We kicked off December, our busiest, most celebratory month, with 007’s birthday. To celebrate 007’s 8th birthday, we tried to incorporate all the things he loves: pizza, legos, muppets and Super Mario…
Since 007 requested chocolate cupcakes, I decided to use a regular boxed mix and jazz it up a bit. Instead of water, I used milk and instead of oil, I used butter. The cupcakes came out super light and fluffy.
I used the same homemade, marshmallow fondant recipe that we used here, colored a bit of the fondant yellow and left the rest of it white.
I cut out some little stars and
Cat cut out some tiny circles.
We iced them in a simple circle.
I drew little lines on the stars
using a food coloring pen.
Then, we simply placed the fondant on the cupcakes.
Simple and cute.
007 loved having them for his “one up” birthday. 😉
