A Pink & Princess Party Weekend

Everything for this weekend just had to be pink and princessy. Two very good friends had birthdays this past weekend , Brooklyn turned 4 years old and Megs turned 24.

On Saturday afternoon, we went to Brooklyn's Princess party. I made a two tier cake with all of her favorite colors and topped it with a real crown and wand that she could wear and then keep after the party. The stripes and stars were coated in an edible glitter and it was super sparkly.

I also made Brooklyn's birthday gift...a birthday tutu with matching applique tee shirt to match. The birthday tutu and shirt were made to match the cake in shades of pink, purple and green. The party was super fun and princessy!

Later that night, we went Meg's Pretty in Pink Party Palooza. It was an 80's theme party and all of the party goers looked great. It was so fun!

I made some pretty pink cupcakes covered in edible glitter and provided a cute little place to set pretty little crown hair clips. Many of the clips went straight from cake to hair. Too funny!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween has to be my favoriet holiday. It must have something to do with Fall being my favorite season...or all of baking and crafting that comes along with it. Oh, and of course, the costumes. This year Austin wanted to be a knight, and after checking out the local costume store (much to our disappointment), I decided to make his costume myself. He absolutely loved it and wore all day on Halloween without one complaint. He was the cutest knight-in-shining-armor I have evr seen (but then again I am his mom).

Happy Fall!

I love Fall! It is my favorite season. I love the changing colors of the leaves, cool, sunny days, and everything pumpkin. It is this time of year that I get to make my favorite treat - Pumpkin Bars. I know so many people who are fans of these that I am posting my recipe so that you all can have them whenever you want. Pumpkin bars are super easy to make and are a favorite of almost anyone who tastes one!

4 eggs
1 2/3 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt

For Frosting:
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir into the pumpkin mixture until thoroughly combined.
3.Spread the batter evenly into an ungreased 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven. Cool before frosting.
4.To make the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in vanilla. Add confectioners' sugar a little at a time, beating until mixture is smooth. Spread evenly on top of the cooled bars. Cut into squares.

Oh... and I also had to post our newest Fall decor I made the other day. It's our new 'door wreath'. It definitely exudes Fall.
