I am lucky enough to have my mom in town for Mother’s Day this year. Keeping that in mind, I wanted to do some sort of fun mother/daughter activity. After a little research and some online browsing, I decided to rent a tiny house for the two of us in Ybor City, FL and then journey over to Weeki Wachee Springs (where the mermaids live). The only problem was the tiny house was only available for next weekend which left me gift-less for the actual holiday itself. Naturally I decided that some sort of craft/homemade treat was in order, and I hit the inspiration jackpot when I came across this Instagram page. Monogram Cupcakes. Exactly the sort of thing that I was looking for! I did make a few adjustments, you know, to Julie-fy it a bit. I shrunk things down and made mini cupcakes, added a few sugar wafer butterflies here, a strawberry cookie mushroom there, but all in all, I was really pleased with how it turned out.
My mom was so excited when she saw it. 10/10 would make again. Of course you know this didn’t exactly fix my “no gift on actual Mother’s Day” since I gave it to her already. Clearly I didn’t think that one through. Oh well, we’ll just have to do brunch on Sunday. Oh no! Not brunch! Anything but brunch! Is it still considered a gift if it’s also sort of for you?
