Power Rangers

The boys 5th birthday is tomorrow. I spent the last two days making and frosting 50 cupcakes. Here is a little preview of what the cake will look like. I made all the power rangers using my cricut and the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. That took forever. Then I made two batches of cupcakes last night. This morning we got everything out to start frosting. We wanted to have red icing. But the icing turned out pink. And the more food coloring I added the pinker the frosting got. The boys felt bad and kept telling me it was okay. But I said 5 year old boys cannot have pink frosting on their Power Ranger cupcakes. So we jetted off to the market and got vanilla and chocolate frosting.
Since we had such trouble with the frosting I decided to do a trial run of the cupcake cake. I think it turned out fantastic. I just have to add candles when we do the real thing tomorrow.
