a visit from the airy fairies


I have some very exciting news - I have become a cupcake tester! I feel I have been working up to this position most of my life and am exceptionally well qualified for the post, having sampled many thousands of cakes and cupcakes over the years.

Imagine my excitement this morning when there was a knock at the door and a gorgeous box of four beautiful cupcakes was delivered by one of the Airy Fairies herself!

Aren't they pretty?

I feel I have found my vocation in life.

Sue, this is too wonderful ... I had to check the date to make sure it was not early in April!

Please do share some of your cupcake critiques with the rest of us. We could be testers in training.

It was made for me.

Look behind you....
Is that a shadow...
Is it small and round with a big cudgel.....?
