    Chocolate Cakesters with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

    How do they do it? How?

    I look at some of these other foodie blogs and think…wow..how do they get it baked, cooked, get all the props perfect, the picture perfect, edit, label, post it, be everywhere being social and oh..take care of their kids too?!  It’s amazing. I am in awe. Honestly.

    As you can see by above photo, at times, I attempt to keep an eye on a 2 year old and take pictures of desserts. This is not an easy task. This week, as been even crazier than normal around here.

    Today, instead of having super duper well kids back at school….I had 5, yes, all 5 back home sick.  It’s a long story that will bore you to tears, so, I’ll skip it.

    So, my so-so schedule that is regularly kept regarding blogging has flown out the window. Gone. Bye! Bye! Let’s hope the next few days get us back in gear and I can join my online friends once again.

    Speaking of desserts…here is one for ya.  The original recipe for this states they are Homemade Oreo Cakesters.  They don’t include Oreos, but, darn, they do taste just like the cakesters.

    The frosting is simple and will want to  eat with a spoon. Make them and they just go to town!

    You will have finished them before you know it.

    {Just a side note, if you don’t want to make the homemade frosting, any creamy vanilla or cream cheese frosting will go well}
