Another reason to love my job....

Look at the treats they gave me on Valentines Day!!!!

Football Whoopie Pies

Continuing down the line of my ridiculously late blog posts....Superbowl Football Whoopie Pies!

I stole the recipe from Picture the Recipe

These were an absolute touch down with my crowd of friends. The hardest part is trying to get them evenly sized so they match up well after their cooked. I must say, these take much more time than cupcakes - so be prepared!

Anniversary Cupcakes

Back in December my husband and I celebrated 5 years of marriage! Crazy how quick that went. We went on a cruise in January and our family bought us a special anniversary package that came with delicious cupcakes. I certainly recommend giving someone the Royal Caribbean Romance package if you have any cupcake loving friends embarking on a cruise!

Tiramisu, if I do...

Wow, I couldn't be more behind in logging my baking adventures. Going back to new years eve, I decided to throw together a tiramisu for the festivities. It came out pretty well both times I've made this recently. I recommend using a decent amount of the coffee and liquor on the lady fingers to make sure they are nice an soaked. I also used a coffee flavored mascarpone.

I followed this recipe.

Grandma got run over by a super cute reindeer!

I wanted to make a cute Christmas treat for my sister in laws kids for Christmas Eve dinner. My husband hates full size cupcakes, says they’re too much and no one wants a full cupcake, um call me a fat ass, but a large cupcake is perfect in my book.

I decided on vanilla minis with vanilla icing. For the reindeer Christmas decoration I used a half a nutter butter, some pretzels for antlers, mini chocolate chips for eyes and a red M&M for a nose. They did come out cute, but they were uber time consuming and hard to get the pretzels to stick in the cookies. I actually had to widdle down the ends of the pretzels to make them about half their width and flat. I did about a dozen reindeer then had given up.

With the rest of the bazillion minis, I iced them with the vanilla icing then mixed up the remaining icing as red and green. We had another couple over for some wine that night and I pulled out the icing bags and cupcakes and it became a fun adult project. You could totally tell which one’s the boys did! I would definitely recommend this for your next girls night in.

This is a picture of the cupcake I used for inspiration:
