Celebration Cupcakes (Rockstar Style)

She waited for weeks and finally the cookbook that my daughter had been longing to check out from her school's library was on the shelf, just in time for her birthday cupcakes. 

Together we made karaoke cupcakes fit for a rock star, tweaking the recipe and baking the cupcakes into an ice cream cone, frosting them with pink icing, and decorating each "microphone" with silver sprinkles.  Sugar overload, to be certain, but undeniably cute. 

Singing while eating is entirely optional. 

Capturing the cute husband goofing off in the background on camera is entirely bonus.  Icing on the (cup)cake, you could say. 

Cupcake recipe: What's New, Cupcake?

    Daddies that are willing to 'get down' while their daughters sing into cupcake microphones when there's a camera around are keepers in my book. He rocks (literally and figuratively).

    I found the cutest website with magnet necklaces for mom and
    daughter.  I just bought a set for
    daughter Becky and me to wear on mom’s day! That will be fun. They have these
    red hearts with plastic ladybugs glued on them. They are held to the necklace
    with magnets. Loved the designs. Well, happy mother’s day to all the moms.   www.britebuttonz.com

    Greetings from St. Louis! I’m wondering if you would consider submitting a version of your story to an anthology that's under development? If any of your followers have stories, I'd love to read them, too. I’m actively seeking story submissions for two books on motherhood for Publishing Syndicate (Not Your Mother’s Book…On Being a Mom and Not Your Mother’s Book...On Moms-to-Be). I especially need some good stories for Moms-to-Be. These are NOT Chicken Soup -- they are stories for a new century. Adoption stories also welcome. Contributors whose work is accepted earn royalties. And you get a byline and bio -- great way to continue promoting your blog! Thank you!

    Thank you!
