This is my cute little nephew (2-1/2 years old) eating his way through this delicious Peanut Butter Patties Cupcake. This blog post is also one of thee funniest photo shoots to date here on MOMS CRAZY COOKING.
I was babysitting my nephew (and one of his sisters too) but he just LOVES Aunt Tina's Cupcakes. He knows everytime I see him, stop by his house, or he comes to my house that most likely I will always have somekind of cupcake for him. This time I thought it would be fun to have him bake some with me.
He was a riot taking pictures, best model I've had so far. I would tell him, I need a picture of this or that, make sure you look this way or that way? And he would do just what I asked him. I think my sister needs to tap in on that talent. He would be a perfect model. Even when I wanted the perfect picture of him taking a bite of the cupcake, he put it right to his mouth and said "is this good", "did you get it", and "okay am I done now", "can I take a real bite". IT WAS SO DANG CUTE!!! I could of cooked all day with him, but cupcakes were as far as we got.
Inside BruCrew Life and I just knew I had to try them and I am SOOOO happy I did!
