Hello Cupcake!

What the H*%@!!! What have I been doing, that I totally forgot to post about sweet Kell's birthday. Uh. It. Was. February 24th. O.K. flog me with a noodle. Take away my sewing supplies. Make me watch Barney 100 times in a row. Anything to ease the guilt.

At least I had planned for her birthday properly. After all, this is my little girl. Only girlie things will do. And I'm pleased to announce she has kept her end of the bargain by being in love with ponies {for now}. All things horsie, pony, my little pony and or "honeypie" {from Strawberry Shortcake} related are number one in her book.

So I promptly scoured Amazon for the perfect cupcake book and this is what I found. It is worth it!!! You will be so glad you did. I can't tell you how amazing this book is and how impressed all your friends will be when you start whipping some of these out.

Anyhoo...they do have pony cupcakes in there. Now, I have to say that one of the items called for in the book is a white circus peanut. You know those ugly, weird I don't even want to know how they get them that color, orange peanut shaped hard marshmallow thingies. Those are used as the pony heads. Well I wasn't making orange ponies, I believe we're entering the age when nightmares could start. So just try and find a white one, I dare you. Oh, I found them somewhere as a "rainbow mix" Good golly, they come in a rainbow of colors.

So I started thinking...what else could I use? What, what, what???!!! It hit me...caramels!!! Sometimes I'm so clever, I scare myself. {Not really, but it would be nice if it were to happen once, just once}.

So this is what I made:

I think they turned out awesome!! The necks were chocolate sugar wafers and the tails were little pieces of pretzel {sawed off with a serrated knife...per the book}. Little pointy icing ears and long icing manes. Of course they were of the palomino variety as well. Can't wait for Dunn's birthday {5/21}. I'm thinkingof doing the shark cupcakes...just in time for summer ;)
