"Pinkalicious" Birthday Cupcakes

With a preschool daughter in my house who loves cupcakes and the color pink, how in the world did I miss a book named "Pinkalicious"? It's about a little girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and turns pink herself. So the design for these cupcakes were straight from the book's illustrations. I made vanilla cupcakes tinted pink, and topped them with a light pink buttercream icing. I added white non-pareil sprinkles and a squiggle of darker pink icing. Finally, I topped the cupcakes with sour cherry candies. They were so adorable! Maybe when we're through the "princess years" over here I can talk my daughter into a Pinkalicious birthday party. So cute!
