Happy Halloween!

I decided to make some Halloween treats for us to bring tailgating for the LSU game. I made pumpkin spice cupcakes and pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes with buttercream icing. I also made some fondant flowers to use as decorations and added candy corn to the tops of some of the cupcakes as well. I also made candy corn bark and chocolate dipped oreos.

Breast Cancer Awareness

October is breast cancer awareness month so i decided to make some pink cupcakes to honor it! These cupcakes are pink lemonade with lemon buttercream in hot pink cupcake liners and adorned with pink ribbons (one with pink sugar crystals and one without). They were pretty good, not perfect, but good. I will still be working on my recipe. I also made a few little white chocolate dipped sandwich favors to go with it.

Amish Friendship Bread

I got my start from Hope for this bread and thought it was such a cute idea! I had never heard of it. You get the starting materials already mixed and squish it everyday until day five when more things are added. The daily squishing continues until day 10 when the same things are added and more of things that you want. I added pudding and chocolate chips. It was so good! 

On a side note, i am experimenting with my photography so hopefully my pictures look better from here on out than they used to!

My Charity Contribution

Not that i really contributed much, but i just had to share the big order i had that will be included in a gift basket at a charity event in Ohio. One order of 100 baking cups of everything i have in stock is what i am sending and i just had to take a picture when i started packing them in because of the beautiful colors.
