Cinco De Mayo

For Cinco De Mayo I celebrated my friend's daughter's 2nd birthday 
and it was quite the FIESTA!
Alaina (mother of the birthday girl) asked me to make cupcakes 
for the occasion and I gladly obliged.
I decided on Mexican Chocolate Surprise cupcakes.
I baked basic chocolate cupcakes and made Mexican chocolate frosting
What's the surprise you ask? A mini Reese's in the cupcake!
 A friend of mine gave me some vanilla from Mexico.... AMAZING!!!
I made the toppers from tissue pom stickes by Martha Stewart 
(they carry her crafts at Joann's now... AHHH!!!).
And then.... because I'm crazy.... I purchased this can at the Dollar Tree 
because I'm in LOVE with the colors AND
I wanted to take pictures of the cupcakes on the can and 
I LOVE them!!!
