My oldest daughter will be turning 8 over holiday break,
so today I brought cupcakes to her school to celebrate!
I didn't have the time or energy to make something from scratch
(birthdays within a week of Christmas wear me out!);
but I still wanted to make it special.
Thankfully, Wal-mart's bakery had mini cupcakes
already decorated in pink and purple icing
(any girl's favorite colors!).
Wanting to find something cute to top them,
I ran by Michael's.
These glittery butterfly clips jumped out at me.
They were perfect!
I know that cupcake toppers were not their intended use,
but they were exactly what I wanted.
Each butterfly was backed with a clip
(I disinfected before use),
that I inserted into the icing.
In the end, my girl was happy,
her classmates were impressed,
and I enjoyed bringing a stress-free treat!
