Do you ever have a project that you are faithfully working on and you really need to finish...and you have a major deadline....and you get a little side-tracked?

And you feel like baking instead of sewing?

And so you make Pink Lemonade Cupcakes?

And you set them out on your pink depression glass plate because they match so well?

And you fall in love with the swirly pink frosting with little bits of lemon zest and sugar sprinkles on top?

And you watch your daughter feed one to your grandaughter?

And she doesn't know if she likes it?

And then decides that she does?

And she wants more?

And she gets a pink frosting beard (and mustache)?

Well I do.
And that's what I did this morning.
Yummy recipe HERE.

I love your blog. If this is an indication of your creativity, you are truly blessed.
First, you daughter feeding your grandaughter is delightful. My first niece is 7 years younger than I, so I was the one doing the feeding, great memories.
Second, tell me again why we aren't neighbors so I can get a care package?? I'd gladly make something for you to get some!

It looks like a distraction worth taking! I'm thinking I might need to make some of these this weekend. Thanks for the link.

Also, thanks for your sweet comment on the Bakeshop. I'm glad you like it. *smiles*

OK Yum. That's all I have to say. Oh, and your granddaughters are so cute. Thanks for the link. I will definitely need to try those one of these days!

The frosting beard is just too precious! Isn't being a grandma the BEST? Moments like cupcakes are too important to let pass by. I think you made the wise choice for the day.

Such a darling post, Lori. The pictures of your little girl and granddaughter are priceless. You should open a cupcake shoppe! Heavens to betsy, I have never made any icing that looks like that so swirly and gorgeous. Do you pipe it out of something? Good job - and fun post. Carol

Nothing in the world could be better than being distracted by something so wonderful as those Pink Lemonade Cupcakes and that DARLING little Sophie Bell. Your quilting will always be waiting for you. Just think... you are quilting a memory!

Cute cute cute! Pat Sloan would love those cupcakes! She posts pictures of cupcakes on her Blog all the time. Pink Lemonade ones sound so refreshing... A Grandma has to take time out for grandchildren. Times flies way too fast. Thanks.
