This was a rush order from P._ . Rush, as in he called me the night before he needed the cupcakes. Fortunately, I had time in my hands so I gladly accepted the order.
P._ didn’t tell me what the cupcakes were for. All he said was that he will be bringing these to a date on Tuesday night. I know it’s none of my business but as I started baking until I got to decorating, I got curiouser and curiouser like Alice (in Wonderland). Surely, these are for someone special. What is P._ and his special person celebrating? I can tell during our telephone conversations that P._ was excited. I think he called me more than 10 times and we discussed about how the cupcakes will be arranged in the box, the color of the box, if there is a ribbon, if there will be sprinkles and what color will they be, are the cupcakes dense (they’re soft) and the frosting sweet (it is ganache so it is not cloyingly sweet). He said he set their date at around 7:30 pm so he had to rush from work to pick up the cupcakes and go back to keep his date.
When we finally met, I showed P._ the cupcakes and he said they were as he imagined them to be—impressive I hope! And without me asking, he told me it was for his and his significant other’s monthsary. Aww, ain’t that sweet. I honestly thought he was going to propose and will hide a ring somewhere in one of the cupcakes. Heck, maybe I just watch too many movies.
Thanks P._ and I hope your special someone enjoyed your gift!
