Zombiegirl’s Birthday Part One

Turning 10 is a big deal.

Birthday celebrations started on Wednesday night. I had to make cupcakes for Zombiegirl’s class. I went out and bought the book “Hello, Cupcake!” The one I asked for my birthday, because in my Internet travels I kept coming across creations made from that book. I showed it to ZG, thinking she would pick the dogs, or the horses. What did she pick? Aliens. Yes, she’s odd.

I think they came out kind of cute! “Hello, Cupcake!” uses other items such as donut holes, marshmallow and candy to create the cupcakes. Nuking the frosting makes it dippable and when it hardens, gives it a sheen. I love this guy,

We went to Dad’s Wednesday night, so I baked the cupcakes there. Forgot the donut holes, so Dad went and bought me Dunkin’ Donut munchkins. They were too big- the aliens kept falling over. So I waited until I got home to finish them. By 12:30a.m., I only had half done, and was getting punchy, so I went to bed and got up at 4:30a.m. to finish. It was totally worth it. She loved them and they got rave reviews in class.
Thursday night we took ZG, the older girls and Dad to Red Lobster. ZG is a total shrimp nut, and had grilled shrimp and a baked potato. MR and I split a bottle of wine, which between that, licking the frosting off everything that morning, and those damn cheesy biscuits the serve, I couldn’t finish my meal. We got home, had cake (that I also baked and decorated at 4:30 that morning) and opened presents. Her gift from us was a new captain’s bed, bedding and the promise to paint and redecorate her room. She’s going with blue. We talked her out of black.
