Cupcake Richard

A Friday probably doesn't get much better than this

I'll be honest - I wasn't at my best this morning. At noon I was still in my PJs, staring with tears in my eyes at my inbox, and on my 3rd cup of coffee.

And then, something amazing happened. My tears of anguish turned to tears of joy. Because this was brought right up to my door by what I can only assume was an angel:

That is right. A box of cupcakes. Twelve, to be specific.

Had I been in a more presentable state (read: looking less like I might be a skollie) I would have given her an enormous hug. And then I would have caught her and kept her in my kitchen forever. Ok, I don't mean that really. I'm not usually that creepy.

It was beautifully packaged with great attention to detail, and complete with beautiful little heart-handled spoons and the hand-written note above.

Turns out that there was in fact an answer to the question "Why?" surrounding this cakescapade. Cupcake Richard has a campaign called Cake Bomb. How is works is, you nominate someone who you feel makes Cape Town a little bit nicer, with a little motivation, and Lee nominated me!

I'm so touched, and so excited. This is such a neat, good-vibe campaign.

And for anyone wondering, those cupcakes are as good as they look. You should keep an eye on Cupcake Richard and if you know someone who you believes makes Cape Town a little bit nicer, go on and nominate them.

Thank you Cupcake Richard, and thank you Lee <3

(I had an espresso with my cupcake - and for anyone wondering, my espresso cup is from Cabo Collaboration.)
