13 Reasons I Will Not Be Attending a 12-Step Program

I was invited to join the Cupcake Carnival this week over at Attempting Creative. Below is my 'story' you will find on the site in a few days, so you get a sneak peak, but head on over for more cupcake fun in the meantime. ;o)
Hello, My name is Christy, and I’m a cupcake-a-holic.
Admitting I have a problem is as far as I’m going to go in the 12 step process. I have no interest in the other 11, and I have 13 cupcake links from my blog …from glitter to gumdrops to justify my unwillingness to be a part of any 12-step cupcake addiction program (do you sense denial?!?).
I wish I could tell you it was difficult to find 13 links to share….the only difficult part was weeding through all my cupcake adventures.
I WISH I could tell you I don’t have more than 13 cupcake ideas written down I plan to try…this month.
I wish I could tell you I have an amazing metabolism, and I run marathons. :insert hysterical laughing here:
How about I just tell you the thirteen excuses....I mean reasons I have for loving cupcakes more than dieting?!?!
*Links are attached to each number for recipes, step-by-steps, and sources I gathered ideas from for each post.
1. I love cupcakes, because even insects look cute buzzing around these little beast...I wish I could say the same about my hips and cupcakes!

LEMON HONEY CUPCAKES
2. I love cupcakes because they can improve the un-improvable...I didn't know I could love anything more than a Samoa cookie...until I discovered this....

SAMOA COOKIE CUPCAKE
3. I love cupcakes b/c they come in all sizes....from mini to GIANT....

CUPCAKE CAKE
4. I love cupcakes b/c you can wear them....I make dresses, and Jon-Jons for all my friend's kiddos on their first birthday...to match their cupcake cake (above).

CUPCAKE DRESS
5. I love cupcakes because you don't have to confine them to the dessert menu.

PIMENTO CHEESE CUPCAKES
6. I love cupcakes because you don't have to confine them to the HUMAN race!

PUPCAKE: A CUPCAKE FOR THE PUP
7. I love cupcakes b/c they can wear disguises.

TV DINNER CUPCAKES
8. I love cupcakes because you can disguise them as a drink.

MARGARITA CUPCAKE
9. I love cupcakes b/c you can disguise them as pie.

APPLE PIE CUPCAKE
10. I love cupcakes because when you give up candy for lent, you can make a candy cupcake....maybe I shouldn't be confessing that here....maybe I need to go to church a little earlier this Sunday and think about this a little further....

PEANUT BUTTER CUP CUPCAKE
11. I love cupcakes because you can serve them in jars...and I love jars almost as much as I love cupcakes...

CUPCAKE IN A JAR
12. I love cupcakes because you can link them with the second best dessert ever...the cookie.

COOKIE MONSTER CUPCAKES
13. I love cupcakes because they helped me fulfill my Mom's prediction for my life....I think she always suspected I'd run away and join a traveling carnival someday.

Thanks, Kimberly, for letting me hang out with other carnies, and cupcake addicts! I guess this post makes me an enabler, but what a fun addiction to pursue…and nobody gets hurt….assuming you stay away from the scale, right?

Hello! I'm Kate. said...

So...I'll be at my local bakery at 6:00 am! And then from there I'll head over to the local cupcake bakery...and then I'll attempt to run off all the fantablous calories that came with them!

This post made me want to leap through the computer screen!

I'm in love with all your ideas!!! I did a post a few days ago at the CC. I love your post title, too, so funny! I'm def bookmarking your creative takes on the mighty cupcake! Thanks for sharing...♥Laurie

I love cupcakes because they can be held in your hand and you don't need a plate or fork. I usually can finish one in about four bites.
