How to get straight edges on your buttercream cake: The Upside Down Method

marble decor 7

Howdy folks! If you’ve been following me for a while then you  know that I use the upside down method a lot. I mean a lot a lot–pretty much every time my cake is larger than 4 inches in diameter and I don’t plan to turn it into a drip cake. While I’m the first to admit that my icing game isn’t always on point, this method has taken me one step closer to making cakes as beautifully crisp as[Read more]

One Bowl Chocolate Cake!

Hello, friends! I thought it was about time that I post my go-to chocolate cake recipe. In all honesty, you can find this recipe all over the internet in one form or another. I’ve seen it on the Hershey’s website, on allrecipes.com, and a couple of other places with slight variations. As a matter of fact, one of my first blog posts was a review of Add a Pinch’s chocolate “Best Chocolate Cake Ever”, which as it turns out is also this recipe.[Read more]

Happy December! I’m excited to share with you the first of what I hope is 2 or 3 holiday-themed cakes. But first, what do you think of my new header? Less Barbie, I hope.

The next cake I post will most likely be a birthday cake rather than Christmas one, but we’ll have to see. In the meantime, check this out![Read more]

Happy Saturday everyone! Do you have any big weekend plans? It’s 60º here so I’m naturally wearing 3 layers of clothing and still freezing. Don’t hate 😛 Do you ever have something you want to say, but no one to say it to? If you do, feel free to tell me what it is in the comments. I will be your ear! In exchange for that though, you need to read my random thought of the hour: Kylie Jenner, man. Why[Read more]

Autumn Jewel Cake

This week’s cake decorating tutorial is brought to you by the season of Autumn. Oh, and candy. Lots and lots of homemade candy.  I really wanted to make a joke about needing to call a bling hotline (a’la the song Hotline Bling by Drake), but apparently that would mean I’m looking to have a booty call. Who the hell do I call if I just want to talk about my bling addiction? Lame. Prior to beginning you’ll need a candy thermometer[Read more]
