These are a delightful and delicious treat for a baby shower. The cupcakes are red velvet, Key Lime and strawberry. I made the fins by melting vanilla wafers and putting it into a mermaid fin mold. I used edible color spray and glitter to add additional colors.
Although cake pops and cake balls are cute and delicious they may not seem to be much fun to make to some people. I enjoy making them but I must admit they a lot of work to make. I have included a couple pictures of the steps.
I am still baking with strawberries. This cookie recipe was fairly easy. I used a cookie cutter after the were baked to make them into neat circles. I then added cookie icing to add a bit of cuteness to them.
A friend told me she had some extra strawberries and asked if I would like some. Wow, was all I could say when my husband sent me a picture of what she left for me. My husband and I cleaned and froze most of them and put some aside for various recipes. I treated my husband to a strawberry daiquiri after he helped me clean and package the ones I froze.
I had the pleasure of decorating strawberry and red velvet cupcakes for a high school graduation party. Trying to keep the school colors with pink colored strawberry cupcakes was a challenge but the end results look nice. I used blue cupcake liners to bake the cupcakes. After frosting them , I used blue and yellow food color spray on the cupcakes then topped them with the school logo picks I made using address labels and toothpicks.
