The Best Cupcake ever

I was looking for a dessert I could make with things I already had at home for company. So after searching the web for a recipe, I decided to do a cupcake.
I know Cupcakes are all the rage right now but I am just not that into them.. until this one. 
They say necessity is the mother of invention and thus, this recipe was born. I combined about 3 different recipes to come up with this. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
Red Velvet Coconut Ganache Cupcake
Red Velvet cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 c sour cream 
1 1/2 C water
1/3 C canola oil
1/3 flour
Mix well and put in muffin pans that have been lined with a pretty liner not plain like I used, filling just slightly over half full
bake 15-18 min at 350. cool completely

 Filling: 1 box instant pudding mix ( I used coconut, but vanilla or chocolate would be great too)
2 C whole milk 
Mix pudding well and set aside
When cupcakes are cool use a piping tool and gently fill the center of the cupcake with the pudding If you get too much, the cupcake will plump up and crack (I actually practiced on a cracked one to get the hang of how much to use.
Frost with chocolate ganache
2 cups choc chips melted in 1 cup warmed cream. Mix well. add 2 c powdered sugar and a few more drops of cream if needed and mix til it is a pipeable consistency. frost your cup cake and top with toasted coconut if desired.

Buying a Chandelier

So, you have decided to purchase a chandelier,  you walk the aisles of your favorite lighting store and get confused... will it be too big? too small? is it the right style for my home? What color should I get? So many choices.
Finding the right chandelier Should not be so intimidating. 
Here are a few guidlines that should help. Remember they are just guidelines but really do help you get a sense for what you need. 
First look at all of the other lighting in the home, especially the lighting that will be near the new chandelier. Is it antique brown? bronze? aged bronze? Use existing lighting as the model for the finish and style for your new one. If you are going to replace lighting soon, then you have many more options. Go with a finish you like and build from there for the rest of the home’s lighting.
Finding the right size is crucial, you don’t want to put in one that is too small and have it look like an after thought. Nor do you want one so big it overwhelms the room. So here are some suggestions:
Measure the size of the room or area (entryway etc) 

~If the room is smaller than 10' by 10', a 17" to 20" diameter chandelier is recommended
~If the room is about 12' x 12', a 26" or 27" chandelier is best
          ~If the room is about 14' x 14', choose a 24" to 36" chandelier.
For an entry way or hall, the chandelier should hang at least 6-1/2 – 7 feet above the floor to allow people to walk comfortably beneath it. 

If your room has particularly high ceilings, you may need to hang your chandelier even higher to maintain harmony with the dimensions of the area
If the chandelier will be hanging in a dining room, measure the height and width of the table you plan to hang your new light fixture over.
 A dining room chandelier hung over a table should measure about 12 inches narrower than the dining table and have at least 48 inches of space from each of the room walls or edges.
A chandelier should hang about 30-36” from the surface of the table to insure no bumped heads, and to allow plenty of space for table centerpieces, and food. 

This height also provides the best illumination. If your ceiling is higher than 8 feet, be sure to mount the chandelier an additional 3 inches higher for each foot of ceiling. 

I highly recommend a dimmer switch especially in the dining room to create ambiance for dinner parties etc. It gives you the ability to make it brighter or darker depending on different tasks.

Remember these are just guidelines, many times the sales people in a lighting store are very helpful. Our local Lowes   has wonderful help in the lighting department. (no I am not getting paid to say that : )  Don't be afraid to ask questions. 
You are the customer and you deserve to be helped. Happy chandelier shopping.

Mission to Mexico Fundraiser

Hi gang
I am asking for your help in this little venture of mine to help our youth group raise money for a mission trip to mexico.  I have been on mission trips and know how life changing they can be. I think every young person should have the opportunity to go.
If these bracelets are not your style, there is so much more to choose from and a portion of other items will go to the trip as well
See more here

I have a goal to try to sell at least 100 bracelets in the next 2 weeks
