Looking for something to beat the winter blahs?  How about a luau! Ok, so not a real one unless you happen to be in Hawaii, but Created By Diane came up with a great way to get a Hawaiian feel from a cupcake.  It’s an easy recipe so before you know it you will be dreaming of leis and secluded warm beaches.  Trust me.
