Colorful Springtime Cupcakes

 Cissy and I made these cupcakes earlier last week, before we had ANOTHER hailstorm and temperatures that dipped down in the 30's again!


 Isn't this teapot the cutest?  My sister sent this to me for my February birthday.  I'm serving some Darjeeling today.  Would you like a cup?

 This Royal Albert teacup that my mom gave me from her stash, looks like a Springtime bouquet, doesn't it?  Some of the gold gilding has worn off, but  that just means how much it has been used and loved.

 My youngest son gave me this darling basket as an Easter gift.  I'm actually using it on my kozy kitchen table.

 Cissy and I had disposable decorating bags that we filled with white cake batter that we colored in Spring colors.  We took turns in adding squirts of batter to our cupcake liners.

 Just look at these happy cupcakes!

 Here's the happy girl with one of her cupcakes that she took home to her family.


Aren't the cupcakes beautiful inside with all those pretty, marbled colors?  Cissy used a toothpick on some of them, to swirl the batter; others, she just left to see how they turned out.  We frosted them with a green buttercream. 

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

  2. What an adorable teapot! Your mom's pretty green teacup is perfect for spring. I'm also a fan of the gold gilding. The colourful cupcakes made me smile. Hope your weather has improved. We had an ice storm over the weekend so I was homebound for 2 days.

  3. How pretty and springlike they are indeed! Love that green frosting- so pretty! We woke up to an inch of snow after having flooding rain on Sunday so our yard is like an ice rink! I'm pretty sure this will be the first spring ever that we had NO tulips or daffodils. They just never bloomed. Crazy and very sad lol!

  4. Those are so cute and I'm quite sure my 8 year old Granddaughter would enjoy doing something like this as well. I'll have to remember this for the next time she's here. Such a beautiful cup and saucer. Happy week ahead!

  6. I love your adorable new teapot along with your pretty spring basket and Cissy's smiling face! The swirled cupcakes are so bright and springy. The weather has been so strange this spring. We've had 40 degree temperature swings with bustery winds, hail, rain and 80 degree days all in one week.

    Love your pretty teacup from your Mom. Those cupcakes look like you both had fun designing them. Look tasty, too.
    You were having quite a few international visitors on your live feed just now.
    Have a great week, Kitty.

  26. You all did a great job on the cupcakes! What a neat idea to swirl the colors like that! Every time we think spring is here, winter shows us who is boss, doesn't it? Your springy looking cupcakes brought spring indoors, at least. :) Praying for you, sweet friend.
