Hi Sweets! I'm sorry it's been a little while since my last post! I went on an awesome vacation up to Bar Harbor, Maine and this week I'm starting a brand new job! I have a cute 2-year old's birthday cake and cupcakes to blog about, as well as some Mini Margarita Cupcakes that everyone should definitely try this summer. I hope to start catching up later this week or early next. I'll be back- promise!

One of my favorite things about this summer so far are the kids birthday parties that my hubby and I get to go to. Last weekend we had a blast at Lex's 3rd birthday party. The theme was "Cars," his favorite movie. I can't take credit for any of these treats, they were all baked and decorated by our friend Monica, but the cake and cupcakes were so cute, I have to share!
Monica bought a special Cars cake pan and did the decorating herself - red icing is hard to make, but even though it looks a little pink, Lex loved his cake.
The cupcakes were great- kid-friendly chocolate and vanilla were a huge hit. The kids (and big kids like my hubs) were loving the cupcakes with little cars on top.
After the birthday party we headed to a friend's cocktail party. When my father-in-law walked in, he presented the ultimate treat plate....
Bruins cookies!!!! The Stanley Cup celebration is going to continue all summer long. GO BRUINS!!!
