The Sugar Cube is a food cart in Portland that serves the most ridiculous and amazing sweets you’ll ever eat. Case in point: the Highway To Heaven cupcake, a chocolate cupcake injected with salted caramel, topped with bittersweet ganache, drizzled in coffee syrup and more caramel, and finished off with Ruffles potato chips. It’s not the easiest recipe you’ll ever make, but hey, getting to Heaven takes work. Check out Sugar Cube’s new book for even more crazy delicious treats! [Sweetapolita]

Not only does this DIY vanilla extract look delicious, it’s just about the easiest thing in the world to make, and if you have some vodka in your liquor cabinet, all you need to complete the recipe is a few vanilla beans. It takes a few weeks to darken up and bring all of that yummy vanilla flavor out, so if you make it now, it should be starting to get some nice color by Mother’s Day! [Bake At 350]

I instantly fell in love this whimsical flower crown, and the tutorial looks amazingly simple. Basically all you do is wrap craft flowers around a thin headband using floral wire: three supplies, about an hour, done. If this look is a bit too much for you, it’s easy to tone it down with less flowers and customize the colors and size to match your tastes. I’d love to try it with just a very small cluster of pansies and a few leaves. That’s what I love about DIY projects–you can always use a tutorial as a point of inspiration and then tweak it to create something that’s totally you. [Moda Veloce]

Weekend Project: Bubble Envelope Ipad Case

There are tons of cool iPad cases out there, but if you want something that’s totally unique, you gotta make your own. This tutorial for how to turn a bubble envelope into an iPad case is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most creative I’ve seen so far. All you need is a padded envelope, a couple pieces of fabric, buttons, a glue gun, and voila–a one-of-a-kind case for toting your technology. [Stylelist Home]

Amelia sent me the link to these chain friendship bracelets and now we are both obsessed and have sworn to make them this weekend. I love how the chunky chain adds some edge to the traditional woven friendship bracelet, and I’m excited to choose yarn colors and get started. Care to join our bi-coastal crafting bonanza?

Here are a few things I believe to be true: Baking is good, but not baking is better. Chocolate is good, but chocolate and peanut butter is better. Complicated recipes are good, but ridiculously easy recipes are better. Surely now you can understand how I’ve deduced that this recipe for no bake chocolate peanut butter bars is the best recipe, well, ever. [Tell Love And Chocolate]

This project was originally created by a mom who wanted to help her young daughter learn geography and keep track of the places she’d been, but I think it would work just as well for adults looking for a whimsical way to chart their travels and plan upcoming adventures. You can choose your own colors, hang it up, and use pins and string to illustrate your next epic roadtrip. As a visual person who loves to craft and travel, I’m salivating over the possibilities.

I know it’s super easy to go out and buy a lifetime supply of Cadbury Creme Eggs, and it may be a little Pinterest-y of me to suggest that it’s always better to make something yourself than buy it premade, but in this case, I’m pretty sure the extra work is worth it. First of all, the recipe calls for yummy, natural ingredients like butter, vanilla bean, and orange blossom water. Second of all, I can’t think of any two sentences more impressive than, “Care for a Cadbury Creme Egg? I made them myself.” [Not Without Salt]

Even though “glitter” and “flats” are two of my favorite words, I must admit I initially gave this project the side-eye, since I assumed they would leave a little trail of glitter wherever you walked (which might be kind of magical in its own way, but mostly annoying). However, the brilliant Sues from We Are Not Martha swears that isn’t the case: “The glitter is stuck on there like whoa (thank you Mod Podge!), and the shoes are still super flexible.” Sweet! Worries abated, I’ve got a pair of scuffed up flats that are about to get glittered like whoa. [We Are Not Martha]
