I used this recipe for my daughter's spring break party... I had a blast making these cupcakes with my girls. All of their friends loved them as well as the school staff. Their just simply beautiful, fun to make and so yummy to eat... =0)
Simply amazing to welcome spring!, but I'm not a big fan of pineapples.
Too cute to eat? You won’t be able to resist your first delicious bite. If decorating cupcakes isn’t your thing, focus on fresh, light flavors like lemon, pineapple and coconut.
