To Link Party, or not?

I'm thinking about hosting a weekly "linky party".... Just wondered if anyone would want to play?  I'd hate to sign up to host and then have nobody play. 

{Thinking out loud here.} 
I'd really love to drive some more traffic to my blog.
And with Summer coming I know I'm going to get busy~ and it's hard to keep the blog updated. 
This would keep new ideas coming in. 

If you don't know what a linky party is check out some of these sites and come back and let me know what you think?

Thanks and have fun!

pretty little cakes

Speaking of Birthdays this week, my baby girl, Sunny is turning one on Thursday!  I really wanted to make cupcakes to take to daycare (not that she will really know or care, but I can't help myself).  I have been looking online trying to find something with some sort of a "Sunny" theme to it.  I couldn't find anything I liked, until today. da da da....

The instructions were in Japanese or Chinese, I'm not sure which. 
But you get the idea from the pictures.

It's so perfect~ girly, yellow, sort of like a flower and a sun. 
It's easy, cheap, edible and baby girl loves pineapple!

I hate coping other people pictures, but when I'm in the middle of cooking I always forget to stop and take pictures. 
 I've also decided that I suck at photographing food.

Happy Birthday Sunny!

Homemade Oreo's

1 Devil's Food cake mix
2 Eggs
¾ Cup Shortening

Combine and roll in large marble size balls. Bake at 350 degrees on a cookie sheet (sprayed with a non stick cooking spray) for about 10 minutes. Let cool.


4oz Cream Cheese- softened
1 ½ Cups Powdered Sugar
¼ Stick Butter- softened
Food Coloring~ optional, fun to do green for St. Patrick's Day.

Whip with beater and frost one cookie, sticking another to it to make a sandwich.
Makes about 2-3 dozen depending on size of cookies. Can easily double (can easily double your pant size too, but so worth it!). You can also roll the edges of the cookie in sprinkles right after frosting for a fun look.
