What you will need for the cupcake party:

  • Boxed Chocolate Cake Mix

IMG_1984First thing is to mix the cake mix according to the package.

  • 2 tablespoons of Milk
  • 3 cups of Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 tablespoon of Vanilla

IMG_1997First thing you do is cream your butter in you mixer with the paddle attachment.

IMG_2000Then add the powdered sugar and turn mixer on low-speed and once butter and sugar are combined turn to medium until well mixed.

IMG_2002Then add in milk, salt and vanilla. If frosting is too thick, add more milk; if it is to thin, add more sugar.

IMG_2004Last, dye your frosting green!

IMG_2006IMG_2007Once the cupcakes are cooled, its time to decorate! Here is what you will need.

  • Toothpicks

IMG_2026Done! How cute right? They are so colorful and everybody loved them!

IMG_2029I just love how both of the treats turned out and they were so easy to make! It took 15 minutes to make 50 of the Goldfish Carrots! I mean how simple and quick right?

Moving on! The next project was my FAVORITE! It is the Easter Basket for Brent.

IMG_2179I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out! It was super easy and Brent just loved it. It is a very stressful time for him right now at work so I thought it would be nice to give him a little surprise. Here is the pin that inspired me.

photo 1-1The pin takes you to My Keep Calm and Carry On. This is one of my favorite blogs! She is super cute and writes about all different things. IF you haven’t taken a look at her blog, go there as soon as you can!

Here is what I did for my basket.

What you will need:

  • 12 pack of your husbands favorite Beer
  • Esater Grass
  • Lots of things to stuff the basket with
  • Scissors
  • Permanent Marker

IMG_2060The first thing you do is to make the hole for the top of the basket. Tracy the opening on the top with the permanent marker and cut out the hole.

IMG_2061IMG_2062IMG_2063Remove the beer and put in the fridge. Then fill with the Easter Grass.

IMG_2064IMG_2067Then stuff away! I filled Brent’s basket with undershirts, a movie, beef jerky, toothbrush, deodorant,  and some of his favorite candy.

IMG_2180Done! It came out so cute and was the perfect man basket!

IMG_2068The last project is the Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt that I did for my husband Easter morning.

IMG_2089He was completely surprised and had a blast solving the clues! I think it made him even more excited about having a baby next year! Here is the pin that inspired me.

photo 2-1The pin takes you to Moms and Munckins. She has lots of party ideas and crafts for birthdays and so much more. The pin is actually for a child so I more just went with the concept. I found more adult like clues online by googling Easter Scavenger Hunt.

Here is what I did for my Scavenger Hunt.

What you will need:

  • Plastic Eggs
  • Clues
  • Scissors
  • Completed Easter Basket

IMG_2079First thing you do is cut out your clues.

IMG_2082IMG_2085Then fill the eggs with the clues.

IMG_2088IMG_2089Hide your eggs.

IMG_2095IMG_2098IMG_2099IMG_2100IMG_2101IMG_2103Put the completed Easter Basket at the end

IMG_2107DONE! Then the next day you get to watch then solve the clues! Brent had a blast and loved his basket!

photo-27IMG_2133I just love the way all my Easter projects came out! They were all so much fun and were all very easy. I will totally be doing the Man Easter Basket again and the Scavenger Hunt! Who am I kidding! I will do them all again!
