ABECEDARIAN CUPCAKE LESSONS
Baking dozens of
Cupcakes this week, I've learned a few Life Lessons:
Delight in the process as much as the product.
Each ingredient is as important as the next.
Forget about the clock,
Go with the flow,
Joyously (and cover your mistakes with frosting).
Keep working until the
Last bowl is clean and dry and back on the shelf.
Measure ingredients with precision, but do
Not forget that there are times when
Observation is more
Quantifiable amounts or
Tasting the frosting when buttercream becomes
Work enough to make the
eXtra effort worth the time
You put into the project. Be
Zealous, but never a zealot.
