To Whom It May Concern:

1. Wow, you’ve brought scrumptious, mouth watering, sinfully fattening, cupcakes to work, however; there’s a problem or three with the cupcakes you’ve bought to share; first of all, the cupcakes are small, if you’re going to allow us all to indulge in a cupcake, at least make the cupcake full size, not mini; cupcake are not a delicious treat most of us have often so please, don’t leave us wanting more ( a second cupcake) when you’ve only brought enough for one each.

2. The second issue I have is, your cupcakes aren’t chocolate; a most grevious error on your part, I don’t know who decides to bring cupcakes to work and doesn’t buy chocolate ones; chocolate is beloved by the majority of people and vanilla is boring (even if it vanilla does smell delightful), vanilla isn’t chocolate, it can’t compare; you’ve unknowingly offended at least all the females in our work area by bringing cupcakes which aren’t chocolate; in fact, I’d say my day is ruined, having seen the cupcakes and realized, they weren’t chocolate or even chocolate iced.

3. My third issue has to do with the icing on the cupcakes; I understand, you’re not the baker and you don’t ice the cupcakes yourself, but the icing is the best part of the cupcake; a slightly stale cupcake can get away with being stale, if the icing is to die for; vanilla icing could be satisfying but again, chocolate would have clearly, been the wiser icing choice; as well as choosing cupcakes which were “fully” iced; the baker’s icing style has much to be desired because the baker did not ice to the end of the cupcake, to the cupcake paper edge; icing is the most imperative aspect of a superb cupcake, perhaps, in the future, when you visit this cupcake bakery again, you will choose cupcakes with more icing; while the icing was delicious, there was far to little of it.

 I’m no cupcake expert, but I know what I like when I taste it.

    Well, Anonymous–cupcake size, flavor, and quality of icing. Three crucial criteria indeed. I hope the provider gets it right next time. If we’re going to have a treat, it might as well be a treat!

      Haha. I was jus trying to be one of those annoying people, who doesn’t appreciate the treat, but has to complain. Thanks for reading

        Haha. Thanks I think. Yes, I agree. Just eat the cupcakes, be thankful you got one, no matter the kind/type etc. 🙂

        I wanted to ask you how your answers were coming for your interview? Do you think you could have it for me the first week in July? Let me know thanks 🙂

    Heh, I’ve worked with people who might well have written similar letters. There definitely should be more icing, though…

      Thanks again for reading. Haha, yeah I was going for that annoying person at the office who simply can’t be grateful, but has to ruin a good thing for everyone else. Not to mention, I do think they should always be chocolate lol.


      • mandibelle16 June 18, 2016 / 4:53 pm

        lol. It isn everyone’s? Do you have a favourite kind?


      • Priceless Joy June 18, 2016 / 5:22 pm

        I think it depends on my mood for the day. Usually I would say chocolate but not always!
