Such as, What is Martha up to these days? Here's the answer: Cupcakes, cupcakes and more cupcakes.
*That is a TMI statement and not at all endorsed or even known by the actual Martha Stewart.
**By 'a lot', I mean none yet, but feel free to ask me any Martha-related questions you might have.
***Of course, you can ask me questions about anything. I'm here for you!
****Not that I know that much about Martha. Did I say 'expert?' Huh, I wonder why I said that.
But it is true, Martha is into cupcakes in a big way. Last month, Martha came out with her Cupcakes book. This week, it's cupcake week on the Martha Stewart Show. And on Martha Stewart .com, she's having a Cutest Cupcakes contest.
And you know what that means, my dear readers: If Martha is into cupcakes, I'm into cupcakes. Like this coconut cupcake:
Other than wanting to be just like Martha, and other than wanting to win the Cutest Cupcake contest, I do have a great reason for having cupcakes on the brain: two coworkers have birthdays in the next week, and I want to bake something special for the two people I have come to rely on for laughs and camaraderie here at work.
Perhaps the vanilla letter cupcakes are the way to go?
But I do want something fun and playful. I really like the theme Martha has with these shark and beach cupcakes. And since we work right by the Lake, these make perfect sense.
My current plan: use Martha's coconut cupcake recipe with this beach theme. If everything goes according to plan, I'll bake and decorate terrific cupcakes, give a great gift to my coworkers, win the Cutest Cupcakes contest and begin Phase 2 of my plan for world domination.*****
*****Forget I said that last part. No need for you to worry about that! There's no TMI plan for world domination. Especially one that's really thought out with several phases. And a comprehensive to-do list. With highly detailed drawings. That I've been working on for several years. Nope, no evil mastermind genius plans here!
