Easter KitKat Wrappers

Easter KitKat Wrappers by chengand3kids.blogspot.com

Easter is just a few days away, and my little first grader's class is going to have a small Easter Egg exchange.

So I got some KitKat bars - the snack size ones -  from the commissary and started making these candy wrappers.

My kids and I love KitKat. So you can imagine how much we're looking forward to eating the ones that are not gonna be taken to school (I bought 2 bags of KitKat bars even though there's only 23 kids in the little boy's class).

I made these wrappers by using digital papers and elements from Akizo Designs, DigiTee Designs By Sheila, and Shery K Designs.

My little boy is excited to share them tomorrow with his classmates. I really hope the kids enjoy them! (^_^)

Mickey and Minnie Cupcakes

My oldest daughter Bea is graduating high school in a few weeks. Instead of going to the prom, she wanted to go on their Grad Nite, which simply means she gets to go to Disneyland with other seniors. :)

She and her friends wanted to wear Disney themed hair bows for this special event, so they went on a sleepover and made their own hair bows while watching some Disney movies.

These are her Alice in Wonderland themed hair bows. They turned out real pretty, don't you think?

And to make their sleepover a little bit more memorable, I made some Mickey and Minnie Cupcakes. Everybody thought they were adorable. :)

You can get the template and instructions on making the Mickey and Minnie chocolates here.

The cupcake wrappers are free printables by Cupcake Addiction and you can find it here.

I used Cake Mate Glitter Gels for Minnie's hair bow (neon pink).

For the cupcakes, I used Betty Crocker Devil's Food cake mix. I made and baked them as directed on the box.

Here is the recipe for the buttercream frosting. Recipe is courtesy of the Betty Crocker site.

Enjoy!

VANILLA BUTTERCREAM
FROSTING

3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

In a mixing bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the milk.

Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to  make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
