Decorate Cupcakes

Baking is an important part of learning to write. There’s something about the age-old craft of mixing and stirring that touches the soul and reminds me that baking, like writing, is not just for myself, it is also to be shared with those we love.

Rightly or wrongly, I’ve always viewed the cupcake as a frosting transport system. Those miniature confections give you the opportunity to create miniature, edible masterpieces. This week, use cupcakes as a creative canvas. Whip of a batch of your favorite cupcakes, then decorate them with joyful abandon. Decorating cupcakes is a happy exploration in culinary creativity.

And that, my friends, makes you a better writer.
