I know, it’s really Friday, but It’s Cupcake Saturday party time at Bloggedy Blog Blog and our cupcakes have to be posted by midnight tonight.
I do not know anything whatsoever about decorating cupcakes as you will see in the photo of my efforts. You bake cupcakes and then you eat them—that’s always been my modus operandi. The flip-flop cakes for our pool party were my first decorating efforts. Since cupcakes are small, I tried to keep it simple this afternoon in making a batch as a treat for the little girls in our neighborhood.
The Cupcake Saturday party gave me the opportunity to try Wilton’s new cupcake decals. Made from edible paper, they are supposed to melt into your freshly-iced cupcakes, leaving only the image on the surface. They look great in the picture on the package, perfectly blended into the cupcake icing. On my cupcakes, the decals just look like odd bits of paper-toweling stuck on top. I’m sure it’s my fault.

Style-wise I didn’t do so well. Pleasing the kids, however, I did great. A pink princess ribbon wrapped around each cupcake thrilled the girls. If they’re happy, then I’m happy.
Perfect to share for the cupcake party is the following video created by Kirsten Lepore. It’s entitled “Sweet Dreams” and tells the adventure of a cupcake longing to sail across the sea to fulfill a dream.
One more little thing to share: I have a giveaway coming up early next week. In the meantime, hop over to see what cupcake delicacy Miss Saucy has created as well as other bakers on her Mr. Linky list.
