Happy Birthday to my little boy!

Thanksgiving this year has been replaced by a much more important holiday. At least for our family.

No more 5 year old helper here, I have a 6 year old now!

A 6 year old with lots of opinions about what he likes, dislikes and wants. And when it comes to food and dessert, he knows what he wants.

Last weekend he had a little party with some friends, where everyone got messy with fabric paint and then turned their faces and teeth blue enjoying these chocolate surprise cupcakes with blue vanilla marshmallow frosting. The surprise was a chocolate caramel cup inside, which unfortunately melted into the bottom of the cupcake but was still tasty.

I still have half the batch of blue marshmallow frosting in the fridge if you live in the area and need some icing.


Today is his actual birthday, however, so these sparkly blue treats were only practice for the real thing....


Not the greatest Lightening McQueen ever, but considering I could not get the enthusiasm to make him, he didn't turn out too badly.

And, yes, it's chocolate. I told you my little guy had opinions about what he wanted!

I'll get back to everyone later on the recipe for this cake. As for the cupcakes, go look at Baking From My Home to Yours. See the cover cake? It is that one, including the frosting, just shaped and colored a bit differently.
