I started with a classy little pink cupcake, decorated in pink butter cream, and topped with sprinkles. I thought that would be perfect, but the more I looked at them, the more I realized that something was missing.
I guess what I am trying to say is that I'm a perfectionist! I like things to look PERFECT. What I wanted more than anything else is for the little girl to have a HUGE smile on her face when she saw the cuppies.
Honestly, I had NO IDEA what they would look like. My friend Michelle and I actually went to Starbucks and went though some cupcake books looking for ideas. We didn't find any, but I did come up with my idea. So, marshmallow fondant later (I'll post the recipe one day), I hand cut out and painted 24 My Little Pony figures. I ended up tracing the figure then drawing in the rest. This was another excellent example of why I like cookie writers. The best part is that they tasted delicious, and looked super cute. Here's the first 12 that I completed:
It was a wonderful party. Thank you Cathy for the inspiration, and thank you Michelle for the ideas!
