Rainbow Birthday Party

Once again I haven't posted in a while and I have a good reason. Well I think its a good reason. My daughter turned 3 and my baby turned 1 and so I have been planning and working like crazy to put together one party that would fit both of them. We ended up having a rainbow party. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.

So here are a ton of pictures! The banner, cause I always have a banner...

I also sewed 3 fabric banners to hang up around the room...

A rainbow of fan circles for the background of the food table(idea found here)...

Devils Food Caramel Cookies

This is my first time participating in the Secret Recipe Club. I got assigned Miranda from Biting Life! I have been so excited to participate in this and was so excited to check out a blog I haven't been to before! Miranda not only makes recipes she finds other places but is also so creative she comes up with her own recipes! 

I went through so many of her recipes and finally decided to make something that not only sounded delicious but was so simple. Dark Chocolate Caramel Cookies. Its made with a cake mix and the only cake mix I had on hand was devils food cake so that's why my recipe has a different name. Go check out Biting Life and find something you want to make!

Devils Food Caramel Cookies
Recipe Source:

1 - 9oz pkg Baking Caramels
1 box Devils Food Cake
2 Eggs
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Powdered Sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with a silpat mat or parchment paper. In a medium bowl mix the cake mix, oil, and eggs together until just combined. It will be really thick, you need it like that to cover the caramels.

2. Take a caramel and cover it with the dough, rolling into a ball. Roll the dough into the powered sugar and place on the prepared cookie sheet. The cookies don't spread out very much so you can fit 12 on a cookie sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes.
