It’s beginning to look a lot like Avengers, everywhere you go.

I think you all know that we’re big Avengers fans here. We’re big Marvel fans. I gasped when I saw Stan Lee go by me in his wheelchair last summer. I couldn’t think of a single thing to say! We see ALL of their movies in the theater, and I was so happy last year when Thor: Ragnarok came out and it was the first time we saw a Marvel movie as a family of four. In the past, we had gotten a sitter for both kids, or for the last couple of years, a sitter for Des. He loved the movie! It has some darkness and it’s long and the only way we could get his morale up was to tell him that Hulk was going to be in the movie.

He is a fan and I am a fan! These Hulk Smash Cupcakes would be perfect for any superhero party or movie night. We are SO excited to see Avengers: Infinity War and we have our tickets for Friday. It’s actually a big week for us, and I’ll be talking on my blog tomorrow (tonight at midnight, actually) about one of the most important topics in my entire life, if not THE most important one. So I hope you’ll tune in! It’s a personal one. Anyway, it’s time for the cupcakes. Don’t they look smashing?

(See what I did there?)

Ingredients:

1 box of white cake mix, any brand
1 1/4 C. water
1/2 C. vegetable oil
4 egg whites
Cupcake liners
Green gel food coloring
Purple gel food coloring
White frosting, any brand
12 oz package of Wilton green candy melts
Wilton 1M star frosting tip
Disposable piping bag
Avengers silicone mold (I suggest purchasing 2 in order to cut down on the candy making time)
12 count muffin tin

Instructions:

1 – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the cupcake liners into the muffin wells

2 – Combine the cake mix, water, vegetable oil and egg whites, and mix well

3 – Add in the several drops of the green gel food coloring and stir to combine

4 – Fill each cupcake well about 2/3 full and bake for 18-20 minutes

5 – Insert a toothpick into the cupcakes around 18 minutes. If it comes out clean, then the cupcakes are done!

6 – Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool

7 – Pour the Wilton green candy melts into a microwave safe dish

8 – Heat in 30 second increments, stirring occasionally until melted

9 – Carefully spoon the melted chocolate into the Hulk fist section of the mold

10 – Place in the fridge to set about 20 minutes

11 – Remove from the fridge and gently pop the fists out of the silicone mold. Repeat this process until you have 16 fists total

12 – Add a few drops of purple food coloring to the white frosting and stir to combine

13 – Attach the star frosting tip to the disposable piping bag and fill with purple frosting

14 – Gently squeeze the frosting from the bag and onto the top of the cupcake in a circular motion

15 – Place a Hulk fist on top and repeat with all cupcakes

*Makes approximately 16 cupcakes

5 Party Hacks and the BEST Cookies Recipe You’re Going to Want to Try

These 5 party hacks will show you how easy it is to entertain this spring and summer! Also, these brown butter toffee chocolate chip cookies are the BEST on earth! People will be begging you for the recipe! #ad #RKPlasticWrap

You know by now that we’re party people!

Right? Right. We love attention to detail. Like at our wedding when people started getting hungry again, long after the cake was cut, and we served mashed potatoes in martini glasses with a rolling cart filled with toppings. That was magical. And I’ll never forget the kids’ birthday party a few years back, when we had had games, bounce house time, cake, and presents, and then Cassidy came out with a cotton candy machine. Right then and there! Details matter. And we love parties a lot.

To put it mildly.

Recently we fell in love with the new Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap! I was reading about how 64% of consumers (us) use plastic wrap at least a week. I’d say in my case it’s more like once a day! And yes, the experience is frustrating, or at least it used to be frustrating! I’m well known for my uneven tears, unusable sheets, sharp sheet cutters (ouch), and other headaches. This new plastic wrap eliminates those headaches for good! Look how easy it is:

Tada! It’s pretty awesome. Now let’s talk party hacks. This Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap is actually going to help you with more than one party hack. Ready? Ready. Here are our five favorite party hacks for spring and summer!

1 – Having ice cream at your party? Of course you are! You can banish ice cream freezer burn by draping a sheet of plastic wrap over ice cream before sealing and storing. There’s nothing worse than freezer burn with party ice cream!

2 – Having flowers at your party? Of course you are! Keep your flowers fresh by wetting a paper towel, wrapping it around the bottom of the stems, and wrapping it completely in plastic wrap to keep them fresh until you can display them.

3 – Cooking for your party? Cover your tablet or phone in plastic wrap to create a “splatter guard” when you’re using online recipes in the kitchen. With plastic wrap around your touchscreen, you’ll still have full functionality!

4 – Are you using bananas for your party? You should! Banana bread, banana pudding, banana ice cream, and banana splits all make wonderful party recipes. To slow down the ripening process for bananas, wrap the stem in plastic wrap, which acts like a greenhouse. Plastic wrap helps contain ethylene gas, which bananas produce naturally when they ripen.

5 – Make one incredible recipe to have everyone talking! These Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies are UNREAL.
