Summer Cookies and Cupcakes

Share it!   

I have a real thing for summer. In particular, the temperatures experienced here during the summer months. I mean, there’s nothing like a warm breeze to lift my spirits, make me smile… and to make me want to bake happy, beachy, pastel, whimsical treats.

As you may have seen if you’ve been following me here and there, especially on Instagram, our home is being renovated, and the lack of a kitchen makes it a little more challenging to bring my baking ideas to fruition. They’ll just have to wait, for a few more weeks until I visit my lovely friend Kim again, who graciously has offered her kitchen up for use. Until then, I’m sharing some summer sweet ideas with you, perhaps to help feed your summer baking desire, or to inspire you for a particular decorating theme. I hope you have fun, and I would love to see what you come up with, if you’d like to share your photos on Google+, Facebook, Instagram (tag @sweetopia_),Β Twitter, or just leave me a comment here.

Happy baking!

      Hi Joan,
      I tried the link a few times and it’s working. Maybe let the page load for a little longer and then try clicking?
