Mounds Inspired Cupcakes


I gotta tell y’all, these cupcakes are DELICIOUS!  I made them for my sister’s birthday.  She LOVES chocolate and coconut. 


My sister Nori.



You will need this:
White cake mix
Coconut extract
Snack sized Mounds chocolate candies
Eggs and oil for cake mix
7oz bag of sweetened coconut flakes
Milk chocolate icing
Cup cake liners and pan

Prepare the cake mix according to package instructions.  If you have a precious princess kitchen helper….put her to work! 
After it was done, I added 4 teaspoons of the coconut extract and mixed it in well.  Then I added half the bag of coconut flakes and gently folded it in to the mixture.  Then I baked the cupcakes according to the package instructions.
Once they were done and cooled I cut the snack sized Mounds bars in half.

I added a half of the candy on top of a cupcake.  Iced over and around it.  Then sprinkled the tops with the remaining coconut flakes. 

DELICIOUS!!

My sister was very happy! 


I’d love to know if you try this recipe.  I hope you do.  It’s pretty simple, so delicious and pretty!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Paper Rose Wreath Tutorial

Pin It

Ain’t she a beauty!!?  I have wanted to make a paper rose wreath for a long time.  I’m so happy I finally got around to it and I’m SO HAPPY with how great it looks.  
My paper rose wreath finished off my Valentine’s Day mantel perfectly! 
I am the guest blogger at DecorChick today!!  AND I’m sharing the tutorial for THIS pretty paper rose wreath over there!!  So, if you’d love to know how to make one be sure to stop by Decor Chick today!  My tutorial includes the Silhouette version of this wreath.  Yep, I used my Silhouette for this one! 

Before you head over to DecorChick I wanted to share a few “behind the scenes” photos of the making of this wreath. 

After the Silhouette cut my spirals for this wreath my daughter held this up like this and started to dance and giggle. Makes for a fun decoration piece huh? 
Once you’ve cut out your spirals the left over paper makes for a great cat bed!
The Silhouette cutting a bazillion spirals for you is FANTASTIC! But, you still have to spin and glue those bazillion spirals.  You spend ALL DAY spinning and gluing and then you end up in bed….with a hot glue gun!!!
I spinned and glued into the wee hours of the morning.  This was my view for the night….
That’s my husband playing MW3, probably very happy that I wasn’t bugging him about watching TV.  I was busy burning my fingers in bed!!  I did talk to him though, the whole time.  Whether he listened or not is yet to be determined! 

OK, I’m done!  Thanks for stopping by and if you’d like to make a paper rose wreath please go check out my guest post on DecorChick for the tutorial!
