Heart on sleeve, cupcake on neck

{Pink Cupcake necklace, from my friend Robin's Jewelry Box}

I have a self-admitted sweet-tooth, and have stated publicly that I find ice cream to be a suitable breakfast (really! how different is strawberry ice cream from yogurt and strawberries?). If you offer me cake vs pie, I will likely pick the slice of cake. And there is something about a cupcake . . . And no, I don't mean a "portion-control" something, except as in "all for me, none for you" portion. Wow, that sounds so mean. But really, they are 75 cents at your local bakery, get your own. Ah, sweet cupcake, come here and let me peel your paper off, and take a big bite of your sugar-frosted yumminess.

But I digress. See what sugar does to me? This is why I should stick to cupcakes (and cakes, and pies, and ice cream) like the one in the photo above. A) no calories! B) no crazy sugar rush! C) no post-binge guilt! D) my friend Robin sells them in her Etsy shop.

That is a good looking cupcake, are you sure you can't eat it?

Marie Louise said...

Oh! It's IS a necklace. It looks so real. I was thinking, "what is she talking about!" The sugar must be going to her head!
And now you've gone and done it. It's 11pm and I'm craving something sweet. My husband just suggested some grapes. What planet is he from?!

You had me until the very end...I was drooling over it the whole time thinking it was real. How cleer and cute. Cupcakes are the BEST...my all time favorite indulgence!

How compatible are we!! I don't like cupcakes but I do love pie, so we won't have to fight over it.
Only problem, I think I love jewelry even more than you.
Love it and you.
