Wouldn’t you know it, I’ve got myself a little tradition at work. I’m not sure how this went from being a one-off to a regular occurrence, but it seems now that whenever someone leaves (because of retirement or whatnot), they get sent on their way with a lovely gift-box of cupcakes from me.
I made lemon cupcakes with a raspberry-cream cheese frosting for my boss, whose last day before maternity leave was technically today. Since the office was closed for New Year’s Eve, though, I brought them in for her last week.
I was really happy with how they turned out…the flavours pair together very well, and they were such a nice change from the standard Christmas sweets that had been everywhere for the last month.
Evidently, I have a reputation as the Cupcake Girl, because I don’t even have to be present when the cupcakes are discovered. She showed up at my cube a half-hour after I had arrived and deposited my package: “Did you leave cupcakes on my desk?” Of course I did…who else would it be? 😉
Have a safe and happy New Year!
