Cupcakes and Updates!!

Hey all!
I am so bad about posting regularly :o(
I have so many projects to blog. Of course I don't have pictures of them yet. I am working on reupholstering a total of 5 chairs at the moment. I am having a hard time finding the fabrics I want to use. I can see the fabric in my head but the fabric stores just don't have what I want. I have a pillow case that I am embroidering for a friend for her birthday (her birthday was in April). Yeah I am really far behind, but it is very close to being done.

I do have one thing to share. I made cupcakes and a cake for my churches picnic. The first I call Monster Strawberry Cupcakes! They are strawberry, with colored vanilla icing. I used a grass tip for the first time! The first couple were a bit weird but towards the end, I think they looked better. I added oreo halves for the mouths. They were inspired by cookie monster cupcakes seen here.

Next is a fish bowl cake that I saw on Better Homes and Gardens. I have made several and really enjoy making them. I used yellow cake mix and added sprinkles in the mix. Blue Icing, nerds for the fish bowl rocks, and gummy fish!

Till next time same penguin time...same Penguin channel!
