Chocolate Strawberry Fudge Cake

I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but the truth is that I stole it from Betty. Betty Crocker. I don’t even know how it happened—one minute I was Googling light summer dinner recipes, then the next minute I was at the grocery store loading up my cart with chocolate, heavy cream, and strawberries. Crazy how that happens. 😉 But if you’re looking for one more indulgent treat before the official start to summer (or perhaps something to take[Read more]

A Whimsical Birthday Cake

Goooood morning everyone! Today I have for you a cake that I actually made last month but kept all to myself until now. Greedy, I know. 😈 In all seriousness, I actually made this cake for my neighbor’s mother’s birthday, and since I was in Austin that weekend I didn’t even get to taste it! I heard it was a hit though. As a matter of fact, I was told it was the best cake I ever made. 😋  (Don’t[Read more]

Gold and Copper Splatter Cake!

Hi friends! Did everyone have a fantastic weekend? Had a bit of a busy one here—Saturday was the playoff game between the Texans and the Patriots so we had a lot of people over, then yesterday was my birthday so we figured it’s probably time to take the Christmas tree down. It was definitely on its last leg. Besides that, I only did a bit of baking this week. My neighbor’s birthday is a few days before mine and he[Read more]

Circus Inspired Multicolored Drip Cake

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]

Cake Decorating: Minis!

I feel like it’s been forever since I posted my  white almond wedding cake recipe, but I’m finally here to show you what I ended up doing with the eight mini cakes that I made. Well, what I did with six of them. I had to eat one to make sure I was happy with the recipe before sharing it (I was), but then I had an odd number of cakes so I had no choice but to eat another one[Read more]

When I Drip, You Drip, We Drip

My neighbor’s fantastically generous mother picked this cake stand up for me during a shopping expedition, and I’m totally in love! Teal is way up there on my list of favorite colors, and so bright and beautiful that I just know you’ll be seeing a lot more cakes decorated specifically for this stand. So a very special thanks to her since I know she reads this blog. Muah! It’s important to note, however, that I do have a very dark past[Read more]
