Crock Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and knew we had to try it.  After I ad served some up and took a bite, I absolutely knew I had to share it with ya'll.  So as I went to reach for my camera, I realized it had no battery.....and pictures rarely look good the next day, so I whipped out my phone. Hence the crappy picture.  And please look past our ghetto paper plates.  Just know that this recipe is AMAZING.  I did make a few minor, like seriously minor, changes (dare I say improvements?  Ha!  It's all a matter of opinion right?), and I will list those to the side in ( ).

Strawberry Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream frosting

I found this cake recipe at apronofgrace. But it called for Cream Cheese frosting, and I am not cream cheese's biggest fan, so that led me to smells-like-home which has a recipe for white chocolate buttercream, and I felt like the two would pair perfectly.  And boy did they ever!  These cupcakes were divine!  My husband even said they were amazing without being asked how he liked them! Mine didn't turn out (color wise) quite like they did over at apron of grace because I didn't have enough red food coloring, but the taste was perfection!  Someone even asked if they came from a box, that, to me, and is a great compliment!

Easy Petits Fours

I love Petits Fours.  Any other little cake lovers out there!?  I have attempted to make these before and it was an epic fail.  So then I stumbled upon these on Pinterest at iambaker and decided to give them a go.  There are just 3 ingredients (if you are choosing to make your own fondant, and the creativity is limitless when it comes to decorating.  I made these yesterday for Valentine's day and only had time to cover 3 cakes (Oreo cakesters.  Easy, right?).  They were a gift to my hot Valentine.  We dropped a few off for him at work with some cupcakes!
