Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday eat sweeeeeeeeet, happy birthday to you!
Wheeeeeeeeee! I almost can’t believe it. Today marks eat sweet. by carla sue’s first birthday! On this day one whole year ago, I clicked on the publish button for the first time and my first post was catapulted into the big wide world.
As always, time is a bit of a funny thing. In a way, it doesn’t really feel like it has been a year, but then again when I think back on it, it seems like AGES ago. I hadn’t even started my final teaching placement, but a year later and I have finished my degree and began relief (substitute) teaching!
You know what? I’m not even quite sure what made me begin eat sweet. by carla sue. I know it wasn’t that long ago, but I can’t really place my finger on one single ‘ah ha!’ moment. Looking at other food blogs certainly inspired me. But being able to share my love for baking and photography, and also having the chance to play around with page design really won me over.
And to be honest, a year ago, I probably wouldn’t have thought that I would still be blogging today. But I’m so glad that I am! Creating eat sweet. by carla sue has not only encouraged me to try different recipes and practice my photography skills, but I have found so many wonderful blogs to follow myself!
So on this 1st birthday, I not only want to celebrate eat sweet. but I also want to celebrate YOU! Thank you for visiting, liking, following, and even clicking a link that may have led you to this page. I appreciate you!
In honour of eat sweet. by carla sue’s birthday, I decided on making something that is PERFECT for a party, and something that I have been wanting to make for so long! …Peanut Butter Cup(cakes)!
Now, don’t be fooled by this photo. These little ‘cupcakes’ are only about 3 1/2 cm high! The perfect size for little ones to wrap their fingers around, or for older ones to place a few in one hand.
I first saw these little babies acting as a cupcake topper, while I was looking through the ‘everything’ page on Pinterest (credit for the idea goes to Confessions of a Cookbook Queen). While I absolutely LOVE the thought of them perched on top of a mountain of cake and frosting, I thought, why not make the toppers and serve them just as they are?! A super cute mini peanut butter cup disguised as a cupcake! And they are crazily easy to make…
Peanut Butter Cup(cakes)
Recipe adapted from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures
Whipped cream (or you may like to use a yummy frosting instead!)
Red candy beads
1. Unwrap the peanut butter cup from it’s foil wrapping.
2. Using a piping bag with a star tip, pipe whipped cream or your choice of frosting on to the top of the peanut butter cup.
3. Top the whipped cream with sprinkles and a red candy bead.
I love these for kids parties. In fact, I would love to have them at a party of my own (if only I could have made these for my 21st birthday…they would have looked wonderful next to my Sweet Little Teacups!). And because these tiny treats are SO super dooper easy to put together, they make a great cooking activity to do with your littlies.
