More Halloween Madness

I think the sugar-high is really starting to kick in, you guys. You can almost hear the insane giggling from behind the counter, am I right?   John thinks these are supposed to be maggots: I think it’s time to scroll down quickly and skip lunch.   Then there’s this:   And this: I’ve stared at that cookie f [...]

Since today is the day for ghosts and ghouls and goblins, I thought it was only fitting to showcase a wedding cake topper with a Halloween vibe. And so, I give you the ‘Bun-Bun Skeleton Wedding Cake Topper.’ Yes, the name is really Bun-Bun Skeleton. And people will actually use these as their cake topper! I haven’t decided y [...]

Bakeries get a lot of leeway this time of year, since Halloween is supposed to have ugly gross stuff:   But there’s raspberry jam soaked zombie faces, and then there’s… uh… this: Took me a solid minute to figure it out: A banana shooting laser beams. (I am SO GOOD AT THIS, you guys.)   Yep, bakers are once [...]

These soft and chewy spiced apple oatmeal cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free and 100% whole grain. I’m super excited about today’s post!

Food Photography Tips + Adobe Photosh...

Thumbnail for 3045
Looking back to when I first began blogging in 2007, it’s clear that I knew virtually nothing about taking pictures of food. My process back then went something like this: Make something, put it on a plate or in a bowl, put it on the counter or table, snapped a picture and eat. At some point in the future, upload it and post it online. [...]

I love that the orange glow of this cake is more of a golden orange hue, rather than a pumpkin orange. Because really, a bright orange cake might scare your guests. And instead of orange-and-black [...]

DIY: Homemade Peppermint Patties

Thumbnail for 3035
Halloween is just a couple of days away, but you won’t find any spooky decorations at my house. I’m pretty much the scrooge of Halloween… I think I stopped trick or treating before I was out of grade school, and only dressed up once (in college, and it was a tie-dye t-shirt – I made myself a hippie) since then… I [...]
