All of a sudden I feel like the gayest gay that ever gayed!
I made 24 "Hello Kitty" cupcakes to take along to the Saturday night farewell party for my friends Spyder & Gordy, who depart for Melbourne in a few week's time. I used the same recipe as last time, but took it up a few notches with pink, yellow and green pastel icing, star sprinkles, and the piece de resistance - soft sparkly "Hello Kitty" sweeties.
These "Hello Kitty" sweeties were a real find. Remember the bizzaro Death Adder sweeties from last year? Yup, same same! These ones I bought from a different store, the cake decorating place Iced Affair in Camperdown. Like the death adders last year, they just came in a plain bag labelled product of Vietnam. Curious, non?
These went down a treat. The platter didn't even make it to the table before it was two thirds empty! Ever seen seagulls descend on some discarded chips? Trust me. Not. Dissimilar.
