Today is Easter Sunday and feeling in the spirit, I decided to make these adorable bunny Peeps cupcakes. I wanted to share with you how I made them so that you could make some for yourself either today, or even after the holiday has passed (I mean look at them). That’s year- round cuteness in my opinion. So, to make these delicious treats I kept it very simple and used boxed cake mix and store-bought frosting, but you can make them from scratch if you would like! However, if you want to make them exactly how I did, then here is what I purchased:
1.) Pillsbury Moist Supreme Classic Yellow Cake Mix
2.) Pillsbury Funfetti Vibrant Green Vanilla Frosting
3.) Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter eggs
4.) Two packages of Peeps (pink and purple)
5.) Easter themed toothpicks
After gathering all of your ingredients, the recipe is very simple. Bake your cupcakes according to the box instructions. Allow about half an hour for them to cool. I already had a disposable icing bag with a tip to make the appearance of grass, but if you don’t have this you may need to go purchase one. There is the option of just frosting the cupcakes normally as well if you don’t want to go for that grassy looking effect.
Now, gently separate your Peep bunny from his bunny friends and stick a toothpick in the bottom of him (I know sounds harsh). Push it into him just far enough where it won’t stick out from his top and place him into the cupcake using the toothpick piece sticking out. For decorative effect, you can add a fancy Easter toothpick in his side if you would like. Finally, place two eggs next to the bunny and you’re done!
Sometimes it can be hard to find a good healthy snack. Personally, I know that I get bored sometimes with what is already in my house and I want try something new. This snack is not only adorable (I’m a sucker for anything remotely cute looking), but it’s also super filling and simple to make!
All you need to do is grab a piece of whole wheat toast and spread a decent amount of peanut butter on it. From there, take a banana and cut it in half. Cut off one of the banana halve’s end pieces to make a nose for your bear. Then take cut two pieces from the opposite side of the banana to make ears. Now, grab three blueberries and arrange eyes and the tip of the nose on top of the bear. You’re all done! (:
Want to have your bear as a lunch instead? Make a 2-3 more for a yummy mid-day treat.
Recently, I have been wanting to try something new for breakfast and decided to make these rainbow pancakes this morning. They are simple to make and my little sister was in love with the way they turned out.
Start by making the batter just like you would with regular pancakes using either a store bought pancake mix, or from scratch. Any mix will work, it really just depends on what your preference is. Once the mix is in batter form, separate it into six different bowls evenly. Now, you’re going to need food coloring in the colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. HOWEVER, many products in stores only provide colors: red, yellow, blue, and green (super annoying). So, you’ll have to mix red and yellow for the color orange, and blue and red will be mixed to make purple. I added 2-3 drops of each color to each batter and thoroughly mixed.
Now make the pancakes on a skillet like you normally would, but one color at a time. HUGE TIP: Try very hard not to overcook the pancakes or the color will be overshadowed by the brownish burnt color of the pancakes. In rainbow order, stack them on top of each other when they are done cooking. I used butter, confectioner’s sugar, and syrup as a topping, but use whatever you like. Done! Enjoy (:
Music festival season has arrived! As many are already aware, the season begins in March and ends in August in the United States. Several of the most popular upcoming events this year include: Ultra in Miami, Florida (March 28-30), Coachella 2014 in Indio, California (April 11-13 and again on April 18-20), and Electric Daisy Carnival in East Rutherford, NJ (May 24-24). For a music festival expert like Vanessa Hudgens, picking out an outfit is probably close to second nature.
“I love Coachella. I go every year. You get to take your shoes off, run around like a crazy person and have flowers in your hair. It’s just amazing… I love being barefoot, dressing up and listening to music that I love” the star dished to Chelsea Lately in an interview back in January.
However, the rest of us that are not “festival regulars” might need some wardrobe assistance!
Start the outfit off with some festive shorts. I found that Dolly Girl Fashion has some amazing choices and very reasonable prices. Bold shorts, like the ones featured above, go best with a simple color top like these pieces that I found from Delia’s and Fashion Union. Still think the outfit needs a little something extra? Throw on a Kimono like the ones I found from New Look. They’re light and airy-perfect for all that walking and dancing around! Finish the look with a Forever 21 flower crown and a fringe purse like this one from LookBook Store and have a great time! (:
Valentine’s Day will be here soon! Whether you’re dressing up to go out with the girls, a boyfriend, or just because, V-day is the perfect excuse to get pretty and treat yourself a little. I picked out a few dresses to help inspire you. My favorite way to wear a dress is to keep it classy, while showing a little bit of skin. I personally feel its more attractive this way, because your eye focuses on something like an open back, or a little shoulder, more than if the whole outfit was completely revealing.
The red dress is from Forever 21 and it is called, the “Clear Cut Textured Skater Dress”. The pink number is from Fashion Union and it’s called, “Lara LOVE Cold Shoulder Pleated Dress”. The name of this next dress is so cute-“The Black Swan Dress” and that one is from Goodnight Macaroon. The last dress is from River Island and it’s called, the “Grey Daisy Jacquard Bodycon Dress”.
