If You Give Kat a Cupcake...

I thought it would be cute to do a Cupcake Party for Kat's Second Birthday.

I'm a HUGE fan of cupcakes at parties, because I'm so incredibly lazy they're fun and easy!

Plus...since we call her Kat...I was able to play with the whole "If you give a cat a cupcake" thing. However, our version morphed from the cute children's book into a pink and purple explosion!

Oh well!

Here's a shot of her "cake":

The cupcakes are just a white cake mix. For the number of Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents & Cousins that were coming, I made three mixes. I left one white and colored one purple and one pink. Then I dobbed all three colors into each liner. Sort of like I did for the Rainbow Cupcakes we made for St. Patrick's Day. The frosting is a homemade cream cheese frosting that I colored pink and purple. Then we had to put sprinkles on top!

Did you notice the "2" hanging above the table?

It was super fun and easy to make! I got the inspiration HERE! via Pinterest.

And what do you use??? Cupcake Liners!

I started with this:

Left-over liners and an empty cake box! I flattened out the box.

Then I pulled out my Mad Middle School Skillz and drew a puffy two.

Hmmm...can you tell it's been awhile since Middle School?!? Okay. Now cut it out. The two that is...but you can also cut out thinking about how old I am! :)

Next I folded each liner in half and then in half again.

I folded the pointy ends a bit to make it easier to glue them to the cardboard. Then I smeared some hot glue on my cardboard a little at a time and glued the liners down. It took about five minutes to fill it up.

Super Cute!!! Then I glued a bit of ribbon onto the back to hang it from. It looked great behind the cake table and it's now hanging on the CuppyCake Princess' bedroom door!
