S'mores Roundup

Pin It

Did you know that today, August 10th, is NATIONAL S'MORES DAY?! I absolutely love coming up with s'mores recipes. The nostalgic campfire treat recreated in the kitchen creates so many possibilities. Something about making a buttery brown sugar graham cracker crust, topped with some sort of chocolate center and finished with marshmallowey goodness, really takes the classic s'more to the next level! Here are a few of my favorite S'MORES creations. Hope you like them as much as I do!

{VIDEO} Mini Cereal Treat Princess Doll Cakes

Pin It

This is my spin on a classic barbie doll princess cake. In my version I used a marshmallow cereal treat for the dress in place of cake, for a quick no-bake alternative. For the top, instead of using an actual doll, I have a really cute set of printable paper dolls, in all different colored dresses and hair colors for you to customize and stick right into the dress!


Create a doll cake for the birthday girl, your little princess, or for any special occasion!

Even make a set of mini doll cakes for your bridesmaids!

Mix and match my printable dolls with fun accessories and frost up a mini doll cake in no time to surprise little girls and adults alike!

{VIDEO} Best Chocolate Cupcakes Ever (easy one-bowl recipe with tons of flavor combinations!)

Pin It

 Looking for a moist, fudgy, rich and decadent chocolate cupcake recipe, that is virtually fool proof and made in one bowl, in just minutes?! Well here it is!

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE!


These cupcakes are extra moist from the vegetable oil, packed with flavor from the vanilla, cocoa, and touch of espresso to bring out the depth in the chocolate (you can't taste any coffee flavor in the baked cupcakes, I promise). They also have a super soft, velvety tender crumb the acidity in the buttermilk. Best of all, they bake up nice and pretty with a perfect, fluffy dome on top.

{VIDEO} Simple Tootsie Roll Candy Rose Cupcake Topper

Pin It

Gorgeous roses make the most beautiful and elegant cupcake toppers, cake decorations or dessert adornments and they are actually so simple to make at home using pretty much any pliable material, from store bought fondant, to tootsie rolls or candy!! There are a few different techniques for making roses. This is mine. I think it is pretty simple and hope you do too!

I love making cupcake and cake toppers out of different types of candy instead of fondant, primarily because it tastes a lot better, so get creative and look for different types of pliable candy to work with, or pick up a pack of store bought colored fondant at your local craft store or online.You can really make any decoration to match the theme of the occasion, but today I am showing you a simple and classic rose because it is one of my favorite decorations to top my cupcakes, cakes and more.
