Happy 4th of July!!!
We went to the lake yesterday with a bunch of friends and I decided to make cupcakes like Allison from A Glimpse Inside had talked about. Well, mine turned out a wee bit different, but tasty and fun none-the-less!
Step 1: Bake cupcakes! I NEVER bake, crap… I never cook, so this was a big day for me. They were delish. I HAD to try one out. I didn’t want people getting sick ;)
Step 2: Icing Time! I put a lot of icing on all 24… err.. 23 cupcakes so that the strawberries would really stay on there. While I was doing this Jeremy helped me chop up the strawberries. I apparently bought huge strawberries so we ended up cutting them into 1/8 instead of 1/4.
Step 3: Assemble! I wasn’t looking at the picture of the cupcakes from Allison’s blog, so I just remembered that they were stars. Well, now that I look at the picture we did it way differently! Oh well! Mine remind me of starfish. Which, who doesn’t love starfish??
I should have taken a picture of all 23 cupcakes, but our ride got there and we had to speed on out of the house. (Can you tell that the middle cupcakes was one of the first ones and that was cut into 1/4 and the star is humongous!)
And, the cupcakes went quickly, so I guess they were a big hit!
