So yesterday, I was sitting here and around 3pm thought to myself, I wanna make cupcakes. I got a mini cupcake maker for my birthday and hadn’t used it yet, why I don’t know….
But yesterday was the day! I got my mini cupcake maker out, read the instructions and whipped up the batter, confetti better, mind you :)!
It is the cuties little thing. My BF Em got it for me because I love cupcakes, along with a recipe book on how to make and decorate cupcakes :) After getting the cupcakes baking I whipped up the icing, my favorite part. I don’t like store bought so I always try and whip it up by hand. A buttercream frosting is my favorite with cupcakes.
After the cupcakes cooled and I iced them, I added sprinkles to really punch up the cuteness.
I wasn’t really making them for anyone in particular, I just felt like making cupcakes. It definitely put a smile on my face and it took me out of my head because I was doing something that needed my full attention and that I really enjoyed doing.
So my question for you today is, what makes you smile? What makes you get so involved that you don’t realize what time it is? Find out what that is and embrace it when you can and as often as you can. Maybe try to do it this weekend at some point…just do something for the very fact of just loving to do it, no “have to’s” or “I better get this done” or anything attached to it, just do it for you!
