I Love You This Much

Cookie Monster- A Photo Journal

I fancy myself a somewhat crafty person.  That is until I tackle projects like the one below.  I have creative ideas, I just struggle on the execution portion of these projects.  I am working on a kick ass video for P's upcoming birthday, so stay tuned.

I saw a picture of a Cookie Monster cupcake and got inspired to make them for P to take to school on his upcoming third (how is it possible) birthday. 

I asked his teacher how many students would be at school on cupcake day.

What would you guess- 15?


Hows about 29! 

That is nearly a box and half of cake mix.  Yes I said box, what did you think I was going to these cupcakes from scratch?
Stage 1

Stage 2
Blue fingers, blue icing, blue food coloring splatters on the WHITE kitchen table.  Who needs a drop cloth?  

Question: What happens when a very pregnant lady is home alone with about 2 (very full) tablespoons of blue icing left over after icing an insane amount of cupcakes around lunch time?

Answer: Lunch is served?

Stage- whatever.  Three is it? Maybe four.  Either way the eye's have it!

Here is what I was aiming for-

Here is what P ended up with-

Happy (early) Birthday Pman!  Check back on Friday for the bday video.

Those little cookie monsters will love those cookie monsters! They look great. Those kids will all go home and tell everyone they had cookie monster cupcakes. It's an easy audience.
