Hello Sew Can Do readers! I am Ashley, the face and voice behind Simply Designing and I am so excited to be here today guest posting for CraftShare!
I am fairly new to blogland but am loving every minute of it! I am an interior designer and a floral designer. I own my own business. I also love to dabble in crafts, baby / child items, very occasional sewing, lots of baking, cake decorating and a variety of other things.
I love finding ways to make my life more SIMPLE!
I enjoy keeping busy and I have a list a mile long of "projects" I want to do. And I love posting about my projects on my blog! I also LOVE new visitors, comments and new followers! (hint hint! :-)
In addition, I am a wife to a wonderful husband for 9 years, and a mom of a 3.5 year old spunky little girl and a sweet cuddly 4 month old little boy! So much fun!
Oh. And in my spare time (ha ha!) I am opening an Etsy shop. It is a slow process for me, but I am enjoying that too. (Go check it out if you don't mind!) I'll wait...
Ok. Now. On to the GOOD stuff!
I am so excited to be guest posting here today. I am actually going to show off a yummy treat that is so SIMPLE, your kids will even enjoy helping you make these!
Fruity Pebbles Cupcakes!
Don't these look yummy?!?
They are super easy to make but look quite impressive! (And they taste yummy too!)
Fruity Pebble Cupcake Treats
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1 package mini-marshmallows (about 10.5 oz)
- 8 1/2 cups fruity pebbles (about 13 oz)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
- 1 can vanilla / white frosting
- Powdered sugar (optional)
- Melt the butter in a microwave safe dish.
- Add marshmallows and continue microwaving until melted.
- Stir melted butter, melted marshmallows and vanilla (optional) together.
- Add the fruity pebbles cereal and mix until the cereal is evenly coated in the marshmallow mixture.
- Press the mixture into greased mini-muffin tins until firmly packed.
- When completely cooled, remove the fruity pebble cupcakes from the tins.
- For the icing, I typically like to make my own icing. However, I really do like to keep things simple, and these were being made for a group of 3 year olds who really wouldn't have known the difference! So I used premade, store bought icing. Mine was a little "soft" to pipe, so I mixed a bit of powdered sugar into the icing to give it a stiffer consistancy.
- Add any food coloring you like to the icing (I preferWilton't gel food coloring as you can get vibrant colors without using an entire bottle of food coloring and without changing the consistancy of the icing.)
- Place any tip you like in a disposable piping bag, put the icing in the bag and ice the cupcakes!
And they look really cute, don't you think?
