Valentine Soap

I made Valentine soap!  It is so easy.  These are the instructions that I

If I make it again I would want it to be thicker so I would use a smaller loaf pan and I would add more Peppermint extract so the smell would be stronger.  However, the recipe works perfectly. 

This is how I wrapped mine using parchment paper and ribbon.  A fun gift to share or just to have in your bathroom for Valentine's Day.

A friend at school found out this week she is having a boy.  I couldn't wait to make her a little something to celebrate knowing what the baby will be.  This is the boy version of the crown monogram.

I do like the blue and green together :)

I love Bakerella.  I use her recipes often because they are so delicious and foolproof.  These Red Velvet Cupcakes are on her latest post.  

The recipe can be found here.  She also gives cute, free printable hearts to use as toppers but I didn't want to make those tonight.  I used some "Lips" I had on hand.

My husband gave them the taste test and they passed with flying colors.  I even used her Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting.  I may use it from now on.  It makes enough to "lavishly" frost 2 dozen cupcakes.

 I hope you have a fun weekend!
I have lots of studying to do this weekend.
