My daughter wanted me to buy this and make cupcakes or a cake on Monday for her since she wouldn't be home on her birthday. I said I would try to get back to Market Basket on Monday during day and hopefully be able to make cupcakes or a cake for her.
I never made it back to Market Basket. I wasn't financially prepared to buy frosting and cake mix. That's just how it is sometimes in our life.
Then the following weekend that my daughter was expected to be at my home and have a birthday party on that Saturday, I had the extra to buy this 99 cent frosting (I thought it was MORE than that in price before) and some funfetti cake mix.
I surprised my daughter on that weekend she was with me with cupcakes as she returned home from school. This was my way to say "I didn't forget" and to make up for not being able to do this the week prior. Having cupcakes Friday night was also a great way to start off the birthday party celebration weekend!
You have to have fun sometimes and splurge a little on the yummies in life ... that was what this was all about! Well, that and making my daughter smile big for her birthday weekend.
