Summertime Cupcakes

All the Young Women were over at my house last night for our last camp activity of the year aka Camp Wrap Up.  We had dinner, a short program, swimming, cupcakes and then watched our camp movie and a good time was had by all!  It’s not a Young Women activity without treats so I … Continue reading

Licorice Flags

The Young Women from church are coming over tomorrow for breakfast and swimming and since it is the day before 4th of July and since treats are what I do, I thought I’d make them a 4th of July treat to take home with them.  I found the idea on a blog called “Sweet Simple … Continue reading

S’mores Cupcakes

Girls Camp is next week!  I’m in charge of the food so I’ve been working on that all last week and now this week too.  Last night we had our last camp activity before we actually head up to the mountains so I thought some S’mores Cupcakes were in order.  I got these cute little … Continue reading

“Up” Cake Pops

Cupcakes on Edible Pedestals

On Wednesday it was “New Beginnings” for the young women at church which is our kickoff for the year.  I wanted to make something special for them so when I saw this edible cupcake stand, the decision was easy!  The idea comes from a blog called “Best Friends for Frosting” which you should check out … Continue reading

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

And the final treat incentive for the girls at church!  Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!  So easy and so delicious, I can’t even tell you how many of the leftovers I have eaten.  The recipe is from a blog called “Heat Oven to 350”. 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (which happens to be exactly … Continue reading

White Chocolate Mint Fudge

Another incentive for the girls at church.  Follow the instructions carefully even if it doesn’t look like the fudge is going to turn out right, there were a couple of times when it didn’t look quite right and I almost threw it away but I just kept going and it turned out delicious in the … Continue reading
