Today I bring you sweetness.
Today I’m happy and want you to be happy too!
I’m happy because my girls are all in town for the first time in a year. Tonight I’m hosting a family cookout so they can visit with their aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.
I wanted to make something special for dessert and we’ve been craving pineapple these days.
It all started with these..
They were calling my name. I spent weeks thinking of what I could do with them. I remembered a recipe from one of my favorite blogs – Gina’s Skinny Recipes. It was a ridiculously easy recipe and low fat to boot!
Cake mix and crushed pineapple. That’s it. Crazy huh?
Throw them in the mixer, stir and fill…
Here comes the fun part!
Make a good butter cream frosting. I like the one on the Wilton website – it holds up nicely for piping.
Simply pipe and swirl, pipe and swirl….
And you get these!
I gotta run and make potato salad – family’s coming tonight!
