It’s been a while since I showed off Cupcake, my Animal Crossing New Horizons island. But I’ve been hard at work earning Bells and filling it to the brim with all sorts of sweet goodies!
So get your golden ticket out and lets get ready to enter the sugary candylicious world of Cupcake Island!!
I didn’t have any big plans or expectations of what my island would be other than sugary, fun, and happy! The island took on a life of it’s own and kind of turned into a scene out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! There’s so much candy, colour, and well chaotic fun that I hope it makes Mr. Wonka proud! 😀
Let’s jump in! In the middle of the island is the big cupcake with all the shops and my house as the cherry on top!
Outside of the cupcake is all the fun islands (hard candy, ice cream, donuts, a creamsicle, lollipop, cookie and a sundae!) surrounded by colourful paths, chocolate mazes, fudge filled rivers including the “chocolate tube” (made of cliffs and waterfalls) from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where Augustus Gloop lived my dream of being sucked up a tube of flowing chocolate!
My house is still pretty small right now, because I’ve spent most of my money on ramps and sweets! XD But here’s what it’s like right now.
I’ve even packed up a couple of treats to send you off on your way!
Thanks for coming by! If you’d like a personal tour, comment below and I’d be thrilled to have you over!
Yesterday I turned 29!! Which I can’t even really believe! When I was a kid, 29 seemed the most ridiculous age possible~ so far away and SO OLD AND MATURE. I DEFINITELY feel young at heart and happier than ever. I didn’t spend my actual birthday doing anything SUPER AWESOME because I had to work and then went to sleep very early.
BUT…. TODAY WAS VERY EXCITING! And full of sprinkles and rainbows and excitement!
I made some homemade ice cream very first thing this morning. Because it’s my birthday! So ice cream is a must! 😀
There are only two ingredients needed: heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk. With a handmixer, whip the heavy cream (half a litre / 16 ounces) until you get little peaks. Then add in a whole can of the sweetened condensed milk until the mixture thickens up.
Finally, add in your favourite flavours! I added in sprinkles into this batch, but other favourites are broken up peanut butter cups, chocolate chips, broken cookie bits, the possibilities are totally endless and yummy. Throw it in the freezer for a few hours until it’s fully frozen and THAT’S IT (I don’t even buy ice cream anymore because I can make infinite ice cream)!!!
Next up… I baked my colourful cake!! I ended up using a cake mix (which of course is far easier, but honestly just as tasty). I added 1 1/4 cups of water, 1/3 cup of avocado oil, and 3 eggs, mixed and tah-dah!
By this time, I was HUNGRY! So I saved a little bit of the cake batter and made Hello Kitty waffles!! I’ve had my Hello Kitty waffle maker for a while, but haven’t had a chance to actual use it yet. I added MORE sprinkles for more fun. Look how cute and colourful!!!
