Paper wheel napkin rings!

For Young Womens we are doing a dinner for our bishopric and their wives and we were in charge of the centerpiece for the table. I decided it would be cute to do some cute little place cards for each member of the bishopric and his wife. Well, then I thought it would be cute to make them into napkin rings. So I am going to have the girls (my beehives) make these paper wheels into napkin rings for the dinner next week. Isn't it so cute? I think I have decided to use that decorative paper as a place mat for their dinner too. Super cheap and super cute!! I was pretty happy with the idea it all!!












This picture is not the finished product of the centerpiece or the layout of the table, but you can get an idea of what it will look like. I did the centerpiece colors according to each bishoprics wedding colors too. I will post pictures with it all finished when I get that done.

Mint oreo crunch cupcakes!

I have seen lots of oreo cupcakes and mint oreo desserts lately, but I decided to just experiment and make some chocolate cupcakes with some crumbled mint oreo cookies on top! They were so easy and turned out really good!!

"You're one of our favorite "chicks."

I saw this idea to get some "chick," peeps and put a tag on it that said "You're one of our favorite chicks," to use for the Young Women. I wasn't going to do it at first because the lady that did it bought the smaller packages of peeps for each girl and I did not have money to do that. So, I came up with a better solution that fit our needs. I decided to add a stick to each peep and wrap it in cellophane and tie the tag on. It was a lot cheaper this way too! I am so glad I did this. A huge thanks to http://lifedesigncraft.blogspot.com/2012/03/for-our-favorite-chicks-yw-easter-treat.html for the inspiration!!

Lemon crunch cupcakes ?

I made lemon cupcakes the other day but before that I was thinking it would be so good to make some kind of lemon crunch cupcakes. I looked on Pinterest to see if there was even such thing as a lemon crunch cupcake (because Pinterest has everything and it's my go to site these days to find what I need), but they did not have a lemon crunch cupcake on there. At least I couldn't find it. So I decided to make up my own recipe for it. I just used brown sugar flower and butter and a little bit of oats for the crunch part and put it on top of my cupcakes. I thought it was quite tasty. I also don't have the exact measurements because I just eyed it.

So, here is my version of a lemon crunch cupcake. I made one with frosting on top and one without. I think it tasted good both ways.
