My sister and I have a weird love of cute monsters. If she was home I would definitely make her cupcakes and top them with these DIY free printable monster Valentine’s Day flags and toppers. I like how the monsters make this download a little bit different and more boy friendly. Ellinee of Handcraft Your Life made a whole party kit so don’t forget the candy wrappers and stickers!

Have you jumped on the salted caramel bandwagon? I feel like everything is suddenly marketed as having salted caramel in it and honestly I am a fan! I love the salty sweet combo!

I think will have to make these cupcakes and see for myself if they are worth doubling the recipe as Paige of Style suggests. The best part is that the toppers, shown to the left, are included in the original blog post!

Free-spirited Annie Quintana and sophisticated Julia St. Clair come from two different worlds. Yet, as the daughter of the St. Clairs’ housekeeper, Annie grew up in Julia’s San Francisco mansion and they forged a bond that only two little girls oblivious to class differences could—until a life-altering betrayal destroyed their friendship.
A decade later, Annie bakes to fill the void left in her heart by her mother’s death, and a painful secret jeopardizes Julia’s engagement to the man she loves. A chance reunion prompts the unlikely duo to open a cupcakery, but when a mysterious saboteur opens up old wounds, they must finally face the truth about their past or risk losing everything.
