Our party is retro themed, so we made them look like an old-fashioned ice cream sundae.
Bake the cupcakes. Any favorite recipe or cake mix will do. We decided to go with a gluten free box mix, which was delicious and easy!
We decided on Buttercream frosting because it is a favorite and holds up well without refrigeration. Also easier to pipe frosting.
We love almond extract, but if it’s not to your liking, just leave it out.
On slow speed, slowly add 3 to 4 cups confectioners sugar while adding 4 to 5 tablespoons milk. Alternate until a good consistency for piping.

Hello. My name is Pam. Welcome to theDIYeffect.com, also known as RetroSewing.net. Thank you for visiting, and please bear with me during the changes the website is going through right now. I'm updating the design and content, so things are a bit scrambled right now, but it will be worth it when done.
Much has happened since I started this website in 2009. A big move to the country, lots of remodeling, gardening, experimenting with recipes, party planning and parties are just some of the activities keeping our family busy. Living in the country is full of new, exciting things to do and discover. I love the fresh air, wild life, and beautiful country views, not to mention new experiences, like watching my husband learn to drive a tractor.
Our life is full of DIY's, and that's how theDIYeffect.com was born. Retrosewing will always be a part of theDiyeffect.com, and retro sewing projects will continue, but this change of name (RetroSewing to theDIYeffect.com) will accommodate all my DIY activities, including "Home Improvements", "Recipes", "Gluten-Free Recipes", "Growing a Square Foot Garden", "Party Planning Ideas", and of course "Sewing". I'll soon be posting the adorable "1950's Playsuit" with romper and skirt, as well as many other DIY's. Hope you'll join me.
