31 Party Cupcakes

So my 31 Party originally scheduled for a few weeks ago was rescheduled for this weekend.  I made Cosmopolitan Cupcakes and Frosting for this girly event!  Then I placed my fondant "31 product" toppers on them.  I think they came out cute!

In the works...

Completed Cupcakes...  
The pale pink frosted are "mocktail" cupcakes for the young ladies who attended the party :)  
..the taupe frosted are the real deal!

St Patrick's Day Cupcakes

Ok so I never tasted Guinness before and decided that I MUST before putting it into my cupcakes!  Well I did and may I just say "BLeCK!"  Needless to say I then found it very difficult to pour that stuff into my batter.. but had to trust in the recipe :/

Below are some pics of the completed cupcakes.. overall they turned out pretty good.  I thought the cupcake itself seemed dry and on the bitter side (from the Guinness I'm guessing) but combined with the Bailey's Buttercream, the cupcakes were yummy.  The Bailey's is definitely detectable in the frosting!  It can almost be too much if you aren't careful.. I did a combination of Bailey's and Milk for the liquid in my Buttercream (slightly more Bailey's :) and it turned out perfect!

Zebra Makeup Cake

Ok so I got too busy with this Cake during the week and didn't get to post fondant makeup pics.. but here's the completed Cake, which is carrot with cream cheese filling and icing (the Birthday Girl's favorite.)  Hope she likes it.. her mom was surprising her!  (I LOVE SURPRISE CAKES!!)
