This morning, at 9:00am, Cal played Minnesota. Golden Bears vs. Golden Gophers. And my contribution to the game-watching party (TiVo'd at a friend's house, starting a little after 10am - the game was in Minnesota and we didn't all get up early enough to start watching at 9) was a tray of mini cupcakes. My theory was that if you're gonna eat cupcakes for breakfast, they might as well be tiny cute ones! With Cal-colored decorations! Cute!
Bria, Shanna, you're going to scold me again, but I used Betty Crocker butter yellow cake mix. :-) I had never bought butter yellow - I guess I usually just buy regular yellow...because I was totally caught off guard when the box said to add a stick of butter (in place of the usual oil). That's what I get for buying a box of cake mix just because it's on sale (for $0.99! I mean, come on!), I guess. Oh well, they tasted good. Even if the frosting slid off the tops of some of the cupcakes (theories? I have no idea why this happened. Yes, the cupcakes were cool when I frosted them). And even if half of them got knocked over in the car on the way to Erin's house.
Please enjoy the photos below. I thought the cupcakes were so cute, I had to take a billion pictures. PS - even though the 3rd quarter was a bit shockingawfulterriblehowtheheckaretheynotplayingwellanymore, the Bears won the game. Yay!
