Cupcakes: Bringing people together all over the world.
It's Spring Break, bring out the carrot cake, deviled eggs, Peeps and spring chickens. Spring chickens? Yeah, spring chickens. Keep reading.
An obvious spring cupcake choice was carrot cake. We decided on this great recipe from Smitten Kitchen. Our favorite part was the Maple Cream Cheese frosting. For several reasons:
1. We love cream cheese.
2. We love cream cheese frosting.
3. We love maple syrup.
4. One time Aimee had a maple-related accident.
5. One of our friends last name is Maples.
You may have noticed a small object in Jessica's right hand. That object happens to be a young spring chicken, named Lucy (short for Lucifer). Jessica used to have unconditional agape love for Lucy (see here). Until Lucy hit chicken puberty (we've all been there). Lucy lost her fluffiness, grew feathers, formed an unusually long neck and an attitude to go along with it.
*We would like to pause to mention that Lucy had nothing to do with our baking experience. We keep a clean kitchen.*
Unconditional Agape Love:
When Jessica realized she couldn't love Lucy in an appropriate fashion, she made the mature decision to deliver her to a new home that would show here the love she deserved. We knew just the place. Needless to say, it was here that Lucy met her soulmate, Chris P Cox.

It was a tale of love and loss for Lucy as Chris had to return to Michigan shortly after this photo was taken. Which has brought us to the conclusion, that the only true love in this dark world is Jesus, our resurrected Savior, and the agape love of spring-themed cupcakes. Yeah, there will be more of those to come. Stay tuned for Spring Break baking.
Love Love Love,
