Unicorn Frosting

If you saw our IG live yesterday, you may be wondering about that colorful unicorn hair we topped our cupcakes with. We watched a few tutorials on piping multi-colored swirls, and this is how we did it. Prep:┬áSet aside a large 18″ piping bag and 1M Wilton star tip from your piping kit. You’ll also need to have your cupcakes wrapped and ready near your piping station. One long piece of clear celophane, about 2 feet long, neatly placed on your counter top near your piping station.

Gazpacho

Now that tomato season is here, it’s time to share some of our favorite recipes to use up all of these lovely red + yellow friends. Yesterday we canned 7 quarts of tomato chunks (technically they are called stewed tomatoes) and today we’re working on tomato juice. There is no better smell than opening up a fresh jar of tomatoes from the garden on February 26th – right in the middle of “is winter almost over, I may actually need Xanax to get me though the next 3 months of darkness in the mid-west” season. The kids love canning tomatoes and it teaches them some good lessons about food, and…
