A Baker’s Dozen.

YummyLuckyCharmTreatPops
Lucky Charm Treats- such a cute idea for St. Patty’s day. I love the pop of color that the marshmallows bring to an otherwise bland looking desert. Here the treats are shown as pops, but I prefer the adorable Bundt Cakes that Tori Spelling suggested (recipe below).

I’m feeling in the baking mood. MSM and I have been working on converting our little abode into a real home (as opposed to the bachelor pad dorm room vibe it did have). All this nesting is pointing me right towards the kitchen. YAY. This is a great sign that I’m starting to feel at home. I love to bake.

I’m not embarrassed to admit that I adore Tori Spelling. I met her when I was a makeup artist and honestly, she’s one of the sweetest most genuine people I’ve ever met. Not to mention she is fun and HILARIOUS. After working with her I decided to read her book, sTori Telling , which cracked me up cover to cover. I haven’t watched her reality shows (I can’t stand reality TV), but I do follow her on instagram and today she posted this:

Um HELLO. YUM! And so Spring with all the pastels. Marshmallows and Pastels scream spring to me….maybe because of Peeps? Anyways, these look so yummy I want to share the recipe with you:

Mini Lucky Charm Bundt Cakes

  • 4 cups Rice Krispy Cereal
  • 4 cups Lucky Charm cereal
  • 16 oz. mini marshmallows
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Directions

  1. Separate some of the Lucky Charm Marshmallows from the cereal. You will need a small handful for each bundt.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows on medium heat. Make sure you stir every 15-30 seconds until the two ingredients are combined.
  3. Add in Rice Krispy and Lucky Charm cereal and mix until everything is coated in the marshmallow mixture.
  4. Put a handful of Lucky Charm Marshmallows at the bottom of each bundt.
  5. Pack about 3/4 cup of cereal mixture on top of the marshmallows.
  6. Put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Use an offset spatula so remove the bundts.

*Makes 10 mini bundts

I can’t wait to make these this weekend! Of course I’ll double or triple the recipe so I have plenty bundts to pass out at work on Monday.

What The Heck To Wear When Baking Spring Treats (or at least when passing them out):

To get into the mood, I will be wearing my Lilly Pulitzer Party Hopper Dress that I somehow miraculously snuck past Danielle.

PartyHopper
This was the best photo I could find of this dress online. Honestly I can’t believe there were any photos on line, since I purchased this piece about four years ago….

This is a skirt in the same fabric so you can see close up how adorable it is. I guess I have a soft spot for grasshoppers. We can blame my Sorority for that since the KD mascot is the Katydid. 

I ADORE this dress. It epitomizes to me the essence of a 1950’s house wife. Now I know women have come a long way to NOT be 1950’s house wives but honestly, every once in a while a nice day at home with abundant sunlight gleaming through the windows and bouncing off the high ceilings, music on, and  cooking and cleaning for myself and the man I love truly just feels so right. Sorry people….I’m old fashioned, I can’t help it.

When I pass out the mini bundts I will upgrade the dress to “adult” by paring it with my suede jade Manolos. Tori’s article was all about St. Patricks day- so these shoes will bring homage to her.

In case anyone wants to read more of Tori’s blog, here’s the link: ediTORIal

Don’t forget, before St. Patty’s day on 3/17 there is Pie day (3/14). We will all be bringing Pie into work that day- so I’m considering a savory pie like spinach pie or shepherd’s pie- since most people will probably be bringing something sweet. Any suggestions??
