Happy Easter Monday!
Whew, what a weekend! We held our annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday and it was so much fun! We had a great turn out and my girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves. If you remember the invitation, I kept the food sweet and simple. On the menu; chocolate dipped marshmallows, red velvet truffles (my daughter called them trump-a-lump-akins), pineapple upside-down angel food cake, peeps, and of course…. CUPCAKES! For this event I was determined to make my own cake icing. I’ve been wanting to learn how to make buttercream icing for a sometime now. Well, Jess from Party Box Design shared her recipe on her blog a little while ago and I decided to try it! It was YUMMY!!!! (Thank you Jess!) I even dyed the icing pink. 🙂 I was so proud of myself. My cupcake decorating skills still need much improvement, however, I’m making baby steps! Here are a few pictures from the egg hunt!
Here I am, Ebony “Stuart” as I was affectionately named on Saturday! It is very rare to get me in a picture these days, but since I have a 6 month old, I still get the wave the “it’s baby weight” flag! 🙂
