Chocolate Cinnamon Crinkle Cookies

We’re almost there. Can you believe it? I’m feeling a bit like the violinist on the Titanic right now since I’m still baking baking baking while I’m sure everyone else has moved on and started panicking about other things.  But what is Christmas without your classic crinkle cookie? They are a must! And I refuse to piss off Santa Claus by not including them on this blog. They’re fast, easy, beautiful, and ridiculously tasty.    I love a classic chocolate cookie,[Read more]

Well. I said it might happen. The last time we talked I mentioned creating a showstopper for my neighborhood Christmas party. And as predicted, I jinxed myself. 😛 This was one of those cases where a couple of small things went wrong but it was enough to ruin my whole project. It sucks too, because I really went out of my way to try and make this as easy on myself as possible. But….mistakes happened, my timeline went all whack, nothing[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. Then again, if you’re as perceptive as me then you probably already forgot what the last header looked like. 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]
