Buy me some cupcakes and Cracker Jacks

Today is my co-worker's birthday. So I made cupcakes.
Pretty liners

The recipe is called "The Best Birthday Cupcakes" from "Cupcakes from the Cake Mix Doctor."
Ingredients for The Best Birthday Cupcakes

I played around with fondant for the first time.

And put Brent to work, helping me decorate.
Hottie hubby helping

I think they turned out well. Oh, and did I mention that my co-worker looooooves baseball? A lot. He's a HUGE Dodgers fan.
The entire batch

I especially dig this one.

And this one. Brent hates baseball. He thinks it's lame. I agree. Hopefully my co-worker will have a sense of humor. If not, I'll gobble this one down before he gets too pissed.
Hubby's joke

They taste quite yummy, if I do say so myself.

Oscar: I can … help out if you need me.
Michael: I will use your talents come baseball season, my friend. Or if we box.
