Hello! I'm so excited to be posting here at Hungry Happenings while Beth is enjoying her vacation. My name is Brenda from SweetSimpleStuff and I'll be sharing my Bubble Gum Ice Cream Cones with you today! Well ... they aren't really ice cream cones, but they are made with bubble gum! Yes, tiny fake ice cream that won't melt in the summer heat!

There are certain things that just belong with summer ... hot weather, cold drinks, ice cream, backyard barbecues, trips to the beach, music from the Beach Boys and an Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini ... one of which I have never owned and do not see one in my future! However, this is an itsy bitsy teenie weenie item that I do own and you can too ...

Crawfish Cakes with Corn on the Cob Cakes by Amy of Living Locurto

Amy from Living Locurto created these adorable Crawfish Cakes and served them with Corn on the Cob Cakes at a summer crawfish boil. I thought they were a perfect summer treat and she wanted to share them with my readers. 

I am having an amazing time on my trip and will be home in a week. Each night I think I'll have time to write a little bit about our adventures, but then I open my 100+ e-mails, get bogged down and before I know it I'm falling asleep. I promise I'll write about it once I return home, but for now let's see how these super cute and easy crawfish and corn on the cob cakes are made in Amy's video tutorial.

Thanks Amy for sharing your fun summertime dessert.

Strawberry Soda Popsicles from Pint Sized Baker

Strawberry Soda Popsicles

Hello to all the Hungry Happening fans! I am Karyn, from Pint Sized Baker and Dieter's Downfall. You could say that I am total dessert fanatic! I've got sugar in my veins and frosting on my fingers. 
Strawberry Soda Popsicles
On Pint Sized Baker I like to make semi-homemade desserts that are fun for "Mommy and Me treats", like these cookiescakes, and cake pops.

On Dieter's Downfall, I make totally decadent desserts. I try to break down them down over three recipes and three days so that you aren't slaving away all day making it. The recipes can be made individually or combined as I've done is this example-

Homemade Creme Fraiche Desserts

Day one: Homemade Creme Fraiche - Day two: Strawberry Rhubarb Curd - Day three: Meringue "Cupcakes". Head on over and check out all my recipes :) Thanks!

Homemade Strawberry Popsicles

With the July heat, I've been making a lot of frozen treats. Ice Cream and Popsicles are a big must for me any time of year. They just seem so much more rewarding in the summer time. These Strawberry Soda Popsicles are so easy to make and tasted wonderful! 

If you love making ice cream floats or cream sodas, then these popsicles are a MUST! I simply added some vanilla ice cream to my popsicle molds, then poured in some strawberry soda and froze them. Easy Peazy!

Homemade Strawberry Popsicles Recipe

You could use root beer, coca-cola, or orange soda for a great flavor alternative. I'm sure any flavor combination would be great!

Thanks so much Beth for having me over today! I hope that you are having a great vacation!

Little Birdie Pretzel Snacks

Hi everyone, I'm Michelle from the blog Sugar Swings! Serve Some and I'm so excited to be here to share these fun little colorful birdie pretzel snacks while Beth is on her European adventure! Beth has definitely inspired me over the years with all of her creative food and dessert ideas, so it's really a treat to be sharing over here. 

Little Birdie Pretzel Snacks

I wanted something simple that everyone could make, so decided on these fun little pretzel snacks.  
Sweet and salty is one of my favorite flavors, and I've done pretzel snacks lots of times.  I made these Birds on A Wire Graham Cracker Cookies awhile back, so thought a little twist on them would be fun.

Honeycomb and Bee Cookies - Guest Post by Hani of Haniela's

Honeycomb and Bee Cookies by Hanielas for

Hello to all of Beth's friends! I'm Hani from Haniela's. I'm so super excited to be here today. When Beth asked me to do a guest post, honestly I was little scared. I had not idea what to create. As you know Beth's creativity is endless. She always comes up with such cool and unique ideas!

I absolutely love your blog Beth! You are an inspiration.

Honeycomb and Bee Cookies

While shopping I found a silicone honeycomb pot holder and I had my mind set on honeycomb cookies. I often find ordinary items and use them to create different cookie designs. Honeycomb pot holders could be used with fondant or gumpaste, as well.

3D Sandcastle Cookies from Munchkin Munchies

3-D Sandcastle Cookies by Munchkin Munchies for

When the very creative and talented, Beth, of Hungry Happenings, approached me about doing a guest post on her blog, I was very excited and honored! 

I wanted to do a summertime cookie relating to the beach, and decided on a sandcastle.  Though I have seen many cute and clever sandcastle cookies, I haven't seen any quite like this 3D version.  

One of the things I like best about this cookie, is the ease with which it came together:)

The entire cookie is edible with the exception of the toothpick flagpoles. I made the sand buckets from Starburst candies and the flags are chewing gum. The castle is a (1.75-in) mini ice cream cone (I don't know about you, but our sandcastles at the beach have always been made from overturned sand in a bucket, which looks very much like this cone version).

Ice Cream Cone Candy Pops - Guest Post: the Decorated Cookie

ice cream candy pops  

Hello Hungry Happenings readers! Thank you to Beth for letting me visit today. I'm Meaghan, of the decorated cookie (and a longtime fan and friend of Beth). My blog is all about simple but sweet food crafts, and I wrote the book Sugarlicious. Here is a sampling of what you'll find on my site:

My favorites to decorate are cookies and marshmallows, but following close are candy pops because they are so quick and easy to make. All you have to do is melt any color of candy melts in disposable decorating bags, pipe any design you like, add a lollipop stick and wait an hour. Instant, fun, kid-friendly treats for any occasion.
