Happy Saturday morning 🙂 I have a full post in my head for my somewhat unusual week… but it hasn’t made it to my fingertips yet. In the meantime, after posting these Festive Bright Cupcakes yesterday on Facebook & Instagram and seeing how much everyone loved them, I thought I’d share a quick post tonight about them!
It’s funny that they got so much attention because I put very little thought into them. My customer was very non-specific – she wanted “bright, festive cupcakes” with different colored frosting.
I asked Sarah to grab me a few bright colors out of the bin and she brought me pink, green and yellow. Perfect.
My hand has been really hurting a lot lately. My sweet Sarah helped some more by getting out 3 bowls and starting to mix in the color. Unfortunately, she didn’t quite mix enough pink. But when I reached for the pink to make more, I looked again at the cupcakes and thought they could use one more color.
So we did purple!

Instead of using up another disposable bag, I put it straight into the pink bag and got this pretty, pretty pink edged look on several of the purple cupcakes! I liked that look so much that I repeated with some yellow in the green bag to get a few like this:

So, I made 3 dozen of these pretty bright cupcakes… then 3 dozen chocolate on chocolate to go with them…
I added some pastel confetti to them to brighten them up and make them as happy as the others 😉
And that was that! I got 6 dozen cupcakes out the door and then I was able to ice my hand and rest for the rest of the day! I hope you’re all planning to have a fantastic weekend!
