I’ve been meaning to post this lovely little picture for a minute and keep forgetting. So here we are. Lula celebrated her 1st birthday on September 13th so we had a small get together in her honor. My mother commented on what a feat it was to get 15 people to a dog’s birthday party. I truly believe it was the promise of pupcakes that was the clencher for most.
The only hangup was my grass frosting. Taking inspiration from Martha Stewart’s Ladybug Cupcakes, I made sure I had the right Ateco tip and everything, but my Swiss Meringue Buttercream was just too creamy! What should’ve looked like sprigs of grass ended up looking like gloopy, green…well, frosting. But the cupcakes were still adorable/delicious, and Lula will have another birthday next year. I’ll try a second attempt at grass frosting then, I guess.
Speaking of ladybug’s, guess what my co-workers Casie and Megan got Lula for her birthday?
