My father-in-law attends a Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey party every year and this year he asked me if I could make some fun cupcakes for him to take along! Obviously loving the Pen's (and my F-I-L of course!) I said absolutely. I made two flavors- Chocolate Raspberry Cake with Amaretto Buttercream and Coconut Cake with Lime Rum Buttercream. Very delicious. Brandon helped me pick out some of the most well known Mike Lange quotes (not being from Pittsburgh, I find them very fascinating and odd...) so that's what's written on the little white plaques. "He doesn't know whether to cry or wind his watch!", "Get in the fast lane Grandma, the bingo game's ready to roll", "Lord Stanley Lord Stanley bring him the Brandy!" just to name a few. I painted the old school pen's logo with food coloring and then decorated all the mini's with sprinkles. I don't know why but I'm just loving mini cupcakes with sprinkles lately, so cute!
LET'S GO PENS!
