When was the last time you decorated a cupcake? Maybe it was with your family during Christmas, or at a birthday party during elementary school. I don’t even remember when I last decorated a cupcake back home, but I did it last week in Seoul.

Step 1: Went to the counter and chose the 4 cupcake set. Chose the original whipping cream so we won’t have to pay extra.
Step 2: Walked around the store to choose our toppings. Each topping has a separate price.
Step 3: Took the toppings to a table and started decorating.
Step 4: Took the completed cupcakes to the cashier and paid. The cashier showed me the receipt first to make sure she counted the toppings correctly.
Step 5: Took pictures of our cupcakes, and lit the candle for my friend’s birthday. They gave us a match and plastic knife.
