What is it about baking in someone else's kitchen that makes you feel out of sorts? We're visiting family and we're staying at my parent's. For some reason, I cannot bake very well in my mom's kitchen. Cooking is ok, just not baking. Things turn out like this and this. So sad.I wasn't sure how … Continue reading TWD- Cherry Nectarine Pie
I meant to make this recipe for Semolina bread last night. About 7pm, I read the recipe. Three rises of two hours. Not a feat I was willing to start at 7pm. So I started this morning. By dinner time, we had a nice loaf of bread. That was too hot to eat.The recipe starts … Continue reading TWD- Semolina Bread
I made this cake a couple months ago, but I didn't get any pictures of it except for this one from Instagram. It was for 2 sisters who had the exact same birthday, two years apart. It was made to match the same Hello Kitty party decor as this and this.

Now, three years later, she asked me to make little Hanna's birthday cake. I can't believe how quickly time goes by! Hanna wanted a Cinderella … Continue reading Cinderella Cake

She wanted something similar to this cake, and this is what I came up with. She liked the animals and colors, so I stuck with that. I know Noah's ark … Continue reading Noah’s Ark cake
Someone contacted me on Facebook to order a cake like the Cars 2 cake I made last year. She wanted it for her little boy, who turned 1. This one was to be bigger, so it's three tiers. The cars are made out of rice krispie treats and covered and decorated in fondant.
First My Little Pony cake I've made- what happened in the past year that MLP has completely changed? They're all sleek and less cutesy. Anyway, Liv and Sadie are sisters almost exactly two years apart and they love MLP from Netflix. 🙂 Rainbow Dash is their fave.The inside was rainbow vanilla with vanilla buttercream.
This fire engine cake was for Drake, who had a Cars 2 cake last year. I tried airbrushing the red, which was fun and worked fine. Until I cleaned up. Red. Everywhere. Even upstairs on the bathroom counter (must have gone through the vents). Crazy!Cake was chocolate with chocolate filling.
This week's TWD is for Hazelnut Biscotti. Biscotti is Italian for "baked twice," and are crispy cookies (my husband, who speaks Italian, will remind me that "biscotti" is plural and "biscotto" is singular) that are usually eaten for breakfast with some kind of coffee drink. In Italy, they're yummy, probably because you're in Italy. But … Continue reading TWD- Chocolate Almond Cinnamon Biscotti
