Sunday Sweets GOES SHOPPING!!

Thumbnail for 3346
With everyone in a shopping frenzy this weekend, I figured hey, why not make it a FEEDING frenzy… of shopping! Only, you know, in cake. (This, uh, sounded a lot better in my head.) So, let’s say you’re shopping for a sweet Vera Bradley purse: BAM! That’s totally cake! So you’ll have to keep looking. But still. [...]

The Weekend Dish: 11/29/2014

Happy (long) weekend to you! How was your Thanksgiving holiday? We had an awesome day here with both of our families and enjoyed lots of laughs and great food. Between prepping on Wednesday and the holiday, this 8-month pregnant lady was totally tuckered out yesterday. As a result, I spent Black Friday firmly planted on the couch and enjoyed [...]

Oh, It's Definitely Unique

Thumbnail for 3342
Lianne spotted a new cake shop opening up nearby, and, well…. I’m guessing the owners don’t believe in sounding it out. But on the bright side, I bet they never get testy!   Thanks to Lianne R. for helping us end the week on a high note. (Get it? “A high note?” HEYOOO!) ***** Thank you for using our Amaz [...]

I give you Bride and Groom OREO Cookie Balls. Are they not super cute? And since they’re made out of OREO cookies they are bound to be delicious too! Now I’m sure you thinking “what bride has time to make her own favors?” Well, none probably. But brides have a gaggle of bridesmaids and aunts and maybe even uncles who l [...]

It’s Thanksgiving here in America, my friends, but ALL of us could stand to be more thankful for the little things in life. Like turkeys giving birth to pilgrim hats:   And old Halloween flotsam:   For floating scarecrow heads:   Desperate store managers trying to get rid of old stock:   And spurting turkey canno [...]

Oh Stuff It

Thumbnail for 3330
Unfortunately for us all, turkey cakes are a thing. I guess I can live with this, but why – WHY – do bakers have to add the stuffing? “Ahh, the ol’ ‘Fido’s head exploded’ design. Nice!   But can we add a few blood stains?” “PERFECT.”   “Now how about some moldy gr [...]

Pancake Wedding Cake

Thumbnail for 3328
That headline really says “pancake wedding cake.” When I saw this “wedding cake” as I was searching for something fun and whimsical I knew it just had to be shared. We’ve seen a lot of unconventional wedding cakes around here – OREO cookie cakes, chocolate chip cookie cakes, doughnut cakes, and even cakes m [...]

Italian Walnut Pillow Cookies

[These cookies were originally posted wayyyyy back in February 2009. I wanted to revive them from the archives because they deserved some new and improved pictures, and, most importantly, because these were always a Thanksgiving tradition in our family.] I rarely associate Thanksgiving dessert with anything other than things like pie (pumpki [...]

These mini caramel pecan tarts have a grain-free and gluten-free crust and an easy no-bake caramel pecan filling! Today over on My Baking Addiction, I’m sharing these gluten-free mini caramel pecan tarts. I spent over a week trying to get this recipe down. Grain-free crusts are a pain!

Cranberry-Eggnog Cheesecake

Thumbnail for 3314
I have been wanting to make a cranberry cheesecake for Thanksgiving for a few years now, but recently found this version that not only includes cranberries, but eggnog as well. I absolutely loved the idea, as the flavors are the perfect bridge between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Cranberries tend to only be associated with Thanksg [...]
