Kiss Me, I’m Irish! Fondant Cupcake Tutorial

Do you and your family celebrate St. Patrick's Day? We don't usually do anything too big, but we definitely wear the obligatory green to avoid getting pinched and observe the fun holiday with some sweet treats! We, of course, must start out the day with some Lucky Charms cereal, whose marshmallow symbols always makes me think of the various superstitions that are associated with bringing upon fortune. On St. Paddy's Day, those who are unable to physically kiss the iconic Blarney Stone can … [Read More...]

Once Upon a Time Princess Fondant Cupcake Tutorial

Princess parties have to be one of THE most popular themes amongst little {and big} girls. I must admit I am surprised we have yet to have a royal bash in our home, but that might end soon, especially with the release of the new Disney Cinderella movie this month!

Nothin’ But Net Basketball Cupcake Tutorial

When my family and I were living in Northern California many years ago, we were huge fans of the local NBA basketball team, the Sacramento Kings, watching every game without fail. My mom was an especially avid fan, which seemed a bit unlikely, as she grew up in China and Brazil and up to that point, had been more of a soccer and car racing fan. But there she was ~ all five feet of her ~ yelling at the television and passionately cheering on our team! At the time, there was a fast food chain that … [Read More...]

Christmas at Downton Garden Tea Party

This post is spon­sored by Cost Plus World Mar­ket, but as always, all ideas and opin­ions are my own! Just prior to Thanksgiving, I posted about my excitement in partnering with Cost Plus World Market to throw a Downton Abbey themed par-TEA, while simultaneously binge-watching all four seasons of the show, consequently generating both good and bad news.
