Gay Pride Birthday Cupcakes!

Last night, I brought Lemon Vanilla Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream Frosting to my friend Monica's birthday party:


The theme was Glitter Eyeliner Glam, which explains why I'm wearing so much makeup. And my friend Greg took the picture, so blame him for the lack of focus. Monica's party was on the same day as the Memphis Gay Pride Parade (which I marched in), so I decorated the cupcakes with rainbow sugar. By the way, there is blue sugar where the blue should be, but it's so light that it didn't show up in the picture.


The recipe was a variation on the Golden Vanilla Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Super yummy!

The Dutchman is in town this weekend, and he came to the party too. He even wore "guyliner."


Here's my friend Greg, covered in pink glitter. The glitter theme was his concept:

Omg, those cupcakes rock! I want to make cupcakes now (see what you've done?!). The makeup is also quite awesome... particularly Greg's.

Did you have fun at the Gay Pride Parade?

Love the Pride Cupcakes! I'm sure they were just as delicious as they look! What kind of sprinkles did you use?

Oooooh, how fancy snappy cool your eye make-up is! Lemon-vanilla cupcakes are my favorite for sure, and the pretty rainbow sprinkles are just perfect.
