Pokemon Cake

Happy 2019! One of my goals for 2019 is to do a complete revamp of the design of this website. This might be a bit ambitious in the midst of graduate school and other personal goals, but I’m going to try! Once this is done, I’d really love to get back into posting more recipes as well as more science content. Wish me luck! To start off the year, I got to celebrate the birthdays of my two adorable nephews Mokshay and Jeeva. Mokshay turned 7 and Jeeva turned 5 in January and they both wanted to celebrate with a Pokemon themed party. Of course, I had to come up...

The smaller emoji cupcakes are mini-vanilla cupcakes covered in fondant. The...
