Cauldron Cake

I'm wrapping up my Halloween series today with a fun cauldron cake.  This cauldron is made out of chocolate, filled with cake and whipped cream, and topped off with loads of candy and sparkles. It's great for any skill level, and it's sure to be a hit at any party!

Ghost Cupcakes

These little ghost cupcakes are perfect for a Halloween party.  Once again they're definitely more cute than spooky, but I wouldn't have it any other way!  I'm really happy with how they turned out, and I just love the sparkly bows!  These are a bit time consuming, but once you get the knack of it, they're pretty easy.

Monster Cupcakes

3 Little Monsters

I can't believe it's time for Halloween baking already!  These cupcakes could actually work any time of year for a monster themed birthday party, but they're especially cute for Halloween.  Okay so they're definitely more cute than spooky, but this is me here!  I just did these for a party and the kids went crazy over them! This is also a great project for kids.  They can make the monsters any color they want, and decorate them with all different kinds of candy.

Nashville Eats

The amazing bazooka guacamole at Tavern

Along with having an amazing music scene, Nashville also has a majorly sweet food scene!  I was on a quest for the hottest spots in town so I did a bit of investigating before I went.  I had a nice list going, and once I got there, the locals were more than happy to point me in the right direction.
The first place I want to talk about is Tavern.  More than a few people told me I had to go, and after checking out their menu, I knew it was my type of place.  We went on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed.  I really liked the atmosphere, it was current and hip, yet still maintained a really relaxed vibe.

Nashville, Taylor Swift, and my Birthday

A few weeks ago I spent a fabulous weekend with some friends in Nashville, aka my happy place :)  We were definitely all in need of a little vaca, it was my birthday weekend, and we were able to get floor seats to the Taylor Swift concert!
