Happy Pioneer Day

Happy 24th of July to you all! We had a festive little block party last night including a pot-luck treat table. This was my contribution. I can't take credit for the firework-esque frosting. Click here for my inspiration (and the instructions).

In the creation of these cupcakes, however, I did stumble across what might possibly be the most delicious store-bought frosting. EVER. It's Betty Crocker Whipped Vanilla Frosting. I'm not usually a big fan of those tubs of frosting that don't seem to quite cover a double layer cake. This stuff is tasty though, and does the job for a batch of need-them-in-an-hour cupcakes. It has this subtle marshmallow cream flavor to it. I wonder how it would be glopped on a graham cracker....

I love the look of these cupcakes and who could resist at least two.
