This week I’ve been wrapping and shipping out Christmas gifts like a mad women and have been trying to plan out the last details for our Elf on the Shelf. My stepson also notified me that chocolate chip cookies are the ONLY acceptable option to bake for Santa Claus (since they’re his favorite), so I’m on the hunt for the perfect recipe. If you’re still in the mood for some holiday baking, this gingerbread bundt cake recipe should definitely be added to your list. It tastes like how I imagine the holiday season would, if the holiday season had a taste. It’s got all of those warm and spicy notes and the glaze is sooooo good too.
I’m officially kitchen-less and it feels so weird! I’m living in that limbo moment of time where I’m still in Salt Lake City, minus a house, and not quite to Charlotte, in a rental. All of my normal cake supplies and baking tools are packed in boxes, sitting in a storage unit, and I’m completely relying on my sister’s house for anything I might have forgotten that I needed during this month. So when it came time to make this peaches and cream cake, I knew I could count on my friend Natalie (and her kitchen tools!) to help me pull it all together. (She’s the person I started this girl’s night with too!) It was also a really good excuse to get together to make one more cake before I head east!
As much as I love to go out on the town, there’s just something amazing about spending a night in. As I get older, I’m really embracing doing fun things at home with my girlfriends, instead of going out. Today, I’m sharing my very favorite girl’s night in idea…and it involves wine AND cake. What’s not to love about that? [Read more…]
I almost didn’t post this cake. It has flaws and wasn’t up to par with my perfectionist self, then I thought…but it tastes good! It might not look pinterest perfect, but this chocolate stout beer cake with beer frosting still deserves it’s moment. And sometimes, it’s ok to post a project with flaws. I know when I see someone else do it, it makes me feel a little more adequate. I’m not a professional cake maker, and don’t claim to be. But I love making cakes (and eating them!), and this cake is just one more notch in my cake baking experience column.
It snowed in Utah today. Snow. Apparently Spring decided to stay on vacation this year, because she doesn’t seem to be showing up anytime soon. So, until warmer weather decides to come my way, I’ll just have to force a little bit of ambiance inside. This adorable printable cactus cake topper has me dreaming of warmer Arizona days. I was there last month for Spring Training with a friend, and we went on a cactus quest. My love for cacti runs deep and Arizona doesn’t disappoint in the cactus department.
Some people just don’t like cake. I don’t understand you people, but nevertheless, you exist. And because of that, I’m creating an anti-cake cake to help you guys out. (It’s still kind of a cake. Sue me). This pumpkin waffle cake is really easy to make and put together, has a wow factor, and it’s made with waffles! What’s not to love?! (Does that mean we can consider this a breakfast recipe?)
There is only about a week left before Halloween and that means a weekend packed full of Halloween activities and events. If you’re avoiding those Halloween parties because you have to bring a treat, don’t. I’m sharing another grocery store cake hack with you guys and this one is a BREEZE, and the easiest cake hack to date. This Halloween bat cake takes no time to put together and it’s just waiting to be placed on a party table!

No matter how old I get, I’ve realized that I’m still a kid at heart and LOVE cereal. (I eat it for dinner more than I should probably admit). But, as we get older, there are some other fun ways to enjoy cereal, besides just in a cereal bowl for breakfast (or dinner!). This milk and cereal cake recipe is a great way to transform a breakfast staple into something fun for a birthday, special occasion, or just a way to get your kids to giggle when they find out you’ve put cereal into their cake.
