Inspired Cupcakes

I had planned a visit to my friend Pam today as she has been laid up with a bad back. Cupcakes! I thought, sure to cheer anyone up.

I was also very happy when wondering how to transport them, I found some cake boxes that I had ordered from the Kitchen Krafts catalog. If you've never looked through it you find all of this great stuff you never knew you needed. But how cool to have a baker's box to put the cupcakes in. Who cares how they taste (although they are great) the presentation is a perfect 10!

This sanding sugar is from Market Basket. In the bakery section they have a little stand with the most BEAUTIFUL colored sugars. Blue and pink and light green. (yes, you can go to Williams-Sonoma and pay double for your sanding sugars as I have in the past - sorry, Peggy! - or you can pay two bucks at the M.B.) If you are into this kind of thing, if you are a baker, then colored sanding sugars really get your attention. I just bought it because I couldn't resist the color and thought putting it on the strawberry cupcakes would be like eating a little piece of Spring.

Ok, the whole while I am listening to Adele's new CD, "Rolling in the Deep". Where do I begin? As inspired and transformative as any songstress I have ever heard. She is amazing and today she inspired cupcakes.
