What does one do with a bare naked cupcake?

Ok I know it's been forever since I posted in here but I had to go back to work. I'm on mat leave again and it's #1's 2nd birthday this weekend so of course it's cupcake making time again.

I figured I would try frosting them with a spatula this time so I found this video on you tube of one of the people at Magnolia's Bakery and decided that maybe I don't have the skills to pull that off just yet.

Then I found this other video on filling cupcakes with sweet sweet innards. So easy, I can do that!

and then I found this video on making skully cupcake toppers, something to keep in mind for next month perhaps (so cute)

Anyhoo, I'm off to finish off these cupcakes. I'll post an update post party.

Her birthday came and went and I went with a classic double chocolate with m&m's on top. You can't really go wrong with that...nobody was really around to help me eat most of them though and I ate WAY more of them then I should have (uuuugh, my tummy!). I should really start baking half batches when I know I don't have people closeby to give some to. LOL, who am I kidding??
