Sometimes when it comes to DIYing your wedding you just want some projects that are simple and effective right? If you’re planning on making your own desserts and want to go a little bit more modern with it then why not dish out these fun decorated frozen yogurt pops?! I know a lot of people are ditching the traditional desserts and going for donut stands instead or ice cream vans so why not make yogurt pops a thing?! The best news is you can just buy a bunch of pops (or ice creams like magnums would work too!), decorate them at your own leisure, then pop them back in the freezer and forget about them until the day! Easy! Let’s get started shall we?Details
As March is upon us, (say WHAT it’s March already!!) it’s time to go searching for that pot of gold. No need to look too far – you can create your own pot of golden coins with this simple cookie DIY! They’re so easy to make and they taste absolutely delicious! Today, Lauren from Toast from The Host is showing us how to decorate these fun oreo cookies…
YOU WILL NEED:
Lay out a sheet of parchment paper and lay out Oreos on sheet.
If using a microwave, melt entire bag of White Chocolate Melts in Glass Bowl being sure to stir every 30 seconds until all chocolate has melted and is smooth. Spoon 3-5 tablespoon(s) of water to thin out chocolate. Continue to fold and stir chocolate until it is a smooth batter-like consistency.
Squeeze one drop of gel colors into bowl and begin to swirl both using a “figure 8” method using a toothpick or bamboo skewer.
Dip golden Oreos (once) into swirl mixture and lay flat on parchment paper to encourage the chocolate to harden. Need to move faster? Place in the fridge to speed up the hardening process.Details
I can’t deny that I’m a self confessed tea addict, by midday I’m already settling into my third or fourth cup and you and me both know that there’s nothing better than enjoying tea or coffee from a beautiful mug am I right?!
Ok well maybe enjoying tea or coffee from a beautiful mug with donuts and biscuits is slightly better but what can you do?!
These mugs would be the perfect gift for newly weds or you could even make them yourself for you and your other half!

YOU WILL NEED:
Plain white mugs (we got ours for 90p each from Sainsbury’s) // Gold spray paint (We used rustoleum) // Masking tape // Newspaper // A Cricut Explore and Gold Vinyl* // Wifey template PDF or JPEG // Hubby template PDF or JPEG //
*Please note: We’re using the Cricut Explore to cut out the wifey and hubby templates out of gold vinyl, if you don’t have a Cricut machine then you could try adhering some gold stickers with some sort of strong glue but we have no idea how well that would work or how long the stickers would remain on the mugs so we really recommend using the gold vinyl!
Using your masking tape, create a geometric shape on the bottom half of the mug and cover the rest of the mug up with your newspaper to keep it protected from the spray paint.
Spray paint the bottom part of your mug gold, allow to dry and then repeat with a second coat.
Oh em gee you guys, Christmas is creeping upon us and I’m so excited to start baking up some festive treats! Last week me and James made our first attempt at baking and decorating ginger bread men and let’s just say…I’m glad Deanna from Obsessive Cookie Designer is here today sharing her cookie tutorial and not me! These Christmas light cookies are absolutely adorable and would make super cute gifts or even festive favours!
YOU WILL NEED:
6 cups flour // 3 tsp. baking powder // 2 cups butter // 2 cups sugar // 2 eggs // 2 tsp. vanilla extract // 1 tsp. salt // 3 3/4 cups sifted confectioners(powdered) sugar // 3 T meringue powder(I buy at Michael’s) // 6 T warm water // Food colouring of your choice // A piping bag or bottle // Christmas light bulb cutter (we recommend Cookie Cutter) or a sharp knife if cutting by hand // Small craft wire (the one shown is from Michael’s, found in the jewelry section). Black licorice would work well as an edible version also. //
Cream the butter and the sugar then add the eggs and the vanilla. Next, mix the dry ingredients and add to the butter mixture. Mix well then chill the dough in the fridge before rolling out.
Cut into light bulb shapes (light bulb cutter available on Amazon or you can cut them by hand with a knife like I did!). Create a small hole at the bottom of the bulb with a toothpick, spinning the toothpick to ensure the hole is large enough to pass a small wire through it.Details
