Yes those are pencils that my son is holding! He has this thing, where he thinks it's cool to break pencils with his thumb, so his friends got him pencils for his birthday! Priceless. I'm still in shock at the fact that I'm the mother of a 14 yr. old. When did that happen? They really grow up way too fast! He's such an awesome young man though. He is constantly thriving to get good grades in school. I really think it's because he likes to be the smartest person in the room. Seriously, at dinner time, we get our fill of facts about science, history and world studies. He's hilarious, I call him my mini Sheldon.
Those cupcakes I made were the easiest by far! If you want to see the technique I used, I posted it in my instagram HERE. It was really easy. All you have to do is pour sprinkles into a bowl and dip your iced cupcake into the sprinkles. The sprinkles don't get wasted that way either! The cake is also homemade. I tried a fork technique for the detail on the frosting, but it came out a little messier than I planned. That didn't really matter because it was still delicious! That cake was gone in 5 minutes!
Anyway, I know it's been about a week since I blogged last, but I was really sick and I'm still getting over whatever I had. This weekend there's another birthday too! My wife turns 30! yay! We're going to be going out to Philly for some fun.....I can't wait!
