The Real Deal
By now you all must surely know that I LOVE cupcakes. Not really the actual cupcakes to eat but everything you see made with them from placemats to paper. My cupcake obsession led me to buying the Giant cupcake pan by Wilton. I figured my daughter's birthday was the perfect occasion to try it out. The first picture is my attempt at the cupcake. It's going to take some practice. I decorated with icing that wasn't firm enough so it got kind of drippy on me. Both my boys want me to make this cake for their birthdays in March so I'll be getting more practice soon. I made regular size cupcakes too just in case we didn't have enough cake. My daughter's favorite color is purple thus the purple cupcakes!
My daughter turns 14 tomorrow. Can someone tell her to stop growing up on me?! We had her family party yesterday. Here's the birthday girl with her cake. She's such a sweet girl. Usually easy to please and doesn't ask for much. She loves family and traditions. She loves the family birthday parties. Loves to have her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins come over. She wanted to delay opening her presents as long as possible because she didn't want everyone to leave. I have a feeling she will always have this love of family.
