Big-Eyed Alien Cupcakes!

My husband took our daughter his folks place so I could "tidy up and prepare for tonight" (we're having friends over for dinner and pumpkin carving)... SeCrEt - the TV is on TLC, I've been facebooking & now blogging and next is a long hot shower, then I'll think about power cleaning (!)

I'm proud to say I gave's Big-Eyed Alien Cupcake recipe a try...from here (actually it's Martha Stewart's recipe but she gets enough props). The recipe says to use a thin layer of meringue buttercream, instead, I used a thick layer of plain buttercream b/c that's how I roll.
