Lego Ninjago Cupcakes

It is no secret that I have a lot to learn about cake decorating. Nonetheless, I love to decorate cupcakes.

Those were all pretty easy for me. This year, however, he is […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes Made With Ambiance Coffee

I was recently challenged to make a non-drink recipe using coffee.  As you may know, I already use coffee in my chocolate pudding recipe but I had not used it in anything else. The first idea that came to mind was to alter the chocolate cake recipe that I make and substitute hot brewed coffee for the boiled water the recipe calls for. I took myself down to Smart and […]

Super Easy Flower Cupcakes

I love to bake and I can make a killer cake.  The only problem is, the cakes and cupcakes are usually very ugly because I cannot frost worth a darn.

I am a life-long Peanuts fan and I am so very excited about the new movie! To celebrate, I joined a fun group of bloggers to create Peanuts-inspired recipes and crafts.
