I have a thing for cupcakes.
I love them. In my opinion they are superior to cake in every way. There’s the variety of flavors and the cute little designs on top. I adore them.
So last year when planning Jack’s First Birthday I knew I wanted cupcakes. And I got these totally adorable Elmo and Cookie Monster cupcakes from our favorite bakery.
This year Jack is all about Mickey, so I knew I had to get Mickey cupcakes. I wanted them to be better than last years.
I was in over achieving mom mode. My son would have the best and most talked about cupcakes. I know it’s crazy but sometimes when your a mom you wonder down the crazy road. The one that tells you that your two year old cares what his cupcakes look like.
Since we moved I couldn’t use the bakery I used last year so I searched out the best Mickey cupcakes in town.
The lady at the bakery talked me into these beautiful sprinkle covered Mickey Mouse cupcakes. I was originally going to choose a different cupcake with red icing and a small Mickey face on top. But she warned me the red icing would stain the kids faces and that the black sprinkles were the way to go.
Yeah she was wrong, very, very wrong.
Not only did the cupcakes stain little faces, hands, and clothes.
They turned the kids poop bright play dough green.
Next year I’m going with a cake. Plain ol’ vanilla icing cake. Like the one I got for the family celebration on Sunday.
