My friend Amy and I made cupcakes this weekend for her friend’s birthday. The ‘theme’ was pirates, which inspired two kinds of cupcakes: pirates and treasure. The pirates were decorated with buttercream frosting, bandanas, eyepatches, and chocolate sprinkle beards. The treasure cupcakes were chocolate cake with a reeses or rolo baked inside, fudge frosting, and gold flakes on top.
His 40th birthday party was held at the WineCabin on Snowmass mountain, meaning that everything needed to be brought up at 7:30am on a snowmobile…..the finished cupcakes looked like a shipwreck upon their arrived, but they did the trick: turned everyone’s teeth black!
