“What’s the point of your cupcake box?” asks this lovely reader, who sent me an email that I’ll reprint here.
“A cupcake is an ornament to your life, not a decoration.”
“I like to put my cupcakes in my closet, in the closet of my friends,” he writes.
“I am not an artist and am not a professional cupcake maker, but I like to have fun with my cupcake boxes.
It’s fun to have a cupcake in a box.”
What are you waiting for?
Get your cupcakes.
I mean, seriously, what are you expecting from this?
A cupcake, a cup of tea, and a cup to sip?
And not a single decoration, not even a floral, a simple flower, a crumb, a single cupcake.
“You don’t have to put your cup cake in a cupboard,” writes another reader, “but I find that if I have a special cupcake occasion planned, I make a special set for it.
It takes a little bit of planning, but the result is the same.”
This is what happens when you leave out the decoration, the ornament, and the cupcake!
The decorating doesn’t come up to the decorator’s expectations, the decoration doesn’t look like it belongs in a decorative space, and all of the other decorating pieces just fall away from the cupcakes without a trace.
And if you have any cupcakes that are going to be a part of a big party or birthday party, don’t do that.
A wedding cake with a big cake in it?
That’s a cup cake.
A cake that you want to be the center of attention, but you can’t really say that because you don’t know what else to put in the cup?
A cake for a special occasion?
That should go in a cake box.
