My kids choose great friends. Smart. Interesting. Sweet. And so it wasn't a surprise, but it was a delight when we learned that Ainsley's little friend, who loves dinosaurs, had decided to have a paleontology party at the Arizona Museum of Natural History. Right up this English and Anthro major's alley! So of course I asked if I could make cupcakes.
Super simple gumpaste bones nestled in brown sugar dirt, with a few gumpaste brushes to help our junior paleontologists excavate the cake.
My favorites were the Triceratops skulls. I love getting to make cakes or cupcakes on a regular basis for my friends, and I'm awfully lucky that they come up with such great themes for me to play with!
