Most people who know me well have come to an understanding that I have an incurable obsession with all things cute. Today I came across the tiniest clementine which subsequently resulted in a squeal of delight.
Not only was this microcitrus adorable, but it was also very sweet and amazingly delicious. Yes, I truly believe that it tasted better because it was cute. I have decided to call this abnormal, likely psychological effect: the cutie appeal.
A few weeks ago I decided to make tiny red velvet cupcakes with an amazing recipe I found on allrecipies.com.
Needless to say, the cuteness made all the difference.
Another visual for size reference:
So next time you have the opportunity, go mini! You might be surprised by what your taste buds tell you.
***For those of you who might have been concerned, Jinnee was not given a mini cupcake but a mini milk bone for her modeling efforts.
