cupcake challenge ::: week 18 ~ london olympics

last week the london 2012 olympic games started. hurray!

we have been enjoying watching the amazing athletes compete along with the special events that have been broadcasted.  the opening ceremony was spectacular.  we were all slightly disappointed that the doctor and tardis didn't make an appearance.  apparently we were not alone...

we are not amused.
but we got over our disappointment quickly with the lighting of the beautiful olympic cauldron.

there are more pictures of the lighting of the cauldron here that y'all should check out.

now onto this week's cupcake challenge olympics.  i found this cupcake decorating set a while back.

i made a box mix devils food cake and my chocolate butter cream frosting.

chocolate butter cream frosting
1 cup butter at room temperature
4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder

cream butter, vanilla, salt, cocoa powder.  slowly mix in by alternating powdered sugar and milk.  you may not use all the milk or powdered sugar depending on the texture you would like.
