable.
    Finally, I pulled myself together and we went over to the friends' house with the cake (I have no idea why I didn't leave it at home). I was so embarrassed when we ate it - because I hadn't let it cool it had sunk and the bottom was solid and the icing was all over the place. It was gross and everybody was very nice and lied to me.

    Moral of the story - don't expect perfection before, during or after birth!

    Lots of luck with your birth and if you'd like to check my blog out:
