Well, It's official. We have a kid, not a baby, not a toddler, a full blown, four year old kid. It's certainly hard to believe that 4 years could pass so very quickly, but you know what they say about time ... they say all sorts of things about how it goes quickly and this and that.
Today was one of those crazy days that included working, three meetings, hanging streamers, wrapping presents, making horse cupcakes, throwing a birthday party ... you know a regular day in the life of a mom.
The horse cupcakes totally paid off though, right!?
I owe Hello Cupcake for the idea and tutorial. Here's a quick run down on what they entail:
Head: circus peanut candy, dipped in white chocolate and chilled
Neck: two chocolate wafers pasted together with chocolate frosting
Body: chocolate cupcake frosted with chocolate frosting
White frosting was used for the hair, chocolate frosting was used for the eyes and nose. Sprinkles and drizzled white chocolate added to the neck and body.
It was at the moment that Jude devoured the entire horse, head to cupcake, that I was truly satisfied with this endeavor.
She's a natural birthday girl.
Happy Birthday, Judith. You are the most incredible little girl. You made our lives, you absolutely made our lives.
