1 Up Mushroom Cupcakes for school....

And they are finished.

I used a new recipe for buttercream icing for these cupcakes in preparation for making Caleb's cake tomorrow. Um, it's ok.

Really, it crusts, it tastes good, the texture is ok, but there is just something about it that I just don't like. I mean, it is fine for these cupcakes, but it definitely won't work for Caleb's cake. Tomorrow, I will have to figure something else out.

So anyway, Caleb wanted red and green Super Mario mushrooms, so that is what he got. I was informed that technically, the red ones are Power-Up Mushrooms and the green ones are 1-Upp Mushrooms. Here is what they look like....

He was picky enough to say that the girls in his class should get red and the boys should get green. Um...ok?!


  1. Happy Birthday to Caleb...I think that the cupcakes are adorable...My son was a Super Mario fan also..these really are the innocent and fun times..enjoy...I am sure that they taste great...the kids will love them! Blessings, Catherine xo
