My super funfetti 29th birthday!!

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!!!

Now PARTY TIME!!! Anyone wanna come celebrate?!?!

Lets whip up some SHORTBREAD COOKIES!

There are just TWO WEEKS until Christmas! I am both SO EXCITED and SO RUSHED because I have so much to squeeze in. Bake exchange at work, baking for family dinners, baking my favourites for ME to snack on! Shortbread is my all time favourite Christmastime snack, especially because it’s so easy to make on a whim with ingredients you almost certainly already have!

And with chocolate chips and sprinkles, even happier!

What you need:
1 cup of Butter – room temperature
1/2 cup Icing Sugar – sifted
1 1/2 cup of Flour
1/4 cup Cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla
1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips and/or Sprinkles (I choose to add both for extra colour!)

How to make them:
1. Preheat oven to 325°F and grease cookie sheets
2. With an electric blender mix the butter and icing sugar until quite fluffy. Then add in the flour, cornstarch, salt, and vanilla until everything is combined. Hand mix your chocolate chips and sprinkles.
3. Scoop your dough out with a spoon (balls should be about golf ball sized) onto your greased cookie sheets, and flatten with a fork. Add extra sprinkles to the top. The recipe makes ~36 cookies
4. Bake for 15 minutes. Cookies just be just barely golden when you pull them out of the oven. Let them cool (if you can!)

These cookies are so fluffy and yummy. I personally like to throw them in the freezer and think they taste even better somehow when they are chilly. Enjoy! xox
