The Rainbow Connection - Kai's Birthday

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection... the lovers, the dreamers and me!

So says Kermit. A pretty and hopeful song. Love the tinkly twang of the banjo. The Muppet Show is a pretty awesome and hilarious show. Characters of all types and colors partying together and singing songs. Miss Piggy and Kermit? A big beautiful and strong pig-woman with a fey, diminutive little greenie frog man? Pretty great. Here's a link of Kermit singing a duet with yes, Debbie Harry of Blondie!

I made these lovely pastel rainbow cupcakes for Kai's birthday. He had a seriously FUN sounding birthday, according to his mom Sarah: "an all boys adventure into wild, crazy, messy activities - Tie dye shirts. Whip cream pie throw. Water balloons. Jello eating, no hands. Goop play ( colored water + cornstarch)."

I adore the sound of this party... letting boys be boys but also showing them the sheer fun and joy of making stuff - tie dye shirts are pure magic! Not a video game or computer in sight!

I thought these rainbow cupcakes would be a nice addition to the fun - colorful, wacky and tie-dye looking without being overly literal about the party theme. They were fun to make, as always! Rainbow cupcakes are magical too!

'Til next time, blog world!
