White Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes

I have a little confession. I found a new favorite cupcake about a week ago...triple white chocolate....and I haven't shared it with you yet. I know...I'm sorry, please can we still be friends? It's not that I don't want to share...I made them for a ladies night in at my house, and they were gone as fast as I could whip them up. So I'll be making a second batch and sharing it with you, very soon. ... [ read more... ]

Buttercream 101

I guess I can no longer put this post off, today we're having the talk. You know...the buttercream talk. Now don't get me wrong here, I love making and working with buttercream. If there's one thing I've got down...it's buttercream. I've made literately hundreds of batches and I'm almost positive I could make it with my eyes closed, it's really that simple. But for some reason many "seasoned" ... [ read more... ]

Swirly Halloween Cookies

Call a shrink,  I have dessert commitment issues. This weekend I was going to bake some yummy fall flavored treats...and today I was going to post all about buttercream neither of which I did. I laid everything out on the counter and even opened the can of pumpkin...but then these cookies popped in my head and I had to make them. I'm not a bit disappointed because these came out perfect! As for ... [ read more... ]

Candy Corn Meringues

I love making meringues, but these might honestly be one of my favorite things I ever made. Not only are they easy, they are inexpensive, serve a lot, and so incredibly stinking cute! Don't worry if you aren't a fan of candy corns, these light and airy cookies have a soft vanilla taste - just dressed up as candy corns. I couldn't resist layering yellow, orange, and white meringue to make these ... [ read more... ]

Chocolate Covered - Candy Corn - Oreos - On A Stick - Drowned In Sprinkles. Need I really say more? Although, I should probably tell you...it's CANDY CORN WEEK!!! I love making all things candy corn about this time of year and I have so many treats to share I thought we'd pack em all into a week long white, orange, and yellow fiesta. The hard part is picking which to share...because my ... [ read more... ]

Ewwy Gooey Slime Filled Cupcakes

I'll be the first to admit, I'm a sucker for themes but I guess that's no secret really. All you have to do is whisper a project theme in my ear and I start twitching, my mind runs away 1,000 MPH with different ideas. Some incredibly creative and some just a bit  completely overboard. Babe, do you think we could get a real dolphin at her under the sea party? Ok maybe not that extreme but thankful ... [ read more... ]

Graveyard Pudding {Beware of bones!}

"What are you up to today?"..."Oh you know, making little puddings with edible bones it in, you?"  If you hang around me enough conversations like this are kinda the norm. Matter of fact I don't think my friends even blink, I'm not sure there's really much I can do to surprise them anymore. In my defense my oldest daughter has been repeatedly been asking for "dirt pudding"for awhile now so today ... [ read more... ]
