It's Raining Cupcakes

I just started Lisa Schroeder's new book, It's Raining Cupcakes and it's really cute - and I'm talking about more than the cover, which is adorable. This is a middle grade story. I'll let you know more about it when I'm done but suffice it to say, it seems to be a tasty treat.

The story starts with Red Velvet cupcakes and quickly moves to Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes, which inspired me to make a few cupcakes of my own for Easter.

If you'd like to make these same little baskets, just get some pipe cleaners at the store and all you have to do to make the grass for the baskets is mix frosting, with coconut and green food coloring. You can decorate the basket with a couple jelly beans or even malted eggs, maybe even a little peep.

Whatever you do, I hope you all have a sweet weekend ;)

LOVE the look of those cupcakes. Maybe you should go into business locally? For moms who don't have time or inclination to bake but want the real thing???

Yup, we DVR Ace of Cakes around here.

Oh I wouldn't want to do it as a business - that would take the fun out of the food - heck, maybe it is a good idea - might help me diet or . . . turn me into a big ball-sized Mama.

With me it would probably be the latter.
