{Sugar Bee} Everything's Coming Up Roses!

I am definitely not the one with the green thumb in the family....my husband has that area covered! Thank goodness, because I can't keep a plant alive to save my life. But, I CAN create roses out of chocolate....which might be even better because they won't wilt. Though, keeping them out long enough to enjoy looking that them before devouring them might be the challenge!

{Sugar Bee} Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

My kids LOVE cherries (this has been a recent discovery), but of course who doesn't, they are sweet and fun to eat, especially when they are in a yummy beverage. Therefore, I have been dying to make some cupcakes for my kids using cherries. So I made a classic chocolate cupcake and topped it with a cherry-almond buttercream and decorated it with a chocolate covered cherry. I especially love how the frosting turned such a lovely shade of pink! My kids devoured them....children approved!

{Sugar Bee} Margarita Cupcakes

I am bringing cupcakes back! 
It has been a while since I have focused on cupcakes and I have decided that it is time to put some focus back on the little cakes once again! This last week I had the pleasure of whipping up some cupcakes for a housewarming party to go with a Mexican food theme. So because I knew this was an adult-only party, I immediately I thought, margarita cupcakes! These sweet treats are full of delicious lime flavor with the most important ingredient, tequila! Though they won't get anyone buzzed, they do add a bit of the margarita flavor to the cupcakes. Garnishing was easy with the addition of a lime wedge!

{Sugar Bee} Thin Blue Line Sugar Cookies

The thin blue line means a lot in my household and so creating these cookies was very special to me and a way to honor all police officers and show my love and support.
 
Thank you to all of the men and women who put their lives on the line everyday to protect our community. 
We love our police officers and appreciate all that you do!

{Sugar Bee} Birthday Cake Sugar Cookies

These cookies were so much fun to make and knowing that they were going to individuals who make a difference in our children's lives everyday made it even more special. Happy birthday to the lovely teachers receiving these birthday cake cookies!

{Sugar Bee} Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

These may look like normal sugar cookies, but after months of research, planning, and practice, I have finally mastered the gluten free sugar cookie! I felt the need to figure out a recipe that eliminated the pesky gluten that plagues many bellies and intestines, making it impossible for them to enjoy delicious sugar cookies! I mean, how can one go through life without eating scrumptiously cute sugar cookies?! So for the sake of rectifying this situation for my wonderful neighbor's daughter, I created these little gluten free cupcake cookies just for her to start of the Halloween season early. And in case you were wondering, she gave them a big thumbs up! Yay for gluten free sugar cookies!
