Confession: While we did get this idea from the Food Network, it has been greatly altered (aka 'simplified'). We saw it this week on the Neely's show... pink, piggy cupcakes.
Click here for the Neely's version. We simplified by using a cake mix and store bought pink icing--not a lot of spare time on our hands this week. We used Tootsie Rolls for the eyes and nostrils and decided on red velvet cake in honor of the Steel Magnolia's armadillo cake. (My second favorite movie in the universe, by the way.) The girls may have been a little freaked out by the blood red cake, but it just made for more fun.
Here are the ones the girls did all by themselves. Have you ever seen anything so scary, yet beautiful?
And here's E Dru biting into her bleeding little piggy. I've already scheduled a therapy session
This little baking project really was a lot of fun for me and the girls. If you're wondering about the Jebster... he slept through the entire process. (Thank God. That boy is a serious mess.)
Tomorrow we draw for the dvd. Check back!
