Happy Birthday, Ms. Reese!

So I finally finished those cupcakes on Wednesday night. Chocolate chip cupcakes with purple fluffy buttercream icing. My inspiration was an iris (purple and yellow), but I was told that these are her favorite flowers. I wish I could've made some out of gumpaste, or fondant, but I don't have any instruction books for that type of flower.

Despite that, I think that the colors turned out really nice. It's hard to tell in my picture, but the yellow sprinkles make the icing sparkle goldenly.

I delivered the cupcakes yesterday morning, and they were given to Ms. Reese later that afternoon for her surprise party. From the accounts that I heard, it was a really nice party and a happy birthday for Ms. Reese! I'm honored that I was asked to be included on this special day! :)
