A Month of Birthdays

March is a big month in our house! Birthdays, birthdays and more birthdays! Eric, my brother-in-law, and nephew all share the same exact birthday. Eric then has three cousins with March birthdays and I have a cousin and an aunt with (you guessed it) March birthdays. Happy Birthday to you all!

Plus not to mention March is this little blog’s little birthday! All these birthdays mean lots of fun and lots of celebrating! I love any excuse to celebrate anything, so of course I am in hog heaven right now!

I hope you have enjoyed a few more giveaways this month to celebrate things and since March is sadly coming to an end I thought that this last week should strictly be devoted to none other than the single most popular celebration food, cake (man that was the longest run on sentence ever)!

This week is all about cake! Cupcakes, cake pops, frosting, cake themed giveaways, and more.

First up itty bitty Brownie Bites with Peanut Butter Frosting. I going to be honest here folks and the frosting in this recipe is really the star of the show here. Use a boxed brownie mix or your favorite homemade recipe just make them tiny (because it’s cute and everything tastes better when it’s cute) and defiantly don’t skimp on the frosting!
