Angel Food Cake Shot Glass Dessert

I've been seeing edible shot glasses all over the internet lately and I think they are awesome. I decided that for Valentine's Day, I'd try making an angel food cake shot glass dessert. I was going to make edible angel food cake shot glasses and fill it with whip cream and raspberries. Doesn't that sound fun? Well, my idea didn't go as planned! First I went to my local store and picked up some shot glass molds. I got home and quickly discovered that you can't use these molds for baking. I went back to the store and found out that you can only get the baking shot glass molds online (at least with that store). To Amazon I went to order my molds using Prime 2-day free shipping. Then I waited... I was so excited when the shot glass molds came in the mail! I hopped online to see if there were any tricks to help with making my angel food cake shot glass dessert, but found nothing related to angel food cake. That should have been my first clue. Oh well, I'd press on through … [Read more...]

Free Printable Emoji Valentines

Emojis are all the rage these days and my daughters are not immune to their appeal. Kiki thinks they are fun, but TJ loves anything and everything emoji. She especially loves the poop one. I'm not quite sure why. This year she asked if she could give out emoji Valentines at school. We searched the internet and found some free printable emoji Valentines, but none that contained her favorite poop emoji. So what did I do as an awesome mom? I made her her own Valentines! This isn't the first time I've made Valentines for my girls. Check out the Valentine's posts on this blog and you'll see some that have been a huge success and others that have flopped. Kiki's friends LOVED my fortune teller Valentines. But, an attempt at making invisible ink Valentines was a complete failure. For these free printable emoji Valentines I did my research. I looked up the top used emojis according to Google and my girls' iPods. Though the poop is not in Google's top 10, it is among the top … [Read more...]

Free Printable Love Libs Valentines

My girls are all about being different for Valentine's Day. They don't like handing out store-bought Valentines to their friends so I'm always on the look out for unique free printable Valentines. While searching the web, I came across cute Mad Lib Valentines where people had torn out pages of Mad Lib books and rolled them into Valentines to hand out at school. I thought to myself, hey, I can make my own! So, Love Libs Valentines were created... My girls thought these were so funny and can't wait to use them with their friends. To print your Love Libs Valentines just click on the photos below. They are meant to print on a half-sheet of paper but can be printed full sized too. Roll them up, add a ribbon, a tag, and a pencil and you've got a fun and unique Valentine to give to friends! … [Read more...]

Bubble Airplane Valentines

Ok, I admit it, I found these cute airplane valentines on Pinterest. The site, however, was not in English. I had every intention of copying the Valentines into an English tutorial using Life Savers candy instead of the candy this person used. Of course I would credit the original site. But then I went to the store to find Life Savers...Instead I found bubbles and Bubble Airplane Valentines were born... My bubble airplane valentines are similar to the valentines I found on Pinterest but in my opinion, these are a little more versatile. Why? Because you can print the writing on either side of patterned paper or on plain paper. You can also use blue toned bubbles and paper to make them more boy-ish. Bubbles are better than candy because you don't have to worry about allergies! 1) Click on the photos below to download them. 2) Print the wings on whatever paper you want, on the patterned side or plain side. 3) Print the banners on paper. 4) Cut the slits on the wing so … [Read more...]

aMAZEing Valentines

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that I love homemade Valentines. My girls have done Fortune Teller Valentines and Kool-Aid Valentines among others. This year we're doing Slap Bracelet Valentines and these Maze Valentines. Maze Valentines are nothing new. In searching the internet, we've never found one we really like though. Most we found, you need to attach an actual, small plastic maze to or, if the maze is printed on, it is cheesy. I decided to make my own for the girls. These took a lot longer to make than expected but we think they are well worth it. There are three different Maze Valentines and each one has a different maze. Just because your friend with the pink Valentine solved their maze, doesn't mean your friend with the purple one can copy it and solve their maze! Fun huh? Click on the photo above to download and print these aMAZEing Valentines for your kids. They won't be disappointed! … [Read more...]

Red Velvet Cheesecake Milkshake

Nothing says Valentine's Day like Red Velvet Cake and Cheesecake. Today we're combining the two into one super delicious Red Velvet Cheesecake Milkshake! I've seen red velvet milkshakes around Pinterest but decided it would be fun to add some cheesecake flavoring in. Just as I thought, my milkshake was rich in flavor and so good! I can't wait to make one for my girls when they get home from school. I think Hubby might even like these! You'll need five simple ingredients to make red velvet cheesecake milkshakes: vanilla bean ice cream no-bake cheesecake mix red velvet cake mix red food coloring milk optional whip cream for topping I'll admit, I didn't really measure my ingredients as I mixed them up. I never really measure for milkshakes. For this milkshake, I filled my Magic Bullet large cup with ice cream (3-4 scoops), added two large spoonfuls of cake mix and two large spoonfuls of cheesecake mix, then added a few drops of food coloring. I added milk to … [Read more...]
