Honesty is the Best Policy

Upon my triumphant return to the blogosphere, I have decided to put myself out there warts and all. So, when I tell you about M's bday party, I'm not going to just show you the picture of perfectly cute cupcakes and talk about what a fantastic time everyone had.

I'm going to go a little deeper and tell you what a pain in my butt these cupcakes were to make. Hopefully my lessons will help you along the way should you ever decide to make similar cupcakes.
The first thing you should know, if you are making ice cream cone cupcakes, never overfill the cones with cake batter. They will explode. I guaruntee it.
And then, once your realize you have 9 kids coming to you home expecting cupakes, don't try to just trim off the exploded cake parts then go ahead and dip them in the frosting. Unless you want cake/frosting casserole. Lastly, marshmallows make terrible clouds when the rainbows are a very flexible candy that will be sadly listing by the time you eat them.

Then, once you come to terms with the fact that you are not Martha Stewart and that kids will gladly eat cake/frosting casserole any day and will just eat the rainbow candy off the tops before anyone even realizes your cupcakes aren't can have fun at the dance party!

All in all it was a great party, we blasted some Justin Bieber and danced the night away :)
A great party for a great 6 year old!
