5 TIPS/TRICKS FOR MAKING GREAT CAKEPOPS!!

This diy comes from www.52kitchenadventures.com .  I hope this tips can help you out!!







The first time I made cake pops, I was pretty convinced that I would never make them again. It seemed to take forever. There are so many steps. To make matters worse, I was making peppermint chocolate cake pops, so after I dipped each one in white chocolate, I waited 30 seconds for it to set before rolling it in crushed candy canes. That added a lot more time than I’d anticipated. However, if you read this blog regularly, you know that I have actually made cake pops several times since my first attempt. They turned out to be so delicious and popular that I couldn’t help but try making them again. Each time, I discovered a new way to make it easier.
I’ve had a lot of people ask me how I make cake pops, especially without a cake pop maker. I’m not a huge believer in unitasker kitchen appliances, plus a cake pop maker just shapes cake into balls. In my opinion, a true cake pop is cake and frosting …

THE WORST AND WEIRDEST TOYS FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON!

What was the absolute worst gift you ever got as a kid? Forget about the cool toys that you totally wanted and, if you were lucky, found under the tree on Christmas morning.

Snowflake Sugar Cookies – Dress up your holiday cookie tray with some fun and colorful snowflake sugar cookies.



Snowflake Sugar Cookie I don’t make sugar cookies often, in fact I usually only make them for certain holidays and sometimes for birthday requests. I love the beauty and creativity of them, but they are massively labor intensive and I’m not the most patient person for baking projects like this.
But to save myself a step, I skipped flooding the cookies for the simple design you see in the picture. The royal icing I used is from here. It’s easy to work with and has the perfect consistency for simple lines like the one you see on these snowflake cookies.

DIY Printed Paper Pine Tree - Anthropologie Inspired Happy Monday friends!  I have an awesome tutorial to share with you, but first I wanted to wish my amazing fiance the best birthday ever today!!!  Also, we finally bought a new car!  It was fate I tell you!  I'd been looking for a Jeep this entire time, but every time I'd come across one that I loved, all I would hear was "It's JUST been sold".  I swear I kept missing these things by mere hours.  I was getting pretty fed up and about to just choose a car that I wasn't too keen on, until Dustin mentioned that a new Jeep had just come in as a trade-in.... but when he checked into it he was told it had already been sold!  Not again!  He just so happened to ask about it the next day and was told that it in fact wasn't sold and that the person who told him that was thinking of a different one.
