A Charlie Brown Cupcake

The Snoopy and Friends Cupcake Kit, including a couple hundred cupcake wrappers and a few dozen toppers, is now shipping. It’s being distributed as a book, so it showed up on my radar, but then it was listed as simply including a recipe card, which is not a book, so I reckoned I didn’t have to buy one for my book collection. But then an Amazon review referred to it having a recipe book. So I had to search out other references… found it was described as having a six-page trifold recipe card. I know what that means… a flat thing with two folds. Judgment call: not a book. Not needed for my collection, and thus I spare myself spending sixteen bucks and change!

(Note: I am not sparing myself getting cupcakes. If I had included this in my collection, I would have wanted to keep it complete, and thus not use the various amusing cupcake papers. Decisions are easier to make when they do not actually involve cupcakes.)
