Glitterfied Celebration!!! Recipe, and DIY! ♥♥♥♥

February is filled with so much celebration!
My birthday, the anniversary of iSparkle Cupcakes, and Valentine's day!
I thought to celebrate I would share a little how-to for you to make for your Valentine!

Red Velvet cupcake stuffed
Chocolate dipped Strawberries!
They are so fun, and easy!
The first thing you need to do is make up your favorite Red Velvet cupcakes!

May it be that secret recipe from your grandma, or a quick box mix!
(I won't judge you for using a box mix, don't worry!)

Or you can make it fun, and use this doctored up box mix!
Don't worry it's still easy!!

1 Red Velvet Cake Mix
1 box chocolate instant pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 tsp. Almond extract
You add more Red Coloring too if you want it to be super red velvet! 

Throw everything in a bowl, and mix it all up!
Scoop into cupcake pans, and bake 22mins at 325*

The other things you need are:

a scissor (wash them!!)

Melting Chocolate like candy melts,
I really like Ghirardelli!
Fresh Strawberries
Fun sprinkles, and glitter
to throw on them!
parchment paper, or cupcake liners

Step 1: Take your strawberry, and make a cut into it about half way up

Step 2: Brake off some of your Red Velvet cupcake.

Step 3: Stuff as much Red Velvet cupcake into that strawberry as you'd like!!
A little or a lot! I say the more the merrier!

Step 4: Melt your chocolate, now you can use any kind of melting chocolate you want.
I used white Chocolate because I think it pairs nicely with Red Velvet cake! But dark Chocolate would be just as yummy!
Make sure you melt it 30sec at a time stirring in between so your chocolate doesn't burn.
After you melt it you're ready to dip your strawberries!!!

Then you can either set them each right into a pretty cupcake liner,
or onto parchment paper!

Make sure you sprinkle them up before that chocolate dries!
And throw a little over your shoulder for good luck!

We even made these with the lovely
Hannah Anderson, on Sunrise Seven at 7am!!!
Tune in on Feb 9th to watch!!!

Merry Christmas!(DIY Snowmen oreos!)♥♥♥

Christmas always seems to bring out the kid in me.
I think it shows in every cupcake swirl sitting in my case today.
From a peanut butter reindeer frosting swirl on top of of Chocolate cupcake,
to the silly Olaf cupcakes beside them!

Since I live in Wisconsin, and the weather here is crazy cold,
I haven't been able to build a real snowman; so instead I sat inside in my nice cozy sweater, frosting covered yoga pants, and sparkle covered ugg boots, and made these!

Chocolate covered oreo snowmen!!!
These are so easy peasy that I thought I'd show you *all* how to make them yourself!

Since I'm sure you all know how to dip oreos in chocolate I skipped that part!
Or you can cheat, and buy the oreos already dipped in chocolate!
Yes they make some already dipped in chocolate!

Here are my already dipped oreos ready to be snowmen!!!

Here are all the fun things you need!
Besides the Chocolate covered oreos of course!

1. Chocolate candy melts
2. Orange colored candy melts
3. a cup to melt chocolate in.
4. Red Heart sprinkles! (because sprinkles make everything more fun!)
5. A cakepop stick
6. a little plastic bag. (I used one that I put over finished cakepops)

First you melt a little bit of the chocolate in the cup!
(Make sure you melt it 30sec. at a time so it doesn't burn!)

Then you dip your cakepop stick into the chocolate:

Then you just dab on some eyeballs!

Then the mouth!

Are your hands shaking yet? (:
Taaaaaadaaaa! It's got eyes, and a mouth now!

If you want to have girly snowmen, then you can
add a red Christmas hair bow to them like this!
Then to make the nose, you take that little plastic bag,
and melt a little bit of the orange colored candy melts in it,
cut off the little part on the end, so you just can draw on the nose with the chocolate!

Taaaaada!!!! You made snowmen oreos!

Here is my army of Chocolate covered oreo cuteness!!!

♥♥♥If you make some I'd *love* to see pictures!!!
Feel free to share on our facebook page. or in the comments below!

Cheers to a Merry Happy Christmas,
and a sparkly new year!!

Icing Smiles. ♥♥♥

I always feel like giving back is just something you should do.
Even when you don't have a lot to give, it's the little things that really matter.
I honestly feel like I wouldn't be where I am today,
if people didn't have that kind of giving generosity towards me!
Even now everyday all of you give me something, you give me support, and hope by little facebook posts, even coming in here and just buying a cupcake. You all give me so much.
I had the chance to make a cake for a special little boy
celebrating the 1 year anniversary of his heart transplant!
When I saw the post for it, I jumped at the chance to be able to do it!

It's not every day you get the chance to be apart of something like this.
I couldn't believe people weren't lined up wanting to make him a cake.
I can't even imagine what he went through, what his family had to go through.
How could you not want to make him a cake?
This is the cake I made him, yes there are sparkles, yes that is a sparkly batman
and extra, extra heaping overflowing scoops of love baked into this cake!

Here he is with his cake!!! He loved it,
so I think that means mission accomplished?!

I hope I left a little sparkle on his lips after he ate the cake,
because he sure left more then a little sparkle in my heart!
