“My friend Kathy grew up on a farm, so I thought a ‘Farmer in the Dell‘ theme would be perfect for her baby shower,“ writes field editor Colleen Palmer of Epping, New Hampshire. Colleen’s colorful pig and chick cupcakes are adorable perched next to this bright red cupcake barn. And don’t forget the sun!
The breezy treat we've featured here is no pie in the sky—but it is a sensationally tasty cake! The CT home economists had a high old time making it, thanks to Mildred's recipes and the playful crafts shared by Paula Del Favero. Our kitchen staff started by baking Mildred's delectable dessert that's full of yummy banana flavor. To top the confection off, they tinted and shaped her creamy frosting to resemble puffy clouds and Paula's bright kites. Using everyday ingredients, you can raise this sweet idea, too. Your birthday guests will be on cloud nine!
