"Some Pig!" cupcakes for Charlotte's Web

The one thing I love baking for as much as preschool snack day are school bake sales!
ESPECIALLY when there is a theme involved.  My bonus middle child is in a play this weekend! They are doing a production of one of my all time personal favorites, Charlotte's Web.

These are the cute little Wilber cakes I just finished making for the opening night bake sale.  I love their little personalities.  So adorable!  It is just a Devil's food with a basic buttercream frosting.  I didn't want to get too fancy schmancy since I was baking in bulk and my audience is going to be a lot of Elementary age kids.

I used the Wilton #11 round tip to make the head and the snout and a small leaf tip for the ears.  The nostrils are Nestle Toll House Mini Morsels.

I also finally got to try out using the Wilton Candy Eyeballs.  I kept seeing them in the store and finally picked up a pack.  They really did give these little guys a little extra boost of adorable!

Leftover Rice PB&J Pancakes

I made this for my kids today, they really loved it.  It is a perfect thing to do with leftover takeout rice. 

For the boy I made a short stack of peanut butter and banana: 

For the girl I made the classic PB&J and I garnished with a couple of banana slices.  I just made the layer in-between jelly and topped with the PB fluff: 

I'm pretty excited to finally have a use for the leftover rice as it seems we always have some leftover.  (If you use rice flour in the recipe, it also makes it gluten free!)

Rice Pancakes: 

4 eggs 
2 cups of cooked rice 
1/2 tsp vanilla 
1 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of salt 
1 TBS of coconut oil 
1 TBS of flour

Blend all ingredients in Ninja until smooth and cook like regular pancakes on med heat until cooked through. 

Peanut Butter Fluff* topping:

Equal parts PB and plain yogurt.
Sprinkle of Cinnamon
splash of almond milk to help blender (as needed)
Blended until fluffy (I used the single serve Ninja attachment) 

*The PB fluff is also a favorite on apple slices in our house!
