My girlfriend had a baby a year ago today at twenty six weeks, and she wants to have a little party by the East River for him, so I am making some cupcakes. Most of them are vanilla and some of them are chocolate, because you always get somebody who won’t eat a cupcake unless it’s chocolate. I poured the batter into a big sheet pan, and I’m going to cut out little circles with my biscuit cutter. It’s faster than trying to pull them out of muffin tins if you have no papers, and they look cute. I’m going to decorate them with M&M’s and sprinkles. It will only be the second time that he has been unplugged from all of his machines that keep him living and breathing, so we have to make it worth his while.
