Re: ABC's with Sprinkles on Top


Only enough time for a cute entry this week. I thought of the saying 'Please with Sprinkles on top!'...so I changed it to 'ABC's with Sprinkles on top.' I chose the red, white and blue to give it a little patriotic look. Could be cute for the 4th of July BBQ.

cute! and I really can't pin you down to a certain style - your entries are all so unique. We say "pretty please with candy on top" around here, and this does look like ABC jimmies (aka sprinkles)

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

Thanks Mia. " Pretty please with sugar on top" is the phrase with which I'm more familiar. But, my daughter likes to say "Please with Sprinkles on Top". We're leaving for Spain soon and her school will be celebrating her birthday early. We're making a bunch of cupcakes for the party....all done as various dog faces. I'll have to take a picture when they're done.

You're always coming up with something new and different. This would indeed be the perfect July 4th shirt. Nice!

I followed your advice and reprised the Peacock Lady look. I'm pleased with what came about. Thanks for the suggstion. :-)

When I was younger, the version I knew was "with a cherry on top." Often we would go overboard and add other similar items - whipped cream, ice cream, strawberries, etc.

Hey Mia - The cupcakes are done! They took forever and probably weren't really worth the expense and effort, but I think the kids will enjoy them! You're daughter's will probably get a kick out of them.

Ehalycon - I do recall the phrase "Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top". Guess there are several versions of the same general idea. Most common for me was 'Pretty Please with Sugar on top."

Very nice KLS! But what school do you go to that lets you bring homemade snacks?? Ours must be individually wrapped. And there are some kids at our school with severe peanut allergies so we have to watch for that too. Homemade cupcakes would never fly! But I'd love to make them for my son's class.

They are gorgeous! Oldest was happy you made cupcakes (almost) on her birthday. Middle was impressed you did 5 of each dog. Littlest loved the puppies, and was happy to see blue dogs. Our dogs are Australian Cattle Dogs, and they come in "blue" and red. We have one of each.

Wish your cupcake entry was doing better, but I have a feeling the real cupcakes will get a lot of points!

The cupcake design was mainly done for my daughter's benefit. Plus, it's more fun to at least have a horse in the derby...even if it's a bit buttery croissant. I'll print a shirt for my daughter when the time is up. We were so busy this week and weekend that I only had a few minutes of downtime.

Happy BDay to the eldest daughter!

Shan-
I know! I wondered about that too! No allergies with any of the students in her class this year. So, no restrictions. Guess it just depends on the class. But, each students gets a day designated to them if they have a summer bday. Cupcakes seem to be the treat of choice among the kids.

The design idea came from the cover of a Family Circle magazine. I didn't do them exactly per the directions, but played around a little with what I had at the house. You might be able to find instructions and pictures online...they were called Pupcakes.

My mom used to make this great alligator cake out of cut up sheet cakes. She used red string licorice to outline the alligator and fruit slices for the scales. Candy Corn for the teeth and a junior mint for the eye. It was always a big hit.
