These cupcakes are seriously so cute I can hardly stand it. Created by two very talented SMCC Culinary Arts students, these little dandies were served at our buffet luncheon today. I am not able to share the recipe at this time because I wanted to get the post up before Sunday.
These cupcakes are medium-sized with cream cheese frosting. Toasted coconut and Jordan almonds decorated with colored royal icing provide all the decoration any cupcake could need. Honestly, on the cute scale these might just rank the best.
I picked up these tulips at Trader Joe's in an attempt to ease an overly chilly, stressy week.
On Wednesday, when I had more things to do before noon than most folks have to accomplish in an entire day, their beauty and the sun hitting them just right forced me to stop in my exhausted, almost undone tracks – a little dose of perspective so to speak. I forced myself to stop momentarily, snap a few photos and relax with a cup of tea. It did not shorten to "to do" list but it did improve my attitude.
May your gardens be green, your bellies be full and your worries be few.
Happy Spring Flavoristas & Happy Easter too!
