All about the Minions

Dude #2 turned 10 and he loves the Despicable Me movies so a theme for his party was soon found.
I made sweet Minion birthday cakes, angry minion cupcakes, decorated cookies with edible minion prints and of course the M&M’s and skittles were sorted in matching colors.

Stroopwafel cupcakes with cinnamon frosting

Dude #2 didn’t want to treat his classmates to evil minion cupcakes at school, no he wanted something different.

So he went through my cookbooks, pinterest board and found stroopwafel cupcakes with cinnamon frosting.

They were very tasty, everyone loved them and looked cute too, good choice !

Vintage tea party

This year I hosted a vintage tea party for my birthday

I can’t believe I don’t have more pics to share of this lovely theme …. I made brownies, champagne glasses filled with fruit and cream, lemon and fudge bars, apple pie, egg muffins, red velvet cupcakes and little tartlets filled with white chocolate mousse and berries.

Cupcake tasting in Washington

Our first cupcake tasting in  Washington was at Hello Cupcake, we had to celebrate dude #2’s official birthdate so there was no better excuse !
We had 24 carrot (in the back), heart of darkness (left), prima donna for the birthday boy and the one with the bit of chocolate is yet to be named (have to check my holiday diary).

 

 

Our second cupcake tasting was also in Washington, we got some cupcakes to share from the Red Velvet Cupcakery.

 

 

Bad mommy, i had to have the first bite, can you tell they’re jealous ?  But see I shared them ….

 

 

To be honest both times they were good but I was not so impressed by the cupcakes themselves as I was in the choice of flavors and the pretty swirls they made on them.
