The Ultimate Preppy Party Animal!

Alexander is bringing cupcakes in for his class Birthday party tomorrow. It was supposed to be last week, but a few illnesses held us back a bit. He wanted the "Dragon" that I made for his end of the year class party last year. (It's an alligator, really, and the school mascot.) So I did what any (insane, out of her mind mother would do) and opt not to get the $5 pretty cupcakes with sprinkles at the grocery store and spend an enormous amount of time to create Old Swampy. Actually. It's pretty easy to do. I got the idea from my Hello Cupcake cookbook. Every mom who likes to bake should have one!
