Celebration Cake Martini

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I hope everyone has an awesome time celebrating with friends and family tonight. If you need a fun drink recipe, try the Celebration Cake Martini. It is one of my favorites!

As I prepare to celebrate the beginning of a new year, I have been reflecting on the past year! I realize I was not on the blog much, and I am going to focus on changing that in 2014.

I do have some amazing reasons for not having time to blog as much. The first reason is that my cake business was quite successful this year. I was so blessed. I had cake and cupcake orders just about every week this year.

My absolute favorite cake of the year was Pac-Man!!

I  had a blast making this Monster cake for a 1st birthday!

Monster Cake 5

I also enjoyed making my first tiered wedding cake!

Speaking of weddings…that is another reason I have been somewhat absent from the blog world!!

I got engaged this year!!

Jamie knew the way to my heart! He knows I love surprises and he knows that the adults with special needs I work with mean the world to me. Not only did he surprise me with the proposal, he also included all of the adults at My Possibilities in the special day! There were lots of cupcakes, and all the women enjoyed getting their own rings so they could have one like mine.

I am so excited to be marrying my best friend!!! The big day is coming up in April!!

2014 is going to be AMAZING!!!

To my Megan’s Munchies fans…I deeply apologize for not being around the blog world as much. My days have been so busy with work, cake/cupcake orders, and wedding planning! I haven’t had much of a chance to create new treats to highlight on the blog. I did get the chance to create a new treat this weekend because we were iced in the house in Dallas. I promise that recipe will be posted this week. Until then, I thought I would share some of my favorite recipes I featured during past holiday seasons. Click on the recipe titles below the pictures to get to the associated recipes and blog posts. ENJOY!
