Presidents' Day Cupcakes!


So does anyone get excited about Presidents' Day?? Aside from it being a long weekend and all in the US, I kinda look forward to the goofy commercials that come on about all the Presidents' Day sales. Like this one....



Is that weird?? And to make it extra special I made little Presidents!


To make the little presidents, use the same basic technique as described here.  They are made from Hershey Kisses, vanilla flavored Tootsie Rolls, candy melt and edible food writer.  The cupcakes are from I Am Baker's best chocolate cake recipe (they are indeed the best chocolate cupcakes!) and then iced with homemade buttercream tinted red and blue, by just painting the inside of the piping bag with food gel colors.


And in case you can't tell, these are our Founding Fathers, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson


and Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt


And Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan (to be non- partisan of course!)


And you get some fun cupcakes to start off your long weekend (if you have one!)

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
Hope you had a great week, and an even better weekend! Fridays always make me happy and this is no exception.  We leave for Disney for the first time ever this Sunday and can't wait to tell the kiddos that morning! I still have ALL the packing to do so "See" you in a week!
