Ice Cream Lollicakes!!!

In light of the gloomy, rainy, cold, icky weather, I decided it would be a PERFECT day to make some super cute ice cream Lollicakes!!! (run-on sentence, sorry!)

I followed the same steps in my previous Valentines blog EXCEPT I shaped the cones by hand instead of using a cookie cutter.  I tried my best to make them around the same size and they're not perfect, but the melted candy coating that will cover up the imperfections!  I also made balls separately for the top of the cone ...dip them the same way as before...

And don't forget, you can use different colored candy melts to mimic the different flavors of ice cream!  and you can add sprinkles to spice it up!!

..a side note.. I learned that when you have excess cake shavings that you would like to re-use/reshape, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds so they're warm, it'll help all the little pieces stick together nicely.  I learned this because my last batch of balls started to crack when I  inserted the stick or they would fall apart in the melted candy cup.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!

cheap and easy [temporary] privacy window covering

Who would have knew how many uses there were for GLAD Press'n Seal??  I've never actually purchased or used this before, but decided to copy a neighbor and use it as a temporary privacy window covering.  We ordered shutters and lucky for us, our order lands over two major holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which gets our installation date in early January.  We've got windows EVERYWHERE in our new house and our next door neighbor can see into our living room window, as can the neighbors from the street... Our shutter company, unfortunately, didn't give us those temporary accordion shades, but some plastic that purely acts as a privacy covering- it prevents people from seeing through however doesn't do much with regards to blocking the sun from shining in.  They only provided them for the bathrooms and master bedrooms [boo].  So much for the other 16 windows in the house... In comes Press'n Seal!  It's sticky on one side and it easily sticks to the w

our back yard project

We've always wanted to have a small house party, but felt overwhelmed with just 5 people in the living room.  In comes MY back yard project because I was tired of dust blowing into the house and staring at that ugly cinder block wall...not to mention that project that the previous owners started and never finished (see lower right hand corner of photo below).  Eric took ownership of wanting to decorate and 'spruce up' our living room, making it feel really homey and welcoming.  So MY project was the yard and my vision to make it less drab.  Our yard is teeny-tiny and fits right in with our 3 bedroom, 1200 sq. ft. house.   Our friend had a landscaper do their back yard and he came highly recommended, so we went with them without question.  I wanted pavers, artificial grass and two trees/plants.  The landscaper recommended plants that crawl on the wall in effort to sooth my Issue with the cinder blocks...  I wasn't satisfied...  So I hunted and surfed the web for
