a peek into my life..........cupcake carnage.

This time I did not giggle. In fact a completely primal scream came out of me.
Tomorrow I am having a birthday party for Max and Ollie, so today I spent all day baking. I made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, frosted to perfection. I put them in my cupcake stacker all ready to go.
Then  I went outside to go throw away the trash(why?!!) and came in to find Harper..........
Harper opening up my stacker, I then screamed a scream that resembled a wookie and 36 cupcakes came tumbling down. They were on the table, on the floor, everywhere.
I don't have it in me to bake more. 
Is it totally ghetto to just fix the frosting and give it to the kiddos?

Not at all! It would be ghetto if you had let Harper lick all the frosting off before re-frosting them though! ;)

I'm that mean mom that threatens her kids with death if they touch my frosted cakes.. got that move from my grandma, but she was better at it because deep down inside I believed she would actually do it.

3 year olds are hard sometimes. They try to be good, but their curious nature usually sidetracks them into trouble. Kudos for snapping a picture .. I usually forget to document in the midst of kid disasters.

My friend got in a car accident with 50 cupcakes while on her way to a baby shower. She called me from the scene and said, "Make more frosting and bring it!"
I did, and we refrosted in my car and they looked flawless. Not ghetto. Besides, their kids!

Oh no!!! Totally not ghetto, I say go for it!

Melany said...

how horrible! just re-frost them my dear. they will look flawless again i'm sure!

Ahhhhh!! I would have cried, and come very close to beating my child. I would totally re-frost them, as long as you use fresh frosting. Just don't scrape the floor to salvage it. That would be ghetto. hahaha

I give you kudos for taking a picture of the 'carnage'. That is the advice I give all mothers...take a picture first THEN get mad!

I hope you refrosted those babies and passed them off as good!

Debby said...

Ahhhhhh, poor you. Just refrost. I am sure it will be a funny thing later.

I have a "Harper" of my own...he gets lots of hugs and kisses from me because I feel like I am constantly yelling "Noooooooo" or "Oh noooooo" or a variation of that. The magical thing about cupcakes...they taste GOOD no matter what they look like.

You're gonna laugh about this.....SOMEDAY. I would totally re-frost or just buy them (go to Sams Club).

My niece, who has 3 kids, paid to have this beautiful fondant cake made, I was at her house, when the cake was delivered. When my niece was walking the cake lady out, she got this "deer in headlights" look about her, ran in the house, to find that her 3 year old took a HUGE (and I mean, HUGE) bite out of the center of the cake. I thought she was gonna flip....glad I was there to save the little guy. LOL. She laughs NOW.

Melinda said...

Oh my, that would so be my son. Can't take my eyes off him for one second! I would just go buy some from Costco or something! haha I'm so sorry though, that is so sucky!

Christy said...

Definitely refrost them. Life is too short. ; )

Wendy said...

Oh, bless you! All these ladies have great advice and I agree.

Jocelyn said...

Hopefully you re-frosted them! I look at it this way, they will looks worse coming out after they are eaten.

Take plenty of before and after pix! Defrost and smile like a cheshire cat!

Carrie Mc W said...

Oh and part B: If you are going to laugh about it someday, might as well start today!

Melin said...

Go for it! Refrost them, the kids won't know the difference. Never let a good cupcake go to waste.

Hellz no it's not ghetto. I'd have let out a few cuss words too. (repentance is amazing isn't it?) I'd have frosted them babies up and taken them like that and not said a word about their previous state. Ohhhhhhh these Harper boys, what are we going to do with them?
