Pirate Cupcakes

I can't believe I almost forget to post Evan's pirate cupcakes! He had talked about having a pirate cake for months, but it turns out I am a horrible cake maker. Well, I'm horrible at getting the cake out of the pan. I tried multiple times, asked friends for advice, searched the Web, but I still couldn't do it. It was very frustrating. But Evan would have been devastated if I didn't come up with something Pirate themed, so I baked the next best thing:

After Mark and I finished putting the final touches on them, Evan gave me the biggest grin and an even bigger hug.

Happy 5th Birthday, Evan! I can't wait to see what this year brings for you.
