{Real Party} Sparkes Family Easter Egg Hunt

Happy Easter Monday!

Whew, what a weekend!  We held our annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday and it was so much fun! We had a great turn out and my girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  If you remember the invitation, I kept the food sweet and simple.  On the menu; chocolate dipped marshmallows, red velvet truffles (my daughter called them trump-a-lump-akins), pineapple upside-down angel food cake, peeps, and of course.... CUPCAKES!  For this event I was determined to make my own cake icing.  I've been wanting to learn how to make buttercream icing for a sometime now. Well, Jess from Party Box Design shared her recipe on her blog a little while ago and I decided to try it!  It was YUMMY!!!!  (Thank you Jess!)  I even dyed the icing pink.  :)  I was so proud of myself.  My cupcake decorating skills still need much improvement, however, I'm making baby steps!  Here are a few pictures from the egg hunt!

Here I am, Ebony "Stuart" as I was affectionately named on Saturday!  It is very rare to get me in a picture these days, but since I have a 6 month old, I still get the wave the "it's baby weight" flag! :)

Have a Happy Easter Monday!
