Cupcake Wars {Camping Theme} play date

Right after Vanessa moved back from Costa Rica, we were sitting on the bedroom floor of Abby's room looking at a creative cupcake book. We started brainstorming ideas of what we were going to do this Summer, and our idea of a Cupcake Wars play date was born.
We thought of some people that we knew would have fun with us, and like to bake. Vanessa even got a few of our friends to judge, just like on Cupcake Wars.
Savannah had fun thinking of different ideas, and was so excited to present her cupcakes to the judges. It may have even made her a little nervous. It was cute. Our first round was a lemon cupcake, vanilla butter cream, and toppings to look like corn. Our second round was a chocolate fudge cupcake, chocolate butter cream, and a chocolate dipped marshmallow - rolled in graham crackers.
Everyone of my friends are so creative. Even the judges had cute, snarky comments about our cupcakes. I may have even laughed a lot about the judging.  
Baking is definitely out of my comfort zone, and I stressed more than I needed to about this play date...but it turned out fun. It was fun to do a project with just Savannah, and I think she liked the one-on-one time with just me too.  
I think next time I want to be a judge, and eat all the cupcakes. 
The scary thing, this isn't even all of our kids. That is a whole lotta little people.
Thank you Paul for watching the babies for me.

Thank you Kristina, Stephanie, Gina, Jamie, Cathy, Emily, and was a pleasure. {Please don't make me link to everyone's blog, I am too lazy!}

So much fun! But why the heck do I look so pale next to you? Oh, yeah. 'Cause you're super tan. And there was a flash.

P.S. Love me some coconut Jelly Belly jelly beans. :)

I am glad I am not the only one who stressed about all of this, I almost backed out on Sunday after my cupcake recipe bombed :). It was so much fun to finally meet all of you, thanks again for the invite!! We need to meet at a park or splash pad for a low stress play date ;).
