Bunny Patch Raisin Wrappers

Posted on



am the first to admit that I make a lot of sugar laden treats. But just because I do, doesn’t mean I feed it to my children on a regular. In fact I try to give them next to nothing when it comes to sweets, because I would rather they develop a taste for other things. But I am not martyr here and they do enjoy treats now and again in moderation. When ever I get a chance I try to offer a healthier choice and these raisin box wrappers were a perfect opportunity to take an ordinary box of miniature raisins and transform them into a cute and easy Easter themed treat! I am also well aware that raisins have a lot of natural sugars, so please don’t feel the need to educate me mmmmkay!  

The box of raisins I used contained 0.5 oz of product and they had a few different brands at the store…all of the mini versions seemed to follow the same sizing standard. So all you need to do it print and cut out the images an attach them in the back using tape, double sided tape or glue of some sort.

There are 6 images per page and can be printed on any standard size 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. Since they are wrapped around something, I would suggest using regular old printing paper a opposed to card stock, since it is a bit on the thicker side and may not fold as seamlessly!

Please follow the link to print out the images!

Cute Spider Cupcakes with Bows

Posted on



I had so many plans for making Halloween sweets this year. My mind has been overflowing with ideas since late August, of all the wonderful treats I was going to create this year.

Now it’s almost Halloween and the only things I have posted have been about Ghost PoopMiniature Ghost High Hat Cupcakes and my failed version of getting a pumpkin image into the middle of a cupcake. So out of all the ideas I had planned and the 31 days of October I made three.

Three….1…2…3….that’s it.

I forget that with two crazy children underfoot that finding the time to actually create some of the ideas that swim about my mind is at times next to impossible. Any spare time I have is often used up by doing house work and side work.

So in reality the fact that I even had a moment to make three is pretty awesome. And on top of that awesome three I made, I recently made a 4th, go me!

My two year old attends gymnastics class twice a week, since she does not have class on Halloween, they were celebrating it by having a  party this week.

The parents were offered the chance to bring in sweets for their party, I opted to make something, since well, that’s what I do.

 

I made miniature spider cupcakes, and for the girls, some of them had big over sized bows.

They were really simple and easy to make and took no time at all.

This is what you will need:

  • Miniature cupcakes
  • Black Licorice string
  • White candies for the eyes (I used sixlets)
  • Black food marker
  • Fondant
  •  Butter Cream Frosting
  • Gel food coloring

Cut the licorice into strips and insert into the sides of the cupcake, they can be as long or as short as you prefer.  With your food marker draw in eyes onto the white candies and attach to the cupcake with a dab of butter cream. You could also pipe two eyes onto the cupcake and put chocolate chips into them if, you don’t have candies. Use what you have on hand and what works for you.

 I made the mouth by tinting a small amount of fondant yellow and rolling it into a thin strip which I then shaped into a smiling mouth. Once again you don’t have to use fondant, you could use butter cream to pipe the mouth or what ever else you choose.

I was going to make fangs and incorporate a lot of blood. But since they were for two and three year old children, I thought  it best to stick with  “cute” spider as opposed to scary bloodthirsty ones.

Note: It’s never a good thing to scare other peoples children, unless of course specifically asked to do so by the parents 🙂

For the bow I simply tinted fondant with orange gel food coloring. I cut it into thin strips and folded it back onto itself to make a bow. To finish them I wrapped a smaller piece of fondant around the middle part.

From the Ohhhh’s and Ahhhhh’s that sounded when these cute little buggers were given to the kids, I’m figuring they were a hit!!!

Tangled Inspired Rapunzel Cupcake Stand

Posted on



This is by far the most fun I have ever had making and creating a cupcake tower.

This Tangled inspired Rapunzel tower is all edible (minus the foam base) composed of Rice Krispie treats and tinted fondant!

 For those of you that would like to make this yourself, which I KNOW you totally can, the following  is an abridged version on how to make this. If you need any help or have questions, you can email me also.

To make Rapunzel’s tower I first made a batch of rice krispie treats, molded them into the shapes I would need and let them dry out a bit in order to hold there shape.

If you are unfamiliar with how to do that you can find information to make them {{HERE}}

This is what you will need….

  • Marshmallows
  • Rice Krispies
  • Fondant
  • Gel Food Color  (Green, Yellow, Black Violet, Blue, Peach, Brown)
  • Dowels
  • Pretty Ribbon to wrap base, I used a green gingham
  • 6′ Inch Foam Round(For the base)
Jut a little reminder, you do not have to recreate this exactly the way I did. Take some liberty to make it work for you with where you are at in your skill level and with what you have available to you in order to make it.

These are all separate shapes I made using everyday kitchen stuff to mold them. The bottom part of the tower was molded using a very large narrow drinking cup. The bottom portion was made using a cylindrical plastic holder I had. This is the naked tower, before all the fun began! I inserted a wooden dowel through the whole of the tower to help it stay stable,once it was placed on top of the cupcake stand.

To cover each piece, I first crumb coated it in butter cream frosting, rolled out my white fondant and carefully covered each piece. Since it is supposed to have a grainy, stone look, I didn’t smooth it out a great deal. I also made  hole through the middle of it, so that all pieces would align on the dowel.


For the bottom part of the tower I wrapped  half of it in a gray fondant (white tinted with black gel food coloring) since this is where the stones would go, and I didn’t want the white to peak through. To make the stones, I simply made two shades of gray fondant, rolled them into imperfect ball or varying sizes and squooshed each one flat. To attach I used a dab of corn syrup.

When this was finished I added on the middle part that Rapunzel’s tower rests on. With brown tinted fondant I simply cut out strips and rolled them up and attached them to the tower. I did basically the same thing for the tower portion, except they were straight strips and the rolled ones around Rapunzel’s window were just larger rolled fondant strips.


For the roof I use a sugar cone I coated in white chocolate and wrapped a piece of blue fondant  I rolled out . Then with a purple and blue tinted fondant I cut haphazard square tiles to build the roof tower.


I used mostly purple fondant, but randomly placed a blue tile every here and there to break it up a bit.

Since I have never made any type of fondant figures, I was terrified of making Rapunzel’s face. I was going to chicken out and just have her hair be shown, but took a chance and was surprised that I did so well. To make her face, all I did was roll out a ball and pinch it on top, rolled a really, really small ball for her nose and attached two pieces of black fondant for her eyes.

For her arms, I just rolled out a longer piece of fondant and shaped it to appear as though she was leaning on the ledge of her tower window. Her hair is simply, yellow fondant, rolled really thin and draped down the tower.


On the very bottom of the tower is a round piece of foam I covered in green fondant. I used it just to keep it all together. I placed a few rolled fondant rocks around the bottom of the tower and finished the whole thing off with a green gingham ribbon and purple fondant flowers.

Lastly, since this was a cupcake stand, I added in the cupcakes 🙂 Chocolate and vanilla flavored with vanilla butter cream frosting, adorned with purple fondant flowers!


This was the first of what I hope to be many inspired cupcake stands!!!

Hope you enjoyed this!!

Make Your Own Ghost Poop

Posted on


saw my first Ghost Poop treat bag a few years back. It cracked me up, because it’s funny, but also because it is soooooooo simple to make!  I’ve been making my own printed versions of these for Halloween ever since!

It seriously takes no time at all to make and is a great little treat!

With only a few items to assemble them and a few extra minutes to put them together, you can create a fun, easy treat to share a giggle or two.

This is what you will need:

Mini Marshmallows

Cellophane bags, for this specific template I used 4×6 Bags from Wilton. If you don’t have access to these type of bags you could always use a small ziploc bag as well.

 The template I made measures 4×3…it folds in half.

I use a free graphics program from Serif to make these, but you could use any graphics program to design your own OR You can print a copy out {HERE}

 After you cut them out, fold them over, fill your cellophane bags with a handful of marshmallows and staple the top…and Viola!!!! You have official Ghost Poop!

 These are great as Halloween party favors or even small little gifts for the neighborhood kids! I make them for my kids and give them out to their playmates as well! Because everyone loves marshmallows 🙂

 I hope you enjoy these. If you have any questions or just want to say hello to let me know you were here, please feel free to leave a comment below!

White Chocolate “Ghost” Hi-Hat Cupcakes

Posted on


It’s October, which means Halloween is right around the corner and with that comes so much FUN making goodies, goodies and more goodies! In honor of this spooky, yet spectacular time of year I made these for my hubbers and the kiddoddles

Miniature white chocolate hi-hat cupcakes, disguised as ghosts……because let’s face it miniature anything is just more fun!

I made miniature hi hat cupcakes about a month ago and have wanted to try them with a white chocolate shell ever since!

The whole ghost idea, just came about because of the Halloween season!

To make them I started with miniature cupcakes!

After they cooled completely I added the mounds of filling!

I actually made two batches of filling. The first (shown) are from the book Cupcakes! by Elenor Klivas. I also made another batch of filling using this recipe from King Arthur Flour. 

Let me tell you that the filling’s are very different, texture wise.

The marshmallow filling from the Elenor Klivas recipe is more dense with a marshmallow feel, where as the filling from the King Arthur recipe is much lighter, less sweet, but none the less delicious, it piled up higher, but was more delicate that the other filling. My hubby said they tasted like the “Chocolate Bells’ he used to eat as a kid when he would go to Brooklyn.

After the filling has set in the freezer for a bit, I simply dipped them into melted white chocolate.

And after that set I painted on the mouth and eyes!

Either way you choose to make them they are always a hit! You could ask my kiddoddles, they can vouch for them.

Hope you try these out, they always have such a “Wow” factor and are so much fun to eat!

Enjoy!
