Moana Number 4 Cupcake Cake

Hi guys,
Here is a quick guide for how I came about making Baby Magic's 4th birthday cupcake cake. Don't you just love cupcake cakes? I do. They are easy. you can form them into anything you want them to be and there is NO CUTTING! Makes for easy serving!

Disclaimer - I ordered the figurines from Walmart.com and they SUCKED! Moana is NOT Moana. There were a lot of paint transfers and some of them were disfigured so I couldn't use them. I opened the pack the night before to clean them and by that time it was too late.

I always draw out my design so I know what each section of the cake will be. I didn't take a picture (sorry).

Here is a tutorial in pictures.










This made my daughter happy, so it made me happy!


Here is a Paw Patrol cupcake cake I made for my friends' daughter earlier in the month. I forgot to take pictures before I iced it. And this is one that I ended up freehanding because my design wasn't going the way I thought it would! Nobody's perfect, but…

Custom Treat Bags - You Can Do It Too!

I've been seeing these custom treat bags float around the internet. My interest was piqued just a little. Then, I was in the Dollar Tree trying to figure out what I could do for her class that didn't involve me baking for 2 days. I picked up a pack of clear cellophane bags, put them down, and then picked up colored paper bags. I put those down too. I wanted to do something different.

I searched high and low on Pinterest and Google to find zilch that would help me. I was at the point that I was about to purchase a template from Etsy. There HAD to be another way. To YouTube I went. I found this video that included a FREE template. SCORE! I mean the one I was going to buy was less than $2, but I knew someone had to have something for free.

I downloaded the template, some Moana images from Google (thanks internet) and got to designing. I needed to have these bags completed the same day I decided to do this so I had to work fast. I designed them and printed them on my lunch break! …

Girls Trip Movie Review

Go. See. This. Movie!
It’s raunchy. There are a lot of curse words. There are a lot of sexual references. There is a ton of comedy!
This is an adult movie. Don't take your kids to see this one!




I seriously don’t know the last time I laughed so hard! This movie is HILARIOUS from start to finish! I’m going to see it again!
Tiffany Haddish rules this movie! We know all of the other leading cast members and they hold it down. Tiffany Haddish delivers! She has been on the scene for a long time! I love her in the Carmichael Show, and I’m sad that it’s ending. I hope that the success of this movie gives her the big break she deserves.
I can NOT not mention the beautifulness that is Kofi Siriboe! His breakout role in Queen Sugar showed us all of his God given beauty…but something about all that chocolate in New Orleans!!! WOOSAH! He too has had several smaller roles but is now being recognized for having a lot of amazing...talent!
I also must acknowledge what seems like the resurrection …

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
