It's public knowledge that Mama's been sick since her return. Besides the cough and fever she had to deal with, she also has to deal with the side effects of the medications she's been given. Can't tell what it is but it's messy. Really messy.
Mama's also worried that the house is untidy and unclean. She's been putting off the annual property inspection requested by the landlord as well. Also, her friends may come visit her in the coming festival of Eid. Usually, by this time, she'd have several types of yummylicious cookies already baked and stored in piles upon piles of tupperwares and containers in the kitchen. We've seen no such activity this year. So unusual for Mama.
"I'm sick Angelina. Can't be bothered to do all those stuffs. I know that you're looking forward to my choc chip cookies, jam tarts and what not. Tell you what, maybe I can whip up something simple just for you and Brad, OK?" that's what she told me two nights ago.
Thus, I saw her with some eggs and butter that she bought from the corner shop yesterday. Then we heard some commotion in the kitchen, oven doors banging and all that. But none of us dare go into the kitchen while all those were going on. Never know if we may end up in the oven instead. However, there were some serious aroma wafting around the house. Hmmmm....addictive.
Anyway, glad to report that Mama made us some gorgeous looking cupcakes based on her chocolate and orange butter cake recipe. She even put some icing and decorations on them. Oh Mama...we lurve lurve lurve you......
My favourite - orange cupcakes with hundreds and thousands on icing.
Will the cupcakes last till Sunday? Hmmmm...no promises...Brad is wolfing them down two at a time. Such a glutton this boy.
