Okay, seriously…. I know these aren’t perfect, but aren’t they cute? Even in all their sloppiness? Part of the problem was the heat — It’s a balmy 94 degrees in the Pacific Northwest this week. Our house has one little tiny air conditioner, and no matter how hard it worked, the frosting was just sliding off the cake. GRRRRRR…
So I hurried and covered 36 mini cupcakes in buttercream, white sugar, and strategically placed chocolate chips. When it came down to putting the chocolate jimmies, I got so frustrated I almost threw the whole pan away. So that’s why some of them only have one little-tiny-supposed-to-be-a-mouth.
While it’s not entirely a fail, I’m not super pleased with the results. Buuuut…they are for a friends party tomorrow and this girl is NOT going to redo them!!

Wish me luck on the rest of the cupcakes: one dozon double chocolate, and four dozen vanilla with some kind of frosting that I haven’t figured out yet. 🙂
