We are loving Elena of Avalor： Feliz Navidad! In partnership with Disney Books， we were asked to come up with a fun sweet treat that celebrates the beautiful Latin and Hispanic-inspired culture featured in this special holiday book. We came up with these easy and adorable cupcakes with a surprise inside. The Pi？ata Cupcake!
Here’；s every detail that you need to prepare this festive treat!floral pillow cases
You don’；t need a lot of fancy tools to make these cupcakes but you do need：
When your cupcakes are completely cool (or purchased un-frosted from the bakery) use the huller to cut a “；core”； out of the center of the cupcake. Go about 2/3 of the way town into the cupcake and set aside the “；core.”； Fill the cupcake with candy that is moisture resistant. You can push it in a little bit. Remove the bottom of the “；core”； and press the top back in place on the cupcake. If you have spaces， or the core breaks， you can cheat by just piecing the cake together on the top. It will be covered by frosting. Set your cupcakes aside.
We used a selection of pre-made neon fondant. Once you have your fondant preparednursery lumbar pillow， break off a ball about 1″； wide. Knead the dough with clean hands until pliable and form into a ball. Roll the ball into a log. On a clean surface (counter or Silpat) lightly dusted with powdered sugar (with a power sugar coated rolling pin) roll the log into a flat strip， as thin as you can work with. Cut the bottom long edge straight or press flat with a straight edge.
Use clean kitchen scissors to snip fringe in the bottom edge of the strip.
Continue adding layers of fringe. Use a damp finger or paper towel along the top of the strip to help the layers stick together. Not too much water. Cut the entire piece with a round cookie cutter， or use a template and cut with a knife. The cookie cutter really helps here.
Frost your cupcakes with a generous mount of your favorite cupcake frosting. Carefully use a small spatula or knife to lift the fringe onto the cupcake and press lightly to set in place. If you press too hard， some frosting will peek through. oops! You can carefully reposition fringe with a knife if you want.
Isn’；t that fairly easy and so pretty？ And as Elena learned in the end…； It’；s not all the gifts， The food or decorations， But the spirit of dessert， that marks this celebration. Wait， not dessert， it’；s LOVE! My mistake.
Take a big bite and watch pretty candy spill out just like a pi？ata! It’；s so much fun.
In Elena of Avalor： Feliz Navidad， Elena decides to host one big Navidad celebration in the park so that everyone can celebrate together. But each community is more interested in proving that their traditions are the best. Can Elena help her subjects see what the holidays are really about？ I won’；t give away the ending but Elena shows that she is learning to be a thoughtful， resilient and compassionate leader. Love that girl!

Intro: Single thread knot (running stitch) is used in most cases of sewing. The strength of a connection depends on the strength of the thread. A double thread knot sewing technique and help with stronger connections. Sewing machines are fast and precise for a large amount of sewing works, but we still need to do hand sewing dealing with fabric for some detail works. Hand sew beginners often find it time consuming making knots and finishing. This report will show some basic techniques that can be used for better connections and faster processes for hand sewing.
Bizzy Bubs just came out this week and are the closest thing you’ll get to Fingerlings. This time, though, instead of cute animals, they’re cute human babies that wrap around your finger, crawl, walk, and fart. It’s all the silliness of Fingerlings, but perhaps even more relatable.?“They’re going to be huge,” Byrne says.
“As a huge fan of TV period drama – often more for the wonderful costumes and sets than the storylines – I am delighted to see the wide-ranging influence of the Art Deco art movement on film, fashion and home this Autumn. This glorious period for the arts was unafraid of audacious style and celebrated opulence. Our Deco Charm theme attempts to capture the magic of that era and deliver the look in a glamorous yet affordable collection that works for the modern home.
