Flower Basket Cupcakes

Flower Basket Cupcakes – These pretty flower basket cupcakes will dress up your spring table. They make adorable gifts for Easter, Mothers Day, or a spring birthday celebration. You can use any cake and homemade white frosting flavor you like. Canned frosting won’t hold its shape. I made these with lemon cupcakes and a double batch of my vanilla […]

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting – Once you make your own buttercream, you will never want to go back to the preservative-filled canned frosting. This is the best basic buttercream frosting. It takes just five minutes and five ingredients to whip together. Bonus; They’re all real ingredients that you can actually pronounce, no polysorbate or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil […]

Confetti Yogurt Fruit Dip

Confetti Yogurt Fruit Dip – There are three things little kids can’t resist; dip, sprinkles, and doing things themselves. Here we combine them to make a fun healthy snack. I tried this experiment with my three-year-old son, CJ. “CJ, do you want some fruit?” “No tanks, Mommy.” “Do you want yogurt?” “No tanks.” “How about we […]

Peeping Peeps Bunny Cupcakes

Peeping Peeps Bunny Cupcakes – Marshmallow bunnies peep out of their holes to join us for the Peeps Week finale! They may be a little nervous because Peeps Whipped Cream Frosting, Peeps Truffle Pie, and Caramel Coconut Peeps’ Nest all required melting chicks. Lucky for them, the bunnies stay whole in this easy kitchen craft. You can use any […]

Peeps Truffle Pie

Peeps Truffle Pie – This pretty Peep-topped-pie features fluffy Peeps whipped cream frosting and smooth truffle filling in a graham cracker crust. It’s like a giant s’more; a giant rainbow s’more!

How to Make Éclairs

How to Make Éclairs – You don’t need to have a tall white hat in your closet to be qualified to make éclairs. I admit, the pastry always seemed out of reach for me as a home baker. I figured I can barely pronounce Pâte à Choux, let alone make a pastry dough. Then I realized I […]

Rainbow Pretzel Sticks

Rainbow Pretzel Sticks – Sometimes I wish I could just reach out and grab a rainbow. I know there’s about as much of a chance of that happening as there is me finding a pot of gold. But with this edible craft, everyone can hold a rainbow in their hands. There’s just something about that […]
