This past weekend we celebrated my husband’s grandfather’s 90th birthday! We decided to try something a bit more creative than a traditional cake to celebrate this milestone birthday. My Mom, cake baker and decorator extraordinaire, created a cupcake family tree with all of this children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
She started with vanilla and chocolate cupcakes and frosted them all with white frosting. Then she added a mini vanilla wafer each cookie.
The cupcakes (along with plenty extra!) we displayed on a cupcake tree and organized by family. To say it was a hit is an understatement. People were raving about the cupcakes. And, we all tasted delicious! I think it turned out great and I think they are fantastic for a family reunion, milestone birthday or even a kid’s birthday party.
