So I told you I would share some of my Valentine stories... well here's a funny one.
When I lived in a dorm as a college freshmen, I was determined not to be lonely on Valentines Day and spread cheer to the masses.
So what did I do? I baked a lot of double chocolate cupcakes, iced and ready to give to the lonely campus dwellers.
If you've been in a dorm you know space is limited and you don't have a kitchen to yourself. So I began stacking cupcakes on the window seals and desktops of me and my poor roommate's room.
Well Valentines came and went while I unraveled a cupcake or two and ate them on my bunk bed. I got too nervous and thought about how people might think it was weird to give them a cupcake when I didn't know them... so they sat on the window seals until they were hardened and eventually thrown away!
Can you believe that! My timidity caused such a waste, and how nice is it to get a cupcake from a stranger (in the right circumstances).
So this year, don't be afraid, Give a cupcake!
Some other beautiful treats to inspire the baker in you!
