Monsters Cupcakes

My son’s birthday was last week but with all of this things going on we were not able to make a party …so we did small picnic party today.
He has a special request for his birthday cake…MONSTERS!!! 🙂
So..last night I made some cupcakes with green and yellow icing and when I started to decorate them with gums, M. got so enthusiastic about it that most of decoration he did by himself. 🙂
And what a success they made on the party….you just can’t imagine 🙂


O aniversário do meu filho foi na semana passada mas, com tudo o que estava a acontecer, não tivemos hipótese de lhe fazer uma festa… então fizemos ontem uma pequena festa pic-nic.
Ele teve um pedido especial para o bolo de aniversário… MONSTROS!!! 🙂
Portanto… ontem à noite fiz alguns cupcakes com cobertura verde e amarela e, quando comecei a decorá-los com gomas, o M. ficou tão entusiasmado que acabou por fazer a maior parte da decoração 🙂
E que sucesso eles fizeram na festa… não podem imaginar 🙂
