Happy Father's Day!
For Father's Day I went with a grill theme and since I'm always picking up party supplies on sale, thinking, "I know I'll use this for something", I already had everything you see on hand.
Grilling makes me think of red checks pattern and these napkins were in my stash. I'm always picking up fun napkins on sale. They never go bad and you always need napkins.
BBQ's and Solo cups, they just go together. I added a POP of colour with yellow and white striped straws from Sweets & Treats Boutique.
Homemade BBQ sauce to go. Be sure to come back to the blog on Wednesday for the recipe.
You just can't have a BBQ without ant's trying to sneak away with your treats.
Triple Berry cupcakes using the recipe from The Cupcake Diaries. I added more berries to the mix then what the recipe called for. mmm berries. The book suggests to top the cupcakes with the buttercream recipe. I tried to make the buttercream frosting but it never got light and fluffy. It also tasted too much like confectioners sugar to me so I used a canned frosting that I had on hand. To the canned frosting I added some strawberry extract.
The cupcakes were good. They're not a sweet cupcake. Very mild taste to the cake because the berries are the star of these cupcakes. If I make these again I think I'll try a cream cheese frosting. Or maybe add some coconut to the cake mix.
