Isabel and I ended up manning the cupcake stand at the kickoff party in Marion Square, and they were a huge hit. If you want an easy way to make friends, bake some cupcakes, stand beside them, and wait. People will start to gravitate toward you.
I felt like such a hero giving little kids their fourth and fifth mini cupcakes. They really loved me for it.
P.S. Landon and I have worked at Cupcake together forever. I love him.
P.P.S. Isn't Izzie a natural cupcake goddess? I'm seeing cupcake shop employment in her near future.
