Owl old are you?

It was my birthday in January, and I finally decided to make the owl cupcakes that I'd been planning for a long long time.  I saw them here and because of my love of owls, I couldn't resist.  Unfortunately, the oreos were a disaster to work with - I had to try and get them in half cleanly to use for the eyes.  It was 8am in the morning, and I'd had enough - I didn't want to be fussing over these on my birthday.  

So... I made one, that looked like an owl, and I ditched the decoration on the others. I think American oreos are better made than English ones.  Either that or whoever made these cupcakes had far more patience than I did!

The best part of the day was that I got to use my cupcake stand - and it really made the whole thing feel that much more special!

I also hosted a nacho party - because I love nachos, and I love spending time with friends.  Last year, my birthday seemed to go by without any sort of celebration so my main aim for this year was to make sure I had some photos.  So, here is one - showing off my fabulous lazy susan that I've had for about 3 years and never used!
