Hello Cupcake blog, as a special creation for their first newsletter. I loved them & printed all the details out immediately for future use. Well, that was months ago, I can't find the print out & they don't have the instructions online anymore! Frustrating, but I can do this! Well, I did it, but they are not quite as spectacular as I planned them to be. It was definitely a learning experience!
First, I am going to have to assume that they used smaller, party martini glasses, not real ones. I think this is true because each of my martinis has two cupcakes in it, and it took two whole cans of frosting to fill up just three glasses! I know lots of people like icing, but that is extreme!
These were so much fun to do, when I was doing it right! Okay, that's going to be it for the week. I'm planning on making something special next week for Drew to take to school for their last couple of days. We'll see!

here on her blog almost 6 months ago!
We ended up making 9 hamburgers. 2 went to the neighbors, 1 with me to work today & the rest with Drew to school. What am I going to do with all our left over goodies during the summer?!
I got a little carried away with my ingredients, but I wanted to make sure you could see them when the top bun was on!
Table for two?
Okay, so as a disclaimer if you actually tried one of these this go around, Drew & I are pretty sure it wasn't a great flavor combination. Chocolate brownie, strawberry cupcakes, green homemade icing, with red & orange store bought icing. I was just trying to use what I had & not run to Kroger!! Sorry!
I have 6 more strawberry cupcakes sitting at my house waiting on me for tonight. Going to do something with margarita glasses! Get excited, pictures hopefully tomorrow!
50 is a lot of cupcakes! I tried to get them all in one shot, but that wasn't going to happen! So, here's 12 good ones :)
Last shot I promise! I'm still working on my picture taking skills for blog posting, & am steadily improving! My husband isn't always exactly happy with where I set up my little set, but I'm the one who cleans up, so he just has to deal!! :)
Congratulations to Amanda & Chris!! Can't wait to meet Archie!

I got the idea for this tie onesie from all over blogland, I can't find the specific post! Drew had me looking for argyle fabric, specifically for daddy Roy. He wears it alot! Drew hand drew the tie for me & I just copied & cut it out! Super easy & way cute!
I LOVE this wipes case! As you can see, I used the same fabrics throughout the onesies & wipes case so that everything would match for Nate! I got the idea for the Wipes Case from my friend Jennifer at Paisley Pink Polka Dots.
Drew was my guinea pig onesie decorator. Anyone who knows us, knows that Drew is really the more creative & artistic one of us! Also not surprising, he decided to do a Dallas Cowboys onesie for baby Nate. The awesome part of this is that my Grandmother Kelly, who will be Nate's Great Kelly, is also a HUGE Dallas Cowboy fan. So this onesie by Drew came with instructions, "to be worn when you visit Great Kelly".
Here's the artist with his work. Like the way he's trying to be all serious? Yea right!! I think he did a great job for his first time with fabric paint!
Word from the shower is that Drew's onesie was in the running for best design!
Also, my mother keeps promising she is going to send me the pictures from the shower showcasing some of the amazing custom onesies, but I am tired of waiting on them. I'll post them when I get them!

I had just purchased the Cricut Cupcake Wrappers cartridge and was itching to use it. I told her that we were going to make wrappers that were onesies, to dress the cupcakes up. Lucky for her, I hadn't tried it out before I suggested it, because it took WAY longer than expected to cut out 48 cupcake wrapper onesies!!
Anyway, they turned out adorable!! And the best part was, because Bobbi felt the need to be around something sweet (yes, me & the cupcakes), she even came over to help decorate!! We had lots of fun decorating & eating the extras, until Drew told us our mouths were blue. O well!!
And meet my cousin Bobbi! Love you!!
