Stawberry Pop Rocks Cupcake - Day 28

Someone (Jadee or Justicia and Shawn) gave me Pop Rocks for my birthday. They appeared in one of the purple bags I had on my table. I was very excited to discover them and made them into really good cupcakes. Also, someone told me the other day that Pop Rocks were banned when they were first released because kids were choking on them. Oh my. Then they changed the recipe and they were on the market again. Crazy. Here's the wikipedia page on Pop Rocks.

Chocolate Coconut with Coconut Frosting - Day 26

I like how the frosting is sort of dripping over the edge of the cupcake.
