Hi, I'm Molly, and I'm addicted to frosting

There were cupcakes at work on Wednesday.

Three giant boxes randomly arrived from Sprinkles just as I was about to go on my break, which means it was destiny.  I don't know why we were gifted with them, but I'm not going to question it.  Cupcakes - well ok, pretty much all baked goods - are generally the excuse for the "lazy" part of my lazy veganism.  If it has sugar in it, I'm probably going to eat it.

I've only had a Sprinkles cupcake one other time in my life and I don't remember it having as much frosting as this one.  I think a good frosting-to-cake ratio on a cupcake should be 1:2 - as in one part frosting and two parts cake (that's how ratios work, right??) - and this cupcake nailed it.  Meaning I bit into it and was like "holyshitsomuchfrostiiiiiiing."

I always separate cupcakes by breaking them in half horizontally so I can eat the cake part first and the frosting part second - best for last.  I was a good part of the way into the frosting half when I had to stop and consider. 

My 29-year-old brain thought "This is a SHIT TON of sugar.  Do I actually want to eat this whole thing?  And at 11:15am?"  And then my 9-year-old brain took over and was like "Hahahahahaahaaaaa DUH."  So I did.

And then my next two hours were spent dancing around and smiling a little too enthusiastically at customers while I embraced my heart palpitations.  I swear that at one point I was even singing that song from the The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy wakes up from the poppy nap.

And then four hours later I was cranky and ready for a nap... or another cupcake.  Sugar is a hell of a drug.

New bloggins!

Hey pals!  How's January treating you?  Terribly?  Well, have no fear 'cause Molly and Drea are here!  Go check out Red Wine and Fruit Hoops.  Yes, right now.

Yep, that's right, we be co-bloggin'.  Andrea had the swell idea for us to have a blog where we each post one photo a day as a way to not only tell the whole world what we're up to (because I KNOW how curious you are, settle down people), but also to keep up with ourselves and live vicariously through one another.  It's gonna be like the old Widget and Sassoon days!  But in visual form!  And with less hard-thinking involved (I hope)!

Check it every day.  Tell your friends.  Reblog.  And please send cake.
