So I quickly rearranged my day to stay home and changed gears. Kellan heard me say I was staying home and promptly informed me he was staying home as well (although about mid day think he decided he had had enough of Addie's sick day and asked to go to school to play with his friends :)
As we snuggled in for pirate Dora (the perfect compromise show at our house at the moment :) I asked kellan what he would like to make for the builders putting the final touches on our new porch today- cookies or cupcakes? Out of no where he told me Angry Bird cupcakes- so we did a quick google on it. Luckily we had most everything we needed in the house so I thought sounds fun- why not?
My little helper told me he wanted the red one, the blue one, the yellow one and the mean piggy. Not a big angry birds player myself- have no clue who all these guys really are- but found some great examples online to use as a model.
Because I wanted to use what we had in hand, I used white chocolate melts for white parts of birds and pig noses instead of marshmallows, used candy eyes, caramels for beaks, cut up pieces if gummy worms (yes we have a bizarre collection of candy in hand, i know :) and then just used black icing to draw on eye brows. We used sanding sugar for all colors but yellow since we are out - so just made yellow icing.
