Icing on the cupcake

Hello again Blog,

Just a short note since we've just tumbled back from a two week vacation that the rest of summer is going to be hard pressed to beat. After two perfectly sunny weeks on the beach we Boyd's are sun stroked, tanned, exhausted, and satisfied. A post vacation post is coming soon I promised, but for now I just had to share this one truly delicious and amazing thing I just discovered while on vacation thanks to my sister.

Take a look at this:

True, it looks just like another store bought frosting, but wait - is it really? don't be fooled, it's better.  My sister gave me this sample as a part of my birthday parcel extravaganza (a mixed bag of Superstore goodies that ranged from this frosting, to nail polish, to paper back romance novels: best present ever). You get a basic jug of white frosting, and then a selection of unique flavors in small packages to stir in additionally. I was treated to Cotton Candy flavoring.

Cotton Candy icing people, are you with me? It doesn't get better.

The result: best birthday cupcakes I've had in a long long time.

If I were you, and I'm just saying, I'd run not walk to my local grocery to pick me up some of this sweetness.

Bon appetit!

PS: no I was not paid by Duncan Hines to brag about their new product, I just felt it too good to not share. Why I didn't think of this myself and sell my idea for millions, I'll never know.....
