Day One: See the cutest cupcakes with handmade white chocolate tiaras on Pinterest and decide you have to make them for The Girl's birthday.
Day Two: Gather up all your gear and spend a solid two hours making enough tiaras to decorate the tops of birthday cupcakes and a birthday cake for the following weekend.
Day Three: Put The Girl down for a nap and haul out all the cupcake stuff to get them ready for later that night. Get a couple practice ones done and fill up your icing bag with more frosting. Set the spatula down and knock the tray of tiaras on the floor. Look down and see a kagillion fragments of white chocolate splayed out all over the kitchen floor. Try not to cry. Curse yourself. Get your camera and take pictures, because that's what bloggers do. Clean up the mess. Call your mom to whine about your idiotic, klutzy move. Put sprinkles on the rest of the cupcakes.
You just can't make this shit up.
Here are The Girl's princess birthday cupcakes, minus a couple dozen tiaras:
I used a boxed white cake mix and stirred in a cup or so of fresh raspberries.
I made cream cheese frosting and colored it blush pink.
Pink cupcake wrappers.
Pink and white pearl sprinkles.
Here's a fragment of the disaster:
And here's the birthday girl:
I took these earlier in the day.
Her brother had just "accidentally" stomped on her toe.
Isn't she pretty? :o)
We're off to party like princesses this weekend.
I'll be back next week.
