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.

Sweet Little Turkeys

Sweet T.O.M. Turkeys

via Family Fun 
almost too cute to eat

Just couldn't resist these adorable Thanksgiving Cupcakes from Family Fun Magazine!

Their candy corn plumage and shortbread wings guarantee that these irresistible Treat of the Month Turkeys (T.O.M.s for short) will be gobbled up as soon as they land on the dessert table.
                Ingredients:
  • Cupcake
  • Chocolate frosting
  • 3 oval shortbread cookies (we used Keebler Sandies Right Bites Shortbread)
  • 6 to 10 candy corn pieces
  • White icing
  • Black decorators' gel
  • Red fruit leather (we used strawberry Fruit by the Foot)


                    Instructions:
    1. Frost the cupcake, then press in a cookie head and 2 cookie wings.
    2. Press in a row or two of candy corn tail feathers.
    3. To make an eye, add a small dot of white icing to the head, then add a dot of black decorators' gel for a pupil.
    4. For a beak, cut the white tip from a piece of candy corn and press it in place.
    5. To make the wattle, cut a 1-inch square of fruit leather. Roll it into a tube and stick it in place over the beak.
