Hi Hat Cupcakes

My dear friend Katie and I made some cupcakes together.  I have wanted to make these cupcakes for over a year.  I got the idea from Bakerella They have always intimidated me.  If I didn't have Katie there, I would have quit half way through making them! 
First, we made the chocolate cupcake. 
Then, we had to make the frosting.  It was a swiss meringue buttercream version.  That is what gave us so much trouble.  If you ever go to make it, make sure you de-grease your utensils first! 
We then had to make the chocolate coating for on top.

They were very fun to make and eat :)
Thanks for looking and have a great week!

Chu Chu Jake's Two!!

Hello All!!  I apologize this is so late.  I had some technical difficulties with the website, but I am back :)
My nephew Jake turned Two May 1st.  He loves Thomas the train.  Leah did a wonderful job with the decorations as always.
She got water bottle labels that were custom made for the party, how adorable!
I made the cake.  It was yellow on bottom, and my new fav chocolate with chocolate chips in the middle for the top layer.  Covered in buttercream.  Thomas is made out of rice krispies covered in fondant.
Jake is my number one fan :)
It was a great party!  I will leave you with a pic of Jake and I.  Thanks for looking!
