Snow Cone Cupcake Tutorial

In case you've totally missed all the fun this far, Cupcakery (my book) is officially here! This last week has been a whirlwind of emotions as I was able to watch you guys share your excitement while receiving your books over social media. From the bottom of my heart, I can not thank you enough. While I have many many many more sobbing thank you's I'm going to save those for another post later ... [ read more... ]

O-fish-ally Number 1 Dad Cupcakes!

I learned a little lesson this week, like no matter what mom says, sometimes there really aren't many more fish in the sea. Sometimes there are only six fish in the sea. Particularly, six little cupcake fish who found their time here in the ocean with chocolate bubbles would last no longer then one minute (give or take a few moments). Had I know this...maybe I would have snapped the camera a ... [ read more... ]

RAWR-some Father’s Day Cookies

You know what is totally out of my league? Boy stuff. Yep, super heroes...monsters...trucks...dirt...and dinosaurs. All boy stuff, all out of my league. Recently this has become more and more obvious as my girls grow older. While I do have two brothers growing up one was ten years older then me and one was ten years younger then me so I really wasn't ever aware of the "boy stuff" they were into. ... [ read more... ]

Wait, wait, wait...don't go! I promise these pretty cookies aren't THAT hard, nor will they take you 18 hours. Unless...of course you have twins. And you thought they would be a great idea to make for both class ... [ read more... ]

Valentines Chocolates Chocolate Cookies? Boxed Chocolates Cookies? Chocolate Cookies Made To Look Like Chocolate? Do you see the confusion here? I gave up and went with Box Of Chocolates - Cookies Edition! Man, ... [ read more... ]

Merry & Bright Christmas Bulb Cookies

2014 is coming to a close, and if I were to sum up our year in two words it would be "Chaos & Crazy". Not that it's been a bad year, it has been a great year but so much going on in every which way, hardly a moment to stop. This year we're closing out the year with a bang as I wrap up the final edits of the book (eeekkkkkkkkk) and we fight our traditional Christmas flu. Yep, it's one of our crazy ... [ read more... ]
