Thought that Counts
This is a cute story to remind us when loved ones do things for us, we need to be appreciative regardless of what happens.
Yesterday, my beautiful mother slaved most of the day making me a white chocolate raspberry cake. She had to improvise because the recipe called for three round pans and only had two. So, cupcakes were made with the rest of the batter. I had no idea that the frosting called for buttercream frosting. We both agree that it is not one of our favorite type of frostings. Regardless, she continued making it. When the frosting was completed, we both had a taste. It was pretty sweet, as buttercream tends to be, so she added some whipped cream into the frosting.
When the cupcakes and the whole cake were assembled, I gave her a great big hug and told her how thankful I was. We both had a few of the cupcakes and even though we prefer a different type of frosting, it went perfectly with the tartness of the raspberries. I looked over at my mom as my heart melted in love and appreciation for her....knowing all along that it was the thought that counted! 🎂
