Last year for the girls’ half birthday celebrations at school, we made Milkshake Cupcakes from Bakerella. They were a hit. Kelly wanted “plain” this year, if you recall, but Sara wants this cupcake to become her 1/2 birthday tradition. I used cherry sours this year instead of red gumballs, which I loved, because they look like actual cherries. PLUS, there is the bonus that I didn’t just give a roomful of 1st graders chewing gum. I’m sure that made me popular with the teachers last year. I also nixed the chocolate, and went with Funfetti cake mix. And look at the sprinkles! This cupcake is just a beacon to food dyes. It follows our rule: if we don’t eat it every day, it’s perfectly dandy to enjoy it on special occasions.
Sara turned 6 and a half last week in high Milkshake Cupcake style, wearing silver shoes and lots of what-nots in her hair. With Sara, MORE is more. I knew I liked something about that little squirt.
