Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so glad to have you! I have updated the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 100 designs and recipes! Check it out!!

It’s funny how some cupcakes evolve. When we were discussing the Ice Cream inspired cupcakes, Doug insisted that I do Superman Cupcakes. Growing up, and still today, Superman Ice Cream is Doug’s favorite flavor. If you aren’t familiar with Superman Ice Cream, it has 3 flavors combined together…Blue Moon or Blueberry, Strawberry or Cherry, and Tutti-Fruitti which is yellow.

I had the cupcakes planned, and then along came the Picnic Series, I thought it would be fun to combine the two. I baked these cupcakes in small mason jars with lids and rings, making them super easy to pack in a picnic.
