I don't know when they invented this stuff -- but it is GENIUS. Really...until Lilly was born, I didn't even know it was available. BUT IT IS AWESOME...
|It has a shelf life of about 20 years -- and costs $1....|
|Of course, after the frosting comes the SPRINKLES...|
|It's not possible to actually "sprinkle" these things on. Best pour them in a saucer (or the frosting lid) and then ROLL the frosted cupcakes. The whole point of sprinkles is full COVERAGE...|

Also, many times, we are making something for Lilly to give as a gift. Cupcakes for her other grandparents, or cookies (yes, from a refrigerator tube) to take to Aunt Ada's house. So, the actual lesson isn't so much about creaming the butter, y'know??
