Umm...forgive me for the ugly frosting...they actually read
" Epi 22nd bday"

  1. Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl till light in color.
  2. Add in eggs to the butter mixture, one at a time and mixing it well after each addition.
  3. Add in vanilla extract and mix well.
  4. Fold in sifted flour and mix until just combined.

Mom had a hard time guessing the words on the cupcakes. Her guess was E-P-I ???? A-L-O-Y. I think i need to improve my decoration skills a lot. This is truly embarrassing...haha!
