VDAY cupcakes!

Yummy Boobies!

This year I preformed in my schools run of "The Vagina Monologues" , and I ended up in charge of our charity bake sale! What do you make for a VDAY bake sale? Boobcakes! We had it right before we preformed, and with the cupcakes and brownies I made , we made over $60!! All proceeds went to the Domestic Violence center of the Santa Clarita Vally. I made 50 of these suckers! Since I'm on a tight budget here, I made these cupcakes with mix and soda, instead of adding eggs, butter, and water. They tasted just as good, and were super moist. 

More boobies!

To make 24 boobcakes, you will need....
One box of cake mix
One can of soda (sprite of light cakes, Coke for dark)
Tub of frosting
Pink colored M&Ms

-Preheat oven to 350Check Spelling

Combine soda with cake mix in a large bowl. Stir for 4 minutes by hand, and bout 1 with a mixer. Make sure you get most of the lumps out! pour batter into cupcake pans, and place into the oven for about 20 mins. Prick the center of a cake, and check for an even cook. Remove from oven, and place cakes on a rack to cool. Let stand for 30 mins to cool before frosting.

OK, so lets admit this first...I was a total anime fan girl when I was younger! Movies like KiKi's Delivery Service are still great comfort films for me, but for the most part, I'm out of the scene. 

Since I've moved out to California , I've been cooking just for myself (Max should be here soon!) And I've been trying to find tasty, yet healthy meals that are inexpensive, and quick to throw together. This lead me to start cooking Asian dishes, and THAT lead me to thinking about Onigiri. I had almost everything I needed to make them, so why not? Here are the results of my little cooking experiment.

Yum! Avocado!

I'm pretty happy with how they came out, and they do make an awesome snack! The recommended amount of salt was a little much for me, but that's an easy fix for next time!

OpArt blanket

Had to share, because I'm super happy with how this turned out! Max's cousins Dee and Will are expecting their second baby this March (first little girl!) So I decided to knit her a blanket. This was a super fun pattern to use, and its all knit in one giant piece in the round. I used a soft acrylic yarn so Dee could wash it, because ya know, babies are messy little buggers!
Yarn: Vanna's Choice 1lb 
Pattern: OpArt

All wraped up and ready to go! Look for pictures of the baby wraped up in it in a month or so ! =)
