Nicki's 14th birthday

A friend's daughter turns 14 tomorrow, and rather than choose a cake, Annie chose individual cupcakes for Nicki's sleepover party.  The brief was simply pink and purple, and I recently bought number and letter cutters (though the letter cutters didn't arrive in time) and was keen to try them out.  Because I knew there'd be cupcakes left over from the batch, I added (perhaps not quite enough) mini-Smarties to them because the Team Becca members are kind of over vanilla cupcakes.  Don't get me wrong, they love them and love to see the new and different colour and sparkle topper combinations, but as for eating them... well, they probably want to try new flavours right about now.  Nonetheless, when I delivered these, Annie and Nicki's little sister loved the cupcakes - here's hoping the birthday girl does too!
