Where The Wild Things make Wilder Cupcakes!

I went to go see Where The Wild Things Are tonight! (: It was a great time, I went with my friend Ryan and a few other people. Based ona 12-line children's book, it was a very artistic film- something that wasn't really for children directly. It was semi-dark, and psychologically stimulating. Ryan and I both take AP Psych and we were both thinking to ourselves about the symbolic merit of the movie, aside from the funny jokes. It was a simplistic movie in the thought processes of the ccharacters, and I really enjoyed it! Do watch the trailer:

In other news, I made some cupcakes this week. But NOT just your ordinary, every-day cupcakes; mine were TYE-DYE! Take a look!

I love them! A while back I scoped these groovy little treats on Baked By Melissa's flavor page! But instead of a recipe for cupcakes, I took some white cake mix and just added some food coloring!

I separated the batter into 6 separate bowls, using different colors (red, yellow, green, blue, purple, and white) in each bowl. I just added some food coloring and mixed it up.

I took different spoonfuls of the colors and mixed and matched them in their little individual cupcake holder things so each cupcake was different, stuck them in the oven for 20 minutes, and let their magic happen!

Yummy, no?

Finally I took them out of the oven to cool before putting on some vanilla icing and packing them in a bright pink Betsey Johnson giftbox to bring to my chorus rehearsal! (: Aren't they cute?

Weekly roundup is coming on Sunday, stay tuned!
