Cupcake Friends…ACTIVATE!

So…I was flickring through some old flickr pics today, and I found a couple of cute cupcake friends that I had made a while back, and thought I would share them.

The monkey and pig cupcakes were for my nephew Nathan’s birthday party last September, and the bunny cupcake (below), was from Easter of this year.

So fun!

Cupcake Pops!

This Saturday, I decided it was time to make the infamous bakerella’s cupcake pops!.

It was a long process, filled with some lumpy chocolate debacles…but after all was said and done…they came out pretty great.

I used mint chocolate for the bottom chocolate coating, and colored white chocolate for the pink tops. Inside, there is a delicious devil’s food cake filling. YUM!

If you have some time, and you love to bake up tiny cute things…I highly recommend giving these a try.

Thanks, Bakerella!

Roasted Yellow Squash

My brother gave me some fresh yellow squash from his garden the other day. They were calling out to me, so I decided to make a healthier alternative to my Grama Dee’s infamous buttered squash. This is what I decided on. Simple and tasty. Yum!

Roasted Yellow Squash
Recipe from Julie Foxworthy

INGREDIENTS:

Yellow Squash
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Wash and slice your squash into 1/4″ slices
  • Lay them flat on a jelly roll pan
  • Drizzle olive oil over the squash, add salt and pepper to taste, then flip them over and repeat.
  • Bake at 350ยบ for about 20 minutes, or until desired doneness.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    The Darth Maul and Dark Knight cakes!

    Yesterday, my 3 nephews (kyle-14, nathan-11, and jack-6) and my dad, all had their birthday party in a beautiful park in Linden, MI.

    The boys had put in a request for me to bake some special cakes for them. In particular Darth Maul (from Star Wars), and a “Dark Knight” themed cake from the new Batman movie.

    So Friday, I took the day off of work and just spent the day bakin’ it up!

    My fiance, Christopher, (a Star Wars illustrator), came in very handy when it came time to do the serious decorating. His skills with a paintbrush and an exacto knife were amazing.

    Take a look for yourself! They were a HUGE hit with the boys, and everyone at the party. YAY.

    Check out the whole set off pics on my flickr here.
