Birthday Cupcakes!!!

Imagine my surprise after a month of working and bringing in goodies to the staff when my boss asks me if I can make something special for the Dean and her assistant who happened to have birthdays on the same day. Big surprise right? Yeah, I don't think so. Everyday I have a random teacher come by and ask if I have anything. Sheesh. I spoil them, but they may start to hate me if they get fat. You can't fault the baker when you're the taker. Anyway, I love my job. I am so happy to be there and I love the people I work with. I have so much fun with everyone, especially when I bring in treats.

My big dilemma here was I had no idea what to make. As I am sitting in my office earlier today I overhear a handful of people in the office next door to me talking about sweets. Of course my ears prick up, so I walked next door and asked for suggestions. You know what I get as an answer? "Whatever you want, be creative!" Boo. Worst answer ever. My only real stipulation was I wanted to use buttermilk because I have a ton right now. I finally nagged them into suggestions. One, make it gooey, in other words, put stuff in it so it explodes like the eclairs. Okay. Second suggestion, chocolate, because everyone likes chocolate. Third suggestion, oh wait, there was no suggestion. It amazes me how people are so opinionated, but when I ask their opinion about baked goods, they are put into a stupor. I guess sugar does that to you.


They probably won't ever see that, but now they can't say I don't care.
