I decided to make Watermelon looking cupcakes to work today for Brandy's early birthday celebration.
The watermelon of course being a Saskatchewan (kind of inside joke) thing.
The cake was made and then part of a bottle of food color gel to get the batter to look red/pink like a watermelon, a handful of mini chocolate chips in the batter to resemble seeds.
All was good until 0130 this morning when I discovered that I somehow had not replenished the Buttercream icing in the fridge downstairs!!! Okay, no panic make more, only I seem to only have about 2 lbs of icing sugar in the cupboard (off to bulk barn after work tomorrow). Hmmmmm, so I made the best simple green icing that I could, and we'll hope for the best.
Happy Birthday Brandy.
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
p.s. this was also an excuse to use my new cupcake platter (hehehehehehe).
