Kimberlin's Texas Luau
This was for my sweet niece, Kimberlin's 10th birthday. I've never gotten the chance to bake for her because she lives in Missouri. This year, she celebrated in Texas - which explains the chocolate Texas toppers on the cupcakes. Her inspiration was the Tropical Cake from gellyscakes, although my final bears little resemblance. Anyway, it was a labor of love and my first time to try the viva paper towel buttercream method. Worked as well as buttercream could in mid-July Texas heat. Thanks for looking!
