Let Them Eat... Cupcakes!

One of Ms. Thang's Christmas gifts this year was a 53 piece cake decorating kit from Wilton. She is an aspiring chef, and wants to be well rounded, and asked for some cake decorating items. Last night she let me borrow it so that I could make cupcakes to bring in to share with our class for my birthday. Let me tell you... cake decorating is not as easy as it looks. You have to hold the bag and the tip a certain way, and use the right technique... etc. I have a new appreciation for all the gorgeous cakes and things that our bakery makes. She doesn't charge nearly enough. I am so proud of them.. I thought I could come and share them here. I bought a cute book called "Hello, Cupcake!" at the book fair this year.. and these were inspired by that book, but not exactly from it.

Those look good enough to eat. Or maybe plant.

On the rare occasions I delve into baking someone like cupcakes, I'm lucky if the entire top has frosting let alone something that fancy.

Nice work!
