The Oscars and Brownie Popcorn Bags

This Sunday was of course the time of the Oscars and I could not have been more excited! I had been asking Matt and his family for the past couple of weeks if they were excited to watch them.... although they were not that excited they still put on a good face and pretended to be excited for me! For me the Oscars are the only award show that I allow myself to watch and get into. I think they are the most legit and really entertaining to watch.

For this award show I decieded to mix it up and try another one of Bakerella's recipes! This week Malia and I tried Brownie Popcorn Bags! This seemed a little easier than the Valentine's candy box... of course I blame Jenny for getting me hooked on this blog! Everything just looks so cute! And if I had the money and time I would try everything she puts up! Maybe in a couple of years I will have a full out Oscar party and make yummy treats and dress up!

Here are pictures of our efforts to create the popcorn bags!

This is what we were aiming for!This is the template Kevin Ho (Matt and Malia's dad) made for us since we did not have time to find the cookie cutter!The final product! I think they turned out really well! The red was a lot of brighter in person but my camera is stinky! But really I think they were great- although eating them was a bit of a sugar overload I think next time I will use a different frosting- one that tastes a little better!

I also really enjoyed watching the Oscars with The Ho's! Also, a shout out to Sandra Bullock! I really really love her! And I thought she did a great job in 'The Blind Side'! Also, congrats to all the other many many winners!


  1. I love that you love the Oscars. I shouldn't be surprised though seems as how I love the Oscars. But a little secret (and please don't hate me) I like the Golden Globes more.

  2. Oh of course I don't hate you I was thinking about watching this year because of Ricky.. but I just couldn't do it. So as of right now the Oscars are on the top.

  3. Oh, and by the bye, the picture of the Oscar statuettes (or should I say one statue with a figure holding on to the other) reminded me of the awkward statue at Chatsworth. I don't really know why, but I got that same vibe.


Thanks for taking the time to comment- I appreciate and read each and every one of them. All replies will be in the comment section, please check back to read them!
