Cupcake Saturday!

It's tme for another Cupcake Saturday! I bet you can't guess the theme for this week's cupcake... Oh, that's right, it's superheroes and princesses! These tiny cakes would be a big hit at a party!
First  up are our superhero cupcakes. These are vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting, topped off with a fondant superhero logo.
(It looks like the frosting was squished down just a little too far... Still tasty though!)
And here are our princess cupcakes. One thing we learned from these is to always have a back-up plan B. Originally, we were planning on making these:
How cute is that?! Our sister got this amazing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs cakelet pan for our birthday and we thought this would be the perfect time to use it. And it was. Until it came time to decorate them. Willams-Sonoma (the brand that makes it) even have step-by-step directions on how to do it. So, we chose to do Dopey first, because he's just the cutest! Yeah, that was a disaster. So, then looking at the picture of them all decorated, we thought we'd try Sleepy, because he only had four (real) colors to work with and seemed to be pretty easy. This is how he came out:
He doesn't look horrible, and I love how he's leaning up against the wall to hold himself up. However, in our opinion, him alone would not be a very good Cupcake Saturday. Needless to say, we didn't even attempt to decorate Snow White. So, instead, we decided on plan B, which are these:
 These can be used for any princess party! They are our vanilla cupcakes with a lemon buttercream. They are topped with a small, hand-cut fondant crown. It's a little hard to tell in the picture, but they are dusted in with a silver pearl dust, to give them a little shimmer.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for a new theme week- it'll be a family affair!
