Relief Society Birthday – Forget Me Not Cupcakes

The women’s organization of our church is called Relief Society. It is the largest (and I believe longest-running) women’s organization in the world and this weekend the 170th anniversary celebrations were held. Several women attending were asked to make cakes for the occasion. I did cupcakes because I prefer to make them (wayyyyy easier and less stressful for me). It Read More…

Easy Rosette Sugar Cookies

When I was pregnant with my first son I dreamed of decorating cookies for the holidays like I did with my mom and grandma. It is always a good time when frosting and sprinkles are involved. Finally the time came for me to do it with my own kiddos. But as luck would have it every single sugar cookie recipe Read More…

No-Bake Cheesecake Fit For the Worlds Greatest Dad

Usually for Father’s Day I make a fun tasty treat for the men in my life, well, mostly just for my man and whoever else is coming over. This year I thought I’d do one of his favorite desserts, cheese cake. This was my first time ever making one when it wasn’t in a box, and I know it might Read More…

Easy Frosted Ombre Rose Cake

A while back I saw the perfect idea for a cake to do for my sister over by Amanda at I Am Baker, one of the blogs I stalk. So I decided I would add my own little twist with the actual cake because an all pink center just seemed to fit my sister, also known as Aunt Rose to Read More…

Chugging Along

I was just looking at a bunch of my favorite blogs thinking about all the fun stuff I haven’t posted yet. I have a ton of projects done, pictures taken, in the works and ideas that are all coming along s-l-o-w-l-y. I just wish there were more hours in the day but I try to remind myself about sticking to Read More…

Halloween Treats

This year I made Halloween treat plates. Partially because I just was itching to try some new treats and partially because I don’t know if I will be doing one for Christmas this year. It sure is going to be a busy holiday season. I am doing a number of holiday bazaars and craft shows and I’m so excited. A Read More…

3D Car Cake

When I asked my soon-to-be-three-year-old what kind of cake he wanted he said “a car cake”. My mind raced (no pun intended) and at first I was thinking of maybe just drawing a car on the cake or something. Then I looked up ‘car cake’ online and holy cow. So many great ideas! I saw a bunch of great stuff Read More…

So close! Getting graduated.

Sorry for lack of posting! I have a great explanation. Once upon a time, there was a beautiful, talented, smart, hard working girl who attended a fantastic university. Off she went to Bolivia to be a missionary for her church and upon her return a wonderfully charming man stole her heart and together they went to finish their schooling. Well, Read More…

Ahhhhhmazing Cupcakes

Ever wonder how to make great cupcakes? I sure have. While I was visiting my step-mother-in-law, I watched her make some simple, and beautiful cupcakes. I was memorized watching her and I even got to do a couple myself. It was then I vowed to learn to make some of these beauties. So I decided to do a practice batch Read More…

Death by Chocolate Cake Recipe

One of my favorite things to do is try new recipes, though I don’t have much time to try them as often as I’d like. But when special occasions arise I like to take the time to make something special and try something new. So when my hubby’s b-day came up I couldn’t pass on these two because if they’re Read More…
