Cupcake Cake Take TWO!

Do you remember, back in February, when I attempted to bake a cupcake cake?  It was for TEN's birthday.  I was hell bent on making this cake for him.  I attempted it twice.  Both times were complete failures.  Feel free to read about my humiliation HERE.  If you choose to skip that painful memory, you can have a peek at this picture to see how terrible it all was:

Everyone was very nice about it, of course.  And yet, I knew that inside they were all thinking "poor, poor T.  she cannot cook a thing."

Flash forward to yesterday.  I was answering the 8 questions about food tag, and I told you about my EPIC FAIL cooking pork fried rice.  MK said to me "I cannot believe you did not tell the story of the cupcake cake".  And I pouted.  And it hurt my feelings.  And at that moment I made a decision.  I WAS GOING TO GO HOME AND SUCCESSFULLY BAKE A CUPCAKE CAKE THAT NIGHT!  And I did.  And do you know what happened?  Here, let me show you:

(i am in a fight with blogger.  i am also sideways.  whatever)

While the cakes cooled...Louis had play time!

(into the freezer for 10 minutes prior to icing. )


(more waiting.....)

(aha!  it did make it easier :)

(using food coloring to make a green bottom half)

(sideways..almost finished cupcake)

("let me see!  let me see!  i want a taste!")


Betty Crocker in the Hooooouuuuuse!
