Hello there, wishing you all a happy Friday!!
The next 3-4 posts will be full of color, full of fun and full of sweet taste, I promise :-)
This week has been sooo busy, but it was so worth it!
Yesterday was my boyfriends birthday and since he is mexican and because he misses his country so much, I decided to get a little bit of Mexico to our place!
Our dearest friends Kris and Jeff helped me out with everything, we planned to give Diego a piñata for his birthday. He has not been doing that for over 15 years so we thought it would be much fun for him to go “back”.
I just loooved the piñata we got for him, the colors were awesome, so bright and colorful, I immediately knew what kind of sweet treats I’m going to bake for him. And in which colors.
So this week I was busy in my niner kitchen making:
- Cake Bites
- Cake Pops
- aaaand Cupcakes (of course…can’t have a party without them!)
…Everything in the same color scheme as the piñata. Believe me it was a hit.
Not just the taste but to look at all these sweet treats made everyone hungry and so happy. You just have to smile when you see things like that. Not just when you’re a child ;-)
This is the piñata by the way:
