Fela Kuti Cupcakes

For Mr. Sweetheart's 34th birthday a few weeks ago, I surprised him by sneaking to his place of work before he got there, and decorating up the back room with streamers and a "Happy Birthday" banner I made. Since Fela Kuti is is number one favorite, I decided to make he and his coworkers Fela Kuti cupcakes. They were white cake topped with homemade buttercream icing and jumbo rainbow sprinkles. I made toppers with 1.5" circles punched from lime green paper to which I glued Mr. Kuti's smiling face. They were a big hit, but somewhat puzzling to his New Country and Top 40-lovin' coworkers.

I made him this silly card too.

I am so in love with my new circle punch and corner rounder punches! I tell ya, it ain't natural how much I love them.

Here's a video of Fela in action.

Look for another birthday themed post soon, since Sugar Pea was born two years ago today.

I just can't imagine loving a baked good more than I love those cupcakes. You. Are. A. Genius.

And I really like the new banner/header thing you've got going on. :)

for some reason, I hadn't looked at that new banner. That's badass, baby.
