Trick or treat! Halloween is right around the corner, guys and I cannot get enough festive treats and sweets! From homemade caramel apples to everyones’s favorite girly ghost cupcake trio, I want to make them all!
Before I start going on about my love of zhushing up cauldrons and dolling up ghosts with pink sparkly bows, I have some important news to share with you! In the next few weeks, Buttercream Blondie will be getting a whole new look – so exciting! I wanted to give you a heads up that we will be using a new email system, so the recipes in your inbox are going to look a little different, and a whole lot prettier! Stay tuned!
Ridiculously easy would be an understatement and so would ridiculously good! This is one of those recipes that you need in your life because you will find yourself making them again and again. I’m sure many of you have made these in the past with different kinds of candy, but when that bag of pumpkin kisses was eyeing me last week, I knew these had to happen.
You guys know I’m all about the salty/sweet combo and these deliver. You get the salty crunch from the pretzel, topped with a sweet pumpkin kiss and garnished with a toasted pecan. If you’re anything like me you won’t want to share!
Say hello to the cookie of Fall, and between me and you, I think melt-in-your-mouth would be a major understatement! These little pumpkin gems are cake-like cookies (think cupcake tops) filled with warm spices, a top-secret ingredient, and topped with Baileys cream cheese frosting!
I know, I died a little too!
So it turns out there’s about a million pumpkin cookie recipes floating around out there, but they always seemed to be lacking a little something to me. There were a few I liked, but none I really wanted to commit too. Um, are we still talking about cookies, or did we just switch to dating?
Hungry yet? It may not even technically be Fall yet, but the baking bug is strong! I had my first pumpkin coffee the other day and all of a sudden my head is filled with apple desserts, pumpkin cupcakes and cinnamon dusted pastries. You guys are definitely ready for the apple goods too, because those apple crisp cheesecake bars are by far the most popular kid in class right now! I have a few new apple desserts I’ve been working on that I cannot wait to share, but for today I wanted to share some of your favorites from seasons past so you can dig in this weekend! I can smell the cinnamon already!
There’s a lot to choose from, but all I know is Boozy Apple Pie Milkshakes are happening this weekend! And the Halloween inspired caramel apples – how soon is too soon, because I am so ready!
In case you were wondering what happened to the rainbow sprinkle supply…
Don’t they just scream happy? Sugar cookie bars are one of the easiest desserts you will ever make and one of the best! These are my go-to when I want something super homey, comforting, vanilla-y, and sprinkly to the max with all the pink buttercream my heart could ever desire!
They’re the type of treat I made as a kid that made me freak out with excitement, and nothing has changed!
Still freaking out over here, and then I thought what better recipe to share with you for my birthday month! What can I say, it’s my birthday and I’ll eat a million sprinkles if I want to
Happy Friday, friends! I wanted to pop in and add a little sparkle to your weekend with my latest cake. This pink and purple striped cake was so much fun to make and incredibly hard to part with! I’m not big on letting the sparkles go…
This was a birthday cake I recently created and I must admit, I knew from the beginning I was never going to want to part with it. I was going on pink, purple, girly and sparkles – music to my ears! The cake itself was chocolate with a cookies and cream filling, all wrapped in my signature vanilla buttercream. It’s my favorite cake and it’s one of those cakes that everyone loves. Even people who say they’re not into chocolate (um, how do people like that even exist?!) love this cake! Magic, maybe?
Ask and you shall receive, my fellow cake lovers! Many of you have been asking for cake tutorials for a long time and I’m excited to share that it’s time to start sharing the cake decorating videos!
I’m a big believer in getting a firm grasp on the basics so we’re starting off with a super simple video today showing how-to fill a piping bag. It’s one of those things that many people tend to struggle with (myself included when I first started) and I think it’s the kind if thing you need to actually see to get. You know what I mean?
