Saturday I had one of those moments. I had one tub of icing and 20 cupcakes to ice, so I had very little wiggle room. But white icing is boring, and my attempt at shades of blue turned into "You're having a baby boy!" really quickly and wouldn't get darker. And then a passing thought of "I wonder if I could make purple" quickly turned into the vocalization of "hey look, purple!"
I encourage you to embrace these moments, because it's too easy to get discouraged. I'm not very good at it so far, but I'm learning. Can you think of a little moment of triumph when a small risk (like food coloring in icing) paid off? I'd love to hear about it!
