the office: "She really is sweet and simple like a lady baker."

I don't think any one's first description of me would sweet and simple lady baker.  I am notorious for my awful cooking skills, however, I do love treats.  The other night I spotted some mini brownies with cream cheese icing in the grocery store, but at around $7.50 for a dozen, I figured it was simple enough that I could give it a try at home. 
First I whipped up some box brownies and used my mom's cream cheese icing recipe.  
When the brownies were cool, I cut them into miniature squares and put the icing in a ziploc bag - with the corner cut off - to frost.
While not professional, I think they turned out pretty cute!  I will definitely keep these in mind for parties, especially something like a baby or bridal shower!  I just need to figure out a way to cut the brownies so the edges are clean...
