Barrie is an office turtle and she turned 5!
I was asked to make two dozen turtle cupcakes to honor the office pet at the Emmons Company
The request was to make the cupcakes similar to the ones I made for Jack's birthday, but instead of a white cake, I was asked to make a chocolate cake, and since Barrie is a girl, I decided to put little licorice bows on her head.
The cake is made from a mixture of cocoa, flour, butter, baking powder & soda, and milk. For the sand I used crushed graham crackers and for the turtle shells I used a mini cupcake pan.
These cupcakes are so fun to make! Hope Barrie enjoyed her birthday!
