While The Girl was here she arranged for a rendezvous with Carrie, the brains behind Bella Cupcake Couture - only the most stylish cupcake wrappers around!
Pictured above are just some of the darling designs Bella Cupcake Couture has to offer - and you can purchase them at my favorite Cupcakery - New York Cupcakes in Bellevue (Crossroads area) - along with the best cupcakes this side of the Mississippi...although Someone had other things on his mind while we were there...
These wrappers (Olivia - Sea Blue) are absolutely perfect for my Flying Angel Cupcakes...(The Navy's Blue Angels will fly over Lake Washington and I can hardly stand the wait!) The blue wrapper reminded me of the water and the little white squiggly lines seem to me to be the exact pattern the Blues will be flying!

My Flying Angel Cupcakes are really Lemonade cupcakes with a lemon-flavored cream cheese frosting - and they are delicious! On top sits an "exact" replica of one of the Navy's Blue Angels - like it's on a cloud...ready for the afterburners to kick into high gear!
Little planes are available at party shops for about .25 cents each...sprayed blue they look just like those Navy jets I'll be swooning over later today - and tomorrow - and Saturday - and Sunday...can you ever get enough?!? The individual cupcake stands were a gift from a dear friend, but if you REALLY want to get yourself some, then visit Farmhouse Wares, one of my favorite shopping sites.
Here's the link to the recipe: Pink Lemonade Cupcakes and Frosting. Since I didn't want pink cupcakes or frosting I just eliminated the red food coloring. This is one of my all-time favorite cupcakes and frosting - (thanks again to Stephanie!) if you haven't tried it you should - even if you don't have little blue planes to put on top!
