Some birds just won't settle for sticks and hair and dirt to make a nest. They need shredded coconut, lovingly hand-dyed and placed on a cookie. Of course these most special of all birds only lay candy eggs, my favorite!
When times get tough, the tough get fancy. Or something like that. Seriously though, a handle on a cupcake is pretty seriously fancy. I don't think I could maintain that level of fancy for long. I'd end up with a frosting mustache or something.
Our fair submitter said she made these sweet treats for her daughter's "Night Owl" party. Amazing! I remember being in 6th grade and having slumber parties where we stayed up all night jacked up on sugar playing truth or dare and talking about boys until the sun came up. What happened to those days? I need to have a slumber party. Maybe this awesome mom will make me an owl cake too!
I wish cupcakes stayed fresh longer so I could make a box like this last about two weeks and eat just a half a cupcake per day. As it is, I have to eat two at a time or they'll go stale. I think I'll start with the carrot and then lavender. Oh the choices!!!
