I made cupcakes the other day for my dd's preschool party and they were the ugliest things I'd ever seen. I decided to take them anyway because my class(I work there too) is the only group of two year olds that know what an ugly cake looks like.
Low and behold they were a hit! Mine wre the only cupcakes that got pictures taken and the only ones that got eaten. They where wasc w/orange cream butter pecan buttercream. They were good (just ugly). If I can get my skills up to par then I may just become a baker/decorator/teacher/event planner/pastery chef/coolest mom ever (the last title came from my 8 yo son while his mouth was full of cake so I don't know if he said "coolest mom" or "foolish mom"). ROFL
hehe- yes- pretty can be worked on! bet they were yummy! glad they were a hit!
