Cactus Garden Cupcakes

| Cupcakes, Desserts, DIY

Cactus Garden Cupcakes

I love the succulent and cactus trend right now for parties. Living in the desert it makes it an easy trend to follow! These cactus garden cupcakes are simple to make and adorable for parties. A cactus is really the only kind of plant I can keep alive so I am fond of them. Putting a couple of these simple toppers on each cupcake turns it into a little succulent or cactus garden. You can also use the toppers for other party foods like appetizers and cheese.

What you need to make them:

Prizm DIe Cutting & Embossing Machine

Beach Sandals Cupcakes. A fun dessert for summer and beach themed celebrations

I’m in serious need of some beach time. I’m sure we all are, am I right?! I used to live in San Diego but now I live in Phoenix. When it gets to this time of year I miss the beach. I just want to put my feet in the sand. For now I will have to settle for a pool. Even if I can’t get the real thing it is a great time of year for beach themed parties. These beach sandals cupcakes are perfect for summer and beach parties. They’re simple to make and you can bring the beach to you! I just love making(eating) cupcakes and needed to get my cupcake fix.

Bunny Cupcakes with Printable Ears

| Cupcakes, Easter, Printables

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!

Cute Winter Party Desserts

| Christmas, Cupcakes, marshmallow pops, Winter

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.
