Stripedy, toppedy, red and blue!

" The sun did not shine, it was too wet to play, so we sat in the house all that cold, 
cold wet day. I sat there with Sally. We sat here we two and we said How we wish 
we had something to do. " 
Dr Seuss, The Cat in the Hat

I saw these little delights in and new I had to make them. I could not wait, and a friend’s hubby’s bday came up, and guess what. They are crazy about Dr Seuss!!! Jipeeeee! Marshmellows, oreo’s, lots of white chocolate and candy strips filled my shopping list. I could not wait. I must say, the white chocolate was on its worst behavior that night. But in the end I think I did pretty good. And yes, a red velvet cupcake, topped with blue cream cheese frosting, was just what the good old dr. ordered! Yummy!

Space odyssey...let’s take flight!

Babies surly are my third favourite thing in the world, at this point. Next to number two, my animals, and number one, CUPCAKES!

So getting the opportunity to make baby shower cupcakes for a little man, coming into the world soon, was a great opportunity. My mind took flight, wondering what to make. I saw these cute stars on twirled wire. I loved it, so I knew I had to make them. Space rockets were also in the queue (his room would be space inspired). And lots of blue...and silver. Oh boy was painting the fondant silver fun. My fingers were covered, my kitchen a silver explosion. It looked like some or other fairy with silver dust got loose in there. I baked perfect vanilla cupcakes, decorating them with all my fondant goodies I made. Delivered them in their bountiful boxes and one pregnant mommy to be was very happy :-)
