dora and boots
I had a very busy weekend! And, I have myself to blame making these cupcakes for Oliver's birthday Saturday. I knew these would be time consuming, naturally. A trip to the store on Thursday, building the faces on Friday; then on Saturday morning, baking, adding the icing details and constructing them. I have to thank the hubster who made frosting for me while I was painting on their eyes and grins, because you need to "glue" these guys to the top of the cupcake. These were ready just in time for the party to start! I, however, hadn't showered or glued on my own face yet, so we were fashionably late to a three year old's party. But they were still in burger/brat mode when we arrived, so we were early as far as dessert is concerned.
I'm happy to say they were a big hit! With the bigger "kids," anyway. Ollie's dad said that he wouldn't eat Dora's face and probably would've appreciated these more if he were six. Well, God only knows what I'll be doing when Ollie turns six so I can't make any promises. They'll just have to pull out photos and say "Look! You must've been a good boy that year. What went wrong?" heh, heh.
Later that evening we grilled out with two other couples and I took along the extras. They were a hit there too. Especially considering Dora and Boots resemble one couple. L even calls K "monkey!" I believe it has something to do with his amount of back hair but happily, I cannot confirm. Such ridiculousness...
I'll share images of our bonfire from that night in the next post.
Happy monkey Monday, all!
