If you Run Out of Time...

Last year, I got some really cute jimmies and sprinkles that are autumn themed from Williams Sonoma. So, after I got my new cupcake holder, I decided that I wanted to take cupcakes to my 1st grade church choir. My grand plans were to make cupcakes and homemade icing. Then, after seeing how my Q4 call schedule was, I decided that I would use a cake mix and throw in some sprinkles to make my own fall themed funfetti cupcakes but make homemade icing. WELL, instead of getting off at 4 I was back from work at 5pm 20 minutes away from church and choir starts at 6pm. Hmmm...so, if you run out of time...just go get ready made frosting from the grocery store...1st graders don't care! Cupcakes are cupcakes and they will ALWAYS ask for seconds!

Gail - They did...many asked for seconds, which I didn't have enough for.

Jane - :-)

Joanna - I mean, it works for me.

Peabody - They did. It's amazing how messy just one little cupcake can be.
