Fancy Nancy Cupcakes


FANCY NANCY CUPCAKES



I was asked by a good friend to make some
fun "Fancy Nancy" inspired cupcakes for her
sweet daughter's 5th birthday.

Having not really done much "cupcaking" lately,
this request was perfect to pull me out of my slump.



Although the designs were not elaborate, unique or made
following many hours of painstakingly molding 
individual fondant works of sculpted art, 
I was still VERY pleased with how they turned out.  



As a matter of fact, they were a ton of
FUN to make! Plus, this family is pretty awesome too!

I purchased the printable cupcake toppers
on Etsy, for cheap HERE!



The other embellishments came from either the dollar store
or the dollar bin at Target or Wal-Mart in the party aisle. 

The cupcakes were old fashioned chocolate but the
FROSTING was nothing else but...
PINK BUBBLEGUM BUTTERCREAM!! 



This was the first time I used the Duncan Hines
flavor add-ins and I was very pleased at this flavor.

I love Fancy Nancy, part of me feels we are
"sisters from another mister"....HA!

As always, recipes can be found on my recipes 
page by clicking right HERE!

Take Care!!!

Hello Trish
Those little girls surely squealed with delight when they saw your cupcakes. And, bubblegum flavoured icing, sheer bliss for them!
I haven't made any cupcakes for awhile myself but may be inspired to try something fun.
Hugs,
Judith

Hi Trisha,
Your cupcakes are so cute and I bet a big hit with the birthday girl! I haven't made cupcakes this Summer because it's been too hot. I almost made muffins yesterday but I didn't. Summer makes me lazy when it comes to baking. I actually haven't baked anything since my Anne of Green Gables Tea early in July. They are calling for rain tomorrow and perhaps that will inspire me to get out the mixer. Thank you for stopping by for a visit. It is lovely to hear from you. I hope you're having a wonderful Summer.

Blessings and hugs,
Sandi

Hello,
Just had to comment on your cute "Fancy Nancy" cupcakes! They are so cute! My family gave me a "Fancy Nancy" doll for my birthday a few years ago and I just love her! I guess I'm never too old for dolls! Thank you for sharing!

Oh, I LOVE Fancy Nancy and these cupcakes look fabulous! I'll bet they were a huge hit! And I'm pleased you wrote about the bubblegum add-ins. I saw this product for the first time at the grocery store recently and wondered if it was worth a try or not. Nice to hear your review!
