These are super easy and adorable cupcakes to make for your Mom on Mother’s day!
I have the best Mom!
I’m sure you think you all do, but, sorry, mine takes that title! If you have been a frequent viewer of my videos on YouTube, you will have “met” my mom before. She is such a great sport to accompany me in my videos.
When you are buying a present for the best mom in the world, the magnitude of choosing the perfect present can be very daunting, so instead of a present this year, I’m MAKING her a present. Nothing says “love” like a homemade gift. Maybe I should add a construction paper card to go with the “present”. Oh dear. Let’s just hope she still loves me after Mother’s Day this year.
Coming right around the corner is the day to celebrate the most important person in the world . . . our MOM’S!! My mom is a pretty amazing lady, and I have big things planned for her Since she got her new iPad (so jealous) I think she might actually keep tabs on me, and read my blog, so I better not let anything out! She has Facebook now too. So with the times my mom is!!
It is FINALLY spring. It has been a lllllooooooonnnnngggggg, cold, grey winter/ “spring” ’round these parts this year (was that country enough for y’all?).
It’s almost the May long weekend and we are finally getting sun. I finally had to cut the lawn. I finally had to weed out the dandelions (which took Paul and I two hours each! . . . WITH a handy dandy dandelion digger-upper thingy). Some of you may think that weeding and mowing the lawn is not something that one would be looking forward to, but I totally was! Nuts.
But, I had my reasons for this . . . two reasons . . .
One: having to weed and mow a lawn means I have a lawn! WHOOT! I’m so happy where I’m living now. A real house! Who would have thought
Two: If the grass and dandelions are growing (weeds included) it means that the sun is shining and bringing everything back to life . . . from the doldrums of winter. S.A.D. anyone? Vitamin D is my best friend . . . best natural head meds you can find!
THREE (I said I had two reasons, oh well): My garden is growing! Rhubard is up, raspberry stalks are sprouting, and the seeds are in the dirt. Yay! I planted some stuff that I plan to use in my cupcakes, and I will be able to say I really made them! Like, really!
This was my Mother’s Day Spring Bouquet. Happy belated Mother’s day to all the fabulous Mother’s out there . . . especially to my own!
These next ones were an order for Mother’s Day cupcakes. I had free rein to try whatever I wanted, so I got out my tools and set to work!
I love the orange rosette on these ones!
Happy spring everyone . . . knock on wood . . . fingers crossed . . . salt over shoulder . . . and all other superstitions that could work in our favour and keep the sun out!
