My friend Heather gifted me a Cupcake book for Christmas. If you know me or have read past posts on my blog then you will know I love to bake, and this was the perfect gift!
I was thrilled and of course I want to have a go at making as many as I can. Being a Weight Watcher I had to hatch a plan that would allow me to bake but not consume all 24 cupcakes that could possible be created out of one batch of cake mix!
I devised a devilish plan to bake cakes for my work colleagues. I think in the Weight Watcher world that would make me a saboteur if any of them are watching their weight, but needs must and I need to bake and not pack on the pounds!
I pulled out my birthday list and was surprised to see I did not have to wait very long until I could create some delicious birthday cupcake treats! Birthday Cupcakes should be made for the person receiving not making, so I decided to think long, hard and choose carefully what I would like to present to that friend with a candle on top.
Now, this birthday friend is expecting her third child, luckily I do not fall in to the saboteur category this time!
Sickness has been a problem, but lucky for her McDonalds is close by and she can stomach that.
So the Cupcakes topped with French Fries had to be it, it just make perfect sense!
The big day is today and I cannot wait to present them to her tomorrow during lunch!
Here are some pics taken during the baking process….
