Garden Party Cupcakes

There is something seriously wrong when your fridge is full…

Full of tubs of homemade frosting that is.

And it’s not that I just made frosting for the heck of it, just so I could dip my face finger every time I open the fridge.


I most definitely didn’t make frosting just for that reason…

Or whatever…

Actually those tubs of frosting are left overs. Left over from the 48 cupcakes and 2-two layer cakes that I made this weekend.

Now those were just for the heck of it.

Ok I lied. I half lied. Half of those cupcakes were for the heck of it…and for my butt. Because it really needs it. Especially frosting. Does wonders for bootays.

The other half was for others.

You see, I am extremely lucky that others will tolerate and support my hobby. I love to bake and to decorate, ย Cupcakes more than cakes. They are just smaller…and easier. And when the opportunity arises for me to decorate cupcakes for someone… I get a little giddy.

Especially when it’s a girly theme cupcake.

So much funner ๐Ÿ™‚ (yes funner is a word)

These cupcakes were for a 1st birthday, the theme being a garden party. I used gum paste for the flowers and and butterfly, and green pearl sprinkles. Oh, and luster dust. I love luster dust.

And I love sprinkles. If you really knew how many sprinkles I had stuffed in Baby Boo’s closet…

Hubby knows. He reminds me often.

He doesn’t complain when he’s eating them.

True love folks.

Anyways, I just wanted to share with you my hobby. I love it. It makes me happy. It keeps me sane.

And I love leftovers.

And so does my butt.
