So here it is, my first try at making cupcakes for a party! Liam just turned three and we had a big party at Travel Town Museum. I made a mix of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, both regular and mini. I also had a special delivery of Smarties, this Canadian treat (similar to the M&M's) the children went crazy for. It was a very warm day for February, close to 90 degrees, and the swiss meringue buttercream survived over two hours outside! Got lots of "hooo" and "haaa" from this display, I guess this is a good start!
