Grasshopper Cupcakes

My Sister-in-Law turned 24 on Monday May 9, but we celebrated it the next day.  She really likes Grasshopper drinks and the color pink, so I came up with something close. The cake is a dark chocolate mint, the filling is melted Andes with buttercream, and the frosting is Mint Swiss Meringue.  The cupcakes were also JUMBO!

This weekend my husband and I were doing yardwork and he found this little guy!  It is a baby painted turtle, I think it is only a couple weeks old.  I was on the fence about keeping it until my husband named it!  Once he did it was set that he is now our pet.  His name is Donatello....yeah after the Ninja Turtles :). So now we have four pets....
