A Taste of the Tropics


I have been in withdrawal from baking this summer! These tropical cupcakes I made earlier this year were perfect for the beach.




I found these pretty fruit candies at TJ Maxx a few months ago. You can pick your own here.



I hope one day soon my house will be filled with the scent of freshly baked cupcakes cooling on the counter. I'm ready to make some memories that smell like buttercream icing!

I'm ready for you to bake again, too, Melissa. How about something pink and pretty with flowers? In the mean time, those cupcakes are wonderful. Thanks for the tip on the candies.

Hope you are feeling better. I smiled when I saw this post come through today!

XO,

Sheila :-)

You always have the most beautiful pictures posted on your blog. Not to mention the most adorable children. How are your friends at Front Porch Ministry? Did they manage to stay dry from the terrible flooding in Nashville. I had the privledge of contacting them through a prior post of yours. Extroadinary couple and such a blessing to many.
