When Madge has her nieces and nephews over they always want to craft. This go round we opened up the Sculpey Oven Bake Clay and let them get to work. It is so fun to see how creative these kids are. You can actually see their little minds spinning while they are creating.
As you can see there are so many colors to choose from. The possibilities are endless with this awesome clay, plus you get to keep your creations forever once you bake them in the oven.
Watch just how easy it is to create with Sculpey Oven Bake Clay. Madge's niece Rythymm shares with us what she made and how she made it.
Now didn't you just love what Rythymm made? This mermaid is so cut and fun, she is so proud of it. I am not sure if you could tell by her expressions on her face but she loves this mermaid and can't wait to create again!
I told you that my nieces AND nephews love to create with Sculpey Oven Bake Clay! Check out this little 5 year old, his name is Kulia and he made a truck! Just look at the twinkle in his eye, you can see that he is on cloud 9 and so very proud to show off his awesome truck!

If you like fish, you are going to L-O-V-E this recipe. The topping on this fish is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. And, the coating of sliced almonds adds a delicious crunch. This dish will surely please even the pickiest of eaters. (My kids even ate it!)
Don't be deceived by the pink color of the fish. That occurs after placing the fish in the yummy juice based marinade. A quick dip in egg, flour, and lastly almonds, and you are ready to bake. Then the magic happens! The Cherry Man Cherries blend perfectly with the green chile peppers and other ingredients of this simple yet mouth watering topping.
We don't want to toot our own horn But...oh my stars! Not only does this fish taste DIVINE, it just looks so darn pretty! We suggest pairing it with rice and your favorite veggie. And, this flavorful fish looks waaaaay harder to make than it actually is! Trust us, if we can do it, so can you!
We would be crazy not to mention our adorable recipe cards! Our sweet friend Laura Kelly designed them. Check out her amazing online shop. She has tons of cute printables and kits.
Last but certainly not least, we want to thank Cherry Man for providing all of the delicious maraschino cherries that we use in our recipes. We just LOVE them.
We hope you and your family enjoy this recipe as much as we do.
Can you say "scrum-diddly-umptious"?!! We can! It only takes one bite of these delicious treats and you will be hooked. The name may be a tongue twister, but this recipe is a people pleaser. You can't go wrong with these yummy bundles.
This recipe is chock-full of the tastiest ingredients (the name says it all). MMM MMM! But don't be fooled by the amount of components, these are really simple to whip up! *TIME SAVING TIP* If you are really in a hurry, you could use a boxed Chocolate Devils Food Cake, mix as directed And add the 1/2C chopped cherries to batter. Then make filling and bake as listed in our recipe. And we can't forget our perfect recipe cards designed byLaura Kelly! Check out her fun online shop!
Clearly we Love Cherry Man Cherries! There are cherries in the cake batter. You put a whole cherry on the center of cupcake before baking. Last, everything is better with a cherry on top! (whipped cream and sprinkles too!)
This is our favorite version, the Crumble! Midge broke a cupcake in half while taking the wrapper off. Of course you would never waste dessert so she threw it in a bowl. HAPPY ACCIDENT we say. It looked pretty good crumbled up. So we purposely broke another in the bowl. Put some topping on and ate it with a spoon. Pure Awesomeness. (You could even try this version on a bigger scale--Trifle style :)
We hope you will run out and try this recipe today! If you have a great Cherry recipe, we'd love you to share it with us!
