Wedding Wrecks

Wedding Wrecks
Pay very close attention to these cake pairs, now; I wouldn’t want you to get the Wreck mixed up with the Inspiration Cake. [eye roll] First up:   Elodie M. asked her baker to do this, only with far fewer rose petals. The baker obliged by providing this: Ah, nothing symbolizes the beginning of a new life with the one you love qui [...]

Ice Cream Cone Kitty Cookies

Thumbnail for 10031
I’m super in love with these ice cream turned kitty cat cone sugar cookies. They are all kinds of adorable and pretty easy to decorate. I used this ice cream cone cookie cutter from Sweet Sugarbelle’s line of awesome cookie decorating products. I love that the lines of the cone are more rounded than straight. When I was deciding what ki [...]

Levain Chocolate Chip Cookies

This copycat recipe for Levain Chocolate Chip Cookies turns out enormous thick and chewy cookies, loaded with chocolate chips and walnuts, just like the cookies you’ll find at the famous Levain Bakery. The first time I heard about the Levain Bakery cookies was on an episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay eons ago… I bet it was at le [...]

This peanut butter fudge calls for just 4 ingredients and only takes a few minutes to make. It’s naturally vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free (with a paleo option) but can also be made with butter for a dairy version. It’s sweetened with maple syrup, which gives it a slightly caramel-like texture! With a video. I origi [...]

This is sure to be a big hit with anyone who loves loads of flavor and that all-important bread crumb topping! A number of years ago, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board would host a ma [...]

But Where are the Blue Birds?

But Where are the Blue Birds?
So Dawn W. was throwing a Wizard of Oz cast party, and she knew better than to order anything as complicated as a Yellow Brick Road cake. So instead, she simply asked for a cake with “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on it. Now, if you’ve read this blog for any time at all, then you’re probably expecting the same thing I wa [...]

Mix up some yummy chocolate chip cookie dough and add pastel confetti sprinkles along with milk chocolate or semi sweet chocolate morsels.

The Name Blame

The Name Blame
I know bakers see a lot of unusual names these days, but sometimes you’ve still got to wonder:     …are they doing “the drugs?”    (That’s me channeling a little bit of my mom for you, right there. She puts a “the” in front of everything, like going to “the Walmart [...]
