This morning was spent making cupcakes...
and learning lessons.
I have always been the kid to not read directions carefully on homework, tests, etc. and apparently I am still learning that lesson at 24 years old. Luckily though, I was able to teach Catherine (one of the children I nanny) a lesson from my mistake.
She is in kindergarten and has homework a few times a week. She gets so frustrated when I stop her to read the directions. Today, she learned that lesson from my mistake and that was a beautiful thing.
Lesson of the day: When a recipe tells you to beat soft butter until creamy, you beat soft, not melted butter, by itself, not with the other ingredients, until creamy and fluffy. If not, you will waste 2 batches of icing and be annoyed with yourself.
