Freakin' Cupcakes

I cannot tell you how much time I've spent contemplating the damn cupcakes. Will they be good? Will I food poison everyone? Do cupcakes require a plate or can I just provide napkins? Should I make extra in case my partner in cupcakes forgets? Will I get sick and cough all over everyone's cupcakes? Does it matter if I do? Does cream cheese frosting require refrigeration? And did you know that it IS possible to eat too many cupcakes?


  1. Isn't it amazing how OCD can take the enjoyment out of so many things in life???? The very kind act that you are doing is being ruined by that damn OCD. Good for you for fighting back!!!

  2. I know exactly how detrimental those thought processes can be! Keep fighting and talking back to it! You are stronger!

  3. I have thought the same on so many occasions, baking for others. Countless times have I wondered if I was poisoning someone while baking... Examples include- "Did my counter have chicken blood on it from last night's dinner? Did I wash my hands too close to the batter? My little nephew will be eating what I made, and his immune system isn't as strong as ours... etc, etc, etc."

    It's true, the littlest things seem complicated endeavors when our OCD flares, but we've got this! Not a one person has died yet that I know of, from my baking, so... Keep fighting and doing what you're doing and next time you bake, try to ignore OCD tapping you on the shoulder... (Love the little mad cupcake pic :))
