A Spirited Similarity

Ever wonder what it’d look like if famous characters came back as wrecky ghost cakes? Yeah, me neither. But I guess these bakers did!   A ghost called Jayne: “All this booing is damaging my calm.”   Spy VS Spy: [mimes dropping a giant bomb on both]   Aquaman: Sounds fishy.   Pac-Man: A Pac-Man gh [...]

These amazing cupcakes deserved an upgrade!] I first made pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting nearly five years ago, and I have been loving that flavor combination ever since.

Some of my favorite submissions this week:   October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so it’s nice to see bakers doing their part: …to make pink ribbons look like ding-a-lings.   You know how they say the most important thing is to just never stop trying?

I came across these grain-free thick and chewy snickerdoodles from A Clean Bake last week and knew that I had to make them!
