With Apologies To All The Anns Out There
Bakers, I know this is a toughie. Heck, after gathering all of today’s photos even *I* can’t remember how to spell it. But that’s why I’m here. To “help.” And because going anywhere else requires pants. Right. Here we go. Metaphorically, I mean. Just wipe that “pants” imagery from your mind. Al [...]

Hello and happy Saturday to you! I hope you had a fantastic week and that your weekend is off to a wonderful start. Nothing big planned for our weekend; I have a little baking I’d like to do, and am planning to pick back up with my purging in the kitchen. I’ve been going a drawer or cabinet at a time when I have a few extra minute [...]

Friday Favs 4/21/17
PARENTAL NOTE: Best keep the little ones away today. I think this is mostly safe for work, though. Mostly. [evil grin]   Some of my favorite new submissions this week: I’m sensing there’s a story here: Just me?   And I kinda love how this bakery advertises that they’re 50 years old – so mature! so establis [...]

Not That Long Ago, In A Bakery Far From Okay…
In case you missed it, Jen and John just built something insane, which they ROCKED at Star Wars Celebration last weekend. I feel like a Star Wars theme is appropriate.   Quick, Luke, use the 4rth! (It was then Obi Wan realized getting braces was a bad idea.)   “It’s as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, [...]

The Basket Case

The Basket Case
Ahh, those pesky unsold Easter cakes. I feel your pain, bakers. Or rather, I *see* it: And that IS quite the pickle. But never fear. I AM HERE TO HELP. Listen, like everything in life, this problem can be easily solved by a little thing called re-branding. So. What do you see here? An evil lamb cake? Or is it an evil CLOWN cake? Hmmm? Righ [...]

Thumbnail for 9649
This Boston Cream Pie recipe features a simple vanilla cake filled with homemade pastry cream and topped with a chocolate ganache.

Dental Training
Hi, I’m here to pick up a cake? It’s the “Happy Birthday Brittany” one. Ah, no, see, that second “Birthday” should be “Brittany.”    No no, this has Brittany twice. I need “Happy Birthday” on it. Ok, now you’ve just combined them into one word. There shou [...]

Salted Dark Chocolate Granola

Thumbnail for 9644
Salted Dark Chocolate Granola is a deliciously crunchy ice cream topping, a rich addition to your morning yogurt, or just a good chocolate snack for your afternoon pick-me-up. I really love granola but until recently I only thought of it as breakfast food. I might occasionally pull out my Chunky Tropical Granola recipe for a snack, but more [...]

These Bakers REALLY Hate Drawing

These Bakers REALLY Hate Drawing
Tracee asked her baker to write “Good Luck at Regionals” and then add a volleyball. Which, technically, is exactly what the baker did: ::facepalm:: (Anyone else wonder what would have happened if they’d had an actual volleyball in the bakery? Because these are the mental images that bring me joy.)   Jordan just wanted [...]
