It is National Waffle Week! I absolutely LOVE waffles, it is my favorite breakfast food. I decided to make some ✨MAGICAL✨ waffles! If you are a Unicorn lover then you will love this idea for a Unicorn Waffle.🦄 It is super simple and a great breakfast treat for the kids.
You will need:
-thawed Cool Whip
-black decorating gel
-sugar cone ice cream cone
First divide your Cool Whip into separate bowls and add a drop of different colored food coloring to each and mix. I used pink, purple and blue. This is going to be the hair of the unicorn. Then place each colored Cool Whip into a sandwich bag and cut off the tip. Pipe the hair onto your waffle.
Next, using you black decorating gel create the eyes of your Unicorn.
It simply isn't a Unicorn without the horn right? Cut off the tip of a sugar cone ice cream cone. For a special touch you can spray it with gold color mist. Then place this on top.
Lastly, you can add sprinkles, I used heart sprinkles. You can even use edible glitter to make the waffle look more magical. One thing I wish I would have added was some ears. You could probably do so using large marshmallows.
It is National Sandwich Month and I've got the mother of all sandwiches! Grilled cheese sandwiches are my absolutely fave so I decided to take it up a notch. I made a Flamin' Hot Cheetos Grilled Cheese and boy oh boy it's goooood!
-small bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos crushed
-Shredded cheddar cheese
-two slices of white bread
On a plate, spread some cheese sauce onto each slice. Then sprinkle some of the crushed cheetos on each slice on top of the cheese sauce. Next sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese and close your sandwich together.
Spread butter on the outside of each side of the sandwhich and then cover with a coating of crushed cheetos. Lastly, grill the sandwich on a buttered skillet until the cheese is melted,
Say whaaatt? Melt-proof ice cream? July is National Ice Cream Month so I wanted to make a unique ice cream inspired treat. This recipe is for very delicious Cheesecake Ice Cream Cones! It is so easy and won't melt like regular ice cream.This is a cute idea for parties and you can get very creative by flavoring the cream cheese filling and decorating the cones.
-8 oz of softened cream cheese
-1 conatiner of thawed Cool Whip
-1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
-1/2 cup of powdered sugar
-food coloring(I used pink)
In a bowl blend the cream cheese with half of the container of Cool Whip(reserve the rest), vanilla and powdered sugar. Then mix in a few drops of food coloring. I decided to use pink so that it looks like strawberry "ice cream." Then place the cheesecake filling in a piping bag or you can use a sandwich bag and just cut off the tip. Pipe the cheesecake filling into the sugar cone. Then pipe the Cool Whip that you saved as the whipped cream topping. Lastly decorate with sprinkles and top with a cherry.

June is Pride month which is an annual celebration of the LGBT community. If you are bursting with Gay pride or just love all the beautiful colors of the rainbow, you will enjoy these Rainbow Waffles for breakfast!
You will need:
-Food coloring for the different colors of the rainbow
Follow the instructions according to the box of your pancake/waffle mix. You will want to make sure the batter isn't too runny. So don't add too much water. Once you make the batter separate the batter into different bowls and then add food coloring to make the different colors of the rainbow. I just did red, yellow, green and blue.
Then place each batch of colored batter into a sandwich bag and cut the tip.
Spray some cooking spray on you hot waffle maker and you can begin making your Rainbow Waffles. Begin by pouring a circle of the blue batter in the center of the waffle maker. Then pour the green around the edges of the blue, followed by the yellow with the red batter being the outer ring of the waffle.
Once cooked, enjoy with some fluffy "clouds" of whipped cream.
Enjoy and Happy Pride Month!
June is National Camping Month! I really love to go camping with my family. It is always a good time filled with laughs, eating junk food and of course roasting marshmallows over an open fire. Here is how to make campfire cupcakes!
You will need:
-yellow and orange starburst candy
-thin pretzel sticks
Frost the cupcake with the green frosting to form the "grass."
Then take your yellow and orange starburst and roll it together (you can microwave for like 3 seconds to make it more pliable). This will be the "fire" and just simply tear pieces of it and create the fire in the center.
Next create a Teepee with 3 pretzel sticks around the fire.
Lastly, put two mini marshmallows on a toothpick and with a lighter you can roasted them slightly and then add it to the cupcake as a final touch.
Peeps are a popular Easter treat that people have very strong feelings about. You either love them or you hate them. I think Peeps are cute and it simply isn't Easter without them. Whether you are a Peeps lover or hater, I guarantee that you will love this cake idea!
To make the Peeps Bunny Cake you will need:
-Baked sheet of cake that has cooled in the fridge (use whatever flavor you like)
-Frosting (I used pink)
-Sugar Sprinkles (I used pink)
-3 chocolate chips
-Peeps Bunny Cutout
Take your Peeps bunny paper cutout and simply cut the pattern out from the cake with a knife. Remove excess pieces of cake from the cut bunny pattern. Place the cake onto a serving pan with two pieces of parchment paper underneath on each side. This helps for easy clean up while you are decorating.
Use food coloring to color your frosting to whatever Peeps color you wish. I chose pink. Frost the entire cake including around the edges. Then apply your sugar sprinkles over the entire cake. Remove the parchment paper you placed underneath the cake. Lastly, using your chocolate chips insert (tip side down) into the cake as the eyes and nose, Enjoy and Happy Easter!
Every March I really look forward to sipping on a McDonald's Shamrock Shake. So i decided to make Shamrock Shake Cupcakes!
-1 box of white cake mix
-2 tsp of Mint extract
-Green Food coloring
-white frosting(store bought more homemade)
-Red and white paper straws(trimmed to size)
Combine the necessary ingredients according to the box of your cake mix. Then add the mint extract and a few drops of green food coloring to get it to the green color you desire. Line a cupcake pan with green cupcake liners, pour in batter and bake according to instructions. I baked mine at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes.
Once the cupcakes are cool, use a pipette bag to frost with white frosting. Top with a maraschino cherry and cut a piece of a red and white paper straw to accent the cupcake to look like a shake.
Enjoy and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
