Good Luck Wrecking The Castle!

Joanna H. ordered this cake for her 30th birthday: The horse shoe is for luck. BECAUSE SHE’S GONNA NEED IT, AMIRITE? Ahem.   Here’s what Joanna got instead: Insert “the trots” joke here. BAHAA TOILET HUMOR.   Whitney M. wanted a cake that looked like Neuschwanstein castle for her husband’s 30th birthd [...]

S’mores Cookies

Thumbnail for 4997
We’re still in the thick of summer (hello disgusting heat and humidity wave!), which means there is still plenty of time for s’mores to be eaten. I love a good ol’ big marshmallow charred over a fire and sandwiched between graham crackers with chocolate in the middle. However, I’m also not picky, and I’m just as [...]

If you’re not one of the people complaining about the heat right now, then you’re one of the people complaining about the people complaining about the heat. Either way, we all have the same problem: Bad bikini cakes.   Yep, this heat wave has clearly addled bakers’ brains, my friends, and the results simply aren’ [...]

Garlic-Herb & Parmesan Roasted Re...

One of the cornerstones of Sunday dinners at my grandma’s house were her famous roasted potatoes. Famous to us, and anyone else who had the opportunity to taste them, of course. Everyone clamored for them, my uncle would hoard the bowl, and it would never fail that after my grandma pulled a baking sheet out of the oven full of potatoes [...]

Peanut Butter Cup Eclair Cake is so easy, and NO-BAKE! Layers and layers of chocolate, peanut butter and cream will make this dessert a summer favorite for years to come. I do love an eclair cake.

Peanut Butter Layer Cake with Chocola...

Thumbnail for 4979
For as much as I love peanut butter, it’s pretty surprising that I’ve never attempted a peanut butter cake before now. I think I’ve tried to put peanut butter into just about every other baked good that I can think of, but it never occurred to me to make a peanut butter cake, doh! Last weekend, my husband took a bite of one [...]

Warning: A supposedly naughty cake ahead. (But good luck seeing it.)   “We asked for Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc.“     “This was our Hello Kitty cake:”     “They told us those were flames.”     “Believe it or not, it’s supposed to be a penis.” [...]

I promised that I would give you rundown of my experience with the Whole30 program… I’m 10 days out and finally put down my thoughts on how it all went. The Whole30 has been on my radar for well over a year now, as my sister had previously done a couple, and last spring, my mom did one with her. My mom felt so great after having d [...]

So today I thought we’d celebrate all things South West, Native American, and totally awesome: This cake is singing my song, you guys. My favorite colors AND jewelry and [...]
