"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing..." -Helen Keller
 
For Austin's birthday this year, I decided to go the cupcake route. We had just received cupcake tins with paper cups so it was easy. Of course, decorating them, making icing, etc. is sometimes more tricky. Here are some cook-out themed cupcakes I made for Austin. The chocolate cakes sunk in terribly (I haven't found a healthy from-scratch recipe I really like yet), so I opted to use some sugar-free chocolate pudding to heap on top as a healthy icing option. Then I sprinkled red and orange sugar crystals on top as embers, and decorated the cupcakes with kabobs, "hotdogs", and "steaks". They weren't gorgeous, but fortunately Austin is easily pleased and not that interested in aesthetics when there's chocolate cake to be eaten.

We also went out to dinner with one of our friends for Austin's birthday, so I made these Oreo-icing cupcakes:
