I had the opportunity to test and review Grazia’s silicone mini muffin pan and it worked nicely for smaller treats. I have used silicone pans in the past and this muffin pan is one of my favorites. Over the weekend, I made blueberry crumble muffins and I used the mini muffin pan for them. The muffins cooked evenly and tasted great. The mini muffin pan is nice for treats for my three old toddler as well as for myself as a way for portion control. Clean-up was easy as you can place it in soapy water or even in the dishwasher. I highly recommend this muffin pan to anyone looking for a high quality and long lasting performance product.

Here is the birthday cake I made my hubby this year for his birthday!  Very easy to do and a lot easier than making him a “real” cake.  He’s not into sweets like I am so this was perfect for him.

 

 

I took 3 cake rounds (12″, 10″ & 8″), one 30-pack of beer and then started to stack!  They are not glued down so it was a great centerpiece for his birthday party with our friends and family.  Everyone took a beer when they needed it.  Last, I took some 1″ ribbon and tape it around the beer can to complete the look. You can always add a birthday candle at the top but I just add some streamers/bow ribbon.

The whole beer birthday cake took about 10 minutes and it was a huge hit!

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Around this time every year, my mom ends up either baking a pineapple upside down cake or buying one from the local grocery store for my dad’s birthday.  This is his favorite cake in the entire world and he would eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner…if my mom would let him :)

A few days back, I found a recipe to make pineapple upside down CUPCAKES!  I want to try this out soon, and of course my dad will be the judge to see if this recipe beats what we traditionally have.  I like the easy presentation of the cake in the cupcake liners for this type of cake since usually becomes a little bit of a mess on the cake plate. My dad will argue with me that this is the best part of the cake!

Thanks to FamilyFun Magazine for the recipe and the step-by-step instructions to make these cute cupcakes.  They do not use cupcake liners but it is a quick step to do in the beginning while your oven is heating up.

This recipe will make 12 cupcakes – just enough for a family birthday party or dessert for every meal for my dad for a week 😉

A little tip to make this recipe even faster to make is to use yellow cake mix instead of making your batter from scratch. If you use cake mix, you can also double your recipe to make 24 cupcakes since you will more batter.

Just a note: this recipe does not require the use of the cupcake liners. Just flip the muffin pan over to release each cupcake and display on a nice dessert platter…or you can add the cupcake liners so each person can have fun unwrapping their own dessert. I’m going to use fun decorative cupcake liners to match the decor of the party.

Love the Presentation!

Thanks to CookbookManiac.com for this great photo sequence of her version of pineapple upside down cupcakes. You can find the recipe at her website.

 

 



I’m excited to try out a new recipe and if it turns out as good as they look in these photos, then I know it will be a big hit at my dad’s birthday party!

Until tomorrow, have a sweet day!


Happy Tuesday!  We are finally having a beautiful summer day today with no humidity.  All of the windows are open and excited to take my daughter to the park this afternoon.

 

My inspiration for today’s blog is jungle safari. I finished up a baby jungle safari cupcake topper order this morning and wanted to find cute ideas to go with this theme.

 

 

 

Monkey Cupcakes

Love the monkey cupcakes and they look so easy to make!  Start with your traditional cupcake, frost with chocolate icing and then add vanilla cookies to make the mouth area Split the mini nutter butter cookies in half for the ears.  Use black decorating gel to add the nose and eyes. Finally, use red decorating gel to create a smile!  The kids are going to love these!

 

Safari Themed Cupcake Toppers

Don’t have time to make these decorated cupcakes? Then try Sweet’n Treats Edible Cookie & Cupcake Toppers. We have a few different pre-design collections for jungle and safari themed birthday parties and baby showers!  Very easy to use and sold by the dozen.  Order 2 dozen and it is the perfect amount to apply to any frosted home-made or store bought cupcakes.

Tatoos for Tots

I found this great site, TatoosForTots.com, with a fun collection of temporary tattoos perfect for favor bag treats for all ages.  These tattoos use colorful designs combined with printed words.  There so many different tattoos to choose from and the best part is the tattoos engages children to make connections between letters and sounds.


Each collection contains 2 sheets of temporary tattoos for $3.99 and they even have one for the jungle safari theme!

 

 

Jungle Pals Balloons

A party is only complete if you have balloons and lots of them.  How about these mylar gallons from BalloonPlanet.com. There are 4 gallons in this balloon bouquet and features an elephant, monkey (my favorite), lion, and jungle birthday balloons. Also included is a balloon anchor weight.  Combine these with some animal print (leopard or zebra) balloons from your local party store and your party will come together very quickly!

 

 

I love finding different party themes and ideas through out the week and wish I had more parties to throw to use all of these great ideas!

Have you thrown a jungle safari party? I would love to see photos from your special day! Send photos with details about your party to sales@sweetntreats.com and I may feature them on one of my next blog posts!
