Cupcakes and headaches

Last night we had yet another committee meeting last night about this 20 000 square metre store that wants to open next to us. It ended in political mud-slinging when various members began arguing about whether we should get the local DA or COPE folks involved (two South African political parties). What a headache!

I am the youngest person at these meetings but I am often tempted to stand up on my chair and tell the lot of them to grow up.

Oh well, at least we got stuff planned and accomplished. I can't make the next meeting. What a pity ;-)

When I got home I treated my headache with my usual therapy - baking. Roo had ordered cupcakes from someone, but got dropped at the last minute. I recommended her to cupcake miracle worker Angel, but because it was just so last minute with no notice, Angel couldn't fit her order in. I said I'd do it, so here are the results:

Roo seems to like them.

20 000 square of what Tam?

Hmmm, like those cupcakes there I do.

Tamara said...

Po: Good! I was using "Princess" as my theme ;-)

Helen: Will have to make a plan to eat cupcakes in the botanical gardens some time!

Brazen: Thanks.

Shayne: They are heart-shaped jelly beans that Woolies was selling for Valentine's Day.

Paula: Cupcakes fix a lot!

Angel: Well, they're not as glamourous as yours, but I tried. We're in the public objection phase now, which closes 10 March. Then council has to respond. It will hopefully go to a tribunal. May take months or even years - they still have to get permission for rezoning, do an EIA and so on.

Damaria: Ja, I think I ate a bucket of icing while I made them. Quite a sugar high ;-)

Cam: Mailed you an answer. The cupcakes like you too. See how they're smiling?
