Black Frosting? Ewww....

My little one recently celebrated her 2nd birthday! She is growing so fast-too fast! She had no problems tearing into her yummy gooey cupcakes. She did'nt even care that I had painstakingly decided on a princess pink icing with beautiful black music notes and guitars, wishing her a "Happy Birthday to our Rockin' baby girl. She is a music lover- it's in her blood. With Daddy being an amazing bass player and Mommy singing lead vocals in a band, big black music notes lovingly placed in the pink icing were a given. Do you have any idea what happens when you eat black icing? Yep, you guessed it, green poo. In fact, everyone that had eaten a beautiful cupcake had green poo issues. Yes, pretty disgusting, but pretty funny. The moral of this story? No matter how yummy, no matter how enticing, don't eat the black icing! You have been forewarned!
For cupcakes that will not turn anything green, check out some of the goodies that I have recently added to my etsy shop at .

All month long I am featuring some of my favorite cupcakes from amazing etsy crafters. They are also fellow Cafemoms. If you are in search of beautiful handmade goods lovingly made by some amazing women, use the "Cafemom" search tag to browse pages of beautiful goodies!
