For their fourth birthday, Justin and Matthew had a Backyardigans theme. They are really into that show right now so I decided to keep it simple and do Backyardigan's themed cupcakes, complete with green grass and whistles. I must have baked at least six dozen cupcakes (and my arm was sore enough to prove it) but they came out really cute!
Birthday number three was a transportation theme! I found an awesome train cake pan (on clearance) at Linen's N' Things since they were going out of business. I made at least thirty train cakes, complete with a Twizzler track going around the entire table!
In our favorite rocketship.....Rocket! For the boys second birthday I had this great idea that we were going to do The Little Einsteins theme and I was going to make a rocket cake. I practiced for months in advance. Did several test runs, practiced with frosting color to get it just right. I was pretty proud of the finished product. Technically, it's not a cupcake but it is too cute to not include.
In 2006, the two biggest joys of my life were born: my twin boys! I am a mom to five year old twin boys, who definitely keep life interesting and fun. I recently finished my master's degree in special education. I really love reading (and I'm actually a little obsessed with it), hence my blog. I enjoy reading YA, chick list and romance books! I'm also on goodreads.com.
