LOST Finale

For this momentous occasion I made marble cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting. I crumbled up some graham crackers and sprinkled the tops with the crumbs to make it look like sand. I made the numbers by painstakingly adding each individual sprinkle with tweezers.

I also made everyone a dharma beer koozie just for kicks:

All in all it was a fantastic ending to a fantastic show.

Feliz Cumpleanos Senorita!

I made some cupcakes for my bff4l's 23rd birthday this weekend.

They gave me a chance to use my kickass new cake/cupcake holder. Check it out, 2 layers and a popup lid. Simply amazing.

Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, and More!

I have been a very busy bee lately so I'll just share some bits of things that have been cooked up in the past few weeks.

First off I completely failed to share this lovely little fry fest I had a few weeks ago. We attempted waffle fries, but something just wasn't working right.

This year's Cinco de Mayo dinner included a pitcher of sangria and we brought out the quesadilla maker and whipped up some guacamole. I will add I cannot take full responsability for this meal I mostly ate it and barked orders.

I got some awesome ice-pop molds for my birthday and made some pineapple creamsicles. I just wish I had made these when it was actually warm out.

And last, but not least... Mother's Day dinner. We roasted up some chicken and various vegetables and made some cheesy pasta with spinach and artichokes. (sorry I failed to take pictures before we all started to dig in)

For dessert we made a red velvet cake with some balsamic strawberries and whipped cream.

And that's that!

Beer Bread

I got a bottle of beer bread for Christmas. All I needed to add was some baking soda and a beer of my choice. I had some Bud Light Golden Wheat on hand so I poured that sucker right in, take a looksy at it all bubbly:

And here's the money shot of the finished product:

I have no idea what the dry ingredient mix is made up of, apparently a lot of grains and "no fat." But I'm not really going to ask any questions because it was deeeelicious.
And with the remaining Golden Wheat, a taste test!

annnnd the winner is.... Blue Moon, shocking!
