I am not a big chocolate fan…but I do love chocolate and peanut butter! In fact, these peanut butter balls are one of my favorite things to make. I usually only make these treats at Christmas, but I had an opportunity to work with a friend who is a wonderful baker. She needed 600 peanut butter balls for a 40th birthday surprise. Wow!
Thankfully she only needed me to make 200! I was happy to help her and glad that it was something I have made many times…it’s so much easier when I know what I’m doing!
Find the recipe here for Peanut Butter Balls. Enjoy!
APRIL just flew by for me! It is a month of celebrations in our home. My husband, daughter, best friend and anniversary are all celebrated in this lovely month.
My daughter turned 25 this year. Happy Birthday, Hannah! My family thought of things we each love about Hannah and had a friend of mine (who is my “go to” for graphics) design this for me. I thought it turned out so cute!
I framed this for my daughter as one of her gifts. I hope this always reminds her that she is special and unique, loved by her family and a precious young woman that has an amazing journey ahead of her!! We love you, Hannah!
Hannah’s Birthday Cake
I have teased my daughter that she is “practically perfect in every way”, since she was a small child. So this “Mary Poppins” cake was perfect for her!
Since she had this poster hanging on her wall the first year of teaching, it seemed appropriate for me to run with this theme! Happy Birthday Hannah!
I don’t think 25 is too old for Mary Poppins…do you?
One Cupcake can say a lot of things:
I am thinking of you
You are sweet
We are friends
You are worth it
I care about you
and last but not least…Happy Birthday!
One of my most precious friends has a birthday in April. She is so kind and always willing to taste my sweet creations and give me her honest opinion…too dense, too sweet, not sweet enough, etc. I love her feedback and trust her palate!! I asked her what type of cupcake she would like for her special day and she requested Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes.
I had made these previously and really liked them, so I was happy when she chose this flavor cupcake. My husband was too!
This little cupcake says so much more than Happy Birthday. It says “you are special” and “I am glad we are friends”.
One last thing…does anyone else out there have a kitchen that looks like this while you are baking or is it just me???
