Pink Ombre Cake

March 19, 2015

I wasn’t planning on writing a blog post on this cake so I wish I had more pictures, but I think you can get the idea with the few pictures I did take. I made this pretty pink cake for a sweet little 2-year old named Paige. I don’t think Paige had any opinions on [...]

Not tired of pumpkins desserts yet? Neither am I. I have more pumpkin-y treats on my “to make” list than humanly possible to make and eat in a season. That won’t stop me from trying to get down the list, though. With a little fresh pumpkin puree at my disposal, I decided to tackle a [...]

That Chocolate Cake

September 27, 2012

The first time I made Andrew a birthday cake, I was up until 3 in the morning baking it. I was in college, too busy studying and interning to be fussing with a cake from scratch, but I was determined to bake him one and so I did. The next day, we celebrated his birthday [...]

Baking fussy cakes is not my thing. I probably bake a multi-layered cake one to two times a year (every year for Andrew’s birthday and perhaps another occasion). I am a big fan of single layer cakes, though. They are more relaxed, don’t require an occasion, and somehow always meet your expectations. For some reason [...]

Vegan Chocolate Cake

June 22, 2012

Even though I’m calling this “Vegan Chocolate Cake,” it should really be called “Chocolate Cake (That’s Surprisingly Vegan).” When it comes to vegan baking, I find it best to withhold the “vegan” part from Andrew until he has had time to taste and praise it. He loved the cake and after I told him that [...]

I was looking at Easter stuff in Target the other day and ended up coming home with this mini Bundt pan. It was one of those good impulse purchases (the kind you instantly feel good about, not the kind you end up regretting). I love it because anything you bake in it comes out looking [...]

Vanilla Bean Pound Cake

February 21, 2012

Let me introduce you to the first fully baked pound cake that I have ever made! The first two times I made pound cake, I under-baked them. Don’t ask me how that happened, but now I will only use a knife (not a toothpick) to test if a pound cake is done. Third time’s a [...]

Warm Soft Chocolate Cake

January 26, 2012

This is the best kind of cake in my book–a “no fuss” kind of cake. The ingredients are minimal, it bakes in about 10 minutes, and you scoop it out with a spoon (no knife required). And lucky for me, warm chocolate cakes go over especially well with my husband. He’s the type of guy [...]

Yogurt Coffee Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze

December 11, 2011

It’s been a great weekend. With Michael Buble’s Christmas album and a stash of peppermint bark fueling us for the last two days, Andrew and I managed to knock out almost all of our Christmas shopping. I’m feeling pretty good about everything we got and am even more excited for Christmas to get here now [...]
