So while at work on Saturday I found out that one my work mates had just moved house, so clearly a baking opportunity ;)

 I was originally going to make house cupcakes but then I saw lots of cupcakes that people had made using the faces of the sesame street characters. It seemed like a lot more fun even if it has nothing to do with moving houses haha! But moving can be quite stressful and seeing a crazy face on a cupcake hopefully would cheer people up :)

They were quite fun to make although I didn't get to spend as much time decorating the cakes and I ended up finishing them off the morning of work as I was running late as usual! I only managed to do the faces on 6 of the cupcakes:

They were a chocolate cake that I have used before and judging from the reactions I think it will be my go to chocolate cake. I didn't have a filling for it but because they were small cupcakes with a vanilla buttercream, I don't think that they needed it.

The main problem with these cupcakes was the buttercream. I am not sure if I did something wrong or if it was too hot but the buttercream kept separating a wee bit. I guess it will take a few more practises :)

My favourite was definately cookie monster, mainly because I think that I am most like him in real life haha! Although I actually didn't used to watch Sesame Street as a kid!
