Cupcakes for Sky

Sky, a friend at work, wanted me to make some cupcakes for her friends daughter’s birthday.  I think she’s 3?  She wanted ladybugs or butterflies, but something cute and girly.  I looked through a book (Hello, Cupcake) Mom bought me a while back that  had some cute cupcake ideas.  I came up with the sunflowers with ladybugs, and the candy melt butterflies in pastels.

The sunflowers turned out really cute!

The centers of the sunflowers are oreos, and the lady bugs are M&M’s.

The butterflies I made a couple days early.  When I went to put them on the cupcakes last night, it was too warm!  It was a big melty mess!  I popped them in the freezer overnight, and they look pretty good this morning.  But note to self: don’t try to work with chocolate/candy melts when it’s sooooo hot!  Never again!

I hope they last until Sky can get them to the party!  With this hot weather, I’m a little worried!  At least they will taste good no matter what!  But I hope they stay cute long enough to be enjoyed!
