Update-Site Construction!

Hey guys!

I just wanted to update you guys, as you all know by now my blog isn’t exactly in the most productive state it can be in. I have been slacking off when it comes to blogging and updating my blog. It lacks in TLC so I am going to try and be better about it, so over the next couple weeks I am going to slowly work on updating the pages and the overall productivity aspect of my blog and how I share things. I apologize that I have been a slacker, but don’t leave me just yet. Hopefully you will be seeing a few subtle changes over the next period of time as I slowly overhaul certain parts of the blog!  Again Thank you guys for stopping by, don’t forget to Check out my Youtube Channel Burst of Sunshine where I will still be uploading regularly.

P.S. This construction and updating of my blog will not affect the weekly blog post that is posted, it will just be affecting the actual pages on my blog. There will still be updated blog posts throughout the next few weeks so stay tuned for those!

How To Make Pumpkin Roll Sandwiches! (& Pumpkin Roll Cake Pops)

 

pumpkin-roll-sandwichesWoohoo! It can official be considered holiday season! Thanksgiving is less than a week away and no one is more excited then THIS GIRL! I LOVEE Thanksgiving (AND CHRISTMAS). However I thought I would switch it up with desserts this Thanksgiving and experiment with something alittle different. Every year around the Holidays me, my sister, and my grandmother get together and make all kinds of candy-including Pumpkin Roll. So I decided to try and do a twist on the traditional Pumpkin Roll and try to deconstruct it in a cute way!

I have made these cute Pumpkin Shaped Pumpkin Roll Sandwiches! They are delicious, and taste just like Pumpkin Rolls but they are sooo cute and simple to make. While not trying to be wasteful I took the scraps of cake left over from the actual roll batter that I cut out and crumbled it to make some delicious little Pumpkin Roll bites of goodness!

So Today this is not only one recipe-but two! So as always you can watch the video I have provided for you from my Youtube Channel ‘Burst of Sunshine’ or you can find the recipe below!

How To Make A Buttercream Paw Patrol Cake!

paw-patrol-cake

Hey guys, its your own personal Burst of Sunshine here! I’m here today ready to show you a new cake that I made for an adorable little Paw Patrol fan! This is a super simple buttercream cake that is perfect for a kids party at any age. Because it was buttercream and not all fondant it was a huge hit with the kids, especially since fondant is a hard sell on some people.
I did not write out a full blog post on this cake because it would be extremely long, so it would save me and you both time if you just checked out the Youtube video I made on my channel “Burst of Sunshine” to see exactly how I made this cake step by step.

So sit back, relax, and watch the magic happen!

*& by ‘magic‘ I mean: me learning how to make cakes as I go, winging it, and making mistakes… as I am not a professional nor have any training AT ALL*


ENJOY!
