Victoria helped me bake chocolate cupcakes, some with chocolate chips, some with mint chips - yum!
The plan was to make shark cupcakes, from Hello, Cupcake! for Ricky.

I had asked Victoria's dad before what her favorite animal was - sea turtles! So i had a "brilliant" idea for how to make turtle cupcakes! (Madeline cookies and gumdrops somehow = turtle in my mind)
Well, I'm just going to say that the ideas in Hello, Cupcake! are good, they're cute, they're downright awesome - and they *look* easy.
I should have practiced, or at least played with these before hoping to have kids replicate the fantastic pictures.
While I was stressed out about how it just wasn't working, Tori reminded me why kids rock - she had a great time! (We all did, how can you not have fun when there's sugar EVERYWHERE?)
BTW, that blue blobcake in the lower right? That's a shark. Yup.
