Halloween Cricut Cut Treats......

This week on the FCCB blog their challenge was to create a purple monster (although my purple in the pics looks bright blue for some reason...its purple I promise:)). Well it just so happens that I had to make some Halloween cupcakes so it tied in nicely. These took some time to make but were so much fun. The cartridge I used is the Dress up Doll many cute things on there with endless possibilities....enjoy the pics.

If you want to see some other things I have done please visit my facebook here

mmmmmm where do you belong...Gryffindor???

I love the Harry Potter films although I have not seen the latest one yet. So I was thrilled when I was asked to do Harry Potter Cupcakes:) There are soooooo many things you can do...sorting hat, scarves, bertie botts, chocolate frogs, spell books, wands and the list goes on and on. 
My friend gave me a new recipe to try with these involved pumpkin and cocoa....yum. The frosting turned out very wet though and so the fondant wasnt too was melting and sliding in the car....eeeek. My poor husband(I was driving and he was holding the cupcakes)and I was um"saying" nice things to him like"HOLD IT STILL" and a few other things too:)
We got there fixed the cupcakes and then started some pumpkin carving which we be in another post:) Enjoy the pics....

Robot Fun

These guys were made for a Robot theme. I used the cricut machine for the little robot cupcake picks on the one set of cupcakes...they were a yummy vanilla cake filled with strawberry preserve and strawberry frosting:) the "parts-o-robot" cupcakes were chocolate filled with carmel and cream cheese frosting and fondant toppings. There were so many endless possibilites for these...colors shapes sizes...You could make any robot you want.  To add to the fun I made cake pops with vanilla cake and vanilla frosting. The lemon bars were wrapped up and given in a cute little cricut cut bags for favors. I used the cricut machine for various other things the baby sign...the 3D robots and little cut signs for the food.
