It’s a “Shower” baby shower!
My friend Heather made her Ahhh-mazing sugar cookies, i may or may not have made myself a little sick by eating too many of them 😉 She cut them out in umbrella’s and rain drops! how cute! She uses THIS recipe
I didn’t snap a picture but i made a really tasty blueberry lemonade. Here is the recipe:
mix all the ingredients together in a large container/drink canister
4 cups blueberry simple syrup
2 cups lemon juice, from fresh lemons
16 cups of water
4 or more cups of ice
Blueberry Simple Syrup
3 cups blueberries
3 cups water
3 cups sugar
Place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring to make sure the sugar dissolved. Strain the solution with a fine sieve and discard solids. Let cool and then mix with lemonade ingredients.
I made my favorite white cupcake recipe and blueberry buttercream frosting. I was a little disappointed with the icing. The blueberry simple syrup i made to mix into the frosting didn’t have enough flavor that you could tell the icing was blueberry. I had made the same recipe with raspberries and it was very flavorful, but for some reason the blueberries weren’t. The icing wasn’t bad it just tasted like normal buttercream. regardless here is my favorite cupcake recipe:
1 (18.25 ounce) box white cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups water
2 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
4 large egg whites
1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Place cupcake liners in cupcake pans (you’ll
need approx. 36).
2. In a large bowl, whisk together cake mix, flour, sugar and salt.
Add remaining ingredients and beat with hand mixer for 2 minutes, or
until well blended.
3. Use ice cream scoop to fill prepared cupcake tins- fill about 3/4
full. Bake about 18 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center
comes out clean.
We had such a good turnout these ladies are the ones who stayed right to the end, probably only about 1/2 of all who came.
My great friend Katie & me.
