What does the smell of Malibu remind you of? Maybe fake ID's, school dances, and nights ending in spooning the toilet bowl?
Time to kick it old school! We're bringing you back to the good ol' days... when all that mattered was where everyone was partying on Friday night. We'll bring the Malibu... you bring the pineapple.
More high school trivia - what classic dish takes 5 min to make and was perfectly satisfying for breaky, lunch, and dinner? Grilled cheese sammies!
If you didn't attend your 10 year high school reunion, don't fret. These high school staples will surely take you down memory lane.
P.S. Dibs out on being the DD.

How we prep... Getting ready
In honour of our dear friend Ashleigh's birthday, our craft for the night was Malibu drizzled cupcakes and prepping a table of treats for the after party.
Three steps to making the cupcakes:
- Bake the malibu cupcake
- Drizzle with malibu syrup
- Ice with malibu icing
Not that the Wonderbread-Kraft grilled cheese needs to be tweaked... but now that we're ladies, a proper meal is only fitting.
You will need:
- Sourdough bread
- Our friend Ashleigh's homemade red pepper jelly
Make a sandwich of sliced brie, avocado, tomato, and red pepper jelly. Melt butter in frying pan, place sandwich in pan, flip when nice and golden, and enjoy!

How we craft...party party partyWe consumed every last brie melted bite and the evening was certainly not the last of our Hawaiian Sunset nights... we will meet again!
We had a lot of fun decorating our table... pipe cleaners and candy make everything look good. And what gal doesn't like pink?
We didn't! Everything turned out better than we expected. We definitely would've been the cool kids back in the day with these party faves.
Ok so maybe the icing was a little runny and the cupcake liners were a tad sticky (we added a second liner overtop to cover it up) but they tasted heavenly. Besides size - taste is all that really matters.
