Hahahahaha! Me? Make cupcakes? Now, I do enjoy baking, but I don't really like to bake things when 50 or so people will be eating them. I'm always afraid I'll screw something up and my goodies will taste horrible, or I'll burn them, or worst of all a hair will fall out of my head and land in the batter. I don't know if that has ever happened to you all, but I bit into something someone made one time and could have flossed my teeth with the hair that was in there. Barf! And not only that, I don't know how to decorate a cupcake to save my life. Sure, my Cupcake Cuties came out decently, but I chalk that up to pure luck. So yeah, I didn't really want the responsibility of making the treats for Rylie's party.
Lucky for me, my friend Debi loves to make cupcakes, so she offered to come up Friday and help. Yay! So I went out this past weekend and bought cake mix that didn't come laden with tree nut allergy warnings, frosting in a can that I'm assured will make decorating super easy, spray food coloring and sprinkles, all in pink, blue and purple since those are Rylie's favorite colors. I also bought that awesome Wilton Cupcake Stand to display these fabulous cupcakes on at the party.
This should be fun. I guess I better learn how to bake and decorate, since I will probably have to make cakes and cupcakes for our family's birthday parties from now on. And what better way to do it than to just jump right in? LOL I'm hoping for the best and going for something like this...

I'll let you know next week how they turned out. Or maybe I won't. ;-)
