My Dear Wife and Sister-in-Law surprised me with these last night. It's a cupcake representation of the periodic table - well, the first 41 elements - in celebration of my 41st birthday. What a sweet thing to do. Made my day. Thanks!
I took them into work today and let me tell you, if you're ever in desperate need of a pick me up, just load 41 chocolate cupcakes into a car and drive around for an hour. I arrived at work in the best mood ever.
This geeky "birthday cake" was much appreciated by my co-workers, too. There was substantial curiosity over whether anyone would take the Arsenic cupcake. I'll end the suspense - Viola Zuppa did.
