Am I Now A Cupcake Queen?

Remember THIS post that I made a couple months ago about my sudden want to make cupcakes?

Well, I had sent my mom the link to Bake It Pretty asking for cupcake supplies for Christmas. I did not receive Bake It Pretty supplies, but I did however receive a nice little selection of items to help me get started. My gifts included 5 different types of patterned paper cups, decorations, a cake decorator starter kit with 4 food colourings, pastry bags, and 6 different icing tips, and REAL VANILLA! I was determined to start right away, and it just so happened that I had a pot luck to attend on the 27th. So I promptly found a recipe to try out, and along with the icing I whipped up, here is my first attempt at making 'fancy' cupcakes! The consistency of my icing didn't turn out how I wanted, BUT they still look pretty cool and they tasted phenomenal. So.. it wasn't a complete bust!

Awww they're pretty! And they look yum! Do you eat what you bake or do you give it away to friends? IF so, wanna send some down my way to GA! ;) Just kidding!!

@Ebony - how hard do you think it would be to sneak goodies through customs?? ;)
I try to only eat 1 of everything I bake.. just to make sure it tastes ok. If I ate anymore, I'd probably turn into a marshmellow!!! LOL
