DIY Cupcake Holder

My niece loves the show DC Cupcakes. So when her family came for a visit, we waited in line for hours to get our chance to enter the store. It was actually worth it. It was so fun to visit (pack into!) this iconic (tiny) store, pick out what we wanted and then take our […]

Oreo Turkey Cupcakes

Once we woke up to our car being covered with Oreos. My husband had made the mistake of telling some of the youth at our church about his glory days, which included taking the cookie side off of an Oreo and and sticking the frosting side to a car as a practical joke. Major waste […]

Halloween Poke Cake

Helloooooo Made From Pinterest fans! I’m so excited to be sharing again with you! I love this time of year. Fall is my favorite time of year and we have the fun holidays coming up that we can make so many yummy things.

I saw this fun cake recipe on TasteofHome, but it called for a marble cake box mix. For the life of me, I could NOT find a pre-made marble cake mix, so I came up with my own and it turned out so yummy!

The cake mix is incredibly moist and features a chocolate buttery frosting that this trick-or-treater delight will keep you coming back for more!

  3. Evenly spread the white cake batter on the bottom of the pan. Next, take the chocolate cake batter and spoon onto top of white batter. With a knife, swirl the batter back and forth.
  4. Bake for 25-30 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  5. Remove cake from oven and cool completely.
  6. Pour gelatin in a small bowl and add boiling water. Stir until gelatin dissolves. Stir in ice cold water to the mix.
  7. With a wooden skewer or meat fork, poke holes in the cake about 2 inches apart. Slowly pour the gelatin over the cake. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours before frosting.

  1. With an electric mixer, beat butter until creamy and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, cocoa, milk, and vanilla and beat on low and slowly increase to high speed until frosting is smooth and creamy. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Reality set in pretty quick. But we three moms here at MadeFromPinterest are still pretty dedicated to making cool memories with […]
