funfetti cookie cake

I put on my apron and rolled up my
sleeves to re-create this Funfetti Cookie Cake that I pinned a couple of weeks ago.

I pinned this recipe thinking “I’m not really sure is going to work out like the picture.” Overall it was a fairly easy recipe, there is a homemade frosting that goes on this cookie cake and it sounded fantastic. However that was a big fail. I filled up my pipping bag and set it in a mixing bowl. When I came back the frosting had completely leaked out:

So I ended up using store bought frosting:

The frosting recipe was a big flop but the cookie cake recipe is AMAZING!

Here is the link to the recipe I pinned. I highly recommend the cookie cake recipe, it’s easy and tastes so good! Hopefully the vanilla almond frosting works for you!

graduation party favors

It is time to celebrate high school and college grads. I helped my mom make these cute open house favors this afternoon. They are super easy but a bit time consuming! You can personalize the colors to match your grads school colors!

What you’ll need:

  • Card stock (Use your grad’s school colors)
  • Ribbon (Use your grad’s school colors)
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Reese’s Miniature Candies
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ruler

Measure out 1.75 inch squares on the card stock and cut out the squares. These are the tops of the graduation hats!

Get your Reese’s candy ready:

Measure the ribbon pieces. Ours were approximately 1.5 inches long:

Now use the remaining card stock to punch holes for the button tops.

Heat up your hot glue gun. Place a drop of glue on the small side of the Reese’s candy and gently press the card stock square into place. Then place a small dab of glue in the center of the card stock, quickly set the ribbon and the hole punch on the glue spot. Then repeat.
