Fairy Party Supplies {Just Add Fairy Dust!}

I think every little girl likely imagines fairies live in the garden among the flowers.  I know I pretended they did when I was a child. Okay… I admit it. I have a fairy garden in an ornate flower pot in my garden each summer to this day. {grin} My fairy birthday party supplies collection is all about that magical and whimsy woodland fairy.

St. Patrick’s Day: Mini Key Lime Pie Leprechaun Doughnut Recipe

Are you thinking green for St. Patrick’s Day yet? Well you really should try these mini Key Lime Pie Doughnuts from my lovely contributor Deanna of Mirabelle Creations!

Key Lime Pie Leprechaun Doughnuts for St. Patrick's Day | Mirabelle Creations for TheCelebrationShoppe.com

In Deanna’s words: My son is a little fascinated with leprechauns this March.  His fascination might be because they are quite mischievous, just like him!  Between a leprechaun’s mischievous nature, their pots of gold, and their mini stature, what’s not to love?

For St. Patrick’s Day, there are so many fun Leprechauns ideas for kids.  My little guy wanted to make a Leprechaun Trap this year.  Some other fun ideas include: green milk left by a leprechaun, the leprechaun leaving little gold coins around the house for the kids, and the leprechaun turning the toilet water green. 

Key Lime Pie Leprechaun Doughnuts for St. Patrick's Day | Mirabelle Creations for TheCelebrationShoppe.com

For a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast this year, I plan to leave my son some of these Leprechaun Lime Doughnuts (which are Mini Key Lime Pie Doughnuts).  They are healthy treat alternative to a fried doughnut.  Also, they are Leprechaun size and incorporate green without having to use green dye!

Mini Key Lime Pie Doughnuts (adapted from A Zesty Bite)

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons key lime or lime juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Zest of two small limes
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 graham cracker, crushed

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray the cavity of a mini doughnut pan with cooking spray.
  2. Add key lime juice to milk.  Let sit for about 5 minutes, so milk sours.  In a small bowl, mix together egg, vanilla, and butter.  Add soured milk to ingredients.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and zest of one lime.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients until completely combined.  Add batter to a piping bag.  Fill the doughnut cavities approximately 2/3 full by piping batter into cavities.
  4. Bake approximately 8 minutes or until doughnuts are golden brown.   Cool for about 1 minute, then remove from pan.  Let doughnuts cool.
  5. For the glaze: Stir together 1 tablespoon milk and powdered sugar.  Add a little more milk until you achieve the desired consistency.  Dip top half of doughnuts into glaze.  Sprinkle remaining lime zest and graham crackers crumbs on top of glaze.

Makes approximately 24 mini doughnuts.

3-Ingredient Lemon Frosting Cupcakes

I love lemon. Lemon cookies, lemon cake, lemonade… Outside of chocolate, it is my favorite flavor to bake with.

3-Ingredient-Lemon Frosting | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

I blame my Uncle Billy for my love of chocolate. Giving me M&Ms at his every visit. And my sweet grandmother is responsible for my love of lemon. She made my favorite pie, Lemon Ice Box, every time I asked. It’s amazing I was a skinny child. {grin}

This weekend, in the hopes that spring will arrive soon, I baked up some simple lemon cupcakes.

This post is really all about the icing and the candy topper. The cake mix is a Duncan Hines Supreme Lemon. So yummy and dairy free so my youngest can enjoy it too.

For the frosting, you’ll need:

  • 1 container Cool Whip
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 tbsp. lemon juice (or more to taste… I like more)
  • Optional: lemon yogurt coated pretzel

And the easy instructions:

  1. Combine cool whip, lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk in mixer
  2. Chill for 3 hours (it brings out the lemon flavor and hardens the icing)
  3. Top cupcakes and serve. If longer than 15 minutes, chill iced cupcakes.

Serve these yummies with a hot cup of coffee and you can’t go wrong.

Inexpensive Party Tip |Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Want a little inexpensive party tip? Embellish white cake plates with a simple strip of crepe paper. It’s much cheaper than ribbon and can be just as pretty!

St. Patrick’s Day: Rainbow Cupcakes & Gumball Clouds

If you’ve not noticed, I like to bake. {grin} So with St. Patrick’s Day coming and an art party to plan for, I decided to make some rainbow cupcakes!

Rainbow Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Aren’t they pretty!

Rainbow Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

The first thing I did was grab all my gel food coloring and tint my batter. After the cupcakes cooled I used the same gel icing to tint white frosting.

Rainbow Cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Top each cupcake with a sixlet, use crepe paper streamers for your rainbow and make sure your creative cupcakes end at a gumball cloud! Or, for St. Patrick’s Day, your rainbow might end at a pot of gold, like Rolos!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

St. Patrick’s Day: Easy Shamrock Cupcakes with Mint Frosting

It’s time to start thinking green! These fun 4-leaf clover, Lucky green, cupcakes with mint icing are the perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Lucky 4-Leaf Clover Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

I love working with candies.

St. Patrick's Day Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

This fun little cupcake is super easy with just a few goodies. Green chocolate covered sunflower seeds from Candy Galaxy (they have every color candy!) and Breyer’s chocolate sprinkles (the only sprinkles my kids actually like!).

St. Patrick's Day Cupcakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

And the mint frosting is a cinch. There are tons of amazing recipes from scratch, but when in a hurry I use Pillsbury icing (dairy-free for my little guy and always fluffy) and mix in 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract.

And since this is St. Patrick’s Day, I also mix in green gel food coloring (the other is too watery) until I get my desired color. (TIP: Tint your icing and let it set for five minutes before adding more food coloring. It will darken a bit.)
