Hot Wheels Cupcakes

Ok so bear with me as I attempt to get caught up on my blog entries.. it's been a long and busy year! {see previous post with regard to my recent blog hiatus}...

Meanwhile, back on July 5th, we celebrated Oliver's 4th Birthday! {sniff sniff} He decided on a "Hot Wheels" theme since he has a slight obsession with them right now. For his cake, we chose to do Creamsicle Cupcakes (cupcakes are always easier than a cake when I have a million other things to do for a party). He's been LOVING Creamsicle yogurt these days so the flavor decision was an easy one.

I also chose a pretty simple way to incorporate the Hot Wheels theme into his cupcakes.. via handmade cupcake toppers that I found at Over the big Moon. All I had to do was print and cut them out. Here's a pic of a couple of the toppers along with some mini water bottles I put together for his party. Super cute, right?

Here are some pics of the completed cupcakes with toppers. They are orange cake (which was a doctored vanilla cake mix).. with vanilla custard filling and whipped cream frosting. YUM! I thought "chrome" wrappers would be fitting for our theme.. even my cupcake stand had rims!  You can see more of Oliver's party details on my party page!
