Day 136-Marshmallow Frosting Adventures

I found a recipe on Pinterest (seriously can you tell I love's bad) for marshmallow frosting.

I was directed to this cute blog to find the recipe.

I tested it out today and it tastes incredible!  It's also pretty easy to make which is always a plus in my book :)

The recipe only calls for 4 ingredients.  4 egg whites, 1 cup sugar, a pinch of salt, and 1 tsp vanilla...simple right!

You start by whisking everything, except the vanilla, over a double broiler until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is hot to touch. 

After that you transfer the mixture to a larger bowl, add vanilla, and beat with an electric mixer.


Then you pipe onto cupcakes!

So easy and so yummy!  It tastes just like a marshmallow but is fluffier and gooier..heaven.

For some reason mine didn't turn out quite as fluffy as the original posters looks in her pictures so I'm going to try again and whisk my egg/sugar mixture longer over the double broiler and hopefully this will make it fluffier. 

If not, oh well, because it's still wonderful!  I plan on adding some pink food color and using this recipe for Miss Bailey's 1st birthday watermelon themed cupcakes..can't wait!

Day 133-Sidewalk Paint & Swimming

The other day I found a tutorial on Pinterest for sidewalk paint which led me to this great blog.

All you do is mix cornstarch, food color, and water into a paste and you've got beautiful, inexpensive, sidewalk paint!

Today I decided to make some and let Morgan try it out.

It was a hit

Bailey enjoyed watching :)

After the sidewalk paint fun Morgan, who has the attention span of a goldfish, decided it was time to go swimming.

So that's what we did for the rest of the afternoon

Bailey wanted nothing to do with the cold water

This was as close as she'd get

An all around great day with my girls <3

Day 132-Father's Day

A day late and a dollar short but better than not at all right?

While everyone else was still sleeping I got up and make sausage/egg muffins and lemon poppy seed yummy!
