Watching our grandson one afternoon I heard a noise in the kitchen. When I peeked within, the grandson where biting off the heads of the cupcakes and licking the icing off the other ones. When they looked up to see me, they quickly tossed the banana cupcakes in to the cover lid of the cake holder. There eyes where big and cupcake icing covered their faces. The oldest grandson Wyatt jumped down from the bar and said "Walker did it."  I could not stop laughing at these boys.  The cupcakes have their approval on them that is for sure.  I just wished I got a picture of them.
