Fossil Cookies



As part of his Dinosaur/Volcano Birthday, Spud also asked for cookies!  Given the theme, fossil cookies seemed in order!


These are some of the easiest cookies you can make, plus the kids can help out!  Start off with some sugar cookie dough (I used the baking soda option on this recipe), cut it into circles and press little dinosaurs into each cookie (kids love this part!)

Then, just before baking, sprinkle each cookie lightly with cinnamon sugar.  Bake as directed and you’re done!  They’re easy and cute!

Erupting Volcano Cake


Today I’m finally sharing Spud’s birthday cake from back in August!  I have absolutely no idea why I didn’t share it then, but at least we get to enjoy some warm weather photos in the middle of winter!



For his 4th birthday, Spud wanted an Erupting Volcano Cake with Dinosaurs.  Yep, he was SUPER specific!  I went back and forth for awhile about how exactly I was going to have that volcano erupting.  I kept imagining Junior High Science Fairs with baking soda and vinegar!  The problem, of course being that that would ruin the cake!


Eventually, I decided to use candy melts!  I melted some red and orange candies and spread them out on silicon mats to dry.  Once they were solid again I just stuck them into the top of the volcano!

Mickey Mouse Cake

Oh.  Hello.

Remember when I used to post here?

I have a whole lot of backlog, so I’m hoping to post on a more regular basis again (New Years Resolution and all).

Let’s start off with a super fun Mickey Mouse Cake!



This Mickey Cake was for a first birthday party.  I decided to do buttercream instead of fondant since the top layer was going to be removed and used as a smash cake!

Don’t miss the other Mickey cakes here and here…and the Minnie cake here!

Nerds Cupcakes {Cupcake Day}


It’s Cupcake Day!!

Today, a bunch of my blogging friends are all whipping up delicious cupcake recipes to kick your December off to a sweet start!

I thought about making some festive cupcakes, like my favorite Candy Cane Cupcakes or Snow Globe Cupcakes, but in the end, I went completely away from Christmas and raided the kids’ leftover Halloween candy to make these cupcakes instead.

Snow Globe Cupcakes


Ever since I saw these super cute Coca Cola Snow Globe Cupcakes from Bakerella, I’ve wanted to make some of my own.

This was finally my year.

This little Olaf cake was so fun!

Lego Robots Cake




Do you know any Lego fans?

Dude & Spud both adore Legos, and so does my friend’s son.

In fact, he’s in to Lego and robotics.
