Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

I have set to make the kitty cat cupcakes but I can't find black licorice that is in thin ropes, can you recommend a particular package to look for?

Stacie, Walgreens sometimes has them. Did you try Target? If your at a mall, the candy stores in the malls usually has them. I'll keep thinking....let me know when you find the licorice and how the cupcakes turn out:)
