I haven’t posted in awhile… but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been baking sweets!
I am just extremely pregnant. Which means I have been busy getting ready for baby, being gone from work for a couple months, and spending as much time enjoying my little family and relaxing as I can!
I have been craving funfetti lately, so I whipped up a box mix the other night and topped it with this light and fluffy Cotton Candy Marshmallow frosting. I used this recipe that I made previously for these cupcakes, and just substituted the vanilla for cotton candy flavoring.
It wasn’t too overpowering, but just enough flavor to give the hint and the scent! I died it light blue for cotton candy, and because it was the 4th of July!
When I started up the mixer, my son had no idea what was going on. I realized I only bake and create when he’s gone to bed so he’s probably never heard it going before or seen me making anything! He was very curious so I had to get him a stool so he could see. The fluffy frosting was still white and he thought it was ice cream. (Which is his favorite thing ever – and he’s only had it a handful of times.)
We don’t really let him have sweets ever (he’s only 21 months old and I figure there’s PLENTY of time for that later) so this was a big treat. We let him have a 1/4 of a cupcake with a smear of the frosting on it. He ate it SO FAST we couldn’t get any pictures. So naturally we had to give him another piece. :)
I’d say he approves!
Now when I say extremely pregnant… Today is July 5th and I’m 41 weeks! I had my son 3 days before my due date so this is definitely testing my patience! Send me good labor vibes everyone! :D
