Nate the Great just turned eight, and is our tradition he got to choose whatever he wanted for cupcakes for his class.Animal Crossing New Leaf CupcakesHe wanted cupcakes depicting characters from his favorite video game of the moment, Animal Crossing New Leaf.

The cupcakes themselves were topped with buttercream icing using the Wilton 1M tip, my favorite!  Then they were embellished with just a touch of sprinkles!
