star_maple: (Baking: cupcake)

So I brought the pumpkin cupcakes to the DAR meeting this afternoon, as it's a potluck. And then I watched as not a single person touched one. They don't look diseased or anything, do they? I mean, come on, they're from scratch! They were the only item on the table not touched! And it's not like they didn't like the format (lemon muffin/cupcakes to the left were decimated) or the flavor (pumpkin pie to the right was practically fought over and much commented upon).

At the end of the meeting, I packed them all back in their container and said something like, "Well, I'll have one, if nobody else will," and I think enough people overheard me that they were guilted into at least taking one "for their husband", even if they didn't eat any. But I still have more left-overs than I thought I would.

Anybody want a cupcake? :(

Don't feel bad. My experience with things like that is that people get into the habit of taking certain things at potlucks and then anything remotely outside the format of what's always brought is just regarded with shock and confusion. I've done that with family stuff so many times. "Oh, everyone always brings the same thing and this looks sooo delicious, so I'll put some variety in" only to watch no one touch it. If it makes you feel better, if I were nearby, I'd be stuffing my face with them as we speak. :)

Their loss!!
Yeah, you know they took it home and downed that bad boy. Away from judging eyes.
