If you have visited my bloggy before you might know I like candy melts. I like making cute desserts and most of them don’t involve a ton of baking or complicated baking. I’m a shallow baker like that because it has to look pretty. Luckily when you work with something like candy melts it tastes yummy and they are really easy to work with. These chocolate firework pops require zero back and are really fun for the 4th of July! If you want to do some baking you can use them as toppers for cupcakes. You can also buy store bought cupcakes(I wont tell) and top them with these fun fireworks!

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.
If you have visited my blog you probably know that I like to make some random things. I just have weird ideas pop into my head and try to make them. That is basically my blog in a nutshell. I wanted to make some s’mores because s’mores are always a fun summer dessert but I had to make the s’mores into something cute. These pink pool float s’mores are really adorable for summer parties. These are like the old school pool floats not the new fancy ones. I like the new donut pool floats because donuts but I have a special place in my heart for the older pool floats. The ones as a kid we used to make into a ride with pretend shark attacks. I don’t know if that is a thing my sister and I just did or if everyone did that as a kid. Anyways these are really cute and easy to make for pool parties!
I love baby showers and being in my early (clears throat) 30s I have been to quite a few over the last couple of years. I personally am a big fan of themes and I just love to see the creative themes people come up with for baby showers. I know some people aren’t as in to themes but they really help to tie everything together. I love to do something beyond the typical baby boy theme. You really have to mix it up and bring the moms personality into the party. Think about what she’s interested in and go from there. Here are a few unique themes I have helped out with for family and friends.
Marble chocolate pops are beyond easy to make and look how pretty! I don’t always follow along with the trends but I do like the marbling trend. I thought what better thing to marble than chocolate! I tried marble nails just for fun once and it was a horrible fail. I really cannot for the life of me do nails. We all have our strengths I guess. You can make these in pop form like I did or just marble with different shapes in molds. The possibilities are endless! Choose a couple colors to go with any theme party. I thought these colors would be perfect for a gender reveal party! I would suggest white and two other colors. You can use two to three colors of chocolate to get a good mix of color.
I love spring time, in Arizona we get a short spring but I love it while it lasts. Seeing flowers bloom inspired me to make some cute flower desserts. I’m don’t have a lot of time for actual baking right now so easy no bake flower desserts were the way to go. How cute are these flower pudding and pops! The flowers are made with salt water taffy and you really can’t go wrong with salt water taffy.
What you need to make the pudding cups:
salt water taffy in bright colors
chocolate pudding cups
Spring time is coming! It is the time for baby chicks, bunnies and flowers. I have some of all of those things on the blog. Many in dessert form ;). Including these baby chicks in a nest donuts. I really love this time of year and I am having a blast getting ready for Easter. Luckily these little donuts are so easy to whip up for Easter or spring parties. Tweet, tweet the baby chicks are ready to party. I almost feel bad eating these little cuties because they are so adorable. Almost but they are also tasty!
Life can’t always be rainbows and unicorns but sometimes it can. If you have adorable rainbow donuts with marshmallow clouds it can! Also unicorn cupcakes like these cuties http://valeventgal.com/2015/09/unicorn-cupcakes/. I like to bring as much rainbows and unicorns into my life as possible. Adulting is hard and so is being a parent. Sometimes you have to make your own rainbows and I prefer everything in donut form ;). They are also sleepy like I am most the time. Rainbows and adults deserve naps. These little donuts would be perfect for birthday parties, St. Patrick’s Day, or slumber parties.
I love cake pops. Once I discovered the cute things you could make on a pop I was obsessed. The problem with cake pops is the time it takes to make them. You have to make the cake, roll the pops, refrigerate them, dip them and decorate. Yes, the results are worth it but they just take a long, long time! I have tried cake pop makers they just turned out too dry. Using donut holes to make pops is a great alternative because they taste great(uh, duh donuts) and you can still decorate them and make them cute for any occasion! These ridiculously easy chocolate covered donut pops are amazing and ridiculously delicious!
Birthday cake donuts with buttercream glaze are amazing! It is like a birthday cake in a wonderful donut bite. This is the perfect donut to make for breakfast for someones birthday or just for fun. Everyday needs a little birthday level of celebrating in it and donuts. With these donuts you can cover them with buttercream glaze or drizzle a little layer over it. I have been on a huge donut kick lately mostly with cute donuts like these penguins: http://valeventgal.com/2015/11/penguin-donuts/ . These birthday cake donuts are amazing for the donut lover.
