One Bowl Mexican Chocolate Cake

I have a friend who has been telling me to make a Mexican chocolate cake forever. People don’t take their friends’ advice often enough, wouldn’t you agree? I sat on this one for quite a while, mainly because I already have a recipe for a cinnamon-infused chocolate mud cake in my recipe box. But let’s get real here—it’s not really the same. Mud cakes are wonderfully dense like brownies, while this one is light, fluffy, and remarkably similar in texture to Add a Pinch’s Best[Read more]

Camouflage Pink and Green Buttercream Cake

Hello lovelies! I was browsing Youtube last Tuesday when I stumbled across someone’s video for one of the prettiest cakes I’d ever seen in my life. I totally planned to steal it use it as inspiration for this week’s cake, but I needed to order a special tool off of Amazon first and their two-day shipping wasn’t so two-day after all. Blah! So, after that plan fell through I basically had to scramble to come up with a new design idea. And[Read more]

Fluffy Pumpkin Sheet Cake

Fine. It’s fall. I accept it. Don’t get me wrong, I *love* fall, it’s just that here in TX the temperatures are still scorching and the mosquitoes are still attacking. If it weren’t for football and I’d still be in denial!  The good thing about autumn is that I happen to have a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook from 1981 that has tons of fall recipes! My grandmother sent it to me years ago, bless her heart. I think my my[Read more]

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Hello, lovelies! Hopefully you caught last week’s Almond and Amaretto Cookie Fudge recipe. If so, then you already know I’m on an amaretto kick. I had some of those delicious little cookies left over, so I figured what better way to use them then to do a Tiramisu inspired layer cake. 🙂 I know that most of my cake entries focus on decorating alone, but for this one I think the flavors are the true star of the show (Plus my[Read more]

A Coolio Striped Flower Cake

Hello lovelies. This week I bring to you a cake that I have named the Coolio. Why? Because after I finished it, the first words to come out of my mouth were “Ooh La La!” And everyone who was around in 1997 knows that was the jam. If it’s not obvious by the design, I’m still in my stripe period. I can’t help it! They are so easy to do and always come out looking so fresh and so clean clean. [Read more]

New Baker Hacks: Cake Decorating Essentials

Hello lovelies, it’s been a while! If it isn’t obvious, I’ve been working really hard trying to make this site more functional and visibly pleasing. There is a new header, for one (Does it suck? Let me know why!) and I’ve also added a widget to allow commenting straight from Facebook! I don’t know if I’m going to keep it though. I’ve since read that I won’t be notified if someone comments that way, and given how little people comment[Read more]
