Merry Christmas!

Dark chocolate cupcakes with a peppermint patty baked into the middle of them with buttercream icing with a hint of peppermint, topped off with half a peppermint patty.  Yum!

Colin's Pirate Party

My son Colin's 3rd birthday was a little over a month after his baby sister was born.  So with a newborn and us still living at my mom's while our house was under construction, I decided to try and keep things simple.  I went with cupcakes instead of a cake.  Not sure how I ever thought making 24 pirate fondant faces would save me time or be easier than a cake.  Oh well, my little pirate loved them, and that's all that matters.  He also loved his pirate cake pops and the surprise visit from his Nana's friend's talking parrot Olly!  Happy Birthday Matey, we love you so much and can't believe how big you're getting!
