Voila! My cupcake masterpiece is complete! I will say though that this is a wonderful idea if you are making SIX...not 60. Sheesh - I spent HOURS on these little guys! I had a great time with the girls though - which made it all worthwhile. It is rare anymore that I have really good moments with Bailey. I know it is normal - the teen years (sigh).....so I relish any and all good memories during these tumultuous years as she finds her way to adulthood. She's a good kid - don't get me wrong....I am just having a VERY hard time letting go - becoming less-important in her life (or at least outwardly so). I know this sounds selfish - but it is a very hard adjustment for me. For so long it was just she and I...and even though she still needs me - I know this to be true - it feels like she doesn't....and I'm having a hard time finding my place - knowing what my Mom role is supposed to look like right now. Ok - sheesh - must have needed a little talk-therapy there for a sec - cuz I truly just meant to post my awesome Santa cupcakes and that's it. Oops.

Well, the cupcakes are fab! And the teen years...... we will survive them. I know exactly what you mean, I am having a hard time with my teen as well....

60? You made 60??? And then you went and got a deep tissue massage, right?

Those cupcakes are so cute. Yes, 60 is a lot of cupcakes. Especially if you are decorating them like Santa.
