Kahlua & Mexican Chocolate Mousse by The Marshmallow Studio

Chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and Kahlúa… all staple ingredients in a Mexican kitchen.

AIDEN’S CAMPING ADVENTURE PARTY

Camping Party by TheMarshmallowStudio

It’s kind of fun when your kiddos are old enough to get involved in their birthday party planning.

My eldest son, Aiden, is obsessed with parties and entertaining. He’s always putting together little parties for his stuffed animals, setting up the table when his friends come over for play dates and he’s quick to volunteer in my Studio when I’m crafting. Every year (way ahead of time) he tells me what theme he want for his next birthday party.

For his 6th birthday party he wanted a CAMPING PARTY!

5-minute Rocky Road Cheesecake by TheMarshmallowStudio

My friends, there’s a time and a place for everything!

Sometimes I go all Thomas Keller and sometimes I go all Sandra Lee. If I’m making French macarons, there are no shortcuts or semi anything. I make those delicate, little cookies from scratch. When I make cake pop balls, I use cake mix for my dough. No need to make a cake from scratch when I’m just going to crumble it and dip it into candy coating.

Let me tell you about my latest semi-homemade adventure…
