Happy 30th to my Husband! And, Two Cupcake Ideas...

I must admit, I have yet to bake anything for my dear husband's birthday, which happens to be TODAY (Aug 3)!  Since it is his big 3-0, I need to make something special.  His likely dessert request would be Wookie Cookies - yes, it's a recipe we got from dear friends who own the surely-best-selling Star Wars Cookbook.  They are very special chocolate chip cookies because they have cinnamon and two types of chocolate chips in them.  Plus, the recipe name has the word "Wookie" in it.  Who wouldn't love them? (I'll take pics and post the recipe next week...)

In commemoration of this special day, I thought I'd share two fun cupcake decorating ideas with you that you can simply do with some store-bought cake mix, frosting, and food coloring.  Let's be honest - how many of us actually make our own cake mixes on a regular birthday basis?

For my birthday last year, I was surprised with some super cute Addie-and-Daddy-made "M&M" cupcakes:

Such a fun idea!  When I asked "why M&Ms?", my handsome hubby said, "oh, I guess because they're my favorite candy - you like them too, right?".  How I adore that man!

The next cupcake idea was inspired by a painter's palette.  I whipped these up for one of multiple celebrations of our little gal's first birthday.

They ended up more "pastel" than the picture I modeled them after and I used a wooden cutting board instead of a real painter's palette, but they were tasty and adorable all the same.

Do you have any fun cupcake decorating ideas?  We're mega cupcake fans in this household, so do share!
