How to Bake a Wedding Cake using a Cake Box Mix! {Part 1}

I am making my friend's wedding cake.
 (The wedding is this Saturday!!! AHHH! So excited for them!
My mom, sisters and I were asked to do the cake. This will be our third wedding cake. 

Here's a picture of the last wedding cake we did.

 This is the rough concept drawing for this cake. The bride wants a smaller cake: 10", 8" and 6" layers.

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breasts


A little boy I know once told his mom that he, 
"Didn't want to get married." 
When asked why, he said, 
"Because I don't want to share the bacon!"

Better Than S'mores Cupcakes!

I can never seem to master the campfire art of making s'mores... It always ends up burnt or just falls apart. This is the perfect compromise of these amazing textures and flavors.

 I wanted to make something sweet for some friends coming over, but I didn't really have all my usual ingredients. Rummaging through my cupboards I noticed that, being summer, I had s'mores stuff on hand... and a cake box... so thus these "Better than S'mores Cupcakes" were born!

Strawberry, Blueberry, Lemon Glaze Muffins ♥

When I was in recovery after having my baby girl, my sisters made me some yummy blueberry bread with a lemon glaze! It was so welcome(Thanks Grace, Georgia, Laurel & Jordan)! I didn't want to eat the yucky hospital food.
