For one of my bridal showers, my sister put together an absolutely adorable gift that was me through and through – 12 months of cupcakes.
She knows that I LOVE to bake, and I used to often show up to her apartment in Iowa City bearing sweets, namely cupcakes. She also knows that I am a sucker for cute decorations, so she kept watch for Meri Meri cupcake kits at Williams Sonoma. I have no clue how long it took her to gather all of the goods, but by the end, she had acquired themed cupcake kits from Meri Meri for an entire year.
