Cupcakes for Tea

Welcome friends for tea this week.  Since taking the cupcake decorating course, I've been practicing and you know, the best place to find recipes is on other blogs.
I was so excited when I found the yummiest peanut butter recipe with peanut butter frosting at Mennonite Girls Can Cook.  These were made for Mother's Day and were a big hit.
Recipe here
My next discovery was the amazing hydrangea cupcakes at Glorious Treats.  I used a simple chocolate cake recipe and two colours of icing as illustrated.  The frosting wasn't quite thick enough and it was hot in the kitchen the day I was icing these so my flowers are drooping.
Recipe here
The hydrangea cupcakes were for the bake sale at our garden club plant sale.
I did manage to save one for my tea out on the deck overlooking the pond.
I'm linking with these special ladies:
Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday
Ruth at Antiques and Teacups fro Tuesday Cuppa Tea
Kathy at A Delightsome Life for A Return to Loveliness (celebrating her 100th post of this meme)
Bernideen at her Tea Time Blog for Tea in the Garden
Please join my hosts and their guests for tea.

  29. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Bunny Cottage.' These cupcakes look so yummy. I saw your lavender post and side bar, and I was hooked. Purple is my favorite color. Your blog is so lovely, and you have many charming pictures on here. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with simplicity, and it is very cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

  31. Hi Judith,
    you made my mouth watering with those yummy cupcakes. When I see the results I would love to attend this course, too. The Hydrangea cupcakes are amazing. Like real tiny flowers. And I am sure both have been superyummy. I think its a must that you had one for yourself for tea. Thank you for sharing this cute cupcakes (one in lavender!) and for your sweet comment.
    Best greetings, Johanna
