The bonus was that sunflowers are crazy gorgeous and I got to decorate my house with them:
And then, there were these little goodies that grew in my refrigerator (right next to the Mike's if you notice)
Oh, for cute's sake, these were adorable! As I mentioned before, totally worth the time it took to make them. And, really so easy. With a few lessons in piping from my talented sister-in-law and a little trial and error, these weren't too hard to make. It's just an oreo cookie and some canned frosting on top of a cupcake from a mix! so cute-here' a close-up:
And, strangely, the light in the refrigerator is good for taking pictures-I will have to remember that. I wanted to take more shots of these because they are so crazy cute, but I decorated them at night and then we were short on time yesterday before the party. I really didn't want to greet my guests by saying, hold on-just one more close up of this really cute cupcake!
