Thinking Inside The Box

Perhaps one of these days, maybe after we get the KitchenAid Mixer we registered for and after we get a larger kitchen, I'll make things from scratch ala justJENN and Hil. Until then I'll continue to be a lazy baker and make cupcakes from a box and frost them with pre-made frosting in a can. I'm so unprepared in the kitchen that we don't even have toothpicks to test how done the cupcakes are. I used a chopstick instead!

I made some Valentine-themed cupcakes to take to work tomorrow. They're the funfetti with whipped cream cheese frosting. I also added some fun red, white and pink heart quins, and conversation hearts.

"I really like Valentine’s Day in this office. It’s kind of like grade school, everybody gives out little presents and stuff. Like last year Jim gave me this card with Dwight’s head on it was horrifying and funny…" - Pam, The Office

    Gosh I wish I still worked with you Nanette. You always bring in great treats!

  2. Mmmm those look good! I think the cake mixes that come out of a box are just fine!

  3. They look yummy! And you will LOVE your KitchenAid, trust me!

    And if it makes you feel any better, I never have toothpicks around either--I use a knife.

  4. No way man, baked goods from scratch are so much better and so worth the effort.
