Hey, in case anyone has birds and/or squirrels to feed, Costco has roasted, unsalted, in-shell peanuts right now for <$6 for a 5-pound bag!

It’s a great price, as most in-shell peanuts I’ve found are at least $1.50 a pound, and sometimes much more than that. And these peanuts are actually meant for human consumption, so they’re good for if you want to snack on them as well!

So, yeah, they’re Sachs brand, they’re $5-something (at least at my local Costco), and they will make some bird friends very, very happy.

  4. Add egg whites a little at a time, mixing between each addition and then add vanilla.
  5. Alternate between adding the dry ingredients and the champagne to the creamed mixture bowl (1/3 dry, mix, ½ champagne, mix, etc.).
  6. Divide the cake batter into two 8-inch pans and one 6-inch pan.

  3. Scoop frosting into a decorating bag fitted with a #809 tip and set aside.

Time to decorate!

  1. On a surface prepared with wax paper and powdered sugar, roll out marshmallow fondant to about an inch thick.
  2. Use a small square cutter to create square fondant shapes. Do the same with a small triangle cutter.
  3. With a small paintbrush, cover a few of the squares and triangles with diamond luster dust and then place some edible diamonds on top of each triangle.
  4. Gently cover remaining squares and triangles with gold leaf and silver leaf. Place each decorated triangle onto its corresponding square.
  5. Squeeze a large dollop of frosting onto each cupcake and then dip some into gold sanding sugar, some into silver, and some into white.
