My nephew just turned 5! I still can't believe it. Shannon asked me to make some cupcakes for his party and I was happy to oblige.
I took the opportunity to attempt fondant for the first time. Due to limited time, I bought the pre-tinted kind from Michael's. So, all I had to do was roll it and cut it out. It was really fun to work with. Like Play-doh for bakers.
I even free-handed little "5"s and "J"s.
