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!
