COTM: Gluten Free Ice Cream Cone Cupcake

I am so excited about this cupcake, not only because I did them in ice cream cones. A first for me. But I dyed the icing with food. These would be great for a birthday party. Now you all know I love to play with my food. The icing is a butter cream, dyed with blue berries, and tomatoes. Yes, Tomatoes. Both foods are dried, and then put through a coffee grinder. The purple of the blue berries is amazing. A very deep purple. What was really cool was, the boys were helping me grind the blue berries, and tomatoes and putting them into the icing, they saw how the icing naturally changed colors. They got the see the purple getting darker and darker, Loved the look on Tuckers face. Love cooking with the boys.

Amazing isn't it?

Cupcake Of The Month
Ice-Cream Cone Cupcakes
by Marcie Dingerson

1 package of safe ice cream cones, you will need 12.

3/4 cup rice milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pumpkin
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
Mix, then add
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups Bob's All Purpose Flour Mix

I put the cones into a bread pan standing up. I filled the cake mix to the top and baked at 350 for about 30 minutes. I would start checking after 25 minutes.

Top with butter cream or the icing of your choice.

I used this recipe today it covered 6, may have covered more, I also halved the recipe, so double for full batch.

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups corn free powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk (I used a tad more)

I divided the icing in half and dyed half with grind up died blue berries, and the other half with grind up dried tomatoes. Add a teaspoon at a time until you get the color you want.

Today was kids fish day, Grandpa likes to take the Grandkids, and we tag along because there is no way they can keep their eyes on all 5 Grandkids.

This was Tucker catching his last fish.

Cole keeping busy, running around saying Mom Take My Picture.

More Fishing.

Mom Take My Picture

Tucker catching his first fish.

MOM how much longer?

Ethan coming off the dock, after catching both of his fish.

The kids and the fish. What is funny and I guess I didn't catch it, is all these fish are cleaned. Well taking photos, one of the fish jumped, Abby jumped, everyone screamed. Oh it was funny.

When I started this project it was because I wanted to play with my cricut and I wanted to practice a certain stitch on my sewing machine. And then it grow and grow. Photos do not do this quilt justice. I absolutely adore this quilt. So in love with it. But sadly I decided long ago if I got the quilt done, I would donate it to the school auction. So sometime this week it will be handed over, and hopefully it will bring in some money for the school?

But of course I had to show off the quilt. So wish you all could see it in person. Would you believe that this cost maybe 30 dollars to make? I had to buy backing fabric, and I had to buy the batting. Everything else came from scraps.

Look's Who's Cooking

My Little Naked Chef was in the kitchen tonight making dinner. Oh how Cole loves to cook.

Notice these are waist high shots. I don't call him my little naked chef for nothing.

Tonights dinner was Tuna Noodle Cassarole, with no tuna.
