So, it's time to kick off summer with some awesome new recipes from Betty Crocker on the Betty 10: Red Hot Summer Trends. On top of that, they have teamed up with DIY guru Erica Domesek from P.S.- I made this for great spins on those recipes! You can get new ideas as well as watch some great videos.

Mai Tai Tiki Pop:
Cheeky Tiki- Fun, over-the-top Tiki trends are back in a big way, so take the flavors of a Tiki cocktail – the Mai Tai – and turn it into a fruity (and boozy) Mai Tai Tiki Pop

DIY Idea: Don’t throw out those tropical drink umbrellas! Use them to craft a colorful Mai Tai brooch – a fashion must-have that’s perfect for any summer fete!


Lemon-Ginger Icebox Cookie Cupcakes:
New Takes On Cupcakes- Dessert lovers everywhere are inventing new and interesting twists on the classic cupcake. These Lemon-Ginger Icebox Cookie Cupcakes are made with cookies, which when stacked between layers of whipped cream and then chilled, become cake-like.

DIY Idea: Create colorful, flower-like centerpieces and bouquets that last all summer simply by using cupcake liners and floral wire to create the illusion of petals.


Fruity Fro-Yo Fun Bars:
Easy. Freezy. Fun. Make fun frozen yogurt treats yourself! Frozen ice cream novelties are the ultimate summer treat, and with only four ingredients and a few simple steps Fruity Fro-Yo Fun Bars are easy to make with the kids.

DIY Idea: Save your novelty sticks for a chic sunburst mirror that will brighten up any room. Use a round mirror as a base and glue sticks around the edges. For an ultra luxe look, spray paint the sticks gold.


Grillside Guacamole:
Thrillin’ Grillin’- Grillmasters everywhere are taking lessons from the “tableside” preparation trend, using the grill to bring excitement and flavor to unexpected dishes, like Grillside Guacamole.

DIY Idea: Get inspired by the iconic checker and diamond patterns created on a grill near you. Use fabric markers and a ruler to create a grill-like motif on plain pieces of cotton fabric, turning them into one-of-a-kind place mats.


Beer Snow Cones:
Kid Food Grows Up- The foods that we loved best as kids always inspire special memories. Adding a grown-up twist makes them even better than you remember. Try the Beer Snow Cones, made from granita-style beer “snow” and a drizzle of fruity simple syrup.

DIY Idea: Tap into your summer camp days when tie dye was all the rage by gathering your friends and family together for an outdoor party where a DIY day is all about DYE. Reach for rubber gloves, rubber bands, a clothes line with pins and a bevy of colors to create with.
