An Open House

A made cupcakes for an open house today. It was such a perfect idea to have mini cupcakes at an open house...people could just walk by and grab one without making a mess or needing a plate.

Coconut Lime Cupcakes

I made cupcakes for a party yesterday. The theme was pink, green and white and they wanted coconut lime cupcakes. So I just tinted the frosting to fit the theme. They turned out perfect! The one thing I noticed at the party though is that a bunch of people wouldn't eat the cupcakes because they don't like coconut. Well honestly, I don't like coconut either but I love these cupcakes. They don't really have a coconut taste to them. To me they taste like summer in a cupcake. So from one picky eater to another...even if it sounds weird...just try a bite. You never could be your new favorite cupcake!

Birthday Flower Cupcakes

Today was my daughter's 4th birthday and she wanted flower cupcakes. I made her chocolate cupcakes...for the dirt, green colored vanilla frosting for the grass and then I used marshmallows for the flowers. They turned out really cute and the marshmallows added a nice flavor to the cupcakes. For an added touch I used Lemon Head candies to make the center of the flower.

 I think these would be perfect for a baby shower too. For that I would change it to a white cake, white frosting and then pastel flower petals. Pink, blue, green or yellow or any combination.
