We went up to Connecticut for a Labor Day BBQ and I wanted to bring a fun dessert. I made yellow cupcakes dyed multi colored red, white, and blue with vanilla frosting dyed red, white, and blue. Very big hit! Everyone loved them!

This was a great cake! I had so much fun making it and it was quite simple. I made 2 6 inch cake rounds of dark chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. It's covered with white fondant to make it an igloo and the base is blue fondant for the water. The penguin is also made out of fondant.
Mini pigs in a blanked- crescent dough rolled around mini hot dogs. Very quick, easy, and tasty!
Pizza Muffins- Cut up pizza dough to fit in muffin pan, filled with pizza sauce, mozzarella, sausage, onion, and pepperoni. Yummy! It will definitely be made in my kitchen again. Thank you Martha Stewart!
Chris and I hosted an end of the summer luau at the end of August. I had never made chocolate covered pretzels so I decided to try that. I put fun tropical animal sprinkles on them like dolphins, sharks, turtles, and fish. These and my fruit skewers were my favorite items at the party. Both were very simple to make.
Wow! It's been a very long time since I've been on here. I made these Heavenly Bars awhile ago after I got back from Wisconsin. My mom got some as a deli near are cabin and told me I needed to figure out the recipe. I knew it was similar to a scotcheroo but there was this frosting type layer in the middle. I had a thought that it was vanilla pudding. Well, the recipe from betterrecipes.com is below but beware that it makes quite a bit of them and it's hard to put them down, hence the name.
