This is a piece of cake.

Or, actually, a whole cake.

When: My friend's birthday 2 years ago.
What: A pink and Zebra print cake

Why? Sometimes I ask myself the same question

The answer? Because this is what I love to do, that's why!

This is just to show that I can make cakes too.

March Madness... Cake Pop Style.

As April looms nearer, I find that it is necessary to look back on March with a sense of relief.

This month I had three orders, an order of 12 , and order of 19, and an  order of 48.
That makes 79 total.

 They went smoothly with only one all nighter to pull it off.. (I think I keep my local corner store in business with all the Red Bull I buy).. And Viola! Pops.

Unfortunately, a certain popular shipping company with a three letter name that drives brown trucks, "lost" my shipment of the 4 dozen pops, (I hope you guys are enjoying them over at the shipping store!)
So I made another batch.. This time shipping them through another popular shipping comapny whose colors are purple and orange.

They should arrive tomorrow.. Here they are:

I hope you're enjoyed the rantings of a twenty-something housewife:)

Sick Puppies and Vet Bills.

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry I've disappeared off the face of the planet!

My little dog Lilly has not been feeling well at all and she's been in and out of emergency clinics and vet's offices. Now we are just keeping an eye on her and trying to get her to eat the prescribed food.
Hubby and I got about 6 hours of sleep last night and this morning, and we are nowhere near over the hump.

Here is Lilly's progression today:

This was Lilly right after we got home from the hospital.  Poor baby was so very tired!

As of right now, she is bouncing back slightly, but still not 100% Lilly-fied yet.

She's just too cute in this picture!!

To my fans, friends, and followers.

I just want to take a minute to say thank you to everyone that has made this possible for me.
I have always had a passion for baking, and for watching my mom create things out of cake and icing. It fascinated me as a kid, and now I am an adult. I just recently started trying to take this more seriously. My husband has been my support structure through all the good and bad that has come our way, and he has never stopped believing in me. His older sister, my wonderful sister in law, has been relentless about getting my name out there to her friends in Tennessee, and has been 100% behind me the whole way. My best friend who is more like a sister to me has been my biggest fan, my taste tester, and my swift kick in the butt sometimes to not give up. I love y'all and couldn't do this without you.

Thanks y'all!!

Join The Revolution.

I was on Facebook today, just doing my normal daily check, and I spotted a video that a friend had posted. Now, I generally just skip over these videos, but this one caught my eye.

It was called KONY 2012.

It was also 29 minutes long.

It was the best 29 minutes I have ever spent.

Bunny Pop Fail.

So yesterday I was all excited to work on some "Just For Me" Pops... which are pops that aren't going out to a customer.

I decided to make red velvet bunny pops.
Everything was going great:


By some freak accident my candy coating was cooling too rapidly...

then, this happened:

Oh well... They're still yummy.

I'll be back tomorrow night with some cute "Texas Star" Pops.

Love Saira

Brain Hurricanes

Today has been a long day. Got up a bit too early and I already didn't feel good on top of that..

On the bright side, I have been brainstorming and have come up with a few new ideas. (Thanks to my amazing husband for helping!)

So hopefully soon you will be seeing some new pops!

Now it's time to feed the feline and the canines and I will see y'all on the flip side..

 In the meantime, I will leave you with an adorable picture of my little princess pooch, Lilly, sound asleep.
Which is what I'll be doing in short order.

Princesses, Pooches and Pops,

Sad news:(

Louis “Cheddar” Barron I
Cheddar passed away earlier this evening. He was very sick, but even though he was suffering he never stopped being sweet to me and to his companion Oreo.
Cheddar was purchased as a feed rat for our snake Gumby, but that night Gumby granted Cheddar a pardon, and he was free to live as a happy pet rat. Though we don’t know for sure how long he lived, we do know that his short life was a happy one.

I never knew how sweet rats were until I held Cheddar in my hands for the first time. I was a little bit afraid he was going to bite me, but to my surprise, he licked my hand! Ever since that moment I was absolutely in love with him.
He was only sick for a couple of days, and he didn’t suffer for long. He just hit a rapid downward spiral this afternoon. He spent his last moments in my hands, and he died shortly after in the soft bedding of his home. 
We buried our beloved Cheddar in our flower garden, and said some kind words of remembrance.
Cheddar, I will not forget you.

So... remember how I said I was making curtains?
 Well here is how they turned out..

It was terrible!

So, I decided to put the fabric to good use.

Here is what I made:

I actually really like it.

And here is something else I did:

Ta-da! This lamp was hot pink and I had glued a feather boa around the bottom of the shade for my little sister's room when she visited this summer.. Now it perfectly matches the color scheme in my office!

Now to go figure out how to make curatins the right way!
Love, Saira!

Food Find!

Hey guys!
Look what I found at the store:

They are individual cupcake holders, for when you want to take someone a cupcake and dont want the mess of using tupperware. They cost 2.00 a piece at Walmart.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cupcakes:)

Good Afternoon Y'all!

Today I'm introducing the Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cupcake.

This Cupcake is very very simple to make, and has a couple variations.

For example:

You can either make a chocolate base cake,
a white cake with ground chocolate chips,
or you can use hot cocoa mix in your cake batter to give it an authentic taste,

You may use a cream cheese or buttercream base for the icing.
All you have to do is add melted peppermint bark, and three drops of peppermint extract.

Another variation you can try is marshmallows.
I put four mini marshmallows into my cake batter before I baked them.
You can put them in after by digging out a hole in the cupcake while they're still warm,
or you can pipe some marshmallow creme into the center when it has cooled.

I also used a silicone candy/fondant mold to make the rose on top out of melted peppermint bark.

Love, Saira

Happy Monday:)

Hey guys,

Sorry I've been scarce this weekend, Hubby and I went out to an off road park close to where we live in our Jeep Wranglers. It was very fun, and a bit challenging. I got my Wrangler stuck in some nasty mud, and it took a while to get me out, Luckily my wonderful husband pulled me out with his winch. Overall, we had a very good time and can't wait to go back!

Enjoy the pictures!

Love, Saira
This is Big Mama, my Jeep. I love driving through the mud and woods!

This is Big Daddy, my husband's Jeep. It is one bad mamma jamma!
I was leaned over to the left. Very uncomfortable!
