Colourful Destinations and Summery Cupcakes

As you know, if you have joined me here before, I am a big fan of colour. I saw an article on MSN the other day with these gorgeous photos of colourful destinations. I would love to visit each and every one of them!

Punda, Willemstad, Curacao

Miami Beach, Miami

Manarola, Italy

La Boca, Buenos Aires

I would especially love to visit Curacao. A friend of mine said it was one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Sounds heavenly...

Oh and it's summer! Today! And our weather here sure is living up to the first day of summer. I sat in the warm sunshine with my baby girl today (ok, she is a preschool graduate, not my baby anymore). I can't wait until my twin girls are done school too and we can all hang out in the summer sunshine.

For my baby's 'graduation' I decided to make these cute summery cupcakes. The girls LOVED them. I only decorated enough for each of us to have one but that turned out to be a great thing because the girls were dying to decorate a bunch of their own. They did a great job! **sorry the photo quality isn't great**
I made the cupcakes themselves rainbow colours, just by dividing up the batter and adding food colouring. I used vanilla pudding and cool whip for a less sweet icing. Be sure to add the 'umbrellas' just before eating otherwise they will soften and fall over. : P

Welcome, Summer, I have been waiting for you. ♥
