Belgian Red Devils Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Okay, Belgium didn’t play very well last game against Italy. Let’s admit it: it was painful to watch. I know they tried, but they just weren’t good enough. Our Belgian Red Devils need to step up their game and I’m convinced these Belgian Red Devils Cupcakes will help them win tomorrow!

I shared these babies with you before, when Belgium played at the World Championship. I believe they’ll bring our team good luck since they did great then. So now they’ll have to be great tomorrow as well! These cupcakes are perfect to make with the kids. So let’s all bake and cheer for Belgium!

March Favorites

Hi guys!

It’s the first of April. Anyone a good joke? No? Me neither… I can’t tell jokes and I never know a good joke whenever people ask me so I don’t think comedian is my perfect job. Although I do make people laugh with the random answers or remarks I make. Yay ๐Ÿ™‚

But more important than good or bad jokes: the March Favorites!
Oh boy it has been so hard to choose because my fellow blogging friends have been outdoing themselves. Again.

I usually don’t have favorites in this favorite 5 list but this time I secretly do. (It’s number 1 & 2 and you absolutely won’t blame me. Trust me.)

Easter Chick Cupcakes

Hi guys!

I hope today’s blogpost can somehow make you forget about the horror in Brussels yesterday. Even if it’s just for one second. I really hope you canย still find love and happiness in the little things in life.

And I do hope you’ll find my Easter Chick Cupcakes slightly amusing because they didn’t quite turn out the way I had hoped they would be…

The boyfriend always says my frosting looks like a pile of poo. It would have been great if that had been the case this time but alas. Meet my Easter Chicks:

The Original Red Velvet Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Who doesn’t love Red Velvet Cupcakes? In 2014, I made some Red Velvets but with a mascarpone-cream frosting. Now I made them with their ‘signature’ cream cheese butter frosting. I didn’t really know what to expect since I never manage to make delicious buttercream frostings. They just taste too much like butter…

But these Red Velvets with their original frosting are AMAZING! I don’t think I’ll ever make my ‘old’ frosting again. I had to keep myself from eating the frosting before putting it on my cupcakes ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Is that bad?

I know it sounds silly but I’m in love with these ‘original’ Red Velvet Cupcakes ๐Ÿ˜‰

Carnival Cupcakes

Hi guys!

It’s Carnival or Mardi Gras today! Unfortunately that does not mean funny costumes for me… although I really think they should introduce that into working life as well. Why let the kids have all the fun?

But we adults have the ability to make food! Or at least some of us ๐Ÿ˜‰ And that’s exactly what I did ๐Ÿ™‚ I used my favorite source in the world – Pinterest – and found the perfect kind of cupcakes for Mardi Gras: Funfetti Cupcakes! You know, the ones with the colourful dots inside the cake. But I guess I didn’t use the right ingredient or not enough of it because there are no colourful dots to be found in my cupcakes ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Oh well, next time ๐Ÿ™‚

Time for our spider webs!
