"Manly" Cupcakes - Going Away Party

What Man Doesn't like Snickers?!

Today we went to a
 Going Away party for our cousins.
They are moving to Alaska.
David-
 (Ryan's cousin on his Dad's side)
is in the military.

Although, we didn't get together that often
 it was nice knowing they lived so close.
But...on the bright side...
I hear it's beautiful there!
Maybe we can come and visit them sometime. ;)

_____________________________

Because I knew there would be
 a ton of guys at this event
 I decided to make a "manly" cupcake.

And, seriously,
what guy (or girl) doesn't like Snickers?!

I mean unless they're allergic
 to peanuts or something...
I guess they aren't worth dying for
 but they are darn good.

Finding a good snickers cupcake recipe
 was much harder
 than I thought it would be!

So, I made what I thought
 a snickers cupcake would taste like.
~~~
White cake with Peanut Butter.
White Butter cream frosting.
Carmel and Peanut filling.
Drizzled with Milk Chocolate
and pieces of real snickers on top.
~~~
And,
 it was really good.

4th of July Goodies!! (Cupcake Flag/ Chocolate Strawberries)

Happy 4th of July!!!
Here are some goodies I made to celebrate!

Mini White Cupcakes-
 with Blueberry/ Strawberry toppings
and Buttercream frosting

Although, not exactly correct.
 I didn't have enough room for another red line :(
Still noticeable as an American Flag.
Isn't that adorable!-
 I smiled pretty big
 when they came out of the oven!





And, next we have
 White Chocolate Covered Strawberries, dipped in blue sugar.
Very cute and festive!
I decided to put them in a red take-out box.
Not only are they colorful but it made transporting them really easy!
 (I wish I would have had time to decorate the boxes too... ehh next year.)






Well, that's all for now-
but I will leave you with a couple pictures from our celebration.



If you're wondering,
The one with the yellow water wings is mine...
And, so is the cute guy behind him ;)

I hope everyone had a
 wonderful weekend and holiday! :)
