Mickey and Minnie Cinnamon Rolls

For any Disney lover this breakfast is the easiest and cutest Disney inspired treat. I made cinnamon rolls in the shape of a Mickey or Minnie. Add a bow to the top or bottom to make it into a character. I just used store bought cinnamon rolls and these were done in minutes. Make these easy Mickey and Minnie cinnamon rolls for kids before a trip to Disney or as a birthday treat! My daughter loved them and also I did too. Treats are not only for kids!

  1. Unroll cinnamon rolls.
  2. Put one cinnamon roll on a foil lined baking sheet. Rip another one in half then round one side. Attach it to the big cinnamon roll. Put one half on the top left and one on the top right.
  3. Bake according to package and let cool off.
  4. Cover with icing and sprinkles if desired.
  5. I added a bow on a toothpick. You can also add strawberries to look like a bow on top or bottom.

Easy as that! It is a perfect breakfast to make when you are going on a trip to Disney Land or World! read more

Moana Desserts

My daughter had a Moana party and I wanted to make her some fun Moana desserts for the party. I always make all the desserts myself. Although I’m not a pastry chef I’ve discovered that anyone can make some cute desserts that kids will love. The kids were the most impressed with the Hei Hei and Pua cupcakes and they gobbled up the Tomatoa Shiny cake balls. The adults were more impressed with the cake. These ideas are all simple and there is something for everyone.

For the shiny cake balls. I made cake balls like I would when starting cake pops, just flat at the bottom. You could also use donut holes for the balls. Line them on a baking sheet with parchment paper slightly spread out. Then melt dark blue or purple candy melts. Pour it over the balls with a spoon. I made these a bit messy they were honestly a last minute idea that my daughter had so we made them together. She’s so creative and she loves that character so we had to make something shiny! Before the candy melts dry sprinkle gold sprinkles on top. That’s all you have to do for shiny cake balls! read more

Fruit Ice Cream Cones for Summer

Fruit Ice Cream Cones

Summer is the perfect time for fruit and for ice cream. Well this doesn’t include a lot of actually fruit more like ice cream that looks like fruit. Does fruit flavor ice cream count as fruit? I’d say it does! I made cute little fruit ice cream cones that look like watermelons and pineapples. Two of my favorite cute fruits! Confession I didn’t have a ton of ice cream because everyone in my family ate the ice cream before I could use it. Don’t they know prop ice cream when they see it! They didn’t turn out as full as I would like because of the lack of ice cream but you get the idea. read more

Ice Cream Cake Cupcakes

Ice Cream Cupcakes

My birthday is in the middle of summer. As a kid the middle of summer in Phoenix is about 115 degrees. That meant for my birthday parties we always had pool parties. It also meant lots of ice cream. I think because of that my favorite cake has always been ice cream cake. I was never a big cake eater. For some reason I didn’t love cake. As an adult my tastes have expanded and now bring on the cake! Even though I didn’t love cake if you put some ice cream on cake I loved it. My daughter also is obsessed with ice cream! She is so funny she still is putting Christmas sprinkles on her ice cream because I bought an excessive amount of them. She will be celebrating Christmas in July with her Christmas sprinkles. I don’t make cakes very often but I love making cupcakes. That is why I made these fun ice cream cake cupcakes. They have all of the fun elements of an ice cream cake in a cupcake size. read more

Modelo and Corona with Taco Cookies.jpg

Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite holidays. I grew up in Phoenix and we always have a big celebration for Cinco de Mayo. It is the perfect time of year to be outside by the pool. We have a pool party celebration with lots of food, of course beer, family, and friends. I love Mexican beer! Corona Extra was the first beer I ever tried and I immediately loved the clean, crisp taste. I also love the rich, refreshing flavor of Modelo Especial. It is a family favorite. For our Cinco de Mayo celebration everyone brings Mexican dishes to indulge in. Usually I am in charge of desserts. I am an expert at eating Mexican dishes but not at making them. Desserts are my favorite to make for all occasions. I love desserts that look like savory foods and that is why I thought it would be the perfect time to make cookies that look like little tacos. In the past I have made cupcakes that look like hot dogs and cookies that look like pizza. Now it’s time to tackle taco cookies! They add some extra fun to the dessert table! These have all the elements of a real taco in sweet dessert form. They also pair very well with Modelo Especial and Corona Extra. The flavors of these beers taste amazing with a little sweet bite. I don’t know about you but I need a little sweetness to balance out all of the spice from a Cinco de Mayo meal. My dad makes his specialty spicy shrimp that come with a warning label because of the heat level. Not everyone can handle the heat. I usually can have one before my mouth is on fire! read more

Funfetti Taco Cookies

I love tacos and I love cookies so I just had to put the two together. I made these adorable funfetti taco cookies that have fluffy frosting and colorful sprinkles all in a little taco shape! You can make these will all store bought foods not form scratch or make it all from scratch. I actually used the store bought marshmallow frosting and it was not too shabby. I usually make a homemade buttercream but sometimes I just don’t have time. Lack of time doesn’t stop me from making cute treats though! These are really fun to serve for a fiesta, Cinco De Mayo, or Taco Tuesday fun. They would be perfect for a girls night too. I also like to make real tacos because they are one of the few things that I can make and don’t have to keep looking at a recipe. Not to brag but I am the slowest cook around. I constantly forget how much of what to put in then I improvise and it all goes downhill from there. Luckily these cookies you can improvise with and they will still turn out yummy. Get creative with the frosting and sprinkles! You can do different colors of frosting and any color combination of sprinkles or shapes of sprinkles. read more
