Ethan's Mr & Mrs Potato Head and their Detachable Parts Cupcakes

These were last minute cupcakes which I made for my son Ethan to celebrate his belated birthday with his friends, teachers and therapists at The Learning Connection, a school for children with learning disabilities. Still exhausted from the weeks of preparation and creation of my "Black Lace" wedding cake entry at the ICCA Cake Competition, I had decided not to celebrate his birthday this year. Also, some important family members were not around on the day itself . However, I changed my mind and these cupcakes were the result. I chose this theme because Ethan has a Mr Potato Head toy which his therapists  uses  to teach him body parts via play, and I also thought that it would be fun for the children to identify the parts while enjoying the cupcakes.
