Turns out, when confronted with petite homemade cookies topped with cherry jam and Safeway bakery cupcakes with 1.5 inches of frosting, most second graders will choose the frosting. I can’t say they’d choose the cupcakes since many of them licked the frosting off and disposed of the unwanted cake.
Too bad I can’t bring myself to just bring cheap frosting and a bunch of plastic spoons to classroom parties.
I now have a large quantity of jam-topped sugar cookies. They go really nicely with tea. Does 4pm work for you?
