Friday Favs 3/31/17
Some of my favorite new submissions this week:   And they say cake decorating is dead: It’s not dead.   It’s more in the process of being slowly bludgeoned to death. Ergo the massive head injury and general fuglitude happening here.   Now let’s take a rare glimpse at the Cake Wrecks Facebook Wall – be [...]

Blueberry Cookies (gluten-free, whole...

These blueberry cookies have a streusel coating, a nice lemon flavor and are just like a blueberry muffin top! With gluten-free, whole wheat and all-purpose flour options. This is one of my favorite recipes from my book. I tested them with gluten-free flour a while back and figured that not posting the recipe would just be mean. These are a [...]

Oooh, Hard One

Oooh, Hard One
YOU GUYS. I found it: the ultimate litmus test for a pure mind. Here’s how it works: If you can look at the following cake without immediately side-eying the person next to you and/or laughing like a scandalized hyena, you pass. Ready? GO: Oh, and if you see the name “Emma,” you pass, too. If, however, you see a Simpson Sch [...]

Happy Thursday to you! I’m back with another installment of my favorites. It’s been a few months since I posted my last favorites post, and then we had holiday gift guides (has it really been more than three months since Christmas already?!)… I’ve found some great new things in the meantime, so here we are! I separated this list out int [...]

Get Used To (More) Disappointment

Get Used To (More) Disappointment
What’s that? You want more “Missed Marks” wrecks? AS YOU WISH.   First up, Randee C. ordered this simple zebra-stripe cake from her local bakery:   … and ended up with something only a finger-painting preschooler could love: Zebras of unusual stripes?I don’t think they exist. Next, Tahnee [...]

Irish Cream Fudge

Thumbnail for 9571
Irish cream fudge with lots of Baileys flavor. Couldn’t be any easier to make and is naturally gluten-free! Irish cream desserts are my favorite treats for St. Patrick’s Day. Last year I made these Irish cream brownies and wanted to make something equally as chocolaty and boozy this year. By the way, if you haven’t made this [...]

Milky Way Tart

A pâte sucrée crust is filled with homemade caramel sauce and whipped milk chocolate mousse, then topped with a drizzle of caramel and milk chocolate curls. Do you have a favorite candy bar? I have one (Snickers!), but I honestly wouldn’t call myself a candy bar conuisseur. We ate them sparingly growing up, and some I never even tried u [...]

Healthy wraps with peanut butter, apple, cottage cheese and raisins are a great make-ahead lunch perfect for the lunchbox. With a gluten-free option. Thanks to Flatout for making today’s post possible! I haven’t been up to making fancy meals lately. Or really, I rarely make anything fancy and almost always opt for super quick a [...]

The Long And Short Of It

The Long And Short Of It
[WARNING: It’s been far too long since I told you to hide the kids, right? Well, today’s the day, peeps. No kids or bosses beyond this point, unless you enjoy awkward conversations. :D]   You know those commercials where you can’t figure out what they’re trying to sell? Like, okay, there’s a woman playing c [...]

It’s time for cake! My sweet friend Robyn Stone’s first cookbook releases tomorrow and I’m super excited to bake and share something from it with you. I chose her Italian Cream Cake after I saw it featured on QVC’s In the Kitchen with David when she was on the show. This was also her wedding cake, so I knew it had to be delicious. And, [...]

Staying Off Property At Disney World

Thumbnail for 9560
If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember seeing some photos and video of Elle’s 3rd birthday celebration at Disney. Yep, we packed up the family, including my parents and their significant others, boarded a plane, and headed for sunny Orlando. Let me start by saying that we aren’t Disney fanatics and shockingly enough, [...]

Paleo lemon bars with a super creamy, cashew-based vegan and no-bake topping! Full of lemon flavor and maple-sweetened. I’m back! The past three weeks have been really tough and baking was the last thing on my mind. I hope to make up for my lack of posting with these seriously delicious bars.
