Rainbow cupcakes, and weekly Menu

I made colored cupcakes as a trial for my daughters 4th Birthday party at the beach....They turned out pretty awesome. I used store bought cake mix, then used my Wilton Gel color to color batter. I seperated the batter then colored it. I was thrilled with the results. I then made an easy chocolate butter cream frosting.


1/2 Cup of softened butter
4 Cups of Confectioners sugar
1 Tsp of Vanilla
1/4 Cup of milk
1 Tsp of Cocoa

Mix all that together, and then put on cupcakes. I used my pipping bag.

Now its on to the weekly menu :-)

We only do three, because Thursday is payday so at night we run errands, Friday-Sunday we either grab whatever, or eat at MIL's. They live 2 minutes down the road....

1. Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes/gravy, green beans and cranberry sauce

2. Cheeseburgers on the grill, potato salad, and some kind of veggie

3. Taco Salad

Have a great day everyone. We are getting my 4 year olds hair trimmed today, and possibly going go kart racing.


  1. Your 3 day menu plan sounds great and the cupcakes look good! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Beautiful cupcakes.

    The menu next three days looks really awesome.
