Moist yellow cake topped with smooth raspberry frosting!
Hey guys! So there are only a few short days until Valentine’s Day! If you haven’t already, go read Monday’s post to help you get decorating! Now onto today’s post.
Yesterday, I made these yummy vanilla-raspberry cupcakes! These cupcakes are made of two parts. A delicious vanilla cake, topped with smooth rich raspberry buttercream frosting! Then you can add sprinkles if you want and of course, eat them!
I frosted these using the large sized open star tip in this AMAZING set I got on amazon, in a Wilton frosting bag. Before getting these frosting tips I just thought I was horrible at frosting cupcakes, until I realized that I was using the small Wilton brand tips that are really made for making designs, not frosting a cupcake. So I bought these tips and instantly fell in love with them! They are so great! You can frost both mini and normal sized cupcakes! Buy this set here.
Another thing I love about these amazing tips is that you don’t have to use a couplers with these tips. All you do is just pop them into the frosting bag, add the frosting, and trim the tip of the bag off! Then just frost the cupcakes! Down below, you can see all of the items I used in this recipe and where to buy them. Now onto the recipe!
Raspberry vanilla cupcakes
Moist yellow cake topped with smooth raspberry frosting!
Heat oven to 350 Fahrenheit. Place cupcake liners in cupcake pans.
In a large bowl beat all cake ingredients with mixer on high for 30 seconds, scraping bowl.
Beat on high for 3 minutes scraping bowl occasionally.
Scoop into cupcake liners with a cookie scoop. Fill 1-2/3 full.
Bake for 20 minutes and check with a tooth pick. Let cool completely before frosting.
For the frosting
In a large bowl, mix the powdered sugar and butter with electric mixer on low speed until blended.
Stir in vanilla and one tablespoon of milk. Slowly beat in just enough milk to make it smooth and spreadable. If the frosting is too thick beat in more milk, one drop at a time. If it is too runny, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
Hey guys! So how are you doing on Valentine’s? Are you one of the people who has all of the decor and valentines ready a month in advance or do you have no idea what your doing so the decor doesn’t end up getting put up until the day of? Right now our house is being remodeled so we don’t really have our decorations out right now, luckily some of the rooms are done so I have a place to hang up a few things 🙂 .
One of the few Valentines things I have hung up is this adorable chicken wire clip board I got at Michaels! I absolutely love it because it can be changed up for every season/holiday, and it’s super simple to do! It took me 5 minutes, start to finish to get this set up and the result is beautiful!
The best part about these valentines clip cards is that you don’t have to have a clip board! You can use them to make a banner, hang them on a magnet or pin board, you could even use them as Valentines cards for your kids school parties! Really, it’s your choice!
To get these, simply:
Click on the picture at the bottom of this post. That will take you to a page where you can click print in the top right corner.
Print them out! Just print them in a normal printer. I did them on card stock paper to make them more durable.
Cut them out.
Clip them up or write on the back if your using them for valentines day cards!
If you print them out, post a picture on Instagram and tag me, @craftilybaking and I’ll check it out! Which design is your favorite?
It’s getting colder and colder outside every day! We’re starting to get frost every morning and your probably feeling the chill while your going to work or school in the mornings. For me, my hands are always the most cold, and now I have a solution! These DIY microwave hand warmers are the perfect way to stay cozy during your morning commutes! You can use them over and over, re-heating them in the microwave each morning! No more frostbite here!
Now your probably thinking: why should I make these? Couldn’t I just buy the disposable ones at the store? Yes, you could keep on buying them over and over and waste tons of money. But why do that? You can only use those once, and they cost a whole lot more than if you would just use some fabric laying around and make some of these hand warmers!
They are the perfect gift, both practical and cute! Either wrap them up or use them as stocking stuffers! They are SUPER simple! It only takes about 5 minutes to make a set! I love these hand warmers because you can just grab and go! They only take 10-20 seconds in the microwave, then you just slip it into your pocket or glove and your all set to face the cold! I cant wait to go outside this winter with these cute little hand warmers! Another cool thing about these, is that they can work as either a hand warmer or a cold pack! Simply put it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes and voila! It’s an ice pack!
And now how to make them.
DIY microwave hand warmers:
(As your making them, refer to the above picture for step by step pictures)
Fabric. Most any fabric will do, just as long is it doesn’t have plastic and it can be heated in the microwave without melting
Needle + thread
Cut out a rectangle in the fabric that is: “6 1/2 by “3 1/2, I cut out a piece of card stock paper that size and used it as a pattern.
Fold over, good side to good side.
Sew two sides. You can either leave one side open or leave only a little hole 1/2 inch wide. Don’t forget to reverse stitch and tie the knot!
Forty-five days till Christmas!! I’m not going to lie, Christmas is my very favorite holiday. I love everything about it! The snow, the music, all the planning I get to do! If your following me on Instagram, you know I’ve been planning for Christmas since well before Halloween. 🙂 I. love. Christmas.
The reason I love planning so much is, its kinda my personality to be organized, and I have this amazing planner from intheleafytreetops.com They have lots of different types of planners, and accessories for your planner as well! Another one of my favorite things to do, is wrapping all of the presents up and making them look pretty! And part of that is having adorable labels! So Iv’e created these cute little gift labels for all of you to use for free!
When you print these out, you can either print them on cardstock paper, hole punch them, and tie them with twine, like I’ve done here, or, you can print them on sticker paper, cut them out and stick them to the gifts! It’s totally up to you. I also made two versions, large sized labels, and small ones. You can choose which size you would like down below!
