Penguin Cupcakes

| Cupcakes, Desserts, Winter

Cute Penguin Cupcakes

My daughter is obsessed with penguins! Here bed looks like the stuffed animal arctic. She is building up quite the penguin collection. I think it is so adorable. The only problem is she wants to go see penguins in their natural habitat and I had to break it to her that’s not going to happen. She wants to see those emperor penguins waddling in the wild. We are Arizona girls I don’t think I could handle the cold and it would be quite the impossible trip to visit penguins in Antarctica. When I was in South Africa there were penguins and they were the cutest. Hopefully someday we can visit the beach dwelling penguins! That’s more my style. I get cold when it is 50 degrees.

DIY Disco Ball Cupcakes

| Cupcakes, Desserts, New Years

Shiny Disco Cupcakes

Time to get this party started! Who doesn’t love shiny disco balls? I personally use disco balls to decorate my desk but that’s just me. These disco ball cupcakes are a fun and easy cupcake for New Years or other shiny parties! A disco bridal show would be fun too! I served them on a shiny tray I made with sparkly washi tape. You can make any kind of cupcakes and all you need to do is add white frosting and some silver sanding sugar. You can also make them in gold or pink like the disco balls shown above. I think I will do pink next! These are really fun to eat while watching the ball drop on New Years. Although, I often don’t make it up that late the sugar rush might help!

Easy Mini Winter Treats

| Candy, Christmas, Desserts, Winter

Edible snow village

I love winter time when it snows and the trees are covered with snow. It is the best and of course building snowmen! Last year we went up north to Flagstaff to the snow, I live in Phoenix and we have to drive a little bit to get to the snow. When we were there it snowed like crazy. My daughter absolutely loved the snow! We tried to build snowmen but we could not get the snow to roll into a big ball. I don’t know if my snowman building skills are rusty or if the snow was just too fresh. To celebrate winter coming I made some easy mini winter treats. Sort of a mini snow village with mini snowmen and winter trees. These winter treats turned out adorable. They were also incredibly tasty, Reese’s are my favorite. No baking involved here and really fun to make with kids.

Easy Snapchat Filter Rice Krispie Treats

| Desserts

snap chat filter treat

I’m a little late getting in to the hole Snapchat thing. That’s usually the case with me and anything technology related. Partly because I’m in my early 30’s and in bed at 9 every night. I don’t always know what the cools kids are doing. Once I found out that Snapchat has all of these fun filters I realized how fun it can be. I still don’t know how to do everything with it but my daughter and I love the filters! There don’t seem to be a lot of Snap Chat party ideas out there yet but I am sure it will be a big trend soon. These Snapchat Filter Rice Krispie Treats are incredibly easy to make for guests at a party. I made Rice Krispie Treats covered them up with some Fruit Roll Ups and that’s all you have to do. You can even buy already packaged Rice Krispie Treats.

Simple Turkey Chocolate Pretzels

| Desserts, Thanksgiving

Turkey chocolate covered pretzels

When it comes to Thanksgiving desserts I definitely always have to have some pie. It’s not my favorite dessert ever but it’s a Thanksgiving tradition. My daughter on the other hand will not touch pie unless maybe it is chocolate and has tons of whipped cream piled on top. I also add an excessive amount of whipped cream, it runs in the family. I wanted to make a simple Thanksgiving treat that my daughter would eat and could help make. These turkey chocolate pretzels were the perfect Thanksgiving treat for her! She helped with dipping the pretzels in the chocolate and putting on the faces. I like to make a fast dessert that doesn’t require a lot of patience to make. My 5 year old has more patience than some kids but that still is not a lot.

These ghosts ideas from around the web have something for adults and kids.
