Yesterday my co-worker and good friend Jamie turned 26. She wasn't in the office on Tuesday so I thought I would surprise her today with red velvet cupcakes! As toppers, I made mint green toothpick flags to place on each little cake. I think they kind of look like little boats now! I had a lot of left over cupcake doilies from my Holly Jolly garlands, so making cupcakes seemed like the way to go. And, as an added bonus, I got to test out my new oven mitt and cooking timer.
