Cupcake art !

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I used my paint sticks again to create another piece of art. I didn’t know what I wanted to make at first so once again I turned to pintrest for inspiration. I decided to make a cupcake after finding easy step by step directions. I had a fun time drawing a huge cupcake with dots on it’s wrapper. The cherry on top is super cute. I’m glad that was included with in the instructions because it made the picture just a little better. I wonder what I will make next.

An interesting soda flavor and some beautiful cakes!

Hello, my bucket list friends! In my last post I talked about how I was a happy collector. Well there is another part of me that is happy at the moment and that is my sweet tooth! On Saturday I got some dragon fruit flavored soda. I was not sure how it would taste but it actually ended up tasting pretty good! It’s also a beautiful color. The one I had was Fanta brand but there may be other brands out there. I would definitely buy this soda again. Also I’m known to buy slices of cake and cupcakes when I go to the grocery store. Lately I’ve been impressed with the way they have been decorated. So many beautiful colors! Plus this one cupcake I got had plastic balloons on top! It was so cute and happy looking. I wonder what kind of soda of cake I’ll try next!

bucket list #142 make a perfect cupcake

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m so happy right now because I crossed another item off my bucket list ! I’m so excited to tell you about it ! Here we go !

 

bucket list #142 make a perfect cupcake

It was kind of hard at first to figure out what kind of cupcake to make since perfect is a matter of opinion . After some thinking I decided the prefect cupcake would have the following qualities. First they would need to be easy to make but they would also need include peppermint and my little pony decorations . I decided the best thing to do would be to use a box cake mix and then decorate the cupcakes with crushed candy canes and My Little Pony decorations.  I ordered two different kinds of My Little Pony cupcake decorations. The first ones that I ordered were cute plastic rings with My Little Ponies on them but after I ordered them it looked like it might take them a while to get to me. I decided to order  some other My little pony cupcakes toppers as well. These cupcake toppers were little tooth picks with ponies on top ! Buying everything else was pretty simple .Cake mix, frosting, and candy canes are pretty easy to find. Once I had everything I needed it was time to get baking ! Once I started to get everything together I realized that the vegetable oil in the kitchen was expired after searching the internet I found out that you could use butter instead .Then it was really time to get baking ! First I preheated the oven and then I put together all the ingredients as the box instructed . After I mixed everything together it was time to pour the batter into the cupcake pan  . I found some really cute cupcake liners in the cabinet that had balloons on them . After pouring the batter in the liners I put them in the oven and set the timer . After the cupcakes were baked perfectly I let them cool and then I put the rest of the batter in the oven .  When all the cupcakes were cooled they were ready to be frosted and decorated . The Cupcakes were very easy to frost with the premade frosting  and then I sprinkled the cupcakes with the peppermint that I crushed up . The last step was to put on the pony decorations. My cupcakes were really perfect and tasty ! I’m glad I crossed this fun item off my list .
