Sierra had her first girl birthday party today. I will post more on that later, but first, I want to mention how easy it was to make pink frosting.
I used my own buttercream frosting recipe and also made beet juice to tint the frosting pink.
These instructions for beet juice were pretty easy: http://www.livestrong.com/article/511152-how-to-dye-frosting-using-beets/
I put the leftover beet juice in a freezer zip-close bag and am freezing it for later use.
The only downside is that I doubt Sean will want pink cupcakes for his birthday next month.
The finished cupcakes.
We had white and chocolate cupcakes. The most surprising question from one of the girls, a best friend of Sierra’s since preschool, was “Where do I put my frosting?” What???? I’m used to kids who eat the frosting and leave the cake.
Fortunately, I had some that I did not have time to decorate so I traded her for a plain one. Another girl who was here a little longer than the others got a second cupcake and wanted it without frosting also.
