At this point, you might be thinking: 'Sound the trumpets. Whoop-dee-doo.' in that sarcastic tone we know you have somewhere in you. But it's a big deal for us. Plus, you'll get to see what our cupcakes look like without the added 'speeding in my car while taking this pic' look. Can't wait!

This was our first real catering job... oh, who cares that we didn't get paid?! We got paid in compliments... man, I'm cheesy. We knew it went well when people were talking more about the cupcakes than the performances... not that they weren't amazing. A typical conversation went like this:
ME: My mom and I made them.
RECITAL ATTENDEE: Are they available for purchase?
MY MIND: YES! YES, THEY ARE!!! BUY SOME!!!! ORDER!!! PLEASE!!!
ME: Yup. We have a Facebook page where you can order them.
RECITAL ATTENDEE: I just might have to. They were amazing! You should be on Cupcake Wars.
ME: Thank you! (starts to walk away)
RECITAL ATTENDEE: Oh, and you did great at the recital too.

The character decorations were made of fondant. I made most of the characters. Mom made Woody's bandana, the aliens, the three, and Rex the dinosaur. She thinks he looks weird. Uncle Jeff made the star.
See, Rex looks awesome! Now take a close look at Mr. Potato Head's expression. Priceless!
All of the cupcakes, plated.
We finally presented the cupcakes to Billy.
"What character is that?"
"It's Woody!" Aww.
"I eat Woody's face!" -Billy
Billy's brother Pablo was there too. He enjoyed some chocolate cupcake- note the tiny crumbs.
Is this a sign that we make yummy buttercream?
No one sees me eating Mr. Potato Head's face, right?

Stay tuned for three more editions of Cupcake Style, and hopefully more to come!
KIM: Hey Billy, do you want a cupcake?
BILLY: (running around kitchen) Pupcake! Pupcake!
KYRA: Hey Billy, are those the best cupcakes ever?
KYRA: (grabs cupcake to rip it into small pieces)
BILLY: (grabs my arm) That's my pupcake! Hey!
KIM: So Billy, what do you want for your birthday?
BILLY: Um... pupcake!
He is the most adorable little kid.
We baked the cakes, went to the airport to pick up Grandma and Grandpa, came home, frosted them, and went to Grandma and Grandpa's at 10:30 to deliver them.
These were a bit dry. We mixed the vanilla batter with chocolate batter, but they were two separate recipes. They didn't really work together that well, but they were still pretty yummy! Definitely not our best work, though. I'd advise to actually get a marble cupcake recipe.
