Well, I suppose the skirt did kind of give it away, and yes, it’s a Cars party, Lightning McQueen and all. I am having way too much fun planning this party and I’ll share my fun ideas in a bit.
For today, though, we had a special-little-actual-birthday birthday party. And there was plenty of pink. Because even though my little Gracie wants a Cars party, when I turned her loose with my Hello, Cupcake! book, she picked out the princess cupcakes for her day-of birthday treat. These particular cupcakes threw me for a loop as I used some homemade fondant rather than smooshing and rolling out a bazillion gumdrops for the dresses. The fondant wasn’t looking so hot with the pink sugar crystals, and my backup fruit rollup idea didn’t work either. And I really thought I was defeated this time. But then I gave it one last go with the fondant and omitted the sugar crystals and you know what? It totally worked.
