Project 365, Day 208 (7/26/09) Of course they look like the book!

Jess is still visiting today, and we decided to endeavor on a journey through the "HELLO CUPCAKE" book that I received from her earlier this year. (Remember my Cupcake-odile?)

After scouring over the book for the better part of a morning, we split up to find the goods to make this happen. We ended up choosing these sunflower cupcakes:

and these adorable owls.

But the piece De' resistance were our sharks.

Oh yes. Three-dimensional and all. The body is a cut-up twinkie that was dipped in melted grey frosting. As in, we had to stick the twinkie on the cupcake and dip the whole thing, UPSIDE-DOWN, in melted frosting. Try it. THEN you can laugh at us. :)

Some did not fare too well during this process,

but all-in-all, I think we came pretty close to what they did in the book, don't you?

Okay... okay.... you can quit laughing now! At least we tried! :)

"It's like I always say...let somebody ELSE try to make this stuff out of cake, and THEN they can point out what I did wrong." ~ Me, to Jess, as we pondered over our shark-like creations
