I never let my children paint in the house, in fact they're lucky they get to use textas (that's Australian for markers). I know it's wrong and all un-motherly and whatnot, but we do what we can, right?
But this past week the artist within me and I learned to decorate cupcakes. My journey began with Cupcake Basics 1, in which I made these...
Hell yes that's the Very Hungry Caterpillar sista.
Two days later I went back for Cupcake Basics 2, and I made these...
Oh yeah baby, that sure is a hand-moulded fondant castle.
I'm still not sure how you eat something like this-- or if you'd even want to, but I can say this, they look gorgeous and after two days of cupcake making mania I feel competent enough to make them at home without supervision.
Needless to say I'm totally looking forward to my next class, though totally not looking forward to my husband's face when he eventually finds the massive box of cupcake making supplies I'll be hiding in the kitchen cabinets.
