Are you Ready for Some Football?

To be honest this Girl is not a huge football fan! If I were to choose a sport to watch it would have to be good ol' fashioned Boxing none of this UFC stuff. However I do like to entertain and themes are my favorite! So I am a good sport when it comes to cooking and having people over! Here is my menu for this Sunday. Hope your eats are just as good.

I love junkie type food and the hotter the better when it comes to wings. Especially if paired with a good stout beer to cool my tongue, Heaven.

Who doesn't love Potato skins?

Sweet and Salty Fries


Just cause they are cute!

Just because its Delicious!

Smurf Cake Pops and Cookies

Ok so i have been getting tons of emails on these little guys. Thank you all for your interest! Here is the couple of questions Im getting.

What are the faces made with?
I used make and mold chocolate white and dark chocolate, I just used the little make and mold bottles and drew the faces and ears on with the chocolate.

Hats and Hair?
The hats and hair I made out of marshmallow fondant

I hope this helps a little if anyone does attempt to make this little buggers and my best advice is:
"Patience is a Virtue." :)

Perfect Place Setting

Oh my gosh y'all, ever since Pretty Woman I have been a little intimidated by fancy dining. I often dream of having my very own "slippery little suckers" moment. At least with this Image the only thing that will stand out is my fidgeting and bad manners. I think a proper place setting is a dying art, everything has become so casual even the expensive stuff. So I am loving this nod to nostalgia.

The Grill

Sometimes I just get the urge to grill something. The smell of the grill and the outside just seems to call my name. I love to have a few people over, and watch the kids play, while eating delicious and juicy food; It sounds like the BEST TIME EVER!

I also have a new blog crush, and now is a good time to tell you about it since the images above are from their blog. Taste Spotting, not only does their recipes sound delicious but the photography is beautiful. If you love food you must check it out.

Beach Cupcakes

Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cream cheese frosting adorned with brown sugar as sand, a blue shark gummy and a drink umbrella. Everyone loved them. Off course there was tons more food but these were the crowd favorite. Plus I have a confession, I wanted to enjoy the birthday party so I opted just to do the cupcakes and food and left the ice cream cake to HEB, a local super market. Sometimes I just get so tied up in making cakes I don't get to have any fun when it is my family! Other cake bakers will understand! :) It was a blast. Happy Birthday Poppy.

The birthday Girl, She is three!!

Slutty Pregnant Belly Cake

 I was really busy this weekend getting ready and having my second daughters birthday party. So I couldn't possibly help out when my sister and law called and wanted a pregnant belly cake, for a baby shower she was helping out with. I felt really bad that I couldn't help, and even worse when she showed me what a local bakery gave her to mimic my cake that I had previously done for another shower. Y'all she was charged $112 for this.

The picture above is what she was given, the pregnant girl is wearing lingerie on this cake and it had nipples my sis in law took them off. The picture below is my cake, this is the picture they gave to the bakery to copy.

The bakery did the right thing by refunding her money, but my sister in law was for sure upset about this one!

It is no longer just about the cake. People are setting up swanky dessert tables that will fancy every sweet tooth. I love it, they are glorious, and perfectly suitable for a big event. No longer will we be forced to eat an outrageous cake flavor and pretend to love it. (Because it was so unbearable...) Now as a guest we can sample all sorts of delectable treats for such sweet occasions.

Society Bakery

We took a Mini Vacation to the zoo, nothing big just family time. It just so happened that it fell on my youngest daughters birthday, so what a great excuse for me to try someone else's stuff. After doing a little research and surfing the internet I decided on Society Bakery. First off I love the shop, everything a little Sweet shop should be, Quaint, Fun, Personable, and Delicious-from the first smell. There was a young guy who helped me and he was quite entertaining and funny. His description of each item I chose just made me want to keep adding more to my box, he was delightful, I hate it that I didn't catch his name. Everything we had was good, some better than others, but still good.

Oh my gosh these cookies were so huge we nibbled on them all day! This cookie I halved between my two kids and I was still able to eat their scraps. It was super yum and soft. 

Brownie- "The best damn thing I have ever eaten."
The brownie was not cake like which I have gotten used to, but do not prefer. This Brownie was most definitely fudgey! Loved It. After it was gone I couldn't stop thinking about it. I was sad that it was gone. Still sad:(

My husband ate the Bread Pudding Whoopi Pie. He had never experienced anything like it and would go back just for it. Huge thumbs up from him!

Petit Fours
I love petit fours in general and I usually look forward to having them. These were not my favorite, but everyone else who sampled loved them! A lot. I didn't get it.

We got one of everything they had over the counter for that day!
Just a Little Criticism- When I buy cupcakes and because I also make cakes, I not only want a delicious cake I want the Best Dressed ones as well. These were all yummy but the presentation was lacking. 

This Cinnamon Roll was Awesome, we didn't wait to demolish it for breakfast we had it that night!

Red Velvet in my opinion always a crowd pleaser. Yumm!

I loved this cupcake, but if you took the oreo of the top it wasn't really reminiscent of an Oreo. It more had the intense sweetness of a doughnut, Really Sweet. I loved it!

Besides the Brownie this one was my favorite. The Peanut Butter Icing was super I could have eaten it by itself. The cake was the same it had little chunks of peanut through out! It was something to talk about!

The other cupcakes were good, Cake was moist and Icing Sweet, nothing really to set apart they were just the generic strawberry, chocolate, and white. However I am forgetting the Banana Chocolate Chip which also deserved a picture but it came out to blurry so I spared you an eye squint. 

It was over all a wonderful experience and I would gladly go back!
