Tempt Your Tummy.               Things I Think About.               Project Time.              

08 September 2011

My newest love.

OK, love might be a little strong of a word.  How about extreme like or mild obsession?  Well, no matter how I describe it, I'm talking about Pinterest.  

Oh Pinterest, what great ideas you give me.

I've made banana chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter syrup

a paper towel holder to cover my broken silverware drawer

 a brilliant Christmas gift for my husband

Don't worry, he never reads my blog.

and now....Angry Bird cupcakes for Josh's birthday.

Here's what you need:

Your favorite icing - divided into 3 bowls and tinted red, blue and yellow
Sprinkles or sugar - in red, blue and yellow
Sugared orange slice candy
Chocolate Twizzlers - cut into thin pieces
Mini marshmallows
Regular marshmallow
Mini chocolate chips

Start by making your favorite cupcakes & icing.
Ice cupcakes 1/3 red, 1/3 blue, and 1/3 yellow.
Sprinkle with coordinating color sugar/sprinkles.

Now the fun part.

Use mini marshmallows topped with mini chocolate chips to make eyes

Apply Twizzlers for eyebrows

Cut orange slices in 1/3.  Place on cupcake for beak.  I just used the pointy ends.

Cut large marshmallows in 1/2 to make shallow circles.  Apply to bottom area of cupcake to make chest.

Angry Birds!

You don't know me but I recently found your blog through a mutual friend and I love it. I totally looked up the date night basket as I wanted to do something similar for my husband for Christmas. This is great and will get my mind going. Thanks.

Megan, thanks for reading. I'm slowly picking up gift cards for mine each time I have a little extra cash left over from groceries. I love that it's a gift that will give us something to look forward to all year. Good luck with yours.
