Hello Cupcake!

My lovely friend Kelly Booth sent me this amazing book 'Hello Cupcake' as a wedding present, so today, my sister, Emily and I had an "attempt" at making the Panda cupcakes.

Here is how they SHOULD look:

Look at those claws... and those amazing eyes!!
And here are ours.

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!
Not bad for a first attempt we think!


We laughed a LOT!!!
Thank you Kelly - this book is amazing.
And I am sure I will get better and better!!! (I hope so anyway!)

I'd never heard of panda cupcakes and so I HAD to check this out.... amazing that anyone thought of this... much less accomplished the feat. Honestly I don't know how you did it. They do look good enough to eat... I'm going to prowl my kitchen now.. not in an attempt to make panda cupcakes, but for lunch. :)) Looks like you had lots of fun!
