"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.
 (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.
 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! :)
