sweet treat of the week and piratical minigrams

 

Thank you for joining me on my new internet home for a sweet treat on Friday! This week I made cupcakes in honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day. What a fun holiday. It’s a little challenging the first time, but once you’ve dressed up with a vintage scarf, leather vest, and lots of black eyeliner a few years in a row you get the hang of it. I do wonder what makeup remover Johnny Depp used for his pirate roles, I had a difficult time getting all of mine off.

Arghhhh! Did you know the right outfit and growl earns a free box of Krispy Kremes on Talk Like a Pirate Day?

These pirate ship cupcakes were fun to make and to eat. The mix was organic and the icing not so much- cotton candy by Duncan Hines Frosting Creations.  Hope your weekend is as fun as a day eating blue cupcakes and saying “yo, ho-ho.”

Like my parrot? I stole it from one of my boys. And I guess it’s really more of a toucan…alas.
