Namaste = Giveaway!

30 Jul

Do you love cupcakes as much as Whit and I do? We have been addicted to the new show “DC Cupcakes” on TLC lately. Katherine and Sophie are sisters and they own a cupcake show called Georgetown Cupcakes. These ladies are unbelievably talented. I think it would be incredible to have a job where you decorate cupcakes all day. Especially with your sister! How cool is that 🙂 Everytime I watch this show it makes me want to bake… and that is exactly what we did last night!  

 

 

Namaste Foods recently gave Whit and I the option to sample two products for free. So after debating over the many amazing products that this company offers, we decided on their Toffee Vanilla Frosting Mix and their Muffin Mix.

 Namaste is a company dedicated to creating delicious allergen free foods.
-Their products contain no wheat, gluten, corn, soy, potato, dairy or nuts.

You get more for your money.
-All of Namaste cake mixes contain two rounds as opposed to one in traditional cake mixes.

Whit and I decided to put these two products to use by making iced toffee nut muffins. I prepared the muffins while Whit made the frosting.  

 Let’s first take a look at the ingredient list. I was in awe that such a simple ingredient list could whip up such awesome cupcakes! With this ingredient list, I just followed the directions on the back of the package verbatim. It said to add eggs and water so I did. I did not want to chance messing up anything.

 These nutritional stats rock!

While the muffins were in the oven I decided to snap some pictures of the frosting!

 Once again such a simple ingredient list 😉

 

Homemade frosting is the best! And it is so fun to make…

Just look at that thickness… this is what you call REAL frosting!

 

 Once the muffins came out of the oven then I let them cool.

 Can you see the melted toffee chips?

 

Once the muffins were cool Whit and I had a frosting party and went to town. It is crazy but there is no way to frost ugly with this frosting. You just slather it on and it molds to the muffin perfectly!

 I must say that these take the cake lol!

 The frosting MADE these muffins. I saw Namaste foods the other day at Whole Foods so I definitely will be buying this frosting again for the next big event. Seriously guys if you want to impress somebody with a delicious homemade cake or cupcakes then buy this frosting mix! When I first looked at the ingredient list I was a little skeptical, but this really tastes like Toffee! YUM 😛

 

I do not know what it is about Fridays, but Whit and I always end up having pancakes or waffles! This mornings special was Van’s Belgian Waffles. We topped ours with plain greek yogurt, pumpkin, stevia, chocolate pb, and kashi.

 Fridays are the best 🙂

 

Today Whit and I went shopping with our mom all day. We went all over town looking for baby shower stuff. The shower is not until October, but there is so much to do! The party is going to be at our house. My mom always likes everything to be perfect so we have to start shopping when there are good deals, getting the house in tip-top shape, and planning. It is fun but also stressful. When we got home from shopping Ash was taking a nap. She had work all day so she was exhausted, but being the good sisters that we are we dragged her out of bed to workout. lol 🙂

 

For dinner we had chicken tacos. When you do not know what to make then tacos never fail in this household. We found the new Sun-Dried Tomato Laughing Cow so that is what I put in my taco. It was superb!
