Chocolate cupcakes with Salted peanut caramel.

I came upon a recipe for some peanut butter cookies topped with a salted peanut caramel and I could not get it out of my head. But as usual, I had to find a way to put this in a cupcake, since I had to bring some to a housewarming party. Not too difficult of…

Halloween cookies (better late than never)

I made these for a pumpkin carving party a few weekends ago (ya I know more than a few). Please excuse the bad photos, I was late getting out the door and my two year old was not helping. So they basically got thrown on the counter and I took a few shots with my…

Peanut Butter Madness Cupcakes

That has to be about the only way you could describe this cupcake. As usual a group of us were talking about cupcake flavors in the locker room at the gym and peanut butter and chocolate was the overwhelming favorite. With a little help from Trader Joe’s, this masterpiece was created. I must say, this…

Mickey Mouse Cupcakes

Today’s post is just a bit of show and tell. I made these cupcakes for a friend’s son’s second birthday. He just loves Mickey Mouse, so I tried my best to make them cute. I think they turned out ok, had I found a good chocolate mold in time I would have used that instead. These…

Lemon Mascarpone Cream Cake

Time flies when you are having fun and boy have I already gotten behind here! So to catch you up; I now am taking a cake decorating class at a local cake supply store. I am a little disappointed with the format, its seems to be more about making a certain cake each week than…

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes

This is one of my husband’s favorite drinks, if you have ever seen it done its quite entertaining. You take a pint glass fill it half full of Guinness (note: Draft not Stout), take a shot glass add a shot of whiskey (preferably Jamison’s) and top it with Baileys. You then take the shot glass…

Three alcoholic beverages

Disclaimer, I do not have pictures of all of them yet. I know that is a sin on a blog but I can asure you, these are good, picture or not. As we head into the three day weekend I just wanted to share three of my favorite drinks. I promise to add photos later,…

Peachy-berry margaritas and a burger.

This summer has gone by so fast and all my efforts to get organized have failed miserably. I have numerous blog entries to put on here but in my frustration with my other blog and formatting I never posted them. So, now that I am using World Press, I will be posting things from this…

Oreo Ball Cupcakes

June 27, 2010 I must say these were a lot of fun. In an attempt to keep from overwhelming myself I broke the process for these cupcakes down into three prep days. The first day I made the homemade Oreo cookies, it was worth it. They are very good. Even my husband who is not…

And they’re off…

June 9, 2010 Well, here goes nothing, first official blog. I will throw out a disclaimer, I am by no means a professional writer nor even a good one. I am a very amateur photographer, so my cupcakes wont have that wonderful “I need to reach into the screen and grab you because they look…
