Birthday cupcakes

I got a little behind in processing the photos on my memory card! These are the cupcakes Rolland got me for my b-day. There's red velvet and milk chocolate/vanilla for me. He got cinnamon sugar and coconut for his selections. These are from Sprinkles and while pricey, they are super tasty! Williams-Sonoma carries the mix now so you can make your own if there's not one near you.

I got a lot of soldering done tonight, just waiting on jump rings. I finished 3 charms entirely (I know, I know, I'm working on it). We also got a ton of bottle caps waiting on resin. Who knew it would go old? :) Also, Rolland started helping me out with jump rings on the bottle caps and cutting glass. We also had a soldering lesson tonight and he's pretty awesome! It's like he's been doing it forever, he's much better than I was on my first attempts. He has no idea what's in store for him if he keeps practicing!

I hope you guys had a great weekend. Have a great Monday!

I have to say that your cupcakes are far better than those from Sprinkles. I've had both and yours win hands down. Also, I find their patented "nipple sprinkle" to be slightly disturbing.

(Though admittedly that coconut one looks really good right about now.)

I just want to cry thinking about how pretty they are and how yummy they must have been!

your birthday cupcakes look amazing!!
and i'll tell you, just mentioning that you spent an evening soldering is {kind of} inspiring me to do the same!
have a great one, jan
