Oh, how I envy those moms that can decorate and craft and make gorgeous cakes! Sadly, I cannot perfect any of those arts. Let me show you what I mean . . .

Obviously, I can’t decorate cupcakes (though this was the first time I’d tried to pipe the icing on instead of spreading it with a knife)! I was so worried about what people would think that I made another batch:
(Toppers are from More Than a Cupcake.)
See what I’m talking about? I do wish I could be better at such things. But what I want more is to be comfortable enough with myself that I stop comparing myself to other moms all the time. ‘Cause in the end, my kids don’t care much about the presentation. They just want to have fun.
That was such a funny post. When I scrolled down and saw the picture of your cupcakes, I laughed aloud. I sympathize completely – I am fantastic though at ordering cakes at bakeries. I’ve mastered that skill.
LOL! Yeah, my cupcakes looked bad. But I’ve kept them in the fridge and my husband’s been eating them! At least they taste good. 🙂
Well, kudos for doing as much as you did! My son is only 17 months, so no big parties yet…he will be lucky if he doesn’t get a Chuck E. Cheese’s party!
Love the microphone cupcakes! I should try making them sometime!
It was fun!
you are awesome. What matters is your kids saw you putting all this effort into THEM having a good time!
As a veteran of many homemade birthday parties at our house with our two children, now grown and almost grown, trust me, these are the parties that they will remember the most.
