S'mores Trifle

I was inspired this week by mistakes in the kitchen. They happen to all of us. Particularly those of us who are accident prone. Particularly those of us who are novice bakers. Particularly those of us who have such atrocious kitchen skills that they do not deserve to have blogs about things that happen anywhere near a kitchen. 

Did I mention that I cannot crack an egg? 

I actually can't do it. I spend a lot of my baking time picking eggshell out of egg goop. I would provide regular photographic evidence, but I'm petrified of getting egg on my camera. 

So if you are a poor egg-cracker like I am, then trifle is probably right up your alley. It's the place where all broken cakes get reincarnated into something beautiful and delicious. 

And if you have a chocolate broken cake, you can make a s'mores trifle.

Topper Tuesday: Butterfly Cupcakes

Cupcake toppers are a really easy way to dress up a cupcake. I'm always on the lookout for adorable ways to decorate for special occasions or just for fun. And of course, I'm always looking for really easy ways to do it.

It also makes a simple cupcake that I baked from a box into something special.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Bites

I know, I know. I said I don’t really love chocolate and peanut butter. And now I’m forced to eat my words. But it’s ok, because I’m chasing them with these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Brownies.

There is something about Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups that I can’t help but gobble up. Maybe it’s the sweet chocolate. Maybe it’s that special peanut butter texture that only Reese’s has. Maybe it’s the perfect chocolate-to-peanut butter ratio. Maybe it doesn’t matter and I’ll eat anything with sugar in it.

Coke Float Cupcakes

This is what Pinterest is for. For amazingly easy ideas that inspire you to actually go and do something. I think we are all a little guilty of pinning things that we want to do, but never actually think we will.

For further information, please see my organization tips board.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes

Oh Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Pretending to be cereal. Dazzling us all with your cinnamon sugary swirls. Fortified with vitamins and minerals so that we could convince our parents to let us eat candy for breakfast. Or convince ourselves.

I have a positive relationship with Cinnamon Toast Crunch: I’m positive that it’s the sugariest cereal known to man and I’m positive that I don’t care. So when I saw Your Cup of Cake’s Cinnamon Toast Crunch cupcakes, I knew I had to make my own. I had to. For the sake of humanity.

Cake Batter Rice Krispie Cupcakes

Oh yes. Cake batter. Rice Krispies. Cupcakes. All in one.

Rice Krispie treats can be hit or miss. I want my sugary square to be gooey and sweet, but still hold its shape. Nothing is more disappointing than a hard, crunchy, brittle Rice Krispie square.

There will be none of that, here.
