Honeybee Cupcakes


I’m popping in quickly today with these happy little honeybee cupcakes!



I wanted to take something fun with me to book club, so I brought some bright cupcakes that made me think of spring!

The cupcakes are lemon cake with cream cheese frosting.  Delish!

Minion Cupcakes & Lemon Cake


Who loves Minions??



I loved the minions in both Despicable Me movies, so when my son’s Cub Scout pack asked me to make minion cupcakes for their Blue & Gold Banquet, I was thrilled.  The theme was “Cub Scouts are One in a Minion.”

It was such a cute theme with some cute patootie minion cupcakes to go along with it.

The cupcakes were lemon cupcakes baked in blue cupcakes liners (recipe below or click for a gluten-free version and a boozy version).  They were lightly frosted in buttercream and then topped with MM fondant.  I had such a blast making the faces and giving each little minion his own personality!

TMNT Cupcakes


Where are my TMNT fans?

I’ve tackled TMNT Cookies and Cake, so it’s only natural that cupcakes would be next!



For these cupcakes, I took a more minimalistic approach add a blob of green buttercream for the turtle head with a little MM Fondant mask – with coordinating cupcake liners, of course!

Asteroids Cake


Who remembers the game Asteroids?

This year, my husband wanted an Asteroids cake for our combined birthday party.



I attempted to recreate the feel of the game console using a sheet cake with an angled round cake placed on top.


The cake was a Rich Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting (tinted black) with a few MM Fondant details.  I made the Asteroids and game score out of piped candy melts, however they broke so easily, that I’d use Royal Icing next time.

Teacher Appreciation Day Cookies


Since Dude started school, I’ve done everything I can to support our teachers.

My own background is in elementary education, so I have first hand knowledge of all that teachers do on a regular basis.

In addition to being room mom and a volunteer at our school, I like to show my appreciation for our teachers with cookies!

3D Easter Egg Cookies

It’s almost Easter!

At Eastertime, I just love 3D eggs.  They’re so classic and pretty!



This year, I wanted to re-imagine sugar eggs into cookies.

Gluten-Free Lemon Cake


Recently, I’ve been making more gluten-free cakes for friends with special dietary needs. 

When I first started, I simply picked up a box of gluten-free cake mix and made it as is.  It was ok, but not spectacular.

Then I started to try other gluten-free brands and picked up a copy of The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten-Free .  If you’re starting to cook gluten-free for yourself or for someone else, I can’t recommend a better resource.  It’s full of tips and tricks and includes a section titled “How to Bake Gluten-Free in a Gluten-Filled Kitchen”  (note: I’m not being compensated in any way for my review, I’m just really impressed with the book.  If you click the link, I may be credited through Amazon if you choose to purchase).

Once I got more comfortable baking gluten-free in my gluten-filled kitchen, and armed with a great resource, I started tweaking mixes to open up more flavor possibilities, such as the gluten-free lemon cake recipe I’m sharing below.
