Mashed Potato Cupcakes

Whilst eating dinner (sausages, mash, peas) last night, W(4) decided to roll some mashed potato into a ball, cover it with sauce and place a "cherry" pea on top. At first I was horrified. This child is queen of playing with her food and manages to do just about anything possible with food apart from eat it. She can take a good 30 minutes to dissect an Oreo biscuit - pulling it apart, licking off the filling, and nibbling both biscuits as slowly as a mouse. It drives me crazy. But I began to see the genius of her ways, as H(2), who NEVER eats mashed potato, suddenly decided that mashed potato cupcakes were the yummiest things ever! Win.
