A surprise birthday party.
A virtual surprise birthday party.
For one of my very favorite bloggers ever.
I bet when you got up this morning, you didn’t know that you would be attending a birthday party, did you?
So it’s not just a surprise for the birthday girl, but it’s a surprise for you, too!
These pretty, pink, sparkly, happy cupcakes are in honor of my sweet blogging friend Kristan!
And she isn’t just the Cookbook Queen.
She’s also the queen of all things pink (26 pages of results after searching for “pink”…that’s definitely royalty!).
So naturally, her birthday cupcakes should be pink.
I think not.
I created the flags myself, inspired by Kristan, and after glueing them onto wooden skewers, I topped each one of with a tiny, pink gem.
I’m pretty sure that’s the only way to top off a glitter queen’s cupcake.
And the Cookbook Queen would naturally have pink cupcakes, but I knew that one shade of pink wasn’t enough for Kristan. Two shades of gorgeous pink batter needed to be swirled together for these glitzy cupcakes.
It was the only option.
I hope they make today’s birthday girl just as happy as they made me.
Happiest of birthdays, Kristan! I hope you get lots of pretty things and everyone spoils you as you deserve!
xo and much love,
Oh yeah, and you can’t leave a birthday party without a favor, so if you have a birthday queen in your life, then you’re in luck, because you can print out these fun, festive flags and make your own cupcake toppers. Enjoy!
