Jungle Safari Cupcakes

I know you might find this hard to believe, but I made these.  Baked them, decorated them, served them.  I am NOT a decorater, so we do need to get that cleared up.  I can bake with the best of them, but my decorating skills usually stop past the one layer of frosting.

When my friend asked me to help with these cupcakes for her son's birthday party, I of course agreed, but let's be honest I was a little nervous once taking a look at the directions.

Zebras, monkeys, tigers and lions.  The zebras were a *#$%!, but the other jungle animals cooperated pretty good.  In fact, I just may go out on a limb and say I'd do this again!

Zebra - yeah, I know doesn't really look like one.

I think the monkey and the tiger are my favorites.  Maybe because they were the easiest?  Needless to say I think I ate three cupcakes Saturday afternoon.  Oh plus, a barbecue pork sandwich, beans, cheese dip, fruit, relishes, crackers/cheese, peanut butter M&M's, and I'm just ashamed to keep naming things so we'll stop there.

Not a good weekend for the diet!

If you are interested in making these cuties, the recipe can be found here.  Gotta give it up to Betty she really knows everything.

Do you make your own goodies for birthday parties?  You know how I feel on this one.....
