Saturday was my sister-in-law's birthday. We celebrated by eating dinner at the Irvine Spectrum. After dinner, we all headed over to SweetSpot Baker's Workshop for cupcakes. The kids all decided to make their own cupcakes and they had a blast. They definitely used enough candy to get their money's worth.
My niece Niki chose a white cupcake with purple buttercream frosting. She decorated it with sprinkles, red licorice, and Fruit Loops cereal.
My niece Alex used a white cupcake and chose pink as her frosting color. She decorated with sprinkles and blue frosting.
My nephew Dane had quite the time decorating. Actually, he didn't really care about the decorating, just licking the frosting off the cupcake. He used a red velvet cupcake and topped with blue frosting (as if you couldn't tell from his face what color his frosting was!). Dane topped his cupcake with red licorice, shamrock sprinkles, and gummy worms.
I opted out of making my own and instead bought a Marble Swirl Cupcake. The cupcake was made of white and chocolate cake and was topped with cream cheese frosting and a chocolate fudge swirl. The cupcake was pretty decent, but not too exciting.
