I signed up to make some cupcakes to bring in. That sounds all fantastic, but it was not. I got all the supplies, even little baby bottles to top them. Whipped them up. But there was my mistake, I made them at Josh's- not my house. Double the transporting. While driving home last night a jerk driver pulled out in front of me and I had to slam on my breaks. I didn't think anything of it...but then I arrived home to a giant cupcake glob. They all rolled around onto one another.
It was awful. I was up until 12am trying to salvage what I could of them. They're defintely edible, they just look hideous now (I'm exaggerating, they aren't THAT bad, but I'm emotional over this).
I need a new, more secure cupcake transporter.
Anyway, I did funfetti cupcakes- vanilla.
I used white icing, and used my gel dyes to make them this really pretty blue! Be careful when you use the gel coloring, it's VERY easy to go overboard and wind up with a color much darker than you intended.
I used my icing gun to ice these bad boys. The little bottles on top were little toppers I found at Michael's. Then I put some round jimmies on, and they were complete!
I'm getting pretty good with my icing techniques.
I was very upset about the accident, but they're just cupcakes. I can just try again this weekend!
