Rannie's Cupcake

My friend Rannie is an amazing person. She's in a vicious fight with cancer, and somehow still manages to stay incredibly positive, despite everything she's been going through. She draws from her love and appreciation of friends and family, and from all that is good in this world.

So Rannie asked for some cupcakes, and a jasmine-mango combination instantly came to mind. I think it's because the fragrance of the flower and fruit is so sweet, while the taste of mango is tart, but they balance each other out. In a way, it reminds me of Rannie's outlook of on the world, the love we have for her, and her appreciation of the people around her. Despite all the pain she's going through, she always tries to make us feel better.
