Fancy Jello Shooters

It was my mom’s birthday last week.  I had a dinner party for her with my family.  For the party I made these Jello Shooters that I had seen over at not martha.   But of course, my version had booze in them.  Well, duh. Here is what I used for my shots.  I got Naval oranges, which I think were too big.  Plus they had that pesky “naval” that made for a big hole in the end of my halved orange.  I think if I do them again, I will use clementines or some other small orange/fruit.  Then, because...

My Version of the Scary Spider Cake

I found this cake on the internet and thought it was ADORABLE!  So I wanted to make it for my boys on Halloween.  But all the steps in making this cake are really quite over kill, if you ask me.  It really was not hard to do and I didn’t need all the fancy smancy Wilton supplies, cake boards, etc.  So I wanted to share my version so that those of you who are NOT Martha Stewart could achieve the same cute cake.  I know Halloween is over for this year, and I should have posted this last week,...

We started out by spray painting the box so it would go from this: To this: Some spare computer parts (can you tell we have small kids…look at all those scratches!!) We taped the battery pack for the lights to the inside of the box.  We thought putting it in the center of the back would be the least obtrusive, but it ended up getting moved since we had too much stuff in the box when we were done and it needed rearranging. Then I started putting the lights in place.  But it kept pissing me off and I had to pass it off to Bob.  LOL This is where the hot glue gun was really helpful.  It secured all the gadgets and lights...
