Natalee’s Summertime Strawberry Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on Jun 21, 2011 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I wrote her a few weeks ago and asked her to make me a cupcake worthy of the first day of summer. I have to tell you — this is my new favorite cucpake recipe. I may forever and always do strawberries. YUM. And, the ladybugs just were the perfect touch to these amazing cakes.

Natalee’s Memorial Day Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on May 28, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

My friend Natalee is a veterinarian living in Washington state with her husband and 2 awesome kids. Imported from Canada some years ago, she does things with cupcakes you just cannot believe.You can find her other amazing contributions to the blog here. I wrote her a couple of weeks ago and asked if she could do a cupcake for Memorial Day. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when she decided to do something with Forget-Me-Nots. These flowers are traditional memorials for Canada’s Newfoundland’s war dead instead of the Flanders Poppies that are popular in America. These cupcakes are beautiful. She named them “Red, White, and Blueberry Cupcakes with Forget-Me-Nots.”

Natalee’s S’more’s Cub Cakes

Posted by Hallee on Feb 12, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

Last week and this week, the Boy Scouts of America are celebrating their 100th Anniversary. I wanted to do something to recognize that, but with the church’s Valentine’s Day banquet this week, I was unable to do something “big” (like my idea for a cake with all of the logos of the different levels of Scouting.) Instead, I’m “stealing” a recipe from my brilliant cupcake artist friend, Natalee. Scouting makes me think of camping, camping makes me think of s’mores, and in a desperate attempt to be clever, I’ve dubbed these “Cub Cakes” (for the Cub Scouts…you get it…heh.)

Guest Post: Natalee’s Ben Franklin Birthday Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on Jan 16, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, homeschooling

I tried to think of ways to make a glass armonica, a furnace, reaching claw, and a flexible urinary catheter. I found that these tutorials although might prove amusing to me and to those who read this would not prove useful to most people performing cupcakery. Somehow a ‘congrats on passing the kidney stone’ cupcake just didn’t feel quite right. I did feel however the kite could easily be used for a spring party or a birthday party and the glasses could be a fun addition to an ‘over the hill’ party. Hope I haven’t embarrassed myself too much and I do hope that I get to show off more complicated cupcakery in the future, but these were fun, educational, and hey darn tasty too!

Natalee’s Oatmeal Raisin Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on Jan 16, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, homeschooling, Recipes

My friend Natalee agreed to do a guest blog for me while my husband and I ran away for a romantic weekend alone. When looking at the dates for the weekend, we discovered that one of the days fell on Benjamin Franklin’s birthday. As a tribute to this American icon, Natalee created a recipe using only ingredients that were found in Mr. Franklin’s time. She then decorated them in brilliant ways to show off Mr. Franklin’s contributions to history and culture. The post showing how to decorate them can be found here. This is a wonderful recipe to do with your children as a homeschooling aid.
