Last week, I decided that I would make some cupcakes for my first Writer’s Club meeting, which was scheduled for Saturday at my place. The basic aim of our meetings is to get together once a month to encourage one another in our various creative endeavours. We found that some of us love writing, some painting or drawing, and others music or dance. For this reason, we’re calling it our Artist’s Club instead. Although we may differ in our creative focus, we all agree that the pursuit of art and creativity in its many forms is essential to a joyful and fulfilled life.
Since most of those attending knew all about my cupcake capers, I thought I’d better make some of the little treats for the occasion. So I came up with the idea that I would decorate some with miniature notepads and pens. I also wanted to try a different cupcake recipe to see if it would be the perfect one I’d been searching for.
Once I had the recipe ready, I began to measure and mix with careful precision. I took it very seriously in order to ensure that I did everything exactly as it was written in the recipe. With the batter looking smooth and creamy, I proceeded to dollop an ice cream scoop amount of batter into each patty pan. Using the ice cream scoop as a measuring tool was a piece of advice given to me by one of my loyal readers, keen to see me find the perfect cupcake recipe.
