Here's a little birthday gift for a pre-teen who's quit biting her nails... a cupcake container filled with six bright quick-dry nail polishes, dressed up as cupcakes! When the lid snaps shut they look just like perfect little cakes waiting to be delivered.
This is what 386 real cupcakes look like... more or less. The display table was full on Saturday and the Cheerios pulled from trays behind the table. They sold out in just a couple of hours. They offered special summer flavours including lemonade...
Zesty lemon sponge cake topped with a tart lemon-lime buttercream and a lime jelly wedge.
Orange creamsicle (orange sponge cake with a vanilla buttercream and orange jelly slice).
Sweet Tart candy-inspired (vanilla sponge tinted green with vanilla buttercream and a swirl of tart lime frosting, sprinkled with Sweet Tart candy).
The watermelon cupcakes were a huge hit! The sponge was vanilla with a watermelon extract added, pink colouring and mini chocolate chips (for seeds) and topped with vanilla buttercream, green and pink sprinkles and a watermelon jelly slice.
The Cheerios also offered their usual cupcakes including Oreo, death by chocolate, grasshoppers, red velvet, M&M, chocolate covered strawberry, bubblegum, and classic birthday vanilla.
Friends, the Cheerios are working frantically to raise funds for all-important safety mats so that they can jump, stunt and tumble without fear of injury and stay competitive as they enter senior categories at competition next year. Saucy has to say, she's just a little miffed. When was the last time you ever heard of a football team having to raise funds for their protective helmets and shoulder pads?
