everything is better dipped in CHOCOLATE

A chocoholic myself, I do believe everything is better dipped in chocolate. Working on developing my menu, I decided to try graham crackers. Yum, yum, yum - these may be my new favorite. Besides the taste, the larger size (compared to an Oreo) opens up a lot more decorating options.

I recently got this fun mold of silly frogs in a bunch of different poses so I decided to try out the mold - this would be a fun favor for a garden party, baby shower (frog themed nursery) or for someone who collects all things frogs:

This teapot sucker would make a great party favor for a tea party to go along with a teapot cake

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Moms Night Out

We had a potluck MOMS club Moms Night Out event so I decided to try out a new recipe - cream cheese filled chocolate cupcakes with chocolate glaze icing. Rich chocolate cake with a hint of coffee and a center filled with chocolate chips and cream cheese filling - Yum! they were a huge hit. These will added as a premium selection to my cupcake menu.

So here's where I need your help - help me name this cupcake flavor:

PTSA quarter auction

Another quarter auction, this time with money going towards the Stetson Hills Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSA). I donated 2 items 1) a St. Patrick's Day basket of chocolate dipped goodies, chocolate shamrock suckers and a bag of St Patricks Day dark chocolate bark and 2) a pot of spring decorated chocolate dipped oreos (flowers, butterflies, ladybugs).

Lisa is a member of my MOMs club and she's expecting TWINS in April. Lorraine hosted a surprise shower for her this past weekend and I made the cake - chocolate buttermilk, white chocolate mousse filling, buttercream icing, hand-molded baby booties and a fondant bow.
