Lovelies for Lucy

The inspiration...sweet Lucy turned one and to celebrate her parents had a rainbow inspired party. They hid these cuties all around the park and had the kids hunt for them. They gave me the great honor of making the cupcakes for the festivities.  We decided it would be fun to try and create something similar to the suckers.

 Here they are...
Chocolate cupcakes with dulce de leche buttercream frosting.

How to:
Cook cupcakes as usual, with a sharp knife, cut a small slit through the cupcake liner (cupcakes can be frozen to make this easier), then insert popsicle stick. I chose multicolored ones with colorful ribbons to match the theme, then frost!
The secret to the swirls:  paint lines inside the piping bag using a small paintbrush with gel icing colors before adding frosting.

Had to add Lucy's pinata...can't get much cuter than a cupcake!
