Halloween Tortilla Chips

Cyndi of Lovely Lula here wishing you a Happy Halloween. I used  my Cricut Cake machine and a stack of round tortilla shells to cut Halloween shapes. I then placed the cut shapes onto a baking pan, salted them and then baked them into chips. I love this idea and will do it with other shapes for other upcoming holidays. For Halloween shapes use the October 31st Cartridge.

Happy crafting xoxo Cyndi aka Lovely Lula

Monogrammed Sweet Treat

This week, I thought it would be fun to use the Cricut Cake and make a few monogrammed cupcakes for my little ones. They absolutely loved the idea of having their initial on their cupcake. I think I will probably do this for them during the school year too and instead of bringing in plain cupcakes for their parties, we will put the first letter for all of the children in their class.

Here are the instructions:

1. Bake cupcakes as directed.

2. Add frosting (I used the pillsbury frosting in a can and it was great!).

3. Use the Cricut Cake Basics cartridge and cut out 2″ letters. Then cut out 2″ font shadows. Place on top of cupcake.

The Cake Basics cartridge has the alphabet, number and lots of shapes. Check out all the other fun shapes in this cartridge!

Have a great week and I hope you enjoyed the project.

Cricut Cake Makes Cupcakes Extraordinarily Fun

What makes cupcakes my favorite treat is that they are so fun to make. Recently, Cyndi and I got together and did them up funky style by using the Cricut Cake and Indie Art Solutions cartridge to cut out fun objects, like skull/crossbones, thunder clouds and eight balls. We used white fondant and colored it teal, while the butter cream frosting we made pink. They were too cute to eat~ (But we ate them anyway!)

Have a crafty good weekend!
