Well, the cupcakes I made for National Cupcake Day were a hit. With some help from my good friend Living, Loving, and Laughing in the Loo, who made some of the designs on the cupcakes (see fly on dog poo), we were able to create a fun Sunday afternoon. My favourite were the mama and baby pandas and owls (I did the pandas and my friend did the owls). Too cute! Everyone at work seemed to enjoy the work put into them, and enjoyed eating them.
As well, I was able to raise my goal of $200 to go towards the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society. And, maybe when we move in to our new house we can adopt one of the older cats from there or an older dog.
Cupcakes were marble (so I got both the chocolate and vanilla crowd). Some had chocolate frosting, some fluffy vanilla, some both. We used both blue and green sugar icing, to make the effect of grass or a nest, or poo. All of the characters were made with marshmallow fondant.
All in all, it was a success and I had lots of fun doing it. Next year I will have to up my game somehow.
