cupcakes, butterflies and soccer balls.....

Tomorrow is our sons 6th birthday....so in honor of his special day. I done the mom thing and made cupcakes to take into his class tomorrow. No, these butterfly aren't for him!! Long story short...DD was sick with strep on her birthday and missed out on getting her little birthday party at school. So, I made hers along with his today. I can truthfully say, I enjoyed this baking adventure. All 40 something butterflies, cupcakes and soccer balls!! I gotta add the 2lbs of icing I made...Since I haven't baked anything cool lately. I usually make their birthday cakes in a theme they choose. I must be getting geared up for that! lol

My sweet little helper worked beside me with her 3 yr. old sized apron on......she cracked all the eggs for me and put all the baking cups in the pans. We had such a happy time!

The butterflies are made out of melted chocolate. They look difficult but they're very quick and easy to make!


I found these baking cups at Wal-Mart and thought it would be cute to use soccer ball from the Sporting Goods stamp set by Stampin' UP to make picks to coordinate with the soccer baking cups. To make the picks. (1.) I stamped the soccer ball. (2.) Embossed it. (3.) Punched it out. (4.) Applied hot glue to the back of the soccer ball. (5.) Placed toothpick in the glue. They're ready to use in just a few minutes!



We're headed to town...gotta run! Have a happy evening!! :) ~Lori
