pink lemonade cupcakes & a nora fleming freebie

madison's love language is baking.
 cupcakes are her specialty.
often times at night before she turns in,
she'll be downstairs whipping up a couple dozen to celebrate a friend's
birthday at school the next day.

on this particular day
one of her girlfriends was celebrating with a pool party.
madi added a packet of kool aid pink lemonade
to a regular yellow cake mix for the cupcake batter.
she then made a homemade buttercream frosting
& added 2tsp from a second packet of koolaid so the frosting would also have a
light lemonade taste.

she then cut little straws & added umbrellas to create little
poolside treats!
they were delicious!

 the platter & little blue crab mini pictured above
are from the Nora Fleming line.
we have loved our serving pieces
& the little mini's are a great, inexpensive way to add a little fun to your table
or bunco munchies, or after tennis match spread, or just to sit poolside.

our friends at Carol & Company.
 have a special offer for you.
if you purchase the keepsake box
(which will keep 9 mini's all safe and sound)
you will receive the blue crab mini for FREE.

special will run until midnight sunday, june 17.
no code necessary

Those cupcakes are so cute. Love to make cute little cupcakesfor special occasions.

Madison has to check out the Cake Doctor books. The original one has the best recipe for Snickerdoodle Cake-it makes great cupcakes too.

Love your pics of the NF items too! The blue crab is perfect for the summer.

I need one of those cupcakes..I'm two days in to no sweet tea, and I'm as ill as a pill. for real. My family just left to go swimming and I wasn't invited. :)

Is that a Red Bar shirt she's wearing? LOVE that place. :)

I read this post yesterday morning and then went into my class of 6th graders and one student had made the EXACT same cupcakes for the class! I am definitely putting these on the menu for the summer.
I left you a really long post on the makeup post, only to find out it didn't post (it was my computer!) I wanted to tell you you should try Garnier's BB cream which you get at the local drug store. It is a tinted moisturizer and normally I am a foundation girl, but I really like it.
