Ice Cream Cupcakes

This is a super simple way to get your Cupcakes to look like Ice Cream Cones, without having them fall over in the oven or while frosting them.

I used chocolate cake box mix and frosting from a jar. My cupcake pan has seen better days. 
Get your cake mix ready and set aside. Cut strips of tin foil and surround the cones in your cupcake pan so they stay up and don't budge. 

Pour the cake directly into the cones 3/4 full and bake according to the package or recipe directions.

Let cool and frost. I added some fun sprinkles too to make it look more ice-creamy. 
If the cake runs over the side, it looks like real ice cream dripping down the cone.

I actually had a box that I cut holes in the bottom of to display these with.

Yellow Baked Fries

This recipe can't be any easier, plus they're really delicious too.

4 to 6 Yellow Potatoes
Salt or Seasonings

Wash off your Potatoes.
Cut them into wedges, small or large depending on how you like your fries. I like them large so I cut them accordingly.
Put them in a large pot of water like you are making mashed potatoes.
Only boil them until they are very al dente, firm but still a little soft.
Take them out of the water and put onto paper towel and dry them off as much as you can.
Place on a pan and cover with a little oil and salt or seasonings. I put Lawry's seasoning salt on mine.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, depending on your climate and elevation. Mine baked for 25 minutes.
They will be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. 

These are a yummy treat, and fun for the kids to have some homemade fries. You can even freeze them and bring them out when you have some homemade burgers too.

Flower Spring Wreath

This Spring wreath with full flowers and personalized letter is really easy to make. 

I wanted to show off the natural branches, so I kept it simple. 

1 round Vine wreath
1 Lg Letter - first of your last name
Ribbon - about 3-5 feet (for hanging and filling in gaps)
3 Lg flowers - I used Hydrangeas

I covered the letter with kraft glue and a piece of scrap booking paper.
Then I tied the letter on with kraft wire and hot glue.
I cut the flower stems off and also attached them with kraft wire and hot glue.
After I put the flowers on, there was a large gap underneath them, so I put some ribbon on with hot glue and filled it in.
Then I used another style of ribbon I had to loop through the wreath and hang it on my door.

It turned out really good. This was one of the easiest wreath's that I have made.
And I am very happy with the results.
