Happy Birthday Jesus Pancakes

 If you are searching for a new family tradition for Christmas then look no further.  Our family started making "Happy Birthday Jesus Pancakes" three years ago.  The first two years I made regular pancakes and added sprinkles but this year will be much different.  

Instead of using a pancake mix we are truly having a birthday party when we use a cake mix and home made frosting and sprinkles to celebrate our Kings birthday.  

Thanks Rachel Ray who inspired me to make these pancakes:  http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipe/birthday-pancakes/

This is very simple all you need is a yellow cake mix, sprinkles, powdered sugar, vanilla, butter, milk, and candles.  

Make the cake mix as directed then add sprinkles.  (My picture does not show the red,green, and white sprinkles very well.)  Cook the cake batter just like pancake batter.  Make a frosting drizzle with the remaining ingredients.   Here is a recipe you can use for Frosting.  (This recipe does not use butter but I did because I like it a bit more creamy and I added green food coloring to fit the Christmas colors.)  Mix and taste till it fits your taste buds.  :)  


Add the frosting to the pancakes, add more sprinkles, put on the candles and then sit down Christmas morning and celebrate His birthday like you do your children's by singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Each family member also gets to blow out candles for Jesus.  Your children will ask for these pancakes again... yummy cake for breakfast no complaints at this house!   

My daughter was concerned because we did not have enough candles for Jesus!  I love her innocence and heart!  Maybe next year we will buy the number candles!

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway!  (#1 rated scrapbook software)  The above is one of the scrap pages I have created.  Super easy and super fast.  I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book.  I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments!  The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes!  :)  SO EASY!   Here is a great video explaining more about the product.  There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online.  The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create.  :) One feature t

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
