Use this template by printing it off, placing it under parchment, then melting chocolate and pouring it into a plastic bag with a tiny slit in one of the corners. Slowly pipe out the shapes onto the parchment paper then let dry and decorate cupcakes or cake with them. I hope this comes in handy! Do it in any color of chocolate you like.Right Click it, then save to downloads or copy and paste in pages. Click on the image to see cupcakes that I did a bit ago! They have chocolate hearts on them.
Everyone says home-made is best-made, and most of the time I agree. Everything is better when it’s home-made, except apparently cupcakes. I’ve tried dozens of recipes for yellow or white or vanilla cupcakes but they just don’t have that gourmet, moist texture. The flavors are delicious… if only we could get that texture.
Wish me luck! Box mixes won’t cut it when I have a bakery so I better start working hard! I’ve decided to experiment with a basic recipe, but add some of my own tweaks as well… more later!
I’ve decided to enter a Family Fun cake contest for kids’ birthday cakes. Not a huge, high-end one, that I actually have to sign up for, just send in a picture of a cake that is original and they may or may not publish it. $100 bucks to anyone who gets their name in the magazine too.
For now I’m thinking toddler themed. No cartoons or characters, most likely animals -maybe jungle- tea? Kitties?
There are millions and millions of different types of tea out there! Loose leaf, iced, bagged, green, black, white, red, flavored, and much more! I like black and green tea equally as well. Well, I’ll give you a little background on how I got into tea.
My mom got into tea in her early adult years, and had tea parties and things just at home with us kids. She always made special treats, or even simple ones, and we had fancy everything! Scones are her specialty, but she also loves tea! About a year or two ago, she got an adorable children’s book published called Teatime Tillie and started giving tea parties at local libraries for fun with me and my older sister helping her!
No, not falling from the sky. From Above. From Jesus. The one thing that most changed my life was when my little brother was born. Then my little sister too. At nine years of age, I was at the point of life where I could remember details of life. This was definitely a big detail. I had prayed to God, asking for a baby brother or sister, so that I could become a big sister. He answered my prayer and gave me a gift straight from above! Now, at 14 years old, I realize even more how precious life is and cherish it so much. My little brother and sister are now 5 and 4. The years have flown by! I still remember the call from the hospital when my little sister was born. Not when my little bro was born though. Close to midnight, we were so groggy that we don’t remember it! I say we, because I have two older siblings as well, a brother and sister. Thank you God!!
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the Heavenly Lights. James 1:17
There’s nothing more relaxing than a cup of tea in a cool library enjoying the companionship of others. As lots of people say- there is never a book long enough or cup of tea large enough to suit me.
My mom hosted a teen tea party at the Delano Library last summer based on the book The Teashop Girls. I’ve read the first and second books, and they’re really good! I attended this tea party (instead of helping serve like I usually do) and we had a great time tea-tasting, eating yummy food, and doing crafts! It was a really cute and summery fun table setting, and I think people enjoyed it. I know I did!
