Flowers and Octopus Cake Pops

I am so excited! I feel like a "real blogger"! I was so excited when Better Homes & Gardens contacted me about doing a few tutorial for their website. Woo Hoo!!

I made some Spring Flower Cake Pops that have fondant petals and a green stem made with a green ribbon. It's an easy embellishment to add to your flower cake pops!

Try it out! 

The second cake pop tutorial that I made from BH&G was an Octopus Cake Pop!

They are very easy to make and add a fun character pop to an "under the sea" themed party. Make your cake pop, add your eyes, then set it down on some legs. They are so easy.

Head on over to Better Homes & Gardens to get these two great tutorials.

Little Cup's Easter Egg Cookies

My daughter wants to be a blogger like her Mom. Who can blame her? It's a great way to exercise her creativity. She's learning about food styling, presentation and photography. She loved it! 

Here she is setting up her props to create the scene she wanted.

Two Cup Tuesday No.67

Let's Celebrate!! It's Spring break for us :) I get to sleep in, relax and enjoy the nice spring weather we are having. My Mom decided to hop a flight from Hawaii to West Virginia. I am looking forward to taking a little break this week and just have a good time with my family.
I'd like to ask you all to hop on over to the NEW and IMPROVED Online Blog Con site. My team and I have a pre-questionaire we'd like as many bloggers as possible to fill out. We need some general stats so we can move forward with sponsors. We hope to have registration open May 1st.

I have posts all ready to go for Dieter's Downfall. Check out the amazing Ricotta Cheesecake I made. Then I sandwiched that cake between some Devil's Food Cake and topped it with some Vanilla Bean Buttercream. It was so good!

This weeks features are...

Whipped Coconut Cream

 Oh boy! It has been a week! I was gone last weekend and now I've been playing catch-up. Catching-up with laundry, the yard, cleaning the house, volunteering, baking, blogging, planning OBC, and trying to find time to read book 2 of the Outlander Series (I'm totally addicted!).

So, I'm a bit wiped out this week. I'm so looking forward to Spring Break and sleeping in for the next 10 days! To me, sleeping in is pure heaven and it totally makes me HAPPY!

Vintage Airplane Cake Pops by Cake Poppin

Jo from Cake Poppin' is back with another adorable cake pop tutorial for you. I love these little vintage airplanes and I'm kinda jealous that I haven't made any airplanes yet. 

It’s party season and these vintage airplane cake pops have been a hit this year. For a vantage toy baby shower or a travel themed birthday, these can be done in all shapes, styles and colors and are just the cutest addition to any dessert table…a fairly simple cake pop with a big effect.

What you will need:
Teardrop shaped cake ball
Cake pop sticks
Red melting chocolate for the body
White Melting chocolate for the accents
Gray melting chocolate for the propeller
Propeller mold
2 large heart sprinkles (per pop)
2 large circle sprinkles (per pop)

Blueberry Coconut Mini Pies

Spring has arrived in the Mid-Atlantic - the birds are chirping and the daffodils are blooming. I love this time of year. Everything, including myself, comes back to life. I can enjoy spending the afternoon outside pulling weeds and getting my hands dirty. I love it!

It's also the perfect time for no-bake treats. I admit, I use the oven as a way to heat the house up sometimes. I felt so cold this winter that I would stand in front of my oven when I was done baking and just enjoy the warmth!

3D Easter Egg Cookies for Simply Create

Easter is right around the corner. Are you ready? My daughter spent a chilly weekend in the house making some 3D Sugar Cookies. They are easier than you expect. No special tools or equiptment is needed. Just some time, good company, and some laughter goes a long way to creating some fun decorations. 

Head on over to Simply Create to check out my full tutorial on how to makes these fun cookies. You can even use them as place settings if  you add a name to them. How fun!
