Seriously... I'm in love!

I saw these "popcorn" cupcakes on www.bystephanielynn.com and HAD to share them with you guys. For a more detailed description on how to assemble them click over to her blog but they are pretty straight forward.



Step One.


Step Two.



Step Three.


Step Four. Mix some water and yellow food coloring and paint onto the marshmallows.


Step Five. Cut wrappers tall enough to just cover the cupcake liners.



I saw this post on Ellie's super girl birthday party at http://www.fromthetortoiseandthehair.blogspot.com/ and I have fallen in love with these 2 party ideas. Don't you just adore the little flag banner on the cake as opposed to candles!




And these hand illustrated invites are precious and such a simple idea! So easy to make with a scanner and photoshop!



Isn't this little super girl mask the cutest!



Saw these AMAZING looking cookies on http://www.whiskandaprayer.blogspot.com/ YUMMMMM!




Ingredients
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter toffee peanuts
1 cup peanut butter
ABOUT 3/4 cup mini marshmallows


Grease or line two baking sheets with parchment; put to the side.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grate cold butter into sugar. This makes it easier to incorporate, just use a cheese grater! Works well for pie crusts too by the way. Cream together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
Sift flour and blend with soda and salt; stir in with wet ingredients.

Mix in peanuts and peanut butter.

Using a cookie or ice cream scoop, scoop the dough and release onto your prepared baking sheet, leaving at least 2 inches between cookies.

Push a few marshmallows into the top of each cookie, shaping the dough around them so the dough almost covers the marshmallows.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown on the edges (if you make your cookies smaller, it may be more like 8-10 minutes).
