Hydrangea Cupcakes for May Day or Mother's Day!

I was searching for a cute May Day treat and I came across these adorable Hydrangea Cupcakes!  They would be really cute for a Mother's Day dinner / lunch dessert too.  I love hydrangeas, especially the light blue and purple color!  I have three big hydrangea plants in my garden. They are so pretty.  I have several Wilton cake tips and I'm pretty sure I have the one used for these cupcakes.  I'm going to give it a try!  My kids love decorating cookies and cupcakes.  It's fun for them to take part in baking / decorating even if the end result doesn't always look exactly as we've envisioned.  Here is another link with a Duncan Hines hydrangea cupcake recipe.

Fun April Fools Day Prank!

Since it's April 1st, I wanted to pull a fun prank on my family today.  My kids did a great job pranking me so I thought about what to do all day.  Inspiration finally hit a couple of hours before dinner.  I decided to make muffin tin meat loafs look like cupcakes.  For the frosting, I made mashed potatoes and dyed them blue.  It was a fun surprise.   My husband thought it was pretty awesome.  The kids thought it was funny but they were a little disappointed that we were not having real cupcakes.   They were really happy to find out that I also made real (not a prank) chocolate chip muffins for dessert .  They had to eat their cupcake before they could get a muffin though. :)
