Happy May Day!!

Tomorrow is May 1st - can you believe it?? April was a really busy month for me and my family, so I'm relieved we have made it here, to the other side - to May!

Look at these darling cupcakes, perfect for May Day! The center of the flower can be any candy, or, you can use raspberries and/or blackberries. To make the petals, take a large marshmallow, hold it lengthwise, and with kitchen shears, snip it into 5 pieces. The marshmallow will make your shears gooey, so you will have to wash them a couple of times during the petal making.

I've decided for the non-writerly types that read my blog, I will try to blog once a week about two things I love - cupcakes and cute animals. After all, 2010 is the year of IT'S RAINING CUPCAKES and LITTLE CHIMP'S BIG DAY. So yeah - cupcakes and cute animals - two things that bring a smile to my face and will hopefully bring one to yours as well!

Happy Friday!
