Good evening blogging friends.
This evening I want to share a few touches of pink with you.
Somehow pink is a happy color to me, perhaps it is because it always reminds me of my mother.
I wanted to share this picture of my daughter's front porch. She lives in small town America, where neighbors know each other's names and quickly become friends. Makes me want to grab a cup of coffee and sit on her rocking chair for some fun conversation.
Speaking of her neighborhood, tomorrow her two daughters(my granddaughters), are having a party for all the girls in the eldest's class and the younger's neighborhood friends, after school. I told my daughter that I would make some cupcakes for the fun occasion. I found these cute plastic cups at The Dollar Tree at five for a dollar. Personally, I think they would be perfect for an adult dinner party too. Wouldn't it look good to have a tray of these for any dessert occasion?
I made white icing and added some dry lemonade powder to make it pink and give it a taste of lemonade. I also found two boxes of Mrs. Field's confetti cupcake mix at same dollar store. Twenty four cupcakes for $ 2.00, plus the eggs and oil(and the teaspoon of vanilla that I always add to cake mixes). I baked the cupcakes as instructed, let them cool, and removed them from the pan. I placed one in each of the above pretty plastic containers.
I put the icing in a clear ziplock bag, cut the one tip off and swirled the lemonade icing on each cupcake. I added a plastic spoon, a candy cherry and some sprinkles. It looks like little dishes of ice cream, but it is a cupcake and does not need to be in the freezer.
A fun and unique way to serve cupcakes at a party for young girls. I do hope my granddaughters like serving these to their friends. I have a feeling there will be lots of pink at their party.
I close with this adorable "pink sweetheart". I cannot believe she is old enough now to have her friends home from school, for a party.
I clearly remember the day I took this picture.
How did it happen so quickly?
I am sure you ask yourself the same question many times.
Thank you so much for stopping by this evening.
