Laid Back Labor Day

This labor day we are taking a step back from the party planning and letting the "boys" take over. 

This is what we eat, breath, and sleep - so giving up the control made us a little bit nervous, but then we realized this is a good thing. We don't have to lift a finger or worry about anything; all we need to do is kick back and relax. 

The only thing we might offer are these adorable Beach Party Cupcakes.



Beach Party Cupcakes

Ingredients
  • 1 recipe favorite cupcake recipe 
  • 1 recipe favorite cupcake frosting
  • Blue decorating tint
  • Blue decorating sugar
  • Honey Teddy Grahams
  • Finely Crushed Graham Crackers or Teddy Grahams
  • Lifesaver Gummies (innertubes)
  • Fruit-by-the-Foot Fruit Rollups (rafts and towels)
  • Airheads Xtreme Belts (rafts, towels and cut up by color for pool noodles)

Directions
  • Bake cupcakes as directed, cool completely
  • Make frosting as directed
  • Mix blue decorating tint to get desired shade of blue for water
  • Spread each cupcake top with desired amount of frosting (I typically don’t like a lot of frosting but I did make these with a little more so the little dudes had something to stick to!)
  • Use teddy grahams and candies as fun decorations – be creative
  • Dip a few iced cupcakes in crushed grahams to look like sand (and a few half in the grahams for a sand and sea look!)
