Spring and Easter Cupcake Wrappers and Toppers

Spring is in the air!

Oops.... I mean, SNOW is in the air.  That's right.  We have a winter weather advisory tomorrow.  I am day dreaming of Spring though, so I made some Freebie Spring and Easter Cupcake Wrappers just for you.  I am going to make some Easter cupcakes this year... right after I get back from SPRING BREAK in San Diego! 

Enjoy these pages and if you need help with how to print them, cut them, tape them, use them in any way,

check out the tutorial I have done:  here.  There are also many other Spring freebies from

years gone by here!





I was looking at Amazon for some fun stuff to add to my post.... and LOOK at what I found!  Super cute for decorating the tops of cupcakes and that pink stand is something I REALLY want.  No purchasing for me right now though... first comes vacation!

Giveaway and Great Tutorial Videos

Hi, Cookie Bakers (and Want-To-Be's)!

I saw a great giveaway on Facebook today, so I went to check it out.  I was supposed to Tweet about it to enter, but I don't Tweet, so I am posting about it here.  I REALLY want to win because the goodies are SO me.  But, I also think you will benefit from Sweetopia's awesome new video channel on YouTube. 

 I have been flood-filling cookies for years and I never quite get the consistency thing down.  Flood-filling cookies can be a bit tricky if the consistency isn't just right.  It is super annoying when you get the icing in the decorating bag only to find that it is too thin or too thick and you have to take it out of the bag and fix it.  Well, Sweetopia has a video that shows exactly how to determine how thick your icing is BEFORE you put it in the bag.  Why didn't I figure this out years ago?  LOL! 

Anyway, to check out her giveaway, go to her site... here. And to check out her videos, you can go to her link below her giveaway.  I really think it is a good one!
