Newly tattooed and Flower cupcakes

I finally got the tattoo I have been wanting... Unfortunately I have really fat feet and it is nearly impossible to get a cute picture of my tattoo without my feet looking ginormous. But I like it a lot despite the ugliness of my poor feet.

I have been in the baking mood all week.

I made 2 pans of disappearing marshmallow bars earlier this week, and tonight I made a bunch of cupcakes. Michael took one pan of the bars to work, and... we ate the other one. By ourselves. In less than 24 hours. We're pigs.

But they are so so so good.

Anyways, I had an excuse to make the cupcakes tonight.

Well, sort of anyways. I am taking them to work... I always like taking treats for the kids.

I made 15 big ones, and 24 little ones. The little ones are the share with the room next door as well, and the big ones might become a bribe/prize for a coloring contest we're going to do tomorrow. Should be interesting.

Anywho, they turned out cute even though the flowers I made are a little crappy. I like that they aren't perfect though. They are kind of doodle-y, even though that's not a word I think it's a good way to describe them.

I didn't frost the cupcakes very well... on purpose... I knew you wouldn't really see them and I think they look kind of cute all swirly like that.

Here are the backs of the flowers... I just used candy melts and drew them out on wax paper.

And here is a finished one... that one end got broken off of... and was therefore immediately eaten by me.

The whole group. Pretty cute, huh?

I like them. And I think the kids will too... the girls at least :) The boys will probably think they are too tough to eat cupcakes with flowers on them.

A few leftovers.

I wish I could stay home and bake things all day. My flowers would probably look much better if that were the case.

It's a good thing we got our treadmill today because I ate a little too much frosting during this project. Gross.


  1. These are soooooo cute!!! How did you learn to do the candy melts that you draw out??? WOW...great idea. Your kids at school are so lucky!!! Oh, yeah, and your husbands office too! I need to do that for my husbands office! They would die of shock! LOL.

    I must go look up the Psalm in your tattoo...pretty cool. I love that.

  2. Psalm 119:105

    Your word is a lamp to my feet
    and a light for my path.

    How awesome is this.....

  3. Thank you! I had seen the flowers somewhere online recently and thought it was cute. I just melted the chips in the microwave then poured them into little squeeze bottles so I could draw it out. You could put them in frosting bags too but I didn't have enough... But yeah, they turned out pretty cute :) And thanks about the tattoo too! I like it!
