Funny Find Flashback Moment!

My 2 year anniversary with my Cricut Expressions is approaching fast and I happen to find a picture of my very first project I did with it!  I can remember how intimidated I was in using it.  I have to admit, I put it back in the closet for 5 months, because it intimidated me so much (these little boo’s were the best of the batch that were not stuck to the mat and ripped due to my lack of knowledge on pressure and speed settings).  I have come a long way since then, thanks to the help from My Pink Stamper Tutorials I found via “google”.

I make these cupcakes every year with the exception of last year since we threw a huge party and I went a different direction.   Usually, I would pipe “Boo or RIP” on the little chocolate grams tombstone, but in 2010, I decided to cut the sentiment and image and fasten it to the tombstone with the help of a candle-lighter to melt the edge of the chocolate enough to attach the images. They easily peeled off the chocolate goodness to be eaten.

Thanks for sharing a piece of “remembering meeting my bug for the first time” pie with me.

Recipe:

Cricut Cartridge: Simply Charmed (don’t know the size, but guessing around 2 inches.)

Boxed chocolate cupcakes (I used Devils Food Cake)

chocolate frosting

Keebler chocolate grams

Oreo Cookies (made into crumbs)

Halloween candy pumpkins

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
