When you’re the mom who can make cool snacks, everyone assumes that you’re one of those people who really has their life in order.
I can assure you, that is not the case.
Not with me, anyways.
All these fun treats are meant to distract from the fact that I have no clue what is going on.
I think it usually works.
So let’s pretend that I definitely didn’t lose my $40 camera battery charger this morning, my house ISN’T a huge mess from tearing it apart looking for said charger, and I haven’t been planning on just ironing my son’s karate uniform pants instead of washing them for his pictures this afternoon.
I’m pretty sure that if they’re nice and unwrinkly, it will make them look clean.
I do that with jeans sometimes.
Kidding–of course I don’t!!
Okay. I do.
Wanna know how to make these easy peasy St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes?
I cut some inexpensive wooden skewers in half, inserted them in donut holes, and dipped in melted candy. I used dark chocolate candy melts, colored with black candy coloring (I usually buy my candy coloring at Hobby Lobby or Michaels).
Stick the skewers in a block of styrofoam or floral foam and while wet, attach a cut piece of black licorice and yellow mini M&M’s. Make sure the M&M’s don’t all lay flat–you want some of them standing up to give dimension.
Once set, stick skewers in cupcakes frosted with green frosting. I sprinkled my frosting with these pretty green sugar pearls.
If you need a good frosting recipe, click HERE for the tutorial on the butter cream I always use.
