Cupcakes

Every time I make cupcakes, my brother’s girlfriend tells me she wants one. The only thing is, she lives 1000 miles away! So I decided to make a special batch just for her and I include them in the Christmas package I sent home. (Last week… yes I am a huge slacker! At least it’s…

{Recipe} Smores Bark

We have had an unusually high amount of chocolate around here lately, with the holidays and all. After we made peppermint bark last week I was in a chocolate melting mood, and we had some mini marshmallows leftover from Juniper’s birthday party so I thought I’d make some smores bark! Seemed like a good idea.…

Colorful Cookies

I’ve been a little preoccupied lately putting together a little birthday celebration for my Juniper. (I still can’t believe she is going to be 3 tomorrow, and I’m sure I will express similar feelings every year until I die.) Today we baked some super colorful cookies. (I got the idea from this post on Tablespoon.)…

Mini Cake Challenge – November

I’ve been wanting to try this technique forever. I’m glad I finally decided to go for it, because it sure makes for a super cute little cake! Now, usually I am a strong believer that every single thing on a cake should be edible, but I just couldn’t resist adding a little cake bunting. (Darn…

Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream

Kaylah from The Dainty Squid just posted a super yummy recipe for Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream! With a name like that, who could resist trying it out? And I had all of the ingredients already, so that was a plus. This ice cream is super easy to make, and oh so…

Orange Juice and Honey Roasted Peanuts

Once upon a time there was a young couple who was very much in love. One day, after getting out of work early because it was the 4th of July, they went to the boy’s house to decide what they wanted to do for the evening. Upon arrival, the young man noticed a package sitting…

Mini Cake Challenge – June

So it was Thursday night, I was trying to decide what to make for dinner, and all of a sudden I realized it was the last day of the month and I hadn’t baked any cakes! Now of course I couldn’t have that, so I postponed dinner for a bit and got to it. I…

MORE Cakes!

I have been baking up a storm this month! First, I made this mini-cake for Mother’s Day. Then this week I baked an awesome rainbow cake for a fundraiser cake auction and a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse birthday cake for a friend. The rainbow cake was fun! Here it is at the cake auction with the…
