Cupcakes for the Birthday Girl!!!! 

This recipe may be tough for some but follow closely and you will be just fine!  This may look  just like December’s posting but wait….


  • Purchase the boxed cake mix of your choice
  • Follow instructions on the package for cupcakes

Time To Frost The Cupcakes:

    So cute! I’ve always wanted to project an image onto a wall and make a mosaic…I guess I could start this way, with cupcakes!

    Great job! …Happy Birthday, Baby Girl! xo
