Pirate POPS

I love to do Pirate pops… I love even more to customize them to look like each child at the event!

 

 

 

Battle Star Galactica!!!!

Recently I did a wedding and was asked to do a Battle Star Galactica theme for the groomsmen cake.  I also did two dozen pop to go with it… Loved how they turned out!

 

 

Cupcake Toppers

Cupcake Toppers can make any ordinary cupcake into something spectacular.  No matter what the theme may be, something can be created to match it perfectly!  I was recently asked to make these and I had the best time doing them.  Any design you may have in mind can be turned into something sweet and edible to top your cupcakes.  Want to take it a step further? You can add them to cookies too!  Best part is, they can be shipped and kept for long periods of time.  They are 100% edible.

Rose Cake Pops


I wanted to try something a little different… I decided these rose cake pops would be fun… After a little trial and error… I like how they turned out!

 

Avery In Wonderland Soiree

In our house, we love anything Disney. There for all our parties are Disney inspired.  Alice in Wonderland is a movie favorite.  We created our own Wonderland for our first daughters third birthday!

 

This party took me months of planning and creating.  From the front yard through our house and into the back yard where we had a lovely tea party and a sweet game of croquet.

In the front yard the guests were greeted by the Mome Raths and other Wonderland Creatures.

The Mirrored Birds, Bread and Butterflies and the Horn Ducks were all out to play

The White Rabbit’s foot prints lead the way…

 

The “drink me” beverage and keys to unlock the door were set out to Enter…

Once inside the Wonderland Garden was in full bloom…

The main table was full of snacks…

The Birthday Girl got her own “Mad Hatter” Cake

The Caterpillar on his Mushroom sat 9 feet high…

The cards were also busy painting the roses red…

They were also ready and set up for a fun game of croquet

Of course the flimsy flamingos were blown up to play, but for some reason they wouldn’t cooperate 🙂 the kids loved trying to hit the balls with them.

Main table with snacks, finger sandwiches, and desserts…

We shopped around for different tea cups that were on sale or at second hand stores and then painted them.  I stacked and glued them.

We used squeeze it’s for their drinks and added home made “drink me” tags…

for their take home favors we did cupcakes in jar with “eat me” tags…

This was one of my most favorite parties I’ve ever put on…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Granny Saides Blue Berry Crunch Cake

I found this recipe YEARS ago and has been a favorite in our house ever since.  It’s a recipe Justin Timberlake shared on ABC.  It’s one his Granny use to make.  It’s an amazing dessert and also a great brunch recipe as well.

Ingredients:

1 Tall can of crushed pineapple undrained

3 cups blueberries

3/4 cup sugar

1 cup chopped pecans (optional, my family doesn’t like them so I don’t include them.)

1 stick margarine, melted

1/4 cup sugar

1 box yellow cake mix

2 Tbls margarine, melted

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a 9×13 baking dish. Pour can of pineapple into baking dish. Coat blueberries with ¾ cup of sugar and pour on top of pineapple. Optional: Add 1 tablespoon melted margarine to the blueberries and sugar to help the sugar stick to the berries. Sprinkle dry yellow cake mix on top of blueberries. Optional: Add ½ cup chopped pecans to cake mix before sprinkling. Drizzle melted stick of margarine on top of cake mix. Mix ¼ cup sugar with 1 cup pecans and sprinkle on top. Optional: Add 1 tablespoon melted margarine to help sugar stick to pecans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Some changes I have made along the way:
Blueberries are pretty expensive, especially three cups worth.  I began using frozen blueberries and added strawberries as well.  Make sure they are completely thawed and drained as much as possible.  I also used Splenda instead of real sugar and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray instead of margarine.  I try to cut calories where ever I can.  I will say it’s not quite as tasty, but it’s still amazing.  When I’m making for people other than my family, I will use real sugar and I also like to use real butter.  I know this is bad, but I also use two sticks of butter instead of margarine.  Oh My Goodness it tastes heavenly.  I like the butter over the yellow cake. It’s my favorite part and I usually pick all that part off and eat just that if there is any left overs (not often though).  It’s very much like a cobbler, try it with vanilla ice cream.  You can also try it with peaches or pears…. YUMMMMM
I hope you all try this recipe.  It’s fantastic.  Let me know how it turns out!!!!
