she shoots. she scores!

Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Remember the other day when I showed you the cupcake book? Well, today I opened it up to attempt to make some of the cute little cupcakes they’d created. I actually had a reason for making cupcakes this time too! It wasn’t because I was being gluttonous after my yoga class this morning, it’s because I wanted to make something for my sweet neighbors, Mark and Emi. After living a few houses down from us for 5+ years, they are officially moving to the burbs. Sad, isn’t it?

So here’s what I made:

038

That’s kinda supposed to look like Emi and Mark, but don’t kill me for taking a little creative license. Look, this was a first attempt. It ain’t gonna be perfect.

Then I tried to make another set of cupcakes from the book:
Here’s how they turned out.

Again, they are far from perfect, but they were incredibly fun to make and I am a sucker for pastels. Aren’t they just so pretty? So go on. Grab a box of cake mix, icing and candies, and have at it. Because just think, when it’s all said and done, you get to eat what you made.
