I am doing some blog catch up here and I wanted to share Georgia's pink pig cupcakes with everyone. I would love to take credit for the idea, but it isn't mine. I am famous for tearing out pages of magazines when I see something neat. A few years ago, when G was just an infant, I ran across the most fabulous cupcake animal designs and I held on to it, thinking for usre that I would use it someday. And, finally, I was able to. I showed the pictures to G and asked her what she wanted. I thought she would choose the frog, due to her fondness for her favorite stuffed animal, froggy. But, she is in the "PINK PHASE". So, the pig it was!
We had to improvise a little bit. The original pig used pink jimmies. But, I wasn't able to find any, so I used food coloring to dye coconut and this is what we got!
The ears are red licorice lace tucked into the cupcake. The eyes are raisins, the nose is a marshmallow (very carefully cut in half) with icing nostrils.
They aren't exactly Martha-worthy, but she loved them and that is what matters most!
