Halloween countdown day 3! I've now posted more in the past 3 days than the past year and a half. So, I make a lot of cakes. But before I made cakes, I had never really heard that people didn't like chocolate cake. And when I say "people," I mean humans over the age of … Continue reading Chocolate Cake with Hazelnut Buttercream
A two tier 40th birthday cake with ombre buttercream roses. This is a simple yet pretty way to decorate a cake. Use a large star tip on a crumb coated cake, start from the inside and circle around twice. I love the effect of the ombré too!
This cake was for sweet Claire who turned 1. It was her smash cake and I'm pretty sure the cake was almost as big as her. Covered in lavender buttercream ruffles, the cake was coconut with coconut buttercream. Yum.
I'd like to say that I'd been planning on making these bars for a while, but honestly, we had a bunch of bananas that went super-ripe in about a day's time (what's up with Costco bananas?

I will choose cake over most desserts, but especially over fruit-pastry desserts. :)This Cocoa-Buttermilk Birthday cake is so easy- the … Continue reading TWD- Cocoa-Buttermilk Birthday Cake
Ok, I was pretty excited to make this month's Cake Slice Bakers cake because I am pretty sure I could live on chocolate cake. And who knows, maybe this could be the cake I would chose to live on? I had my doubts, though, because my all-time, #1 favorite cake pretty much takes the cake. … Continue reading CS Bakers- Mile-High Devil’s Food Cake
I made a birthday cake for our friend's daughter as a thank you for letting us use his truck to bring home our new BBQ. The birthday girl's big brother said she likes princesses so I made a Cinderella cake (or as Beansy says, "Cinderbredda)". I made the carriage and Cinderella (inspired by AIMummy) out … Continue reading Cinderella Cake
