Tower of Cupcakes

3 Oct

We have been celebrating lots of birthdays lately! Yvette’s little one turned 2 last week (check out her party post here) and my little one turned two the week before that! You could say we’ve been more than busy these days.

For my son’s special day, I chose to make him cupcakes over the traditional birthday cake. My son loves to eat cupcakes and I thought this was an opportunity to break the cake mold. It’s also a plus to not have to cut the cake!

I baked chocolate cupcakes and chose to dye the vanilla frosting blue. After piping the frosting on the cupcakes, I sprinkled the tops with sharks, fish and turtles. I used a cupcake tower and added the two candles to the top cupcake. I thought the tower was a little bare.. so I used my Cricut and cut out my son’s name. I taped the letters carefully to toothpicks and viole!

We didn’t just serve cupcakes… we chose Italian! We had homemade spaghetti, italian bread, cucumber salad and lots of wine! The party was intimate and fun. The best part was watching my little boy blow out the candles! Happy Birthday Calvin!
