Healthy Cupcakes?


I recently hosted a birthday for my fantastic yoga teacher and excellent friend, MC. She is, not surprisingly, a first-rate health nut but she has a secret crack in her armor of good habits: she loves icing.

I decided to celebrate this passion of hers  at her party by using cheap grocery store cupcakes to serve as candle holders. They were the best use of a bad cupcake that I can think of.

See below the result

It is her retreat in Tulum, Mexico that I attend every year and that jumpstarts my energy, passion and commitment to an authentic life in a way nothing else can.

About novelkudos

After working as an interior designer for 20 years, I am putting out a novel that borrows heavily from my experiences in the design trenches working in New York City and San Francisco. To protect those who inspired my characters I am writing under a pseudonym. I am a lover of food, books, both hi and low-brow, travel, yoga, teenagers (especially when they aren't mine!), entrepreneurialism, astrology and pretty much anything that is credibly woo-woo (and no, to me that isn't a contradiction in terms!).
