I wanted to incorporate something that H loves into his cupcakes…but what? Tractors? Cars? Somebody else’s shoes? I finally decided on airplanes. I really wanted more generic airplanes, but the ones from Disney’s Planes were on clearance at Target…so! (And, interestingly, E picked out a plane from the movie for H for Christmas and none of us realized it at the time. A recurring accidental theme!)
With simple blue frosting, some puffy white clouds and tiny planes – perfection! The kids at the party loved it. (The grown ups liked ’em too.)
