Birthday Chimeras

This year's birthday theme for the (now) 11 year old was mythical beasts. Dragons, Gryphons, and Unicorns.

Demonstration cupcakes
I dutifully made cupcakes with different color paper cups, different frostings and, with gum paste, various add ons. Wings, horns, beaks, tails.

Sadly, my buttercream wasn't as smooth as I wanted it to be, but the kids did not care. However, despite the absolute cuteness of my demo-cupcakes, they refused to be constrained by tradition and created a variety of chimeras. Gryphicorns. Draggryphs. Unigons. Whatever.
Then they unleashed the sprinkles.
