hunger games inspired

I saw The Hunger Games on Saturday with my mom and I really enjoyed it! I just finished the books while on vacation last week and was surprised at how I much I really liked them. I still don't understand all the hype, but the books and film were excellent.

I wanted to bake a Hunger Games inspired cupcake before seeing it in theaters but unfortunately didn't have time on Friday night. Since I spent most of Sunday starting the grieving process due to Syracuse's loss on Saturday night, I thought it would be a perfect time to bake some up.

I baked a chocolate spice cake with a brown sugar buttercream. They turned out great in my opinion! The cake had the right amount of spice and heat and the buttercream was not overly sweet.

{This picture is horrible. I'm sorry!}

{This one is better.}

The brown sugar buttercream is seriously delicious. It has landed itself on my list of favorite frostings. Sweet and not too thick, it would be a great pair with lots of different flavored cakes.

Did you see the film? What did you think of it?

  1. I haven't seen the movie yet since we thought it'd be better to wait til the hype died down a bit. You know, less crowds & kids talking throughout it haha.

    Your cupcakes came out great! My mouth is totally watering just looking at the photo.

  2. I've just read the first two books, currently reading the third and saw the first movie yesterday, there were 10 of us in the cinema! I'm glad I waited a few days!
    I think the movie definitely did justice to the books!
    Your cupcakes looks awesome!


Thanks for stopping by and writing a little something! I love reading your comments! :] xo.
