You’ll want to tag this recipe to your Pinterest boards. It’s the first of many I’m sure, so go ahead and make a separate board for the deliciousness to come. Princess Cupcake is a sponge when it comes to the Food Network and clearly it’s paying off. This is an untested recipe, but I do believe [Read More]
All About Cupcakes
Cupcakes are so versatile all you need is a little imagination and a sprinkle of fairy dust and you can whip up a batch of cute little cakes to suit any occasion. Don't believe me? Then check out the cupcake designs below. There's monkey cupcakes, Halloween cupcakes, cheerleader cupcakes - even crawfish boil cupcakes.
In my day job, I’m a marketing consultant helping companies make their mark. Sometimes that means I get to do fun things like have t-shirts made for my client’s 10th Anniversary Crawfish Boil. Aren’t they cute? Because it is not in my nature to arrive at a party empty-handed, I knew I had to take [Read More]
In Kindergarten at our school, there’s something universally dreaded among the parents and it’s called “book cooking.” Maybe “dreaded” isn’t the right word. It is definitely a day that we non-teachers are stretching out of our comfort zone. Each family is given a book to read to the kids, and a cooking lesson to lead [Read More]
The Princess Cupcake was a hold-out for tball this season.
Mermaid Birthday Party Cakes The hubs thinks I am insane. Three birthday cakes for the Princess turning 5. Seems totally logical to me: 1 – Her party with friends 2 – Her party at home 3 – Her party at school
Can I just brag on my bestie for a minute? Look at the awesome job she did with the graduation cupcakes for her son’s graduation party this past weekend. The graduation caps are mini-reese cups with cut Hershey’s bars for the top. M&M’s are on the very top for the tassles. She made the cupcake [Read More]
So the hubs comes home from work one night and says he has to take cupcakes to the office. “Say what? Why?!” “Because I’ve been bragging on your cupcakes and it’s time to put up or shut up.” Oh goodness. The pressure. What was I going to make? We had already past Valentine’s Day. It was [Read More]
So, we all know kids are weird, right. And funny. Who knows what is going on in their heads half the time. For sure a lot of what comes out their mouths is right out of left field. The funny things kids say can have me and my besties laughing our socks off when we [Read More]
Boo! Happy Halloween to you! I had some homemade marshmallow fondant in my refrigerator just begging to be used — and a pre-trick or treat gathering that needed a snack to share. And look what happened?! MUMMIES! These Halloween mummy cupcake toppers are super easy to make. Take you fondant and roll it out to [Read More]
We love Cupcakes around here. Evidenced in when my daughter announced at the age of 2 that I was to call her “Princess Cupcake” going forward. Our Sunday night routine would not be complete without watching the latest installment of Cupcake Wars on Food Network. But after our Cupcake is tucked in, the hubs and [Read More]
The Princess Cupcake started PS4 a few weeks ago, and along with getting a new teacher, a new classroom, there’s also a new room mascot. See, each of the teachers choose a mascot for their classrooms and ala Flat Stanley, the mascot spends an event-filled week with each of the students during the school year. [Read More]
The Princess Cupcake had her first experience with summer “camps” at school this year. She enjoyed “Barbie camp” (unsure what exactly this one entailed other than a coloring picture each day and a Barbie to play with while she was there), she LOVED “Books That Cook” where she read books with two of her favorite [Read More]
“Mommy, those look like APPLES!” That’s what the Princess Cupcake said when she came downstairs for breakfast this morning and saw our “snack” for the class. She was looking at these apple cupcakes that I made, at the very last minute mind you, for Teacher Appreciation Week. I wanted to make them a bit more [Read More]
We couldn’t forget our favorite teachers. For them, we made these cozy sock cupcakes. I should probably explain why the monster cards may seem a little out of character for the Princess Cupcake. Her class mascot at school is a monster and they’re all “little monsters.” Good monsters. You know, the Elmo kind. Anywayyyy… [Read More]
