Kristen's Cupcakes

Kristen was excited to make fresh Strawberry cupcakes and strawberry frosting. She bought some of all the ingredients that her new Cupcake book instructed.
 The first batch of frosting did not come out so good it was too runny  (she thought margarine was the same as butter, shh, I am not supposed to tell you that). So, Kristen added a whole lot more of the powdered sugar. The after taste of the sugar was a bit strong. Kristen wanted to cry I knew she was really disappointed so I used words of wisdom, "Kristen, you're the best cupcake maker I know." A slight smile at the edges of her mouth, some tears on the brim of the eyes, and a voice in soft low tones, "Thanks". She took another quick run to the store to buy more strawberries for the frosting and topping. The next batch was wonderful. Just needed a little bit of guidance is all.

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. Proverbs 25:11
(Oh, so true.)

They looked so pretty and tasted great! Yum.
Blessings,
