Father's Day Treats

These are my favorite things to make for Fathers Day. They are easy and so yummy.

This year I decided that the big burgers needed to have babies! And they are ohhh so cute.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there. Wish I could send all of you some of these!!

Chocolate peanut butter cupcakes

I will admit I have not had the best of luck with Martha Stewart's Cupcake Book. I have tried 5 different cupcakes out of her book and they all turn out differently then pictured or how I think they should taste. So I decided to give one more recipe a try. And to my surprise these little guys were heaven. I loved their taste and the peanut butter in the middle was awesome! The frosting is my own whip it together creation which went perfect with this cupcake.
So I am sure I will try some other recipes of her's again soon!

Baileys Irish Cream

Now when I went in to get the regular Baileys I use a lot in baking I saw this.. WOW, who knew they came in different flavors.. I sure didn't. So since the cake I was making had caramel in it, I chose to get this one and see how it tasted.
So this is the Baileys Irish cream chocolate cake, with Caramel filling and caramel on top!!

And this is what it looks like when you cut into it.. Look at all that yummy gooey Caramel.. Ahhhh.. I am in love with this cake. I was going to do a six layer one, but quite at 4.. and glad I did. This cake was huge.

Next stop will be to the decorette shop for professional 8" cake pans. I do not like the wilton ones I used for this cake..

Cake Pops

A very good friend of mine, Kelly, gave me the cake pop book this xmas.. So I decided I needed to put it to use.. Practice Practice.. is what I need when It comes to chocolate. Getting the temp right, how to make it smoother, just basic stuff like that. I have always kept the cake pops I do pretty simple. So for a bit, I plan on making different ones from the book to get in the practice I need.

Thanks Kelly!!
