Mommin It Up

I’m going to get things started off this week by showing you what happened when I made those Pokemon cupcakes I found in this pin (see how I just linked to my original source!):

I loved the idea, but I H-A-T-E coloring frosting with food coloring. I always stain my fingers and about half my kitchen counter and in this case with the red food coloring the mess often resembles something gory, so I decided to take the photo as my inspiration but make this idea into reality a different way. Here’s how mine turned out:



And here’s how I did it!

Joshua loved these cupcakes and so did his friends. And they were very easy to decorate. Even at midnight (I was up at midnight as predicted!)

  1. what a great idea! I needed some incentive for blogging about some of my successful Pinterest discoveries!! 🙂 and the Land’s End incentive!! great bonus 🙂

  2. I don’t blog, so I can’t link up, but I think this is a GREAT carnival idea, and I’ll definitely be clicking thru to read everyone’s success stories and tips!

  3. I’ve made several things (ready to eat cookie dough – two diff. recipes); a couple home decor ideas; home organization ideas (bag holder from Ikea doubles as a wrapping paper holder); and a couple other things I’m sure. Tonight, pinspired to do the Samoa bars I pinned earlier this week. 🙂

  4. Good stuff! A link party that is not overwhelming. And yes, I know everyone has made this wreath, I made two one for me and one for my mom because they’re so simple 🙂
