A couple of weekends ago family and friends came together to celebrate my husband’s Birthday. He wanted a chill day… a day that called for hanging out poolside, sand volleyball, a cookout, beer and sweets. It was tons of fun and we spent the entire day, literally the ENTIRE day, poolside having a blast with a few of our favorite people. It was a perfect way to celebrate. I had to have my party planning hand involved somehow and asked Eye Candy Event Details to create this fun invitation.
Working with Love & Sugar Kisses is the best and it was exciting to have her create something beer themed for my favorite guy. I decided on Corona Cupcakes (his favorite beer) with coordinating cupcake toppers. Maria created the coolest toppers! I also made Blue Moon cupcakes as another beer inspired cupcake option, we’ve been anxious to try them both out. I wasn’t prepared to bake as long as I did but they came out so yummy! The Blue Moon cupcakes were the crowd fave.
The Cupcake Recipe adapted by Sweet Tooth. I cut the recipe in half for the Blue Moon.
Orange/lime wedges and sanding sugar for garnish
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
- When cupcakes are done, poke holes in the tops of the cupcakes with toothpicks and brush some beer on each while still warm.
4 cups powdered sugar
