we all know i'm no domestic diva. so when i have to make baked goods for a bake sale or in this case a silent auction at the blue and gold banquet, of course i'm going to use a box mix. oh and a premade tub of icing. these turned out surprisingly tasty. i was proud and bummed that i didn't have more spares to ruin my diet with. never fear. i ruined the diet thoroughly at the banquet. if you're a local, "courtney's" is fabulous.
i do like to get creative with the decorations. and in sticking with the blue and gold theme, i was desirous to decorate in blue and gold. g, not understanding themed parties very well, had other ideas. i had to compromise and let him decorate the outer cupcakes and told myself it was the party confetti.
i got high tech with food coloring. the cream cheese icing got a little yellow added. the leftover bones from the plants vs. zombies birthday party got a little smurf blue. i totally crack myself up. i say that a lot, don't i?
and here's my baby getting his awards. fun times. but wait! there's more! . . .
i tried to post this entry this morning, but i wanted to link the infamous plants vs. zombies cupcakes and couldn't find them. what?! i never posted them here?! egads! i was a very bad blogger last fall.
seriously. are these the coolest cupcakes ever? i was so proud. heck. i'm still so proud. :)
