Sometimes you just want to make chocolate covered guitar marshmallows or is that just me?! These little rock n roll marshmallows turned out insanely cute! They are a perfect, simple dessert for a music lover’s birthday or rock n roll party. A music theme is such a great party theme because everyone loves music. I am definitely partial to acoustic guitars music. That’s the kind of music I like to listen to when I make my little treats. I also like to play music that goes with the theme of what I’m making. It just makes the process more fun! Dancing is an important part of my creative process as well.

In our house there is a lot of pink! It’s just me and my daughter, which means girl time all the time. Ok she’s not just into the girl stuff she also is obsessed with Star Wars. Dresses, pink, and Star Wars, they go together in our house. We also love princesses and dress up. Really pink candy can be used for anything girl. For kids and adults, I know a few adults that still love their pink princesses! We made this simple pink princess candy bark that anyone can make. It was half me and half my daughter and she is five. You may be able to tell what parts are her because of the excessive amount of sprinkles but it all looks so pretty. There just aren’t enough pink desserts out there. We had to change that.
I always want to do cute things for back to school for my daughter. Then suddenly back to school creeps up on me and I haven’t done anything. That is why I have decided this year to try a few simple ideas for back to school. These fruit roll up apple pops are an easy snack. Kids will love them because duh they are fruit roll ups and they look like little apples, what’s not to like?! You get bonus mom points and you didn’t really have to make anything, score! Perfect for lazy moms like myself. Well not really lazy more like who’s got time when you have to get kids ready for school that take an hour to pick out socks. Not to name any names ;).
I am on an ice cream kick this week and what could be better than an ice cream sandwich bar?! This is an easy dessert bar for guests at a summer party. I love bars for parties. You can have mimosa bars, taco bars, bar bars, sandwich bars, candy bars and many others, the possibilities are endless. What I love about a food bar is that people get to choose how they want their food because everyone likes it a little bit different. It is also less work for the host. You put out some ingredients and you are done! The best kind of bars involve sweets in my opinion.
Ice cream is one of my favorite desserts. In the summer it is number one on my list! This is the time of year to indulge in sweet treats. Swimsuit season is halfway over go crazy ;)! These are perfect little bites to serve for a group or just to make with kids. You can eat just one and not feel too bad because it is smaller than a normal ice cream sandwich. I loved how the Oreo ice cream sandwiches turned out and will definitely be making them again. They were really easy to make but they did take longer to make than to eat. That is my problem with desserts they seem to just disappear.
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.

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.
