Little Man Cupcakes

I just had to share pictures the cupcakes my son and I made for his snack day at pre-school. He really loves the movie Cars, so that became the theme. I bought Cars cupcake liners then used a boxed GF/CF chocolate cake mix. The icing is also store bought. I wanted to make homemade, but finding a good GF/CF cake recipe is difficult, so this was easier. Because I had to cheat, I tried to make the cupcakes extra special by using decorator gels to match the colors in the Cars movie. I put three straight lines across each cupcake then used a toothpick to run through the lines a few times. I think I need a little more practice at this to make them neater, but it was so easy to do it was silly! My son was so excited to share his snacks he drove his teachers crazy the whole class time. That's my boy.
