I think it is fair to say that even though my cupcakes didn't turn out too pretty they do taste rather yummy! We have had to cover up the cake dish with a towel to hide it from the little man. As soon as he sees the cupcakes he starts pointing and whining wanting one. And then when we do give him one it is nothing but hmmmms coming from the high chair. I think he gets his love for sweets from me.
