I love to create...

cupcakes! I've discussed before my love of cupcakes, especially Sprinkles Cupcakes! For our 4th of July potluck at work today, I decided I had to make Sprinkles Red Velvet cupcakes. They are AMAZING, and with their white cream cheese frosting, and some blueberries on top, they make the perfect 4th of July treat. All I needed was some Sprinkles Cupcake Mix and my handy cupcake carrier, and I was good to go. Feeling very domestic, I took my time, making sure I did everything perfectly. Once I finished frosting and arranging the blueberries, I carefully placed the cupcakes into the cupcake carrier, went to put on the lid, and realized....they didn't fit. I was devastated! I had just spent two hours making these cupcakes, and now I was going to have to squish them together and ruin everthing! Luckily, working at Duncan doesn't just encourage artistic creativity, but it encourages you to think more creatively as well! I am proud to present to you my new cupcake transportation device:
As you can see, I used four wine corks to add height. I no longer had to worry about the frosting getting smeared everywhere! I then wrapped the entire thing in saran wrap. It kept the wine corks in place, and prevented the cupcakes from getting stale. I was so impressed. Here they are, safely delivered to work:

Not a blueberry out of place! Not to toot my own horn, but I've been getting rave reviews from my co-workers. I might just have a new career in cupcakes :)
