I found this recipe online and it's so yummy and easy. You will never need to buy Reese's at the store again! I made the big cupcakes the first time and then this weekend I made a whole bunch of the small cupcake size. I like the small ones better, they stay around longer because there is more. :) Here is the link to the recipe. http://havecakewilltravel.com/2008/08/29/pb-cups/ I did not use the salt and I put them in the freezer to harden, which made the process go faster.
About a month ago I went to an open house for a local Doctor's office. They had this amazing cupcakes there and as soon as I tried the cherry lime one, I knew I needed to recreate it. So the thinking began..... I wanted to do a white cake with lime and cherry frosting. I started hunting around on the internet for different way to flavor the frosting and also I wanted to make the white cake from scratch. This is where I found the cake recipe http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/tender-white-cake-recipe For the frosting I did a basic buttercream and doubled it. To one half I added grated lime and the juice of limes, I kinda just taste tested until I got want I wanted. For the other half I added juice from a jar of Marciano Cherries because I couldnt find an cherry extract at Freddies. The cherry taste was good but a lil weak. I, now have a bottle of Cherry extract for the next time. I made 2 9" round putting the cherry buttercream in the middle and lime on the outside. I added some cherry buttercream on the outside for decoration and my creation was complete. It was quite tasty! This was my first cake from scratch and I was quite pleased.
I've been wanting to make one of these for awhile now. And every tutorial I found on them. Weren't quite what I was picturing in my head. So...I made up my own, and am quite happy with how it turned out. Obviously it would look cuter if I had a little girl to put it on... I don't have a little girl to model, but I do have the right sized, little... Oh Brady................. Just kidding I wouldn't put it on my son. Well, I wouldn't post a picture of him in it, on the Internet anyway. lol!
You can have the straps crossed like in the picture or just straight down. I'm working on some matching bloomers they will probably be the solid blue color. And some booties, oh and a matching hair accessory.
Check out this cute rag flannel blanket. I got the idea from a pic I saw on facebook. I wasnt sure how wide to cut the strips so i just guessed. The strips are 7 inches by 36 inches. Once I sewed them all together, they fit quite nicely on 1 yard of the white flannel, there was just a couple inches of the width of the white flannel that i had to cut. I found this so much easier then doing squares as I am new at this sewing thing. The nice thing about flannel is that is frays so well. I cant wait to make another one.
