This past weekend was action-packed with cooking. In fact, I felt like I was in the kitchen from Saturday afternoon to Monday night. I don't mind having folks over, but on big holiday weekends it does get to be a lot.
On Sunday, we celebrated the holiday with my family, because my Mom's birthday always falls right around Memorial Day and we celebrated her birthday. It also happened to be Pentecost Sunday, so we enjoyed two desserts -- both of which would make nice desserts for future Pentecost Sundays.
The first are the Tongues of Fire cupcakes that were posted at Catholic Cuisine. Little Miss Fancy Pants Kelly made those cupcakes pictured at Catholic Cuisine and I'll tell you -- those little tongues of fire are not easy! It would have helped had I purchased the mini marshmallows I was supposed to buy (had three bags of the big kind in my pantry but nary a mini in sight). I made about 100 tongues before I was satisfied with enough for five cupcakes. And then I frosted and sprinkled sugar on the rest. It was 10 p.m. Saturday night and I was done (in more ways than one)!
The cupcakes were yummy red velvet and the frosting traditional cream cheese -- both found here.
The second dessert was a gorgeous fruit
I'm linking up to the gals over at Catholic Cuisine if you want to check some other great ideas for celebrating our Church's birthday!
