There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

So The ManFlesh works at a foundation that is Elk-related (yes, really) and they have an Employee Crisis Assistance Program that has various fundraisers throughout the year, like chili cook-offs and bake sales.  Last month their bake sale was so successful they decided to do another one this month - on St. Patrick's Day.  Teehee, my *last contribution was so popular that The ManFlesh was asked if I would be contributing again.  Roll Eyes   Well, I'd already planned on making Irish Car Bomb cupcakes for his team, so I was already almost ready to make them for the bake sale!  



I just had to add fun toppers for the bake sale.  this piece by D Trudeau** was perfect (and I didn't even know it had been post of craftster)  While trying to decide on imagery, I got the idea to use Irish Elk!  POW! and BAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!  There are more deets about all that went into these as well as links to the original recipe & details about Irish Elk, as well as a photo of my T-rex dressed for the holiday (no kiddin') on my blog - AFTER March 17, 2014, 7a US Mountain Time. http://suddenlytaxidermy.blogspot.com/2014/03/a-touch-of-blarney.html
