End-of-year school class party cupcakes

Well, it's that time again but this time end of term actually means end of year.  Gosh, that time has flown past.  Such a shame that the weather is truly rubbish just now, it certainly doesn't feel like Summer at all.  Mini-Becca #2 was told that it would be summertime after Daddy then Mummy's birthdays (May 25 and June 4) and she was excited, because it meant she could wear short-sleeved tee shirts and shorts, but alas that isn't the case. 
Yesterday at 4pm we were caught in an almighty thunder and lightening hail storm while walking home from coffee at a schoolfriend's house.  Yep, that's right, walking.  We were totally drenched and peeled off our sodden clothes the minute we finally got home.
Perhaps that's why Mini-Becca #1 chose the particular shade of blue for the P1, P2 and P3 classes garden party mini cupcakes (party held this morning), to reflect the sky she so desperately wants to see...  She also chose mini marshmallows as the decoration, and here we see her and her sister trying very hard to place the marshmallows on top of the iced cupcakes, without upsetting the design. 
Do you think they managed??
The larger ones to the left, with fresh blueberries, are for the teachers - no reason they should miss out (and a batch makes more than the requested 51 mini cakes).  Initial feedback was very positive, with compliments from the kids on the cupcakes, and from teachers on the icing.  Go Team Becca, we rock!!
