So late last night I randomly found out that this week has been National Engineers Week! Being married to a Mechanical Engineer, I had to have fun with this even though it is now Friday and the week is almost over. I tossed together some cupcake batter and popped them in the oven and grabbed some heavy cream, powder sugar and some gel food coloring and made a quick frosting.
While the cupcakes were baking, I whipped out some fun cupcake toppers totally on the fly using my Silhouette Cameo. I found the Pi image online and imported, printed, and cut them in less than 10 minutes. Then I made the argyle sentiment toppers using the tools and color patterns that came stock on my Silhouette software in about 10 minutes as well. I have to say I L-O-V-E my Silhouette! The cupcake toppers were done just as the cupcakes were ready to come out of the oven! The hubs is pretty happy to have a fun little treat to bring to the rest of the “Nerd Herd”. I am super happy I could throw this together so quickly to close out a week that honors their genius innovation and brilliance and total logical approach they bring to the world. The funny thing is, I don’t think any of them have any idea that this week exists nor do they really care, but they will love the fact it is a reason to get cupcakes! 🙂
Thanks for sharing a piece of “honoring the Nerd Herd” pie with me.
