Cupcake How To's and Blooper Christmas Photos...

The April Fool Birthday Cupcakes for my son turned out awesome! His friends were giggling and asking how I did it. They wanted to know how I got the candy to look just like veggies! Here are a few pictures of how mine turned out....

Here are some of the veggies waiting to be put on the cupcakes

For the pork slivers....either pink tootsie rolls or pink starbursts...microwave for about 4 secs and then roll and cut

Same directions w/the yellow starbursts for the scrambled eggs

Carrots were orange starbursts cut in cubes

Scallions....green twizzlers cut ......

For the broccoli florets....take a green tootsie roll or green chewy jolly rancher and make a slit halfway down the top. Pull apart to make branches. Take your white icing and tint green. Pipe some on each branch tip and then roll in green sprinkles! Viola....broccoli

For the Fried Rice....Tint the white icing w/cocoa powder and then microwave for a few secs until it pours....mix into your rice crispy cereal. Ice the top of the cupcake w/some of the leftover beige brown frosting. Then take 1/4 cup of the frosting rice crisp cereal and put on top of each cupcake piled high to look like fried rice. Decorate w/some veggies!

I can't wait to try more of the April Fool cupcakes....

Miss Starbucks, but don't miss the dent in your wallet....

Well if you have some whipping cream and caramel topping for ice cream then you've got yourself a

Caramel Macchiato! HMMMMM yes I had this w/my banana nut muffin this morning!


This weekend I had the kids in the yard trying to take pictures for our Christmas cards...I have never laughed so hard in all my life. The oldest child was afraid I would go into labor from all the crying and laughing! Lily was a hoot...she actually dressed in the tutu I made for the girls and actually held the sign I made for each to hold! Although sometimes she would hold it for only her to see! I had such a fun time....here are some of the bloopers! (look at the expression on the oldest face #4 and 5...he said he's too old for this....ummm too bad!)

Shannon over at Persnickety Pages and More (the girl who rocked my blog design) is also doing Christmas cards! She rocked my card once again! Head over quick if you want a different card other than something you see on Shutterfly! I'll post my photo after it comes in!!!
