Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip


Want to know what my family's latest craving is?  It's this Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip.  Yep, believe it or not, it isn't something sweet or bad for you.  It is a creamy yummy dip with cucumbers and carrots.  Of course you can serve it with any kind of veggie or potato chip.

I have to give credit to my hubby for this one.  He made this snack last week.  We all devoured it and begged for more.  It is now a staple in our fridge for last minute snacks, additions to lunches, or late night cravings. It would be perfect for your upcoming pinics and BBQs.

Ingredients:
1 pkg. (1oz.) dry ranch dip mix
16 oz. Greek yogurt, plain
4 green onions, chopped
veggies of your choice

Directions:
1.  Mix dip mix with yogurt.
2.  Add onions.
3.  Refrigerate until served.  Serve with your favorite veggies or chips.

Build-A-Bear Cake

 
When my daughter turned 7 we had her party at Build-A-Bear.  Along with a big group of friends, they each picked out a bear or animal of their choice to create.  After stuffing, fluffing, and naming their new friend, we went to the food court for cake to celebrate.  To go along with the theme, I created this fun cake.

I frosted the outside of the cake with vanilla buttercream tinted purple.  

The turquoise accents were also buttercream.  
I used a #21 decorating tip to created the star shapes

The rhinestone ribbon I found at my local Hobby Lobby.  You can find it HERE.

The bear was created out of fondant.  
I started with a box of Wilton pre-made fondant and tinted it the colors I needed.

I hope you enjoy this cake and wish you and your kiddos many fun celebrations!
