A couple of weeks ago, my nephew celebrated his first birthday. I can't believe he is a year old already! It went so fast, he is growing up right in front of my eyes. Since I was always the youngest on both sides of my family, I'm not used to having a little person around to watch grow and change. It is amazing to see his development progress from week to week.
Of course I was ready and hoping I would be able to make him some kind of cake for his birthday, so when my sister-in-law asked if I could make a couple dozen cupcakes for his birthday party I was super excited and raring to go. She requested a batch of chocolate cupcakes with green frosting and a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes with blue frosting. I had such a fun time with these, and think they turned out really well, it was a great way to celebrate this special birthday.
