Soon to be Spring? Cupcakes
Is anyone else as sick and tired of winter as I am? For some reason, winter this year just seems to be sticking around and long overstaying its welcome. There isn't much we can do about the persistent snow and chilly temperatures, and it will still be awhile yet before we have the pleasure of enjoying fresh produce. However, there are still some foods that will brighten up your day and make the winter blahs go away. Instead of embracing the season with warm soups, hearty stews, and comforting casseroles (they have their time, and that time is now over until next year), it is time to bring in some fresh, bright flavors, pretty colors, and cheerful symbols. That's why I quickly decorated these cupcakes recently with fresh spring colors - blue, yellow, and red. I also piped on some simple flowers and bright happy faces. Spring, it is high time you have sprung!
