Cupcake Decorating Party

A friend asked me to make some cupcakes for her daughter's 10th birthday. It then turned into a decorating party (eek!). So I made three 'samples' and brought them along, with all my tools (thanks to Cake Decorating Magazine, especially the grass nozzle - furry!), with the following checklist:

Vanilla Cupcakes (recipe by Annie Bell)
Cupcake stand
Buttercream icing
Piping bags and nozzles
Icing colours
Moulds, cutters, and tools
Cupcake pods (to take them home)
Sprinkles and cookies to decorate

Cookie Monster

Princess Crown

Popstar
The kids then decorated their own cupcakes, mostly cookie monsters, I have to say. It all went reasonably well, considering... and now for some wine...

From this...
