So I have this awesome dog named Arthur.
He’s a Pomeranian and likes playing with his stuffed elephant, cuddling in bed while watching a Disney movie and eating treats! His birthday has passed (July 27) but that doesn’t mean that he can’t enjoy a good snack every now and then! Since he’s been such a good little man lately I made him some banana snacks. I followed the recipe from Live Love Pasta and Arthur loved them. =)
I adore little heart cookie cutters and made an emergency trip to Joann’s with a friend. The things I love most about this recipe is that it has ingredients that some of you may have on hand and it’s fairly simple to make. Needless to say if you have been wanting to show your furry friend some love lately – these treats are the way to do it!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find a new recipe for a casserole (preferably one with loads of bacon) and feed a few of these to my main man!

My latest adventure was creating frosted roses. I saw this technique from I am Baker and absolutely adored it! After executing this plan these were the results:
I was pleasantly surprised when they looked very well for the first go. All I used for this was a 1M tip that I received from Wilton. I fell in love with the icing tip when I realized how faster it was at frosting cupcakes and the fact that they look 10x prettier. My cupcakes were Golden Vanilla and Red Velvet. For the frosting I used Buttercream and Cream Cheese with purple food dye. With the cream cheese I found that letting them sit in the fridge for a while helped hold the rose effect on the cupcake. I had one out for a little bit after frosting it and it melted. =/ For the cupcakes I also used these as the papers:
I bought them from Michael’s but since they weren’t good with handling grease and other oils they didn’t show up pretty. I lived and learned and I will definitely be buying some that handle grease well so the cute design shows.

I’m extremely excited to start up this site! I decided to start up a blog and show how much I love baking! If I use a recipe from another site I will post the recipe and give due credit. Hope you grow to like my blog!
