How to Make a Cupcake Stand

Build-A-Bear Cupcake Tower
Cupcake towers has been a trend at special events lately. I've looked at cupcake stands online and they can cost you from $20 to $70 depending on the design. So, here's a quick tutorial of how I make my cupcake stand. You can customize it to match your theme or whatever the occasion you are celebrating. Plus all the materials are very cheap. I think it cost me less than $5 for everything. The foam boards were on sale at $1 each and I had the ribbons on hand already.

Easy Cheese Rolls (Porto's Bakery Inspired)

Have you heard of Porto's Bakery in Southern California? My husband's co-worker recommended this place to us when he heard we were planning a trip to Legoland and Sea World. After a quick check on Yelp and finding out it's rated 4-1/2 stars out of over 2,000 reviews - we decided to add it to our itinerary.

We tried their most raved about items. The cheese rolls and potato balls did not disappoint. Between these two, the cheese roll will be easier to make at home since driving 6 hours to Porto's is out of the question when we crave for it.

Here's a super easy version I made. Only three people have tried it so far and have compared it to the original - me, my husband and a friend. Their feedback?
