Rosy Cupcakes for a Wedding Shower

Carol and I co-hosted a wedding shower Sunday. She made these gorgeous cupcakes. I watched her frost them and each took only a few seconds with a large star tip. Strawberry, lemon cream cheese, and chocolate with white frosting.

We borrowed a cupcake stand and I found the perfect topper in my thrifty treasures--this porcelain "cake layer" bedecked with a pair of birds. Of course, I often pull out pairs of thrifty birds to adorn the table, too.

Punch victory this time: cranberry-raspberry juice frozen for the ice ring, and the bowl filled with pink lemonade. Beautiful and so good! Not too sweet. Garnish with lime and mint for best-everness.

I've been seeing that technique a lot lately on cakes - very pretty.

Lemon creme cheese?? Gosh, this is the second delicious post I have read this morning...and thick frosting to boot.

By the way, I made your Chicken and Gravy recipe again....fourth time I think. My husband loves that recipe, and will have some again for his lunch. A very happy man indeed.
blessings, jill
