Who isn’t living a totally over-committed life these days? If you can’t slow down, especially while you’re whipping up buttercream frosted cupcakes for end of school year parties, can I persuade you to steal a quiet moment with a cupcake?
Here’s my recipe for the Om of Cupcakes. Take one part chocolate raspberry-infused buttercream cupcake and add one part local coffee shop with a window seat. Omit cell phone; substitute “oops!” if you later see missed calls. Variation includes reading a copy of “Hello, Cupcake!” or “What’s New Cupcake?”
This recipe for about twenty minutes of relaxation should be repeated daily to enjoy the full, long-term benefits.
