Did you ever see something and be so inspired that you absolutely had to re-create it as soon as possible or you thought your head would pop right off? I'm sure I'm not alone here! This is how I felt when I saw these cupcakes. My own hydrangea bush is doing very well this year, after what I can only guess is a year off. It didn't bloom at all last year, but a week or so ago it started blooming and has been wooing me ever since.
I have been outside daily to check on how it's blooming: every day the shades of purple, blue and cream have blended to a new masterpiece. If I could somehow paint a room that embodied the colors of these hydrangeas I would never leave it.
Anyway on to the cupcakes. When I saw them I was smitten. Aren't they gorgeous?! And wasn't it just serendipity that I happened to have 1 cup of buttercream icing and some vanilla cupcakes in the freezer?
This was our dessert tonight:
