Bunny Cupcakes with Printable Ears

Today I have really easy bunny cupcake with printable ears for you! The printable ears are a little bit smaller than these since these ones were about as big as the cupcakes. These little funny bunnies are adorable and very simple to make for anyone. Perfect for Easter. All I have left to figure out is an Easter basket. I made these cupcakes as simple as possible because I know how busy everyone gets with Easter egg hunts, making food and everything else for Easter. The fun thing with the printable ears is you can use them for other crafts! Use them with pom pom craft balls and googly eyes(yes, I always have to suggest googly eyes). You could also put them in an apple or any fruit to get your kids to eat some fruit! The possibilities are endless.

Game Day Desserts

| Cupcakes, Desserts, Football Party

Game Day Desserts for Super Bowl Sunday or a football party

With the Super Bowl right around the corner and the Playoffs going on I have been whipping up some game day desserts. This week I have a lot of game day fun to share with you all. I am extra excited this year for the playoffs and possible the Super Bowl since my team the Arizona Cardinals are playing in the NFC Championship. Being a Cardinals fan is not always easy but they have been on fire this season! Ok, I have to admit I am not a crazy fan that follows everything but I am an Arizona native so I am for the Arizona teams all the way. Whether your team is in the Super Bowl or not it is always a good time. I leave the grilling and most of the food up to everyone else. Although, I can make a really good cheese dip. I am all about the game day desserts and I’ve come up with some fun ones!

DIY Cupid's Arrows are fun for any Valentine's Day food and desserts

Love is in the air! Have you been shot by cupid’s arrow? I made these fun diy cupid’s arrows and shot them through some heart shaped cupcakes. You can also put them in other Valentine’s Day foods. Even health foods because apparently you can’t always have cupcakes. They are easy to make and really fun for Valentine’s Day parties.

What you need to make them:

pink or red paper straws

toothpicks

heart stickers

Materials for cupids arrow Making a cupid's arrow

Cut paper straws into pieces about an inch and a half long. Stick a heart sticker facing down to the top of on of the straw pieces and one facing down on the bottom of another piece of straw. Cut the top rounded part of the heart on the bottom piece. Then cut small slits lined up down one side and down the other.

Cute Winter Party Desserts

Cute Winter Party Desserts

I am still loving marshmallow pops for parties and these cute winter party desserts and marshmallow pops are perfect for this time of year! I’ve seen a lot of the melted snowman cookies but if you are short on time marshmallows are a yummy, easy alternative to cookies. You melt some chocolate melts dip marshmallows, add a few decorations and viola you are ready for a party! I made the snowmen and penguins for the marshmallow pops. I’ve done the penguins before as cake pops. These penguins are adorable! You can do black and white to make them more penguiny ;). I had extra blue candy melts so I am continuing with my blue penguins(I made blue penguin donuts that were super adorable). I also made easy white reindeer cupcakes. I know reindeer aren’t white but they look really cute and modern this way. It goes with the snowy look.

Thanksgiving cupcakes that look like savory Thanksgiving food but taste like sweet treats

Thanksgiving cupcakes are not the typical Thanksgiving food but it is nice to have something besides pie.I think every holiday is a cupcake occasion. I do love pie but I like to have a variety of desserts, in one sitting. I have a thing for sweets that look like savory foods. If you haven’t seen my hot dog cupcakes check those out too:  http://valeventgal.com/2015/06/hot-dog-cupcakes/ Everyone will love these cupcakes and be super impressed with how much they look like mashed potatoes, corn, and stuffing. They are easy to make and you can use store bought cupcakes to save time or use your favorite cupcake recipe. You could make one or all of these for your Thanksgiving dessert table!

Black Cat Cupcakes

| Cupcakes, Halloween

Black Cat Cupcakes - Val Event Gal

I’m getting ready for Halloween and what says Halloween more than black cats? Some people think of black cats as unlucky but I think they are cute! I had a mostly black cat when I was a kid. My parents let me pick out a cat when I was 5. Parents, do not let your kids get a pet unless you really want it to. My parents learned that the hard way. I named the cat Sarah because they told us it was a girl and I wanted a girl cat. Then we took her to get fixed and they told us Sarah was a Sam, meaning it was a boy cat. Then we called him Sammy. That cat was a bit of nightmare. He loved to bite and hated people. Most cats don’t like too many people but this one hated everyone. Except my mom, she spoiled him rotten and he loved her. In the end Sammy ended up being her cat. Seriously, don’t let a 5 year old pick out a pet they will never take care of it like they promise.  He was a pretty black cat though. I am not superstitious at all I think a black cat is just a cute cat. These black cat cupcakes are the perfect combination of creepy and cute! That is usually the goal for Halloween with a four year old a bit of creepy but still cute. My daughter thought they looked like owls, which you could do too just without the ears it’s an owl.

Unicorn Cupcakes with colorful hair - Val Event Gal

Woohoo it is unicorn week! I have been seeing so many cute unicorns around lately. My daughter is big into unicorns and my little ponies. It works out great because unicorns seem to be trendy right now. I personally am naturally drawn to bright colorful things and unicorns fit right into that. How can you not be happy when you see a colorful unicorn? If they don’t bring a smile to your face you might be dead inside. If only they were real! Since I can’t have a real unicorn I will stick to making unicorn cupcakes and decorations ;). These unicorn cupcakes are so adorable, I just love how they turned out! They are sleepy dreaming unicorns.

Cinderella Slipper Cupcakes - Val Event Gal

This weeks theme on the blog is Cinderella! I just had to make these Cinderella slipper cupcakes for the occasion. You can also make high heel cupcakes like this for a girls night, white ones for a bridal shower and I know a few ladies who would love these for their birthday! I must confess I am not much of a heels person. Yes, I love the look of pretty heels, especially the sparkly ones. However, my feet hate them and I am the biggest klutz on the planet.  I have fallen on my butt while wearing heels more times than I care to admit. Those who can’t wear heels make pretty high heel cupcakes! I love the light blue Cinderella color! I could also see hot pink or red for the adult ladies.

Pirate Party Desserts - Val Event Gal

Yo ho yo ho a pirate’s life for me! Maybe not a pirate’s life with all the pillaging and lack of bathing but a pirate party I can get on board with. Especially the pirate party desserts! This week my blog is having a pirate party with desserts, ships and sword diys. We just came back from Disneyland last week. Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favorite rides at Disney. It was also the only ride I took my daughter Keira on that she we afraid of. She loved the Haunted Mansion. For some reason she loves ghosts but the pirates were a bit too much for her. I wouldn’t be doing my job as a parent if I didn’t frighten my child a little at some point. She is going to need something to talk to her therapist about when she grows up(I hope you can sense my tone, I’m kidding). For the pirate party desserts I made pirate cupcakes arrgghh and treasure chest brownies.

pineapple cupcakes, cupcakes that look like pineapples pineapple shaped cupcakes

Pineapple cupcakes! By now if you follow my blog you will know I have a slight obsession with cupcakes! Yes, it is a bit of a problem but they are just so cute and yummy at the same time. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right? I have not mastered other desserts but cupcakes are just my favorite! I am also obsessed with pineapples they are just so fun and I love the pineapple decorations trend! I decided to make these cute cupcakes that look like pineapples. I also tried to make pineapple frosting but that failed. Instead I made a buttercream frosting with a hint of coconut. Buttercream is the best for piping. These are perfect for a pineapple party, a luau and summer celebrations!
