My sister Tina took some of these cupcakes to work and they disapeared in no time flat.

The next day one of her male co-workers tracked her down to thank her for "The BEST" cupcake he had ever eaten.

"I am not allowed to eat on the job, so I wrapped it up and went to put it in my car. On the way, I thought I'd just have a little taste. Well it was so delicious, I ate it all. It was the best cupcake I've ever eaten. I wanted another, but did not want you to think I was greedy.... but did you bring anymore this week?"
