Hi everyone, we arrived safe and sound in Ontario to visit family. It’s been a chaotic couple of days with all the cousins running around excited to play together again. They are having a great time as am I.
Last week we celebrated my youngest son’s 6th birthday. He requested chocolate cupcakes and to keep things simple I made them out of a cake mix. To fancy them up I simply added an oreo cookie to the bottom (as per this recipe) and they were yummy. I also added crushed oreos to the buttercream icing with a half cookie added on top of that to make them look pretty. So easy and of course my son loved it with all those cookies! They are a real treat in our house because I don’t usually buy store bought cookies (my daughter is our cookie baker).
This Pampered Chef celebrate plate has become a favorite birthday tradition in our house. I purchased it off ebay many years ago. My son just couldn’t wait to eat his birthday pizza on it. Does anyone else use a celebrate plate to highlight special days?
