Let’s see how this goes.

So while we’re at it, let me tell you about this cupcake. It was my niece’s birthday last Sunday, and weeks before that I planned on ordering her favourite chocolate cake through my friend, Jen. She–together with her mother-in-law–bakes the meanest pastries! So yummy! So I consulted her on what cake recipe and design I should order for our not-so-little girl, who was turning 9. Jen suggested that they used her MIL’s good ol’ recipe, and I agreed.

When I got home, I went online and stumbled on this 9gag post (yes, 9gag has my soul too!). It was what looked like a mocha cupcake with blue icing and a rainbow tape arched between clouds of white icing! I was puking rainbows, and I knew right then and there that my niece would love it. I shared the post with Jen and told her that I’d like to order cupcakes instead, channeling that 9gag post.

Sunday came, and while the family’s having lunch, Jen arrived with his husband (also my boss and an awesome photographer!) Kuya Neil to deliver the goodies. Boy oh boy! When I showed the cupcakes to the rest of the family, they were all impressed! It was beautiful! My niece loved it, especially the icing. I had the blue icing replaced with purple because it was my niece’s favourite colour. She was ecstatic to share her cake with her guests.

Well, we only had a simple family gathering to just celebrate her birthday with a simple feast of lasagna, barbecue and cake–all her favourite fare. It was only us, plus our cousin and my loves who came to celebrate. It was truly priceless πŸ™‚

Okay, so I guess I’m done making kwento!
