A field of cupcakes

I hope you all had a good day yesterday. Did you over eat? Make a mess? Wish you hadn't eaten as much chocolate? Well I did all the above. So much for dieting.
I made the usual feast, ham, potatoes and green beans. But the fun started at desert. Sunflower cup cakes.

Sorry for the blurry pic. I think I was suffering for sugar over load and couldn't hold the camera still. I also made little egg shaped cakes. I found this muffin pan shaped like eggs and bought 2. So this Easter I made the cakes, frosted 2 ends and stuck them together. It wasn't till I tried to frost them that I ran into trouble. How do you frost something round? I had frosting all over my hands, The cakes were all lumpy from frosting or naked were my fingers touched. I even frosted one side then laid them down on coconut grass to frost the other side. (If you have any ideas, let me know for next year) So needless to say, they were ugly things and I did not photograph them (don't want them going down in history with my name attached).

Have a wonderful Monday.

Take care, Brandie

These sunflowers look yummy! How about half an egg on top of a cupcake sticking out of a 'nest' of made of coconut grass?
