So . . . when it comes to mythical creatures, Nathan and I are total suckers.

Wait. That sounded super weird. Let me explain.

When it comes to Santa, The Elf on the Shelf, the Leprechaun, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Nathan and I are total suckers.

That still sounds really weird.

It’s just, we love to spoil our kids. But we don’t want them to be spoiled brats. So, if we can put it off on some mythical creature, we do it. And we go nuts. But really, Nathan goes nuts. I’m going to blame all of this on him. #andim37weekspregnantsoitotallycan

Take St. Patrick’s Day for example. I was pretty sure the Leprechaun could only afford to shop in the Dollar Spot at Target for the kids. I mean. It’s St. Patrick’s Day for goodness sake. I was wrong. It’s possible the Leprechaun has a bank roll that I don’t know about, because he showed up with sparkly shoes, fancy books, and pricy games. #psssstnathanistheleprechaun

And now as we are approaching Easter, I am also thinking Dollar Spot for filling the baskets. Plus some yummy candy that I can eat when they aren’t looking. Apparently the Easter Bunny is thinking that he would like to get the kids new bikes. Say what now? The Easter Bunny and I had a long chat, and we are back on the same page. #untilhereadsthispost #imintrouble

But it does seem as though the baby sister might be brining new bikes #thatsgoingtomakeforapainfuldelivery

While Nathan spoils them with purchases, I just slip them copious amounts of sugar. As I was frosting these cupcakes for the photo shoot, Quinn pulled over a chair, got up to counter level, and said wanted one. A carrot cupcake is basically the same thing as a muffin, so I handed her one unfrosted. She looked at me like I could not be dumber and said, “No, I want frosting.”

Naturally, I handed her a spoonful.

Let’s talk about these cupcake toppers! It would be really easy to double the recipe, just make sure that when you do, you make them in two separate 8 by 8 pans. Also, make sure that you really evenly split the sweetened condensed milk, as you want to keep your chocolate to scm ratio correct.

If you are looking for what bunny cookie cutter to use, this is the one I bought. Though I will caution you that while it will show up to your house in two days with Amazon Prime, the bunny might have a dent or two in his tummy that requires surgical operation with pliers.

The good news is that it also makes cute little bunny shaped peanut butter and jellies that your two year old will affectionately refer to as “Rabbit Dinner.” #imasbadastheleprechaun

    Lisa, you always crack me up (your hashtags are particularly impressive feats of hilarity). Plus, now I want way more mythical holiday creatures in my clearly deprived life! These fudge toppers are the best idea. I mean, sugar on sugar on sugar? You just can’t lose.
