simple bunny and lego mini cupcakes....!



...so my boy/girl twins turned 4 this past wednesday!....woohoo!!!...they are offically big kids...and life is finally getting a little simpler....no more strollers, huge diaper bags, pack n plays...the gear situation is much more manageable and we can get up and out of the house in record time these days (well most days anyway)....and for their preschool party they both requested cupcakes...and the only specific request was for chocolate....and one wanted blue frosting and the other wanted purple.....yay! an easy request....especially since it was mid-week....i'll take super easy, thanks kiddos....

...the bunnies were made from an ice cube tray mold that i found at a five below for like a buck...melt some candy melts/wafers in the microwave, fill with whatever color you like then put the tray into the freezer for about 10 minutes.....pop out bunnies and use either more melted candy or food writers to add the face details....(btw-i made these a few weeks ago for easter but then forgot about them because outta site outta mind....)....so these were relatively easy since i had them made already...


...and you get a bunch of these....chocolate mini cupcakes (made from a doctored box mix--add an extra egg and i cup of milk with a generous squirt of chocolate syrup for the liquid) with bunny toppers.....


....and the lego cupcakes were a piece of cake.....just topped with some of these.....which i found at a candy shop in my town......but you can order them here or just google "lego candy" and you can find a few places that sell them...


....to get a bunch of these.....the frosting is just my fav vanilla buttercream tinted with food gels....


.....since mini cupcakes are just too small for the awesome teachers at their preschool....and it's teacher appreciation week this upcoming week.....they all got regular sized cuppies with the same cake and frosting......



.....hard to believe my babies are all grows up (to quote swingers!)....but 4 is a pretty cool age...the baby phase is great for what it is...but i love this age so much more and how their personalities really come though....my little people....

....have a great weekend everyone....beautiful weather predicted for the nj area....and thanks a bunch for stopping by....!
