I love birthdays, especially my own, which is exactly two weeks away. August seems to be a birthday heavy month. So many of my friends have August or early Sept birthdays that we run out of days for “celebration dinners” (we’re celebrating mine as a half birthday next February).
Because my mother was a first grade teacher, its always seemed natural to me to bring treats to work on my birthday. I guess its my way of clinging to my childhood. I keep waiting for someone from my office to give me a paper birthday crown to wear and nominate me as “line leader” for the day but that hasn’t happened yet.
My point is, I’ve not yet decided what sort of treats to bring for my birthday…or to any of the many other birthday celebrations I’ve been invited to this month (BayJB). I’d love to make a new cupcake recipe, since I’ve not done one in a while, but I could really use some inspiration….from YOU GUYS!
Do you have a favorite cupcake recipe? An amazing buttercream frosting? Something totally off-the-wall delicous to share? A cool decorating idea? Tell me!
Even better…SHOW me! I’m challenging everyone to submit your best cupcake attempts…with pictoral evidence please!
Here’s the deal:
Email me your recipes and photos by Sunday, August 24th, along with any info about why this recipe is birthday worthy.
I have some high expectations here and want to recieve a ton of great ideas…don’t let me down guys. I know you’re all out there and up to the challenge!
On my birthday, August 28th, I’ll post everything I’ve recieved and reveal the treat that makes it into the office. It will be my birthday present to YOU.
