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!
