Monday (we) Made It!

I haven't made anything crafty (the crates are still sitting in the backyard and the clipboards are begging to get covered) but every Monday on my day off, my 2 kids beg me to bake something. So bake we did.

All I had left was some vanilla cake mix so I thought I could jazz it up with a bit of Nutella. Do American's have Nutella? Its a chocolate hazelnut spread that is totally yummo.

So the kiddies mixed and licked and slurped raw batter and I luckily had enough to make 12 cakes:)

The baking cupcakes

Finished cakes. Yes I know they are upside down, but when they were cooking, the Nutella sank to the bottom and when I pulled them out of the pan,the Nutella was stuck. I had to reinsert it with my finger (insert inappropriate giggles here hehe)

Nutella icing on top - YUM!

Hopefully sometime soon Ill actually make something crafty. As these were cooking, I had a flash of inspiration for my crate seats. Will hopefully have it done by next week!

  1. Nutella = YUM! Your cupcakes look delicious. I pinned a recipe for nutella popsicles and can't wait to make them for my kids.

    PS- I too have crates and clipboards waiting to be made from last July. :)
