S'mores Year Round


Who does't love s'mores?  A wonderful treat.  All you need to do is. Mix up some of  your favorite brownies.  Put the mix in your pan. Mix graham cracker crumbs(Keebler), with a little butter, sprinkle on top of brownies. Soften up some marshmallow whip in the microwave, seconds at a time.  Place spoonful amounts around the bronwies.  Not a mess free process.  Bake for required time. However, you should check them often so the marshmallow doesn't burn.  These will come out gooey good.  After they have cooled add the final touch.  Yum!  Nutella!  Take desired amount of Nutella in a bowl.  Microwave also seconds at a time.  Once it looks ready to drizzle.  Drizzle, away.  
As always, Enjoy!

Super Size Hostess Cupcake Cake



Oh what fun!

Today is my sons 16th birthday.  Although he is off at a concert, we did a quick Happy Birthday before he left.  He has recently shown an interest in Hostess Cupcakes.  So I thought how fun to make him an over sized cupcake for today.  
Fabulous devils food cake baked in an over sized cupcake pan.  Cut out the center and filled with vanilla whipped frosting.  Topped with chocolate ganache.

Wonderful!

Sweet Elodie


This cake was not only fun to create, but is so special.  My sister Taylor, of Theglitterguide.com is the proud mom of Ms. Elodie.  She just turned 6 months old.  Although many may not celebrate a 6 month 1/2 birthday, it was special for my sister and her husband.  Elodie was born on Dec. 13, 2014, which was a Friday.  This past Friday was also the 13th.  So considering the rare occasion and that she is an awesome baby, why not celebrate.  

I created this fun 4 layer confetti cake.  The cake sits on a lovely green cake plate from Target, Oh Joy! This fabulous gold wire name topper comes from Kearydee at etsy.com/shop/kearydee.

To create cake you will need 4 cake pans equal in size.  I used Duncan Hines cake mix.  This one is white cake.  Mix, and add Smart and Final light rainbow sprinkles and cook per box instructions.  Let them cool. After each layer is cooled, take each layer over your sink gently rub the edge of your cake all around to get the golden color off so you can see your confetti.  Using a frosting tip of your choice, frost as close to the edge as you can.  I used Betty Crocker whipped white and strawberry frosting.  After frosting the edge I frosted an X across the middle of the cake to hold the layers together.  I didn't want to use a lot of frosting, so I didn't frost the entire layer.  Repeat these steps until you have added your top layer.  I frosted the entire top and added the same sprinkles around the edge.  
Lastly, sit back and watch all the eyes in the room light up with the excitement of seeing this cake for the first time. It's wonderful!

Maker's Mark Madness



Fabulous!
Wow, I went for it with these and had no idea how good they were going to be.  Devil's food cake, cut batter in half and added 2 teaspoons of Maker's Mark to the batter.  It gave a nice hint of the flavor.  I am gonna do it again.
