With Christmas less than a week away,
the co-workers were like little kids
waiting for Santa and his sleigh.
"When are you making cupcakes?" they all asked
with a lot of chatter.
So we sprang from our beds,
and whipped up some batter.
A chocolate cupcake
with a peppermint buttercream
is what we had planned.
With a peppermint cream cheese filling,
so it was not going to be bland.
The finishing touch:
a sprinkle of crushed peppermint and
a small bit of bark
It was just what was needed to
give it a spark.
Then the co-works all exclaimed
as the treats were arranged,
"What a perfect way to end this year
your holiday cupcakes
have given us good cheer."
Until Next Time-
