Ro - Cupcake Maker to the Stars....

Or at least the star of our super-cute nephew DoodleBug who just turned four last month! DoodleBug had a Yo Gabba Gabba-themed party for his school friends, so I offered to make cupcakes. (Somehow I decided that my month-long obsession with cake decorating in 1985 prepared me for this task.)

I'd never used fondant before and was frankly a little afraid of it (the hack who made my wedding cake* refused to use fondant because it "tastes so nasty."). However, there was no reason to fear the fondant. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to use and it really didn't taste all that bad (although I definitely prefer my buttercream icing).

The cupcakes turned out pretty darn good, if I might say so myself:

And had I not made them, I wouldn't of heard the comment of the day at the party, courtesy of one of the moms:

My favorite character is the pink one. What's her name? Fupa?

*Unlike most brides, I didn't get to select the baker who did our cake. Our reception was at venue that required us to use their vendor, a lovely piece of work who, within the first 5 minutes of our converation used the word "colored." As a noun.

Okay, the "fupa" comment was the first thing to make me laugh out loud all day (night?)

The cupcakes look so yummy! You done good!

Mama Bee said...

**in shock**

Wait, who is this?

This can't be THE Ro. The Ro that never posts on her blog anymore?!

Okay, okay, I'll stop harassing you! Those cupcakes are fucking ridiculously cute. I think one of my ovaries popped just looking at them!

Next, I challenge you to do a cute Cailou cupcake. ;)

It IS me! Shock, I know!!!

Mama - I don't think it's possible to do a cute Cailou ANYTHING! God. That kid is ANNOYING!

DSB - Hey lady! Sorry I didn't respond to your question earlier. Nope, no more derby for me. A fractured and displaced coccyx ended my career almost before it began! :( You???

HippieSister - Yep. I'm all yours! :-)

The nba jerseys have now played five games since they traded Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Nenad Krstic and Jeff Green, and they have won them all.

It’s safe to say that we are at the point where we can begin to accurately predict how the Celtics will fare in the playoffs with wholesale nba jerseys.

The initial backlash from Perkins’ fans has died down, and people can finally turn the page and focus on the current squad. Let’s examine five of the reasons the Celtics are still the title favorites despite the loss of nba jerseys store.
