Normally, I'm not a huge fan of cupcakes. Too much cake with not enough icing. I'm crazy about icing! But last year when my parents bought me a birthday cake at Another Touch Bakery, they saw these cupcakes that were frosted with 3 inches of butter cream icing. They bought a few of them and they were fabulous!
My dad bought a box of these cupcakes for my sister's birthday and sent over half of the box home with me. Um.. yeah. They lasted two days! I LOVE those cupcakes!I don't think you can appreciate the icing from this picture! I should have held one up or something. Hmm... maybe I should just go buy one today so I can take a picture of all that yummy icing!
The Bad but Fun Cupcakes
Before Valentine's day, Aiden picked out a cupcake kit. With everything that happened around that time, we never got around to making them. Finally, last night when Aiden asked what we were going to do I asked if he wanted to make cupcakes.
Aiden was the most excited about decorating the cupcakes with candy: sweetarts and nerds.
These are Aiden's finished cupcakes! It made me laugh because I couldn't help comparing them to the cupcakes decorated by my bloggy friend, Heatherlyn's children.
Aiden was much more interested in eating the candy than decorating with it. We all tried one of the cupcakes, but ended up tossing them. They were awful but we had a lot of fun making them!
