It's Cake Time: Blue Icing for the Sunday Blues

You know you need to get a proper piping bag for icing cakes when your boyfriend comes up behind you in the kitchen and exclaims, "Oooh ... those look nice!  (pause) Like little heads" at the sight of your butter-knife icing job on cupcakes.  Sigh.  I'm working on it.

Anyways, it's Sunday and I, like millions of other people out there, have the Sunday blues.  So I decided to express this the only way I know how:  by baking.  I'm not exceptionally good or even mediocre-ly good at baking.  I just find it therapeutic.  Kind of like people who find "art" therapeutic.  Doesn't mean they're the next Picasso, just means it keeps them from slitting their own wrists.

On that cheery note, I found sprinkles and food coloring in my cupboard that I forgot about, so decided to make some baby blue icing (originally I was gonna make cream, baby blue and baby pink icing but I got lazy.  It's Sunday, people.  You gotta save up the motivational mojo for Monday morning).

Now I need to know what to do with twelve of these things, because the only other person in my house isn't going to eat them.  Come on over if you want one.
