Baking Monday – Splash Party Cupcakes

Today's dessert is a little cheat-y ... boxed cake mix and canned frosting ... but it was a nice break to bake something quick and have fun decorating.

And I had a helper!

We had "splash party" over the weekend - our family won a package of Super Soakers and Cheetos from, so we decided to do a water-themed dessert ... little teddy bears in swim tubes!

(It was Dora's idea to use gummy worms as pool noodles when we ran out of peach rings.)

And the party itself was a blast - kids wore swim gear and brought water squirters, plus we had a Super Soaker for each family in our party pack. I also stocked up on some extra water guns - which were hard to find, I looked at three other stores before finally finding them at Five Below. I wondered if maybe stores are choosing not to sell them anymore? Anyhow, the weather cooperated and it was a beautiful day. The kids had so much fun and it was just the right amount of activity and chaos. Most of the dads were right in the mix, while most of the moms stayed happily dry on the deck with cold beverages. A much needed day of fun in the sun with good friends.
