(Don't) Let Them Eat (Cup) Cake(s)

Who knew something so small as a cupcake could have such power over the brain? Ok, well everyone knows I suppose. 

Like most offices we celebrate co-worker's birthdays with the usual confections; cake, cupcake, cheesecake, etc etc.  Today happens to be a co-worker's birthday and guess what is sitting in our lunch room??? Those cute little cupcakes from Safeway that sit behind the glass, because they're too fabulous to be in a generic box, waiting for someone to take them home. 

Cue the sheer white knuckle panic attack.

It took 3 friends and my husband to talk me down from the ledge today after which I sped off to Starbucks for an Americano with SF vanilla syrup.  I just may need to buy stock in Crest White Strips after this prep so I can make back a little money on having to brighten up my smile. 

With my Carb Zombie in full effect today I shall only be going back in to our lunch room to fetch the groceries I have placed in our fridge at the end of the day. Oh and to get things off of the printers, but that's IT!
