It’s almost time for Cinco De Mayo! I’m not sure if everyone does a big thing for Cinco but in Arizona we certainly do. Any excuse to eat more Mexican food is fine with me! I always have a Mexican blanket in my car so I am basically ready for a fiesta at all times. I wanted to do a little Arizona spin on CInco De Mayo. I made these fun little cactus cupcakes that would be perfect for a fiesta with kids. I can always find a way to make cupcakes a part of any occasion. I also made them wear candy sombreros You could just put the “sombreros” on the cupcakes without the cactus or just on a plate with no baking required. The cacti(for some reason I dislike the word cacti I am I the only one?) just make me smile especially with the silly faces!

Today I am combining two of my favorite things cupcakes and flowers! That is the way to my heart, cupcakes and flowers. If I am mad at someone I will immediately forget if they bring me cupcakes or flowers(preferably both). I love springtime with all of the flowers blooming. I keep seeing these beautiful yellow flowers everywhere. That is probably why I am loving yellow lately! This is such a fun way to present cupcakes for a spring party or for Mother’s Day. If your mom is anything like me then she would love these flower wreath cupcakes. You could also make a bouquet but I thought a wreath would be fun.
I just love this time of year. March is probably my favorite month because the weather is just amazing in Arizona. I have to soak it in before the heat comes. We have been decorating with flowers and getting ready for Easter. Last Easter I made these cute baby chick mini cupcakes! I made mini cupcakes to fit in the Easter eggs and because mini chick cupcakes are just too cute! I wanted something easy to make and put out during the Easter festivities.
For these cute baby chick mini cupcakes you need:
I know everyone this time of year makes cookies. I love cookies as much as the next gal but cupcakes are just my thing. I like to make cupcakes, marshmallow pops and cake pops. They are just so cute! Since I’ve had Santa on the brain but didn’t have time to figure out how to make Santas I decided to make Santa bags and presents. These would be fun to leave out for Santa, for Christmas Eve or on Christmas when you are opening up presents. Both are really easy to make! For the cupcakes all you will need are cupcakes, frosting(any color you want), sugar(not needed) and pull n peel Twizzlers.
Thanksgiving is almost here. It is a great time to get together with family and do what’s really important, eat. Also give thanks for the amazing people and blessings in our lives! I always am so so full after eating the giant meal that I don’t know how I can eat a single bite more! Then I see the desserts and somehow manage to eat even more. It’s a tough job but somebody has to do it. I think there is a separate part of the stomach just for dessert. That’s my logic and I’m sticking to it! Pies are traditionally what people serve for Thanksgiving. I like pies but they are very time consuming to make. Not everyone likes pie and it is good to have a few options for your Thanksgiving guests. Here are some easy cute cupcake ideas great for fall and Thanksgiving! First is the turkey cupcake gobble, gobble :).
Halloween is probably my all-time favorite holiday. You get to dress up in fun costumes and people give you candy, how bad can that be? I think it is the little kid in me (or sugar addict) that loves this holiday so much. One of the best things about being a mom is being able to relive your childhood and act like a kid again. Sadly people would think it was weird if a 30 year old woman dressed up and went trick or treating without a kid. To get ready for Halloween I made some easy Halloween desserts with my daughter. These are all easy enough for kids to help out with, especially the cupcakes.
