The whole aqua-and-red color scheme has really blown up lately. I see it everywhere. Did anyone else notice that even the Superbowl logo was aqua and red this year? (I ask that as if anyone other than me is reading this blog.)
I'm still not sick of it. It looks so fresh to me--like toothpaste or something. I'm sure it will get old soon enough, like brown and pink eventually did (sort of. I still like some brown and pink). But I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
So, J's cupcakes got the aqua and red treatment today. This is more of a minty teal, though, which I've seen Martha doing lately, although I think she's going even greener.
The "cherry" on top is actually a gummy raspberry, if you can't tell. Seemed like it'd be less runny. The whole point was to imitate some wooden cupcakes that Bo got for Christmas from her cousins.
Speaking of Christmas, I thought I'd also post a photo of an aqua and red apron I made for her then. She insists on wearing an apron when she cooks--it's either this one or a red one with a gingerbread man that my sister made her.
Oh, and the cupcake stand didn't happen. I bought the supplies but ran out of time. There's always another birthday around the corner ... Heck, who needs a birthday? There's always another reason to eat cupcakes around the corner.
I'm adding a photo to help answer Carolyn's question about how the apron was made. Please forgive the mess--I pulled it from the laundry to take the shot. Check out the comment from me for more details. -M
