Beach Party Birthday Cupcakes

How adorable are these beach cupcakes? My parents showed up with a big box of these delicious treats to celebrate my birthday.

They are too cute! With fondant fringed beach towels and brown sugar sand, CakeStar did an amazing job creating these cupcakes! They were gluten free and velvety.

Our cats had flowers sent to the restaurant during dinner too. Haha! My husband told me they requested spring tulips.

Spring is right around the corner. I'm eager to fill the house with fresh blooms and do some baking. I am in love with these sand dollar cookies from Sweet Sugar Belle.

And I found a great tutorial for making beach themed cookies by Montreal Confections.

Mmmmm! Lemon sugar cookies, key lime pie and cold refreshing sweet tea will be in my kitchen this summer for sure.

Awaiting Spring

I'm yearning for the sweet smell of hyacinths, colorful lilac and magnolia trees in bloom, and fresh cut flowers in every room of the house. But this cold and snow is unrelenting! Some tulips from the florist and coconut scented candles are helping me shake off the winter blues. A pedi would make a nice pick-me-up too, although I'm laughing at the thought of wearing flip flops. Oh, how my tkees are calling for me!

Fruity salt water taffy makes me think of the beach and summer boardwalks. Yum!
