Makeover Monday: 4th of July edition

Before: Sophie and I baked 2 dozen devil's food cupcakes.
*Note my fabulous new Hazel Atlas ruffle dish underneath :)
~*~
During: After making *red*, white and blue frosting, the decorating commenced.  Despite the poor lighting, I think you can tell that this is a child about to burst with excitement.  It's bittersweet to be 5 and surrounded by chocolate and frosting!
~*~
Ta-dah!

Just kidding.  These were found HERE.

After: The REAL 4th of July cupcakes!  Yes, from yesterday until today we have managed to eat 8 cupcakes.  EIGHT CUPCAKES!  In our defense, they are small and best eaten fresh :)
~*~
Happy Independence Day to all of my American friends, and happy Monday to my International peeps.  Whatever you all do today, I hope you truly enjoy your freedom!!
