I’ve been hopelessly trying to get this entry posted. This time, I’ll get it done! Summer is keeping me busy, I’m telling yah!
My daughter’s class had a Hawaiian sort of thing going for the last week of school. School ended last June 3, in case you’re wondering. On their year end party, the class had a luau. The kids came to school in board shorts, floral dresses, sunglasses and flipflops. They all had leis and were just too cute! I brought some cupcakes, of course! I had to somehow make up for the store-bought cupcakes I brought to school a few days before the year-end party. I have since forgiven myself…I think. :D
For the girls, I topped the cupcakes with little flowers, a starfish, an umbrella and a little brown sugar (for sand effect).
The umbrellas were really a last minute addition. I requested hubby to buy them for me at Party City. I’m glad I added the umbrellas. I think they gave the cupcakes a more summer-y feel. Plus, the kids loved them!
For the boys, I made fondant surfboards, which, unfortunately, did not dry/harden quickly enough. That’s what I get for waiting until the morning of the party to make them! :P
Nevertheless, the kids (boys and girls alike!) loved them. They all thanked me for the cupcakes, which they thought were awesome. I really love those kids! They always tell the truth! Haha! :D
I’ve been cooking and baking again these last couple of days, and with renewed vigor, too! :) I’m almost tempted to say that I’m inspired! Well, I am! :)
Keep cool, y’all! Mabuhay!
