Hello Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start! We had some crazy snow yesterday, but it looks like it’s going to be warm(er) weather from here on out. Thank goodness! I’m spending the weekend writing tax checks (UGH), doing some cooking and baking (YAY), and snuggling up with my boys (double YAY). What are you up [...]

Friday Favs 4/7/17
We’ve got a triple-hitter today, minions: not only is it No Housework Day (woo!), it’s also National Beer Day (hoo!) AND International Beaver Day!! [crickets] No? OK, but that still means we can get sloshed on thrones of dirty laundry, right? Beavers optional*. (*Beavers Optional is the name of my Damn Yankees cover band.) Also, [...]

These cheesecake cookie cups have a sugar cookie crust and a delicious white chocolate cream cheese filling. Can be made with gluten-free, whole wheat or all-purpose flour. Here’s something fun for Easter! Like I’ve said in pretty much every recipe of mine that contains a crust, I’m all about cookie crusts. If it’s not [...]


Sometimes bakers like to stretch themselves by making unusual object cakes. You know, stuff you don’t usually see made into cake. Everyday things. Mundane things. Stupid things. Like this tiny broom.   And bikini bottoms: JUST the bikini bottoms. (Part of me wants to believe this is a Spongebob cake gone wrong.)   And this&# [...]

BEB Bucket List 2.0

Thumbnail for 9601
A few weeks ago, I mentioned my old baking and cooking bucket list, which I had dubbed “My 100“. I posted it back in 2008 (NINE years ago, whoa!) as a way to inspire me to tackle new things and track my progress. Since then nearly everything on the list has been crossed off (yay!) and I’ve been wanting to update and expand t [...]

The Letter Of The Flaw

The Letter Of The Flaw
This redditor discovered there’s more than one way to interpret “sprinkles on the side.” Ha! (One of the few times when the wrecked version actually required more effort.)   Dae’s local bakery offers number-shaped donuts for birthdays, so she ordered “20 number 6 donuts with pink icing and sprinkles.̶ [...]

Characteristically Sweet

Here’s a fun round up of a bunch of character cake pops I’ve made. These are some of my favorite kind of pops to make because they’re the most challenging. I get excited when I can find just the right tiny candies and sprinkles to portray a character. Sixlets, jelly beans, sunflower seeds, M&M’s, confetti sprinkles [...]

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Nestlé SweeTARTS. The opinions and text are all mine. Bunny Bait is candy-coated popcorn, cereal, and pretzel sticks mixed with plenty of sprinkles and Easter candy. Great for treat bags, Easter baskets, movie night, or general snacking!

Sunday Sweets Gets Suspended!

Sunday Sweets Gets Suspended!
But not like that. Like this! Yes, today is all about cakes enchanted by Molly Weasley, because CLEARLY there is magic at work here. Beautiful, delicious magic.   FACT: Everything is more adorable round. Even elephants. They remind me of the Rollin’ Safari videos. (Which I just had to go watch again.) Cracks me up every. single.

Happy April! If I had a keen, witty sense of humor I would have thought of a great April fool’s joke for you, but alas… that kind of thing is not my strong suit, womp womp. Can you believe it’s APRIL already? And that my baby is going to be six months old on Tuesday?! How on Earth does time move so fast (and yet, the hour be [...]

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 [...]
