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.

This classic American buttercream frosting is my absolute favorite frosting ever!

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, candy and even play dough!!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.

Taste of Nature {Sponsored Post}

When you bakes all the time, or just have a huuuge sweet tooth like I do, it gets really hard sometimes to make healthy choices when reaching for a quick snack. I try to eat pretty healthy for the most part, but when temptation is calling my name, with no quick alternative in sight, it's all over. Apparently, I'm not alone, either. According to a recent national survey conducted by Kelton and sponsored by Taste of Nature, nearly all (98%) Americans snack, but nine in ten (85%) admit they find healthy snacking to be difficult.

Pin It

These homemade dog treats are not only soooo simple to whip together, they are so great because you can customize exactly what goes into them! 


The best part about this versatile recipe is that you can really customize the ingredients! I made peanut butter dog treats because my dog looooves peanut butter, but you can also substitute mashed sweet potato to hold the dough together instead of peanut butter if you prefer or have allergies in the family.
