Peter's 4th Birthday and Anna's 7th Birthday

Peter turned 4 on June 24th, 2013.  Anna turned 7 on June 25th, 2013  We had a combined birthday party for them on June 23rd, 2013.

Since Anna's birthday falls within summer break, I made cupcakes for her to take to school for her class on May 24th.  (I try to get it as close to one month before her birthday as possible, but May 25th was a Saturday.)


This year, instead of two different cakes, I decided to do cupcakes.  Peter's were scratch made chocolate with scratch made chocolate frosting (yum!) and of course, decorated with the Cars theme in his two favorite characters: Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater.

Anna's cupcakes were the white cake, which was a Funfetti cake, with scratch made frosting.  I made the Cinderella toppers myself.  I found a picture of Cinderella online (I was looking for one with both arms up) then, I put it into Photoshop, reversed it, and altered it to look like Cinderella from the back.  That way, the cupcakes had a front and a back.  I thought it would look weird to have two fronts!
