Twofer Challenge #38

Things are really looking yummy over at the Twofer Challenge.  As Marie Antoinette said "Let them eat cake!"  or in this case make a cake.  Or cupcake.  You choose.

I chose cupcake because that's the best stamp/die set I have that could be finagled to make two different designs.  It's the Layered Cupcake set from Altenew.

Here's the rundown individually.

I stamped the cupcake and added a flower from The Greetery over the icing.  For display, I put it in the nested dome from Waffle Flower. The background is from Catherine Pooler, embossed instead of cut and the tag and sentiment are from My Craft Spot (oob).

I stamped the cupcake and then didn't know what to do with it to make a different design.  Aha!  How about shaker card?  I know the cupcake is still in the middle but the surroundings are different. ;)  The sprinkles are from a tag die set from MFT and the little pieces are some I saved from a die that cuts little holes all over.  Now that I see them I wish I'd done more like that instead of the bigger ones.  

For some added fun, Darnell said we could include our favorite cake recipe.  When my kids were young they didn't really like frosting so I came across this cake that solved the problem.

Chocolate Pudding Cake
Cook one small box of chocolate pudding according to package directions.  
Mix in one box of chocolate cake mix, stirring well.  
Pour into 9 x 13 pan and sprinkle with one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips 
    and 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (optional). 
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  

It's moist and delicious as is but you could add whipped topping if you like.  EZPZ.

  5. I think I might be in trouble asking for these recipes because now I can't wait to make them! Like this one! Can someone say chocolatieeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?! Oh, yes, your cards! You can never have too many sprinkles on a cupcake, so I like them in small and large sizes, Bobby, and applaud you for saving and using such tiny bits ... you live up to your blog name! And I love the your flower-bedecked cupcake on regal display in the dome with a darling tag sediment! Thank you for playing in TCC #38! Hugs, Darnell

  6. That lovely bright bloom is a wonderful confection, Bobby ... and deserves it's individual dome to cosset it before it's eaten! Your shaker is so fun and celebratory ... all those sprinkly elements are scrummy! I'm not a frosting-lover either, so your recipe sounds yummy ... would certainly be happy to sample a slice or three of that chocolate cake!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer!
