  13. Girlfriend, those look smashing! And yes, I often use butter (but not for the school when we made 600 cupcakes… that would have killed our budget) and really, one of those little margarine squares melts up so handy… but yes, butter is the way to go! Mmmmm! Yours look delish!

    Well done to you and Sunshine both!

  23. Those look oh so de-licious 😉 Hmmm, maybe I'll try that for our Halloween themed Birthday party coming up. I use an ice cream scoop too for cupcakes…works like a charm! Thanks for the great recipe and decor idea, yay!
