I admit, I jumped on the bandwagon. Last week, I pinned my Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting recipe onto my Recipes board and thought that was that. I had done my part to add to the pumpkin madness.
But then, something happened. Something that has never happened before: people started pinning it. Pinning, pinning and pinning. As in people actually wanted to bake these cupcakes. As of now, over 3,000 people have pinned it in four days.
WHAT the WHAT?
I admit, this makes me nervous. What if the recipe isn't good? What if I miscalculated the amount of sugar? What if their pumpkin cupcakes turn into pumpkin bricks?
Oh great. Now I am sweating. And I don't sweat. I just keep thinking:
I am not a professional baker!
I only have 4 readers!
I talk about SPANX and falling into Portuguese fountains!
But then...BUT THEN, as I was looking at today's statistics (which, really, are just a measurement to make you go crazy), I noticed a new referring site other than Pinterest:
The Slow Way.
Some website picked up the recipe and made it the recipe of the week.
Recipe of the FREAKING WEEK.
I just don't even know.
Apparently people are loving their pumpkin.
Welcome to my freak show, everyone.
