Pina Colada

CupKate hiatus #2 now over. I hoping to return to a state of normal cupcake production here soon. Summers are slow because there aren't as many gatherings to bring them to!

Here is one I made a couple weeks back, and if I do say so myself I think it is one of of my favorites to date.

When I made these I was just experimenting to see if I could get the taste profile I was looking for, of which I was very pleased turned out dead on. As far as the presentation though, well, as I said I was focused on taste and not taking much time on appearance. I'm looking forward to making them again so I can have the presentation and taste perfected.

Here are my Pina Colada cupcakes, perfect for any summer gathering.

Red, White and Blue

I have been on a cupcake hiatus. However, I couldn't let the Fourth of July be passed up without making some patriotic cupcakes. These are all red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

My attempt at the "firework" cupcakes

I am headed out of town first thing Monday for a little over a week, but am backed up on cupcake sharing, so expect more upon my return. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!
