Cupcakes, Beads, and a Peek...


Cupcake

Over the weekend my daughter, Fiona, wanted to make brownies. So we got out the Betty Crocker cake mix and were all set to make brownies. Then she had to see this beautiful cupcake "birthday cake" on the back of the box. (For lots of great ideas for really cute birthday cakes go to bettycrocker.com/birthdays, I want to try them all!) After seeing the "birthday cake" she decided that she wanted to make Halloween cupcakes. Fortunately I had all of the stuff to make cupcakes. With my help she did an outstanding job of decorating her Halloween cupcakes. Of course chocolate is her favorite so they had to be chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing. I helped her with the icing but the sprinkles and candies are all her doing. I actually enjoy making cupcakes because you don't have to be a pastry chef; no matter what you do to a cupcake it always looks good!
