Buttercream Transfers

Oh my goodness, we just moved!  Our kitchen is now in Westchester, although still in many many boxes. I've gotten pretty behind on my posts and until Io find my Kitchenaide again things will be a bit sporadic. But before I got everything boxed up, I managed to eek out a cake for my daughter's birthday (since birthdays care nothing for whether you are moving or not). She was very specific in her request, she wanted a unicorn with a rainbow – no make that an alicorn, but d...

"Pink lady" vanilla mini-cupcakes

​ I'm new to having a kid in school. My eldest daughter is in Kindergarten this year and we are getting used to the frequent requests for volunteers or chaperones or whatever. So I should have seen this coming - it's a classic after all. My daughter came home and told me there was going to be a bake sale on Friday and she wanted to have money that day so she could buy something. Sure, that seemed fine.
