Creamy Caramel Toffee Dip
1 - 8 oz. Cream Cheese (softened)
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup White Sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Skor or Heath Bar Toffee Chips
Beat cream cheese, sugars and vanilla together until fluffy. Stir in Toffee Chips just before serving. Serve with fruit. You can make the cream cheese mixture ahead of time and keep in the fridge...just don't forget to add the toffee chips. They complete this dip! Store leftover dip in the fridge. It keeps well, the toffee chips just lose their crunch.
Speedy Race Car Birthday Cake!!!
It was my little boys 1st Birthday this week! I did a Race Car theme, because this little guy just loves cars. He loves to drive them back and forth with his little hands. This cake was perfect for our little racer! I got the recipe from http://www.familyfun.com/ . I just love Family Fun. They have got great ideas for birthdays, craft projects, kid games, recipes & a whole lot more!

I think the cake turned out perfect! The kids loved it! It was fun to look at, and of course to dig into. I love the crumbled oreo cookies for the track, and the green sprinkles were fantastic! I made my favorite Cream Cheese frosting that made it so tasty. I put my cakes in the freezer for about an hour before I frosted them, and I also dipped my frosting knife in water each time I dipped for more frosting. It helped keep the crumbs from the cake out of my frosting. I used white chocolate covered Reese's PB cups cut in small rectangles to make my dotted lines. I'm not a fan of the Good 'n Plenty's that the recipe called for. My cake sure isn't perfect like their picture, but it worked for me. My little boy loved it. He did eat a little too much cake, and was up a lot in the night with a belly ache, but hey...you're only "1" once!I had to include this picture of our little racer getting ready to open his presents. Isn't that just the cutest back side you have ever seen! He knew what was coming! He loved opening his presents. Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us. He even performed his new walking skills for everyone! We love you bud!!!
