I don’t think that many people think about ordering a plain white cake from the bakery counter at their local grocery store. They automatically assume that they have to purchase one of the ornately decorated cakes in the cooler section. You know…those ones excessively covered in cheesy character decor and semi-terrible handwritten frosting? (Insert grimacing face emoji here). Granted, those grocery store character cakes do have a time and place at some events and gatherings, but, it is totally possible to eliminate A LOT of the work that goes into baking your own cake by ordering a white cake from the bakery and taking care of the decorating yourself. And did I mention, it’s super CHEAP and saves you a ton of time too? (Which I am ALL about!) For today’s hack, I used an old school candy favorite to transform this cake. This rock candy cake hack couldn’t be simpler guys. But it sure does transform a plain white grocery store cake into a fun little show piece when done.

I couldn’t be more thrilled that Summer is around the corner. I feel like Winter is holding on for dear life over here in Utah, despite it being JUNE, and I’m trying to be as patient as possible. But I can’t help getting caught up in all of the Summer planning. Barbecues, pool parties, picnics, and sports! I’m a HUGE sports girl and try to incorporate attending live games anywhere I can. Soccer is one of those fun summer sports that you can really get into. The crowd is a blast, the atmosphere at the games is electric, the food is amazing, and…BEER! Am I right?! Today’s post is all about incorporating all of those things into a delicious recipe for beer burgers with melted beer cheese.

One of the hardest parts of entertaining, in my opinion, is planning the menu. It takes a long time to sift through recipes, finalize a menu that is cohesive, and then figure out how to pull it all off without slaving away in the kitchen all day or during your entire event.

Plus, it also happens to be delicious!
