Ice Cream Cupcakes

Here are the ice cream cupcakes I made for Father's Day. It's a chocolate cupcake liner, a brownie inside topped with some mint chocolate chip ice cream, then frosted with buttercream frosting with some sprinkles.
I coated some silicone cupcake liners with some melted chocolate (1 c. chocolate chips with 1 T shortening). Then put them in the freezer to harden. Once harden, peel back the silicone and you'll have a chocolate cupcake liner. I used about 15 cupcake liners.
Then I baked some brownies in a mini muffin pan and cool them, and then popped them into each of the chocolate liners. Put everything in the freezer. Then top it with your favorite ice cream and buttercream frosting and freeze.
I thought that brownies sounded good, but I think I'll just stick with cake instead of brownies because the brownies were really hard to eat once frozen.
It was so easy to make! You must try it! =)

Father's Day

We celebrated father's day a little early because Jacob was on call for the weekend. We took Jacob out to eat at Mary's Market and then to Cold Stone Creamery! YUM! The girls each drew a card for Jacob and hid it under his pillow so they could "surprise" him! They love surprising their Baba. I was able to find a cover that actually fit Jacob's 1st generation ipod touch to give to him for father's day. On Saturday Jacob really wanted to make some Mexican food, so of course I let him cook =). It was delicious. Chicken, beans, and rice with some homemade salsa. I also got our friend to babysit Saturday night so I could take Jacob to eat some Red Mango and to go see The Green Lantern. We had a lot of fun. On Sunday Jacob was lucky enough to be able to attend church with us and was able to come home for dinner. I made Chinese food and some ice cream cupcakes for dessert.
Here are some pictures of us at Cold Stone.

Natalie's Drawing

I can't believe that Natalie can now draw! It was so funny watching her draw her Baba, Mama, and Grandma. She said that me (the mama) is going to have curly hair like her Baba. And she was cracking up laughing while drawing me because she thought I looked funny after adding in my mouth. Then she drew grandma and said that it was a sad grandma. So cute! I am so happy to be at home with my girls and getting to witness Natalie drawing actual recognizable figures for the first time.
