Book Worm Party!

To get the kids excited about going back to school...
   Have a BOOK WORM PARTY!!!

Create a fun dessert table with yummy treats!
Check out the napkins displayed to look like a book.  Just place regular white napkins in between large colorful party napkins to create the look of a book. ;)

 Provide some great snacks like veggie chips, yogurt raisins, pretzels, and apples.  Don't forget something sweet like cupcakes and gummy worms!
 Create cute a simple cupcakes for your book worm party by placing sour candy worms on top of sprinkled cupcakes.  Easy and fun!

Make your own bookmark is a great activity!

Make the party a BOOK SWAP, by having kids bring their unwanted books for trading...

Use the "give a book" "get a book" method to organize the swap.

Easy Apple Crumble

All American as Apple Pie
~Easy Apple Crumble~

Step 1:
Heavily grease your baking pan

Step 2:
Add a little vanilla cake mix batter.
~enough to coat the bottom

Step 3:
Add apple pie filling.
If the pie filling you purchase is lack luster, add your own spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar.

Step 4:
My pie crumble recipe is a "throw-stuff-in" kind of thing. ;) 
Use flour, sugar, cinnamon, add to melted butter, and stir with fork until you get crumbles. Start out with equal parts of flour and sugar and mix to taste.

Bake at 350 until golden brown and bubbly, about 30 minutes or so.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and whip cream.

Rustic Wedding Cake Ideas

Last wedding season, it seemed every cake was adorned with burlap!  Most of my weddings were rustic or shabby chic; two very hot trends in weddings right now.  

Here is a look at some rustic and pretty wedding cake and cupcake ideas.  I had a lot of fun creating these desserts.
