The 52 cupcakes series is in honor of one of my chemotherapy buddies. When we were undergoing chemotherapy, people would bring cupcakes and other treats to the chemotherapy “lounge”. We would smile, laugh, and talk about how we were so nauseous and that all we could eat was saltine crackers and Sprite. My friend said, “If we survive this disease, we should eat a different cupcake every week for the rest of our lives.” My friend did not survive. So I am doing what he suggested…making a different cupcake every week for a year. Every time I make a new cupcake and lick my fingers, I think of him and his zest for life. So eat a cupcake today and remember to always lick your fingers.
