4th of July Kit Kat Cake

My post about the Kit Kat cake is BY FAR the most popular post on this site. I promised a white chocolate follow up and I am finally delivering. Last year we made a red, white and blue version for the 4th of July. Sorry the pictures aren't so great, but they were a total afterthought. I ordered the white chocoate Kit Kats on Amazon because I couldn't find any locally. But other than that this cake was super easy to put together and a big hit with the block party we took it to!

I Heart U.

I kept seeing these cute little vases from Target show up in people's Valentine decor and decided that I wanted to have a set of them too.  I jazzed mine up with a flower made from this tutorial at How About Orange.  I used a pipe cleaner for the stem so that it would sit right in the vase.

Here are a couple of other pictures of our Valentine decor this year:

Valentine Dish Towel

Valentine projects are so much fun!  Here is a dish towel I made from some stuff I already had on hand - dollar store dish towel, thrift store rick rack, and some fabric scraps and embroidery thread.  Love it!

Pretty New Napkin Holder

Posted by Picasa

We used our napkin holder until it literally fell apart.  Here's the evidence:

But instead of just throwing it away, I decided to try to put it back together, but even cuter.  Well, I think I succeeded!

I sanded it down and then we nailed it back together.  Then a coat of paint and some Mod Podge and scrapbook paper and we were back in business!

Here's the cupcakes we ate on Friday in celebration of my friend Amber's birthday. They are molasses spice cupcakes with mocha frosting from Taste of Home. Not a combination I would think to put together, but I thought they were really good! The mocha frosting with the recipe did not work out for me though so I added more butter and sugar and cocoa and some cream until it tasted the way I wanted. Yum!

Here's a link to the recipe.
