Birthday Party Cupcakes


If you have read my blog lately you probably know that I was tapped to make cupcakes for my twin niece's first birthday party. After trying out different flavor combinations the 3 cupcake flavor were settled and I set about planning and packing all of the items I needed to make the cupcakes. So with my suitcase packed and a half day of work I was ready to go. We raced to the airport to catch our flight only to have a 5 hour delay for weather. Well they said weather until we got on the plane and then informed us that it was mechanical. How nice of them. So instead of getting in at 9 we got in at 1 am. Luckily the twins were quiet that next morning as we needed some sleep. The party went off with out a hitch. The cupcakes were completed that morning and everyone seemed to enjoy them. This is a picture of the table with the cupcakes on it.

Oh and we had a nice 2 hour delay on the way home too! I love the airlines! And Happy Birthday to me! I'm the BIG 26 today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
