Preschool Picnic

Today was Hannah's preschool picnic. I signed up to bring a dessert. I like to make desserts because it gives me a good opportunity to make some yummy treats. Kevin and I LOVE yellow cake batter too. I made yellow cake cup cakes. Then I made a buttercream frosting. After dividing the frosting I put a little cocoa in one to make a really light brown. I crushed gram crackers and covered the frosting. I used orange to make the start. You see... they are beach cupcakes. Don't they look like starfish in the sand?

Birthday season is coming up in my family... stay tuned for more decorated cakes!

Those are too cute! By the way I absolutely LOVE the blankets that you made for Koa! They are adorable... I was going to see if you could help me make a cover for Koas swing... it's Kailes old one and it's pink and I want to get some cute fabric and cover it but I have NO idea what I am doing?! Does it sound like something you might be able to help with?! haha

Wow!
Can I have one please. They sound and look so yummy.
I can't come over to your house until we get back from NC, I would like to look decent in a bathing suite...
You always have such good treats and I, unfortunately, have zero will power!
