Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcakes


Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcakes

And here it is after the frosting and decoration! It's a vanilla cupcake with the strawberry cream cheese filling and whipped, cream cheese frosting. I decorated the top with pink crystallized sprinkles and edible pearls. These are to die for!

Strawberry Cream Cheese Filled Cupcakes - Preview

Below, is a picture of the cupcakes after they had been "plunged" and filled with my homemade strawberry cream cheese... but before icing or prettying them up. The filling tastes great, and isn't too sweet since that's the job of the frosting!

Winner Of April's Giveaway And Review

Greta D got her batch of goodies in the mail today, and she left a post on the Facebook page this evening:

"I got my goodies today and everything is AMAZING! When I order I think I need another assortment because I can't have just one!"

Thank you, Greta, for entering the giveaway and leaving such a wonderful review!

Mango Coconut Bread

This bread sounds a little different, but oh my! I tried a slice, and the next thing I knew, I was trying to find someone to hide it from me because I had just about eaten the entire loaf by myself. With fresh, pureed mango and shredded coconut, it's incredible regardless of whether you eat it warm, at room temperature, or chilled.

Fudgy Peanut Butter Coconut No Bake Cookies

I made these the evening of Christmas Day this past year, along with hot apple cider for my husband and I. It was our first Christmas as a married couple, and I wanted to do something memorable. So, cookies it was! These were really gooey, set very well, and were super yummy :)

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

To be completely honest, I don't like sour cream. The only things I'll eat sour cream with-- and actually think they taste good-- are strawberries dipped in sour cream and then rolled in brown sugar (yes, I thought it sounded strange until I tried it), and these sour cream sugar cookies. However, with these cookies, you don't taste the sour cream. It just helps to make them light and fluffy. 

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

In honor of Mother's Day, which is coming up really soon, I decided to take my homemade cream cheese icing and color it pink and purple. Regardless of whether you actually put icing on these cookies or not, anyone that has eaten these delicious cookies will tell you that they can't just eat one. They are so addicting!

Sittin' Pretties (aka Sitting Pretties)

I remember year after year, at Christmastime, spending hours and hours making these cookies with my mom, and then eating so many of them! These are my all-time favorite cookies! They are probably the most time consuming to make, but the payoff is huge once you taste one :) Some cookies, once you've eaten a bunch of them, leave a sugary aftertaste in your mouth... like you need to brush your teeth or drink a glass of water or milk. However, these are not like that. The only way I can describe these, is that they have a "clean" taste to them. 

Sittin' Pretties (aka Sitting Pretties)

If you're wondering what this cookie is, it's a buttery cookie rolled in almonds and topped with a dollop of homemade cream cheese icing and a peanut M&M

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've been baking up a storm the last few days, and in the process, have had to make a few trips to Sam's Club, Walmart, and Publix for supplies. It's the busiest I've been in a while, but my heart couldn't be happier. I've made Chocolate Chip cookies, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies, Molasses cookies, Red Velvet Cheesecake brownies, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip cookies (pictured below), and the dough for Sour Cream Sugar cookies and Sittin' Pretties. To top it off, I'm in the process of making cream cheese icing right now while I let the cookie dough chill!

I hope you'll take the time to look through the menu and think about ordering for Mother's Day, which will creep up on you sooner than you know it! Remember that all the listed prices include shipping and local delivery charges.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Second attempt at making these absolutely amazing brownies. They taste just as great, but look more appealing since I got the cheesecake consistency smoothed out. 

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

I was told by one person that had them that I was "going to be a millionaire one day, just by selling these."

"...I received the brownies in the mail. They are amazing! I have been eating one every day since. Thanks!" - Tim N

Mandy's Molasses Cookies

I know that there aren't many people who make these cookies anymore, but you know what? They are yummy! So, I looked up and tried a whole bunch of different recipes for molasses cookies. But alas, I didn't quite like any of them. They were too crunchy, didn't have the crackles in the top, didn't have enough spice in them or had too much, were too flat, or just plain old didn't taste right. So, like the creative person that I am, I threw all those other recipes out the window and made my own! And since then, I cannot tell you how many amazing compliments I've gotten on these... even from people who aren't particularly fans of molasses cookies. Below, is probably the best and funniest compliment that I've gotten on these:

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Pumpkin is probably one of my favorite things ever. Too bad it's mostly seasonal, unless you find the right grocery stores at the right times that carry it at random times! I've made pumpkin bread and muffins for years with my mom, but had never attempted pumpkin cream cheese muffins until almost two years ago. This picture is from my first attempt, and they turned out perfectly! So yummy... I had to give them away to friends to keep from eating them all myself :)

Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Cake

Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Cake

The picture above, is the very first ice cream cake I ever made. I made it as a surprise for my husband's birthday last April. In all respects, it was an experiment. Thankfully, I've had enough experience through the years baking and creating with my mom that most of my experiments turn out pretty well... including this one. It's three layers: Strawberry Ice Cream sandwiched in between two different kinds of Vanilla Ice Cream, with Strawberry Preserves and crumbled Vanilla Wafers on either side. For this one, I used actual frosting (which gave me a run for my money). I found that I had to layer the frosting much thicker for it to stay on. Otherwise, it wanted to slide off the sides. Overall, it was a really fun first experience, my husband was pleasantly surprised, and his stomach was happy!

Since it turned out so well, two weeks later, my best friend asked me to make an almost identical one for her mother, who was coming into town for her birthday. They didn't want nearly as much ice cream cake, and they aren't fans of frosting, so I modified it into a two-layer and used Cool Whip instead of the frosting. Besides cutting production time, I found that using the Cool Whip made my life so much easier! It's also less "in your face" sweet than the frosting is, which can be good depending on your taste.

These thirty cookies auctioned off for $110! Don't worry-- if you want these amazingly yummy cookies, you won't pay $4/ cookie.
