As the result of my new kitchen aid stand mixer I made cupcakes for the parent teacher conference meetings today. I had my daughter take the cupcakes up to my son school and they told her that the cupcakes were pretty. They asked "Did you makes these?" Yes, my daughter said...my mom made these. Then they said "What about the candy on top, Are those homemade too?" Yes, my daughter said again. Later, I went up to the school to pick up my carrying case (you know it had my name on it). The receptionist said those were some delicious cupcakes. Why THANK YOU...I said. With a big smile on my face especially since this was the first time I made something for complete strangers.
