Sesame Street cupcakes
So it was a no-brainer to make Sesame Street cupcakes when we were going to have some of his young cousins over for a visit.
I am not going to lie. I was worried about how they'd turn out because I was using cream cheese frosting that I'd made once before on Hummingbird Cupcakes. and I wasn't sure the food colouring would absorb properly.
We all know what happens when I panic and add too much food colouring to cupcake frosting.
I frosted these a few hours in advance with a large piping tip, topped them with these Sesame Street-themed rings I bought on eBay and put them in the fridge. And you know what? They turned out just fine. And I got more than a few giggles from my baby boy and lots and lots of "Heeeeeys" -- which, in his world, means these cupcakes get five stars out of five.
