So, if you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a little sneak peek of what I am about to announce. It has a little something to do with this exciting package I got in the mail the other week...


 
Well, all those sweet mixes made their way to my front door because I have been given the opportunity to be a brand ambassador for Krusteaz as part of their Bakers Dozen campaign!

Krusteaz has all kinds of really simple and delish baking mixes that you can use for easy classic staples, from pancakes, to cookies, muffins, bars and more... or if you like to get creative in the kitchen like I do, you can use the mixes as a base recipe for some super creative concoctions, like layered desserts, fancy breakfast for dinner recipes and even some savory recipes! So stay tuned for some really fun semi-homemade recipes and kitchen creations for all of you looking for a quick way to create impressive and fool-proof breakfasts, desserts, dinners and more.

Mini Deep Dish Muffin Tin Pizzas (Pepperoni, BBQ Chicken & more!)

Pin It

These individual sized deep dish pizzas, baked in a muffin tin, create a perfect appetizer platter, make an adorable finger food option at parties, a great make-ahead lunch box item, and are a simple and fun 'kid friendly' activity for adults and children alike. The best part is, they are cheap, quick, and super easy to make!

Pizza is my all time favorite food. I like every kind of pizza from delivery, to frozen pizza, to NY style, to deep dish. I like meat pizza, veggie pizza... tomato sauce to bbq sauce; as long as it is extra cheesy!

Easy Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

Pin It

This recipe could not be easier! Now, you can make the pie crust, pudding and whipped cream from scratch, but for the most simple version of this dessert, you can buy a frozen pie, a box of pudding mix and a can of whipped cream for a creamy, chocolatey dessert with fresh banana and a flaky crust in no time!

Sweet Treat Tootsie Roll Cupcake Toppers

Pin It

I love using candy to create fun and festive cupcake and cake toppers! It adds a really special little touch and tastes a lot better than fondant. 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.You can really make any decoration to match the theme of the occasion, but to celebrate all things sweet as summer comes to an end, here I am sharing some sweet treat tootsie roll cupcake toppers!

{VIDEO} Cupcake Ice Cream Cones

Pin It

These fun melt-free cones are a perfect party treat! Everyone really gets a kick out of these when they find out that their ice cream cone is really a cupcake and frosting in disguise. You can go for a classic scoop or opt for a fun soft serve swirl look depending on if you spread or pipe on your frosting.

You can even coordinate the flavor of the cupcake with the flavor of the frosting for a really fun treat. I just used my classic vanilla cupcakes and buttercream frosting recipe with tons of flavor variations.
