Push Pop Tutorial

First the craze was cupcakes....then cake pops....now I am seeing push pops everyone on the party scene/blog world.  Of course, I had to try them out!  Here is a tutorial for you in case you are planning on making them....there are a few pointers!




Start with your clean push pop holders - I got mine from Garnish - I {heart} them!
(the flag band is from
tweedledeedesigns.com -
 originally ment for paper straws)


Last night I baked the mini cupcakes using my mini-muffin
pan with no papers.  I used blue food coloring for the blue and 
left the others white.


You can certainly make your own...I am more of a semi-homemade gal 8)


I have a ton of piping bags, but I still tend to use a see thru baggie
for my piping -  HINT 1: I suggest NOT to just spoon the frosting in
it will tend to smear.


HINT 2:  Don't overfill your mini muffin pan, you will have to cut the tops off
of all the cupcakes in order for them to fit correctly, then you are stuck with an 
entire baggie of tops (which you put in the freezer for cake pops later!)


Pu a small dab of frosting on the bottom of your push stick, having
the stick pushed all the way to the top. Then insert your cupcake.


Pipe in your frosting - you can add sprinkles now if you would like to.


Pulling your push pop down so there is room for the next cupcake.
Then the 2nd cupcake - HINT 3 - I used too much frosting in between so I got
this smear look..less is more! .YUK to the eye...


Add your last bit of frosting to the top and your toppings. 
Put on your top and set aside. I set them all upright until
I was done and they all went in the refrig after.


Here it is with the band on...covers some errors...LOL


2nd one, much better than the 1st..kinda like making
pancakes... doesn't the 1st pancake always look sad compared
to the rest...lol


Cupcake Tops - FREEZE THEM or give them to your kiddies to munch
on!


There you have it....these will be enjoyed tomorrow
at our 4th of July Playdate!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
