Towel Hut Treats!

Today I'm heading to the pool, well not really but I remember the days when I went to the pool and my first stop was at the towel hut.  I'm stopping at the hut not only to gather up the towels, but to gather up a few treats.  Did you know any treat can be a pool party treat?

This Way to the Beach!

There are two kinds of people, pool people and beach people.  Which are you?  I would say, in a perfect world I would be lying by the pool looking out over the ocean.  I like to keep things nice and tidy by the pool, no sand on my towel or stuck to my feet.  At the same time, looking out at the never ending ocean is so peaceful and entertaining.
Today I'm bringing a little sand into the kitchen, so to speak, with my version of a sand castle cake and cake balls.

Never Melt Ice Cream!

After going through my new Cupcakery book, I couldn't wait to get started baking.  Would you believe Toni created a cookie dough frosting recipe? Everyone else might see cookie dough, I saw Ice Cream!  Finally, I had a reason to use the set of ice cream dishes that had been waiting patiently for such a long time.  NOW IS THE TIME!

Time For Dad!

Running out of time to make something for Father's Day?  Don't worry, I've got you covered.  Poor Dad, it seems sometimes he gets left out of all my cute themed sweets, but not today.  I've made TIME for Dad and you can too.

 Thank you for letting me bombard you with Hawaiian themed sweets, but I have moved on.  I will now bombard you with cookies.  After spending my days on the beach (a/k/a making tropical sweets) I came home and made cookies.  A LOT OF COOKIES!  First up is from a set of three dozen cookies for a Rock 'n Roll Baby Shower.

Hibiscus Cookies!

I really wish I was announcing all my readers had won a tropical vacation, you probably wish that too, right?  Today is the last post of my Hawaiian themed sweets, hopefully you've had the chance to make a few. 
I have good news, bad news and then good news again.  First of all, I made cookies, hibiscus cookies to be exact.  And the bad news?  I didn't make a tutorial, now for the final good news...I'm giving them away to one of you!

Hawaiian Lei Cake Pops!

I almost didn't make the Hawaiian lei for the luau.  I really should have started with this, isn't that the way you are greeted once you arrive in Hawaii?  Or perhaps you could greet your guests with an edible Lei?

Edible Beach Umbrellas!

I have been spending my days surrounded by sun and sand with gorgeous views... and by that I mean making tropical stuff.  Don't you love when you find the perfect spot on the beach?  Along with a cute cabana boy to bring your umbrella?  It's been a long time since I've had the opportunity to sit on the beach under an umbrella. 

Today, in a matter of minutes, I'll take you there.

Grass Skirt Caramel Apple!


Are you ready to hit the beach, Hawaiian style?  Have you ever had a Hawaiian Caramel Apple?  Basically, it's a caramel apple dressed in a grass skirt...looks like I decided to let my apple do the hula.  Can't you just imagine it swaying in the breeze?
