Fun Friday The Letter U: Umbrella Cupcakes

Well it is the second day of a complete soaking rain of a day, and it is Fun Friday. We are doing an A-Z meme, and we are up to the letter U. U is for umbrellas, how perfect for a rainy day. If you click the image, it will enlarge, and you will get an easy, and fun rainy day Umbrella cupcake recipe. They are cute, and simple to make. Your kids can even help with these, they are so easy. My kids love cupcakes.

So what about umbrellas anyways. Who made them, and why? I think the why is obvious LOL. They were used to keep people dry, and to protect them from the sun. An umbrella protects you from rain, and a parasol protects you from the sun. Umbrellas can be dated way back to Ancient times, even before Christ was born. There is no specific date for when the umbrella was actually invented. Lots of people today use huge umbrellas for shade at the beach, or on their back patio for entertaining. They come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and of course prices. I personally love the vintage, and antique parasols that society ladies used to carry with them, as part of their regular everyday attire.

You see them on the beaches here in Florida, and backyards, in the summer to protect from the sun.

Hi Mel, I hardly use umbrellas in the summertime, I feel so awkward here. I only use them during the rainy days.

I don;t know why, but I have been taking shots of umbrellas lately.

I would love to make those cupcakes!
