DIY - Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes 

How cute is this recipe, right?! This is by far one of my favorite dessert recipes, specially to make for the little ones. I recently began a new job as an after school educator for an amazing school in the Bay Area teaching cooking, art, and so much more! This week I needed to come up with a quick and fun recipe to engage a class of 3rd and 4th graders, and of course this one came to mind. 

This recipe is incredibly easy to make and very cost effective when you have a large number of hungry kids ($25). I started by pre-making the cupcakes for the students following the directions on the cake mix box the night before. 

HOW TO:

As you can see, I filled up my cupcake trays like you normally would. I then baked them for about 5 minutes, before then placing an ice cream cone directly on top of each cupcake. I found this to be the best method for me. In the past I tried using the ice cream cones as a substitute for the muffins tins, and while the cake mix baked inside the cones, the cones didn’t fluff up like I would have liked them to. So I highly recommend baking them this way. Once the cupcakes were done I cooled them off then packed them up for class. 

On the day of the class, I set out an assortment of different colored frosting, sprinkles, and cherry’s for them to decorate to their liking. Before each student began decorating the cupcake part, they simply removed the muffin foil, and voila, all done! Enjoy!

With my Vegas summer girls trip coming up this weekend, I wanted to create a cute accessory to wear to the pool parties!

I’m absolutely in love with Henna Art! I have been meaning to get some done this summer, but I’ve have had no time! I wanted to find an alternative to the commitment that henna ink entails. Henna ink once on, stains your skin for about a week or so. After doing some research on temporary tattoos, I found that I could duplicate a henna tattoo, but in a temporary form. 

This tutorial shows you how you can create your own temporary henna tattoo with items already found in your home. This method is perfect for those of you looking to have some henna art for a short period of time. (example: music festival, weekend event, photo shoot, etc.) The temporary henna tattoo last about 2 days, and easily comes off with nail-polish remover. 

Hope you guys enjoy my trial and error in getting this DIY tutorial perfect for you guys. Happy designing! 

Materials:

  • Eyeliner (Wet & Wild - Marker Form $4.99)
  • Liquid Bandage (Target $5.79 / Bandaid aisle)
