Conversation Cupcakes for Mothers Day

Conversation Cupcakes for Mothers Day
Pocket
Is your mother fun?
Is your mother both of these?
Could she, would she, be all three?
Might as well bake up a batch of Conversation Cupcakes, and let her know how you feel about her!
All you need to make these fun Conversation Cupcakes
is a cake mix, a batch of Butter-cream Frosting,
 and a few mini chocolate chips.
Make the signs out of some toothpicks, cute paper and a glue gun!
Then round up a whole slew of folks ready to write the things they love most about dear old Mom (or grandma).
I bet you’ll get a hug and a kiss out of it….

    What a cute mom! After reading what you said about her on the last blog I was hoping you would include a picture. This is such a cute idea.
