Happy Labor Day!

Vanilla cupcakes with homemade lemon buttercream frosting. Yum.
I had leftover lemons from our lemonade stand so I thought I'd give this frosting a try.

What's not to love about vanilla cupcakes with homemade lemon buttercream frosting? Apparently, homemade lemon buttercream frosting. My sweet husband of eight years who typically will eat just about anything...isn't that wild about lemons... who knew? Fortunately, they did not go to waste. Myself and my three children are fans. So don't even think about coming over. They are all gone.

And there were more than nine...I'm just sayin'.

yum! And they look so pretty, too! How did you get the icing so perfect? (I need tips for Ollie's b-day part coming up. You are invited, btw) :)

I used a piping bag for the icing... you can borrow all my stuff. I'm not expert, but have a learned (and acquired) just a few things since having kids/birthdays.

Also, I just learned on TV that you put a blob of icing on the top/middle and then squeeze the icing on in a circle pattern. That probably makes no sense, but what it does is add more volume so it has that cone shape of icing.

I'll show ya -
