Reese's Pieces Birthday

(Invitation made by Ashlee over at )
This post is a year late! I threw this party when my 2 year old turned 1. A year later I would have done a lot better taking pictures of the different things I did, but oh well, you learn something everytime! I think I'll do this party again someday when she is older, becuase after all, her name is Reese!
The Table:
The banner:
The cake (this was made with a cookie pan) Was Peanut Butter Pound cake with chocolate frosting and Chocolate fondant.

The craft: We made our own Giant Peanut Butter cups. Using coffee liners we poured chocolatein the bottom, then placed (already prepared) flattened P.B rounds in the middle and topped off with more chocolate. Then refridgerated to take home

My cutie scared of the candle.
I know 1 year olds arn't "supposed" to have peanut butter, but with a name like reese she couldn't be allergic! And I'm not a paranoid mommy.
The game. I had everyone right down as many Reese's Peanut Butter product they could think of (including holiday shapes) in 1 min. (I can't remember now but I believe I had found 43 different kinds) and the winner got that huge candy bar pictured below.

Teapot Cake

This teapot is actually hollow like a real teapot. Made out of chocolate then covered in fondant, the lid comes off to fill with candy! The base (table) is the actual cake! It was a fun challenge to take on!

K + N Engagements

This is my new favorite couple! We'll maybe I'm not being fair because she's always been my best cousin, but they seriously are so cute together and I can't wait till their wedding. This was my first EVER photo shoot so I might overload on pictures but I am so excited!


So last Christmas Santa brought me the best gift ever.

Then this week for my birthday by husband got me the part that will change my life.

I've had this dream to get into photography for a little while. Its an expensive investment, so slow and steady. Now I'm saving for classes and a nice lens.

Now, I've learned about my camera, taught myself about Exposure, Aperture, ISO, yada yada, but you still need time and experience. But I was an idot and offered to take my cousins engagement pictures to help on cost. Little did I know that she would take me up on it and I found myself taking their pictures a week later. Luckily we now live close to a cousin who gave me a crash course in Photoshop the day before! I actually am very pleased with the results and have no probably telling everyone that I am proud of myself!

Straight from the the Camera: After my new photo shop skills: A little boulder enhancement

Better than 'Better than Sex Cake'

I know everyone has a "Better Than Sex Cake" recipe, but I need to share with you my perfected version. This one gets everyone to say "MMMMMmmm THATS good.

What you'll need: 1 Devils Food Cake mix, 1 large Cool Whip, 1 jar caramel (I prefer smuckers), 1 can sweet and condensed milk, and 5-6 skor bars/ heath bars chopped.

Bake you cake in a 9x13 pan. Once its cooled you cube it into 1 inch sections. Place half on the bottom of your trifle dish. Then pour half the can of sweet and condensed milk across the top, THEN half the caramel. Yes BOTH my friends, I know some of you out there use one or the other, I'm telling you right now, USE BOTH! then sprinkle with skor pieces, then cool whip.

Repeat this step all over again. But make this like 8 hours ahead of time and let it sit in the refrigerator so it can SOAK all the goodness up!
