I thought I’d bring Blue Monday over to my cooking blog since it’s food related, enjoy!

the twins are  six now, where does the time go? my daughter put together a Frozen themed party for their class Christmas party




icing cupcakes look so easy doesn’t it?


after my third try  I was put on snowflake duty lol! the snowflakes are gum paste cut out with tiny cookie cutters



funny how a little ole icing bag can intimidate you lol!  it’s all in how you twist, hold &squeeze that bag lol! I think this may be on my bucket list you know the list of things you want to do or learn lol! yea I think I need  one for this year lol!



2 cups Crisco

1/2 cups water

4 cups confectionary sugar (or whole bag)



1 egg white (beaten)

add 1 & 1/2 cup conf. sugar while beating

add 3 tsp. tylose


I am linking this post to Sally’s Blue Monday, be sure to go by & say hello & meet up with some great bloggers who are sharing their blues today

I do not cook much anymore, so I would truly enjoy some of these pretty cupcakes.

Wow! You did it beautifully.

I love baking and I a year ago, I did my first dummy cake with a real sugarpaste decos. Fun and loving doing it.

Hope you come back soon as I am baking for our NYear's dessert.

Have a peaceful New Year to all.

Happy New Year to you and yours! Lovely cupcakes. I need some lessons too. I love all the pretty cupcakes I find at pinterest. Now to learn the art of decorating. Love those snowflakes and of course, everyone loves Frozen. Enjoy your week and come say hello soon.

Hi Helen,

Those cupcakes look yummy!

Sorry that it took me so long to comment, but I’m home from the hospital now and using a new laptop.

Thanks for your good wishes.

Happy Blue Monday!
