Today EricaSweetTooth is 1 year old! It has been such a fantastic year, and I owe that a lot to how much fun I’ve had with this blog and the gracious support of all of my readers. Granted the past year also included the sometimes-excruciating experience of first year of dental school, I’ve had a blast, managed to advance to second year, and somehow avoided gaining 100 pounds along the way. It’s been a sweet ride, and I’m looking forward to the treats that lay ahead in the 2010-2011 year!

To switch things up a bit for the blog’s big day, I’ve put together a little How-To video for decorating cupcakes as mums. I’m no professional cake decorator, but I just wanted to share how easy it can be to make beautiful cupcake flowers with just a little instruction. Make these for a fall bridal shower or event and you’re sure to impress your friends. Enjoy! Just don’t make fun of me for being totally dorky on camera…

Special thanks to my Dad for helping me tape and edit this video! After the 2309823 takes, I don’t think Hollywood is for me, but I certainly had a fun time pretending for a day.
