You pinned, you created, you conquered! Thanks to everyone who took us up on our Pinterest challenge. Sure, we all pin tons of awesome stuff that we wish we could make, but we challenged readers and staff members to actually bring some of their favorite pins to life. The results looked amazing! We'll have to start crafting and baking more often...
Her Campus Mizzou staff writer Linnea Hardin made these yummy pink lemonade cupcakes. "They turned out pretty well!" Linnea says. "The frosting is pretty tart, so I didn't put as much on top as is shown in the picture on Pinterest. I ended up using just a little over half of the batch of frosting from the recipe. These cupcakes were easy to make and refreshing! I would recommend making them. Just know they are a little more tart than you may expect."
Junior Kelsey Cook made a map of Missouri using push pins and yarn. The heart is around the town of Republic, Mo. where she is from.
HCM staff writer Liz Stratman recreated these delicious black bean burgers from this recipe she found on Pinterest.
And I made these irresistible no bake peanut butter bars. The secret ingredient (graham cracker crumbs) gave them just the right amount of crunch!
