I'm excited to report that all the kids at the barnyard loved their treat. Their enthusiasm for the cupcakes was only slightly eclipsed by their excitement for riding the BIG yellow school bus to the play. So much for culture, right? For the next field trip we decided to scrap the idea of going to a museum. We have opted for simply loading up a good old "yellow dawg" with preschoolers and cupcakes and taking a few spins up and down the main drag of our town. We'll roll down all the windows, let the wind blow through our hair, and while away the day. Parents were already on their cell phones with work, scheduling personal days in order to chaperon that one. Myself included.

Meanwhile back on the farm...
My daughter's preschool attended a stage performance of the Little Red Hen today. Following the play, we had a picnic and these are the barnyard inspired cupcakes I made for the event. I was still on an adrenaline high from the coconut tinting success I experienced at Easter, so I went out on a limb and toasted the coconut for this batch. I know, I know, I might be getting a little heavy handed with the coconut, but it made for perfect looking hay don't ya think?
