In the last month I've made cupcakes or invitations for friends and both sent me "gifts" to show their appreciation which was definitely not expected. I enjoy doing things for my friends and get joy in seeing smiles on their faces when they see my cupcakes or invitations.
Justina dropped off a jumbo cupcake pan & a cherry pitter (we had discussed this while looking at Martha's new cupcake book). I used the cupcake pan on Saturday and it's awesome! The cupcakes are huge and perfect to add filling (see Apricot Cupcake Blog). I used the cherry pitter to make Cherry Ice Cream about a month ago. It worked perfect as well. Two cool things to add to my kitchen.
Last week I shipped out 24 pineapple shaped Birthday invites to Shanna for Kailani's 1st Birthday. She sent me a creme brulee torch (which was on my "must have" list) and snowflake fondant cutters. I can't wait to use both.
"Thank You" both for appreciating me
