PURRRPLE cupcakes for Kensie

My little 3 year old niece Kensie is what I call a wonderful nutbar - full of energy and sweetness. She likes playing fake lemonade stand, LOVES mermaids and princessy dress up but ALSO loves pretending she's Linsanity (Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks) or Ryan Kesler (of the Vancouver Canucks). She's super athletic already - both her parents are sports stars. When I was pregnant with Teddy, she'd always ask me what the baby was saying, and was he sleeping in there, and what did he look like, and what was his name?? She would kiss me belly and would make sure I ate enough:  "you have to eat Auntie Lyndsay, for the baby!!" She's so cute sometimes it makes me want to cry, you just never want these sweet little monkeys to grow up even one more minute, you want them to stay mini and hilarious and innocent forever... !

Kensie loves the colour purple... and has been talking about her purple cupcakes that Auntie Lyndsay is making for her 3rd birthday party since probably the day after her 2nd birthday... ! I made chocolate cupcakes with light purple vanilla buttercream, and a ruffly buttercream cake, with a hand drawn special mermaid flag in the likeness of Kensie!!

Happy birthday to my little munchkin Kensie! Auntie Lyndsay loves you lots!
