Beach Cupcakes

This is how I made these beachy cupcakes!
1- Bake any cupcake.
2- I made Wilton decorator frosting (because it holds well) and I dyed it blue with Wilton's food coloring gel. A little goes a long way!
3- I took some Teddy Grahams and put them in a Ziplock baggie. I smashed them up with a meat tenderizer. You could also use a food processor or blender to do this. 
4- I made three styles- one is covered in all crushed Teddy Grahams for the beach, one is half beach and half ocean, and the other is all ocean.
5- I used Gummy Lifesavers for the floats and the Teddy Grahams are the people. I stuck some drink umbrellas in also. 

Happy Summer!

Molten Chocolate Lava Mini Cakes

I know I haven't been a very good blogger. I have been baking, I just haven't been posting enough. I plan to get back into blogging about what I bake a lot more!

I made these Molten Chocolate Lava Mini Cakes using the Pampered Chef Floral Cupcake Pan. They were amazing! You can probably make them as cupcakes also. Using the Floral Cupcake Pan was an added bonus because they came out pretty. I got the recipe from the Pampered Chef's website. 

I suggest that you serve these right after you take them out of the oven because as you bite into them, chocolate oozes out! It is delicious! I served some a few hours after I baked them, and there was no ooze. But they were still good. I sprinkled some powdered sugar on them before serving.

I definitely plan on making these again.
