Ari's Birthday Sleep over cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for one of the sweetest girls I know, she had just turned nine. She is so appreciative and I just think the world of her.


I made it through another holiday

Well, Christmas and Michael's birthday have passed and I survived. Boy, last week was crazy!!! We went to McCovey's in Walnut Creek for Michael's 10th birthday. The boys had a great time. If you haven't been to McCovey's yet, you have to go.


Christmas Crackers

Tie one end off before putting candy in the cracker.

Empty toilet paper rolls


Tomato Soup Cake

This cake is really really good! I used a spice cake and
followed the directions on the box and added 1-can of
Tomato Soup, 1-3oz. box of cheesecake pudding mix.

Hard to believe it has been 8 years since I made these
cupcake because my husband love it so much.
  I will make these soon and post the pictures.


Pink Ribbon

I don't know if you know this or not but I am an administrator of an AMAZING group "Sweet Treats," on Flickr. Since it is October we are posting all of our PINK RIBBON cupcakes, cookies and cakes. There are so many amazing pictures, please check them out.


My EGGLESS cupcakes

The Recipe~ 1 box Chocolate Cake Mix, 1-3oz box of Chocolate pudding, 1/2 Cups of crushed Oreo cookies. I followed the recipe on the box but forgot the eggs. These cupcakes tasted so GOOD!!!! I made them to sell at a bake sale but they never made it to the SALE. I can't wait to make these again.


Pretzel Snacks

I love the pretzel butterflies, I really like them on the long pretzels

These Rice Crispie balls are the best. I am going to make Popcorn balls next and dip the lower half in caramel and drizzle with chocolate. Sounds delicious!

Marshmallow Pops

I usually make S'more and Rocky Road Pops, but when I saw Bakerella's Cupcake pops I decided to give my MARSHMALLOWS dip into Royal icing and see if they looked anything like Bakerella's cupcake pops. They are really really simple, and you know I keep it simple. I used royal icing because I had some extra icing I wanted to get rid of. My boys loved them.

Billy's Vanilla Vanilla

I've been very interested in the recipe for some time now and I finally got to make it today! I've read some reviews mostly good but some negative ones as well. The not so good ones were mostly about the cupcakes being dry and some were reviewed that the centers in the cupcakes were sunken.

I followed the recipe and was very pleased with the results. I can't imagine them being dry with 2 sticks of butter. MOVE OVER PAULA DEEN! The only thing I can think of that would have caused the sunken centers is overfilling the liners. Or maybe a little tap of the oven caused them to fall.

Overall this was a yummy and easy recipe! BUT I'm interested what would happen if you substituted regular flour for cake flour??


Decorative Cupcake Holder

Step 1. According fold a (9 x 6 inch) crepe paper, each fold should be 1 inch. This is what it should look like. Step 2. Round the corners Step 3. Cut them into individual strips Step 4. Glue the strips onto a big "NUT CUP." Step. 5 Turn the nut cup over and fluff out the crepe paper.


Decorative Oatmeal box

Trace the lid on colored or decorative paper.
Double Stick the flowers together and place in the middle of the lid.
Poke the ribbon through the middle of the flower with "Mrs. Grossman's," amazing tweezersPull the ribbon through the lid and tie a knot. That way you won't be able to pull the ribbon out.

Decorated Oatmeal Container

Fill the Decorated Oatmeal container with BIG cookies.
Lid 1 no ribbon~ kind of boring! Lid 2 This is the lid with the ribbon.


Time Capsule

I used an OATMEAL box to make this Time Capsule! I usually make jumbo cookies to put in the decorative box. I will post instructions later.


Decorated tins for cookies or cupcakes

After putting glue on the lid place cupcake on top.
Place the can over the cupcake and place a heavy item on top till glue is dry.

Finish wrapping the decorative paper around the tin can and decorate how ever you want!

Now you are finish! These are a perfect gift for Teachers, neighbors, friends, relatives, bosses, co-workers, customers, or anyone you just want to feel SPECIAL!
