Going Away Cupcakes

I made these for a going away luncheon for Katie and Jessica. They are leaving the great state of Alabama and moving to Utah. I had to make sure I threw in the y'all since they will not be hearing any of that there. The letters are made from green chocolate.

King of the "grill"

Ethan and I made these for my husband for Father's Day. He is truly the king of the "grill" so it was a fun theme to go off of this year. We found these on the Family Fun website.

We made chocolate cupcakes and cream cheese frosting tinted black and gray (for the slats).
Hot dogs-hot tamales with black gel grill marks. We applied all the grill marks with a toothpick.
Kabobs- red, green and yellow fruit slices cut in squares and caramel shaped and cut into meat. We used a toothpick for the skewer.
Chicken-caramel squares cut and shaped into chicken
Hamburger-grasshopper cookie with a orange Starburst flattened into a slice of cheese. I wish I could have found a smaller cookie for the burger but you get the idea.
*we used a little orange sugar to look like hot charcoal.
Happy Father's Day!
