Crafting keeps me sane * Baking keeps me smiling * Family keeps me happy * Faith keeps me going

Zoya turns 4 today, and wanted pink…everything pink.  So, her cake is pink and the cupcake frosting is pink, but inside (NOT SO MUCH!)…I saw these funky, multi-color cupcakes on “A Sweet Cake” (here), and wanted to try them…so I ran to Hobby Lobby and bought the food coloring (soooo worth the money, by the way!), and first thing this morning, I made the cupcakes.  I still didn’t have faith that they would turn out like the inspiration, and couldn’t wait until they were baked and I could cut one open!  Here is how they turned out:

I love how they turned out!  Zoya got her pretty pink cupcakes, and everyone was shocked to see the crazy insides!  They just make me smile.  I’ll definitely be making these again!

Here’s the birthday girl:

I can’t believe she’s 4, it seems like just yesterday…Zoya is a ray of sunshine, always twirling and giggling and giving me hugs.  She is full of joy and sweetness with a bit of mischief thrown in for balance.  Although she is all girly (everything needs to be pink!), she is fearless and has more bumps and bruises than any of the other kids!  I am so blessed to have such a wonderful little girl in my life.
