Flops never hurt no1

My friends son turned 2 this weekend and I was "commissioned" to make Barney cupcakes. The initial plan was to have the actual image of Barney on the cake, but the official catering company was doing that and after much discussion we decided to make something different..

the plan was to make plain vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing - using the colours of Barney (purple, green and yellow) 9 YES yellow features in Barney not ON Barney) :)

I spent Friday nighr preparing the goods (along with other orders that I had) so only slept at 1 am. woke at 7am to decorate the goodies...
finally we leave the house....all im thinking is how happy I am that my friends ordered from me for a PARTY! Yay...
The sun was beltering on saturday so I opted to move the box of cupcakes from my lap (out of direct sunlight) to the floor (cool shade)

I don't know what the F happened but in a SPLITTT second, my beautiful piping was DE-STROY-ED!!! SH* man.. I was so sad I burst into tears (I think it was fatigue) but shoo I cried..and cired some more...

Good news though is that the kiddies still ate the cupcakes (the ones that looked good) and they preferred them to the catering companies that made my day! :)

What an experience!
