mini me

$550 later, the car is back. And I got rid of the personalized plates. Take that stalkers! This took me ALL day to accomplish and I had to go to three different places - the DMV, the police, then the impound lot. (Did I fail to mention that this is actually not my car? It's um, someone else's car...who lives with me.)

Long story short I spent all day getting this stuff done, my head was all crazy, and....I forgot to pick up the Kid. Oh. Crap. It was past 5, and I always like to get there early and be the first to pick them up. I can't stand the thought of their little lonely selves being the last ones there. Luckily daycare doesn't close til 6, so I wasn't really late, just later than I would have liked. I am very hard on myself, as you can tell. The Kid didn't even notice. Still, I felt awful.

To make up for it, I let the Kid help make the 'treat' for his school birthday celebration. I filled MINI CONES (too cute) with cake batter, so they came out like mini ice cream cone cupcakes. Just enough sugar for a 3 year old, if you ask me. Then I frosted them and he added the little sugary sprinkles.

Check out what I rigged up to carry these things to school. Yes kids, Mommy just bought a pair of faux croc 2-1/2 heel pumps. But it was only so I could carry the cupcakes in the lid, honest.

Mini ice cream cone cupcakes how to, HERE.

I hope the kids like them, along with their gift boxes. It's going to be a fun day, as long as I don't forget and leave him there again. ~sigh~ .

Mini cones? That's perfect!

I tried this once with regular size cones and I totally messed it up. The batter erupted like volcanoes and spilled out over the side. Someone told me that you need to use a certain kind of batter.

Of course I used box mix so that's probably where I went wrong, right?

Don't be so hard on yourself. If some of the parents I deal with made half the effort you do parenting, they'd be amazing. You're just really amazing and you have great kids who will appreciate it.

No, no, no. Box mix is just fine however, you know I'd die first before using that, so I made mine from scratch.

But box mix should be fine, that eruption is normal, you just need to fill less. These erupted too but I wanted that to give a 'poofy' ice cream look.
