Life Should Be Cake

Lip Service

Lip Service
Allison ordered a cake for her boss Lisa’s 50th birthday. To make it a little more fun, she asked the bakery to shape the cake like a big pair of lips. … … Uh… … [side eye] … …guys? 0.o   Thanks to Allison W. for all the mandatory sexual harassment classes her office has to take now. But on the [...]

Slow Cooker Korean Short Ribs

Thumbnail for 6450
These slow cooker Korean short ribs are incredibly easy and packed with tons of flavor; the meat is tender and falls right off the bone! When I asked my husband recently if he was hungry for anything in particular for Sunday dinner, he requested macaroni and cheese, which… yum. I thought about what I could make to go along with the mac [...]

Oreo Cookie Rolls

Thumbnail for 6448
I made some pretty sweet buns to nibble on. They’re made just like cinnamon rolls but without the cinnamon swirled inside. That’s because these are stuffed with Double Stuf Oreo cookies instead. The rolled dough is covered in melted butter, cocoa, granulated sugar, brown sugar and crumbled Oreo cookies. Spread everything out evenly so you [...]

These 9 Bakery Windows Are All The Wa...

These 9 Bakery Windows Are All The Warning You'll Ever Need
I’m always amazed by the amount of cake wrecks in shop windows. It’s almost as if the bakers themselves are trying to warn us off, in an “abandon hope, all ye who enter here” kind of way. That or they’re operating a secret meth lab in back, and don’t want customers wandering in. Either way, can’t say [...]

Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercr...

These mocha cupcakes are coffee and espresso-infused, with a subtle chocolate flavor, and topped with an espresso-spiked buttercream frosting. These mocha cupcakes are a chocolate and coffee lover’s dream come true. If you can’t get your day going without your favorite cup of coffee, you’re in luck. I might even go so far a [...]

It's A Sweet Day For A Winter Wedding
Hey, if you can’t beat the cold, celebrate it!(Says the girl in Florida. :D)   Besides, sparkly ice and swirling snowflakes are PERFECT for a fairy tale wedding: See? The frosted branches and glittery “snow” on each tier is so pretty and delicate!   This one has the tiniest touches of gold to warm up the gray: An [...]

The Weekend Dish: 1/23/2016

Thumbnail for 6440
Happy Saturday to you! Are in the path of the big snowstorm that’s hitting this weekend? We’re on the northern edge of the storm, so we’re not supposed to get too much, maybe a few inches. If you’re getting, I hope that you’re staying safe and warm, and enjoying some cozy snow storm activities like hot chocolate, [...]

This King Cake has a pecan praline and cream cheese filling and is topped off with praline frosting! The brioche dough is light, buttery and incredibly moist. With a 100% whole grain option. Did you know that King Cake isn’t just a Louisiana / Mardi Gras thing? They have King Cakes in France, Spain, Portugal, Latin American countries an [...]

Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake

Thumbnail for 6436
Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake may be the easiest cheesecake you’ll ever make. It’s the perfect size for a small family celebration too! I am typically not one to jump on board with trends- especially food related trends. But when I stumbled across a Facebook page full of home cooks raving about the Instant Pot Programmable Pressur [...]

Friday Favs 1/22/16
A few of my favorite new submissions this week:   An oceanography institute held a dessert contest for their employees, but someone apparently decided to cheat a bit, aaaand: ….hilarity ensued. I like how this person immediately threw the store under the bus. Better for people to know you cheated than think you drew THAT, am I ri [...]

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie is so decadent that’s it’s almost like having dessert for breakfast – did I mention it’s healthy and gluten-free, too?!

National Cowboy Poetry Week, 2016

National Cowboy Poetry Week, 2016
Not gonna lie, minions: Cowboy Poetry Week is one of my favorite weeks of the year here on Cake Wrecks. Because you just never know how much fun writing cowboy poems is ’til you try… and fail spectacularly. EMBRACE THE BAD, MY FRIENDS.   My horse done went and joined Yoga She loves it and won’t ever quit! My horse don [...]

Chicken Salad with Apple, Raisins &am...

Thumbnail for 6424
An easy chicken salad recipe loaded with diced apples, raisins and chopped walnuts. Perfect for lunch on its own, atop a bed of lettuce or in a croissant. This chicken salad has been another staple in our refrigerator over the last few weeks, as we continue with the Whole30 during January. Although this complies with the eating plan, it’ [...]

Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes

Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes are loaded with orange flavor and are topped with cream cheese frosting. With a gluten-free option. As a Texan currently living in gray and dreary Germany, I miss the sun.
