Cupcakes tell a story

So, now that we know the sex of the baby, we're posed with the challenge of telling people what it is. To be specific, my in-laws. My dad doesn't want to know, and neither does my brother...why, I ask? I don't have the slightest clue, but that's their perrogative, not mine. So anyway, I wanted to come up with a creative way to tell Nate's family what we were having...and what better way to do it than with food? :)

Thanks to my awesome friend Beth, who is creative and artistic, I decided to mimic her idea of telling her parents the baby's sex with cupcakes. Since only my mom wanted to know in my family, I just told her and showed her pictures. Boring, yes, but she's my mom and would love the baby no matter what. So this week I made my cupcakes and decorated them in the lovely tell-tale colors...they'll be delivered today and I'm looking forward to the expressions. Probably more so for the awesome cupcakes than for the message they bear, but still. I had fun. I think I ate more icing than I used and I found a new love for using the "writing tool" full of icing. I actually had to go to Williams-Sonoma to get one since I've always just used my Mom's! Here's to more icing! 
Here's the cupcakes in their delivery box...ready to go!

And Cecelia with her treats. I think she was we all were and we wish the whole family could have been there to share in the joy, but it was still fun. She does look like a very happy Grandma-to-be!
