A good friend of mine asked me if I could make her daughter a birthday cake and cupcakes for her 2nd birthday. I of course jumped at the opportunity. I was a little nervous at first because I don't really do character cakes.... but I think Barney turned out GREAT! And the cupcakes looked fabulous as well. Big peaks of buttercream frosting pipped high on top with multicolored nonpareils! Yummy. Barney was a labor of love indeed! All the pipping and detail that went into it to make it perfect for her really paid off because she LOVED it. And so did her dear little daughter! Yeah! Happy Birthday Maddie!!!
