Why I love my sisters

8:00am: Try frosting cupcakes to look like Bert, Ernie, Elmo and Cookie Monster

8:05am: Start getting in bad mood

8:10am: Hudson guesses that my "Ernie" is "Bert"

8:15am: Rob tries to help me by making another Ernie...it equally sucks (sorry Rob)

8:20am: Realize I haven't fed Hudson or Bosco any breakfast because I'm trying to make dumb cupcakes

9:05am: Call my sister Susan at work and tell her I need her to bring a back-up cake for Hudson because my cupcakes are friggen ugly

She tells me she already had planned to bring one (actually I think she said two).

I tell her I didn't prepare any loot bags.

She informs me she has those ready for me too.

I tell her I love her before I hang up.


The inspiration for my attempt


"My" version (that looks like Hudson decorated his own birthday cupcakes)

What I did with the rest of the icing...they look a lot more edible, don't they?

You are too funny; I'll try one of you very sugary looking creations... I'm going to have to brew a very large pot of strong coffee for me with an equally large jug of milk for the kids.
See you soon!

ps. Don't expect too much from my lootbags!

Wow! Your sister rocks!!!
And I don't think the Bert & Ernie cupcakes are ugly. I think they are quite cute. Cookie Monster has the coolest eyes. Good job Joyce!
