I wish I could have a full sized tree that looks like a swirl of green frosting with sprinkles. I'd just take little nibbles every day.
My cherry trees are blooming out front and brightening things up pretty nicely even though the blooms are weighed down with rain and drooping toward the sidewalk. It's nice to have something other than dark branches to look at while I walk around the city. These cupcakes probably taste the way the cherry blossoms make me feel.
For my birthday in 2nd grade my best friend gave me a Garfield book that involved a tropical island and sacrificing a woman to the volcano to please the gods and when Garfield decided to try to throw Odie into the volcano instead I thought he was so hilariously clever! Has Garfield ever really been funny? I doubt it. He sure does look good in fondant!
I know most of us here are a bit too young to have experienced a proper soda fountain chocolate malt with a paper straw, but the evocative Norman Rockwell-esque image endures and fills us with nostalgia nonetheless. If only I could drink a cupcake.
