Who? Dr. Who.

Let me start my saying that with the exception of a trip to a Dr. Who Experience while I was in England last year I have had no other experience, knowledge or understanding of the whole Dr. Who phenomenon.  My understanding of the whole this is still a little low, however cake I know.  Cake…

Rainbows and Doodles

Hello friends, I hope you are faring well in this sweltering heat wave.  Today’s post is about a birthday cake I prepared for a co-worker’s daughter’s 4th birthday.  She was having a rainbow themed party and we must have both been on the same wavelength because we both knew if I was going to make…

Here Comes the Cake

So the chocolate seashells I posted last week were a big hit. And the cake and surprise bridal shower went off without a hitch. Here is the final cake- three layers of all-butter vanilla pound cake, filled with lemon curd (thanks Trader Joe’s!) and frosted with a salted vanilla buttercream. The decorations? White chocolate molded…

Cake Balls…Finally!

After reading and seeing endless posts from Bakerella, Family Circle, Martha Stewart, et al it was about time I make cake balls too!

Birthday Party Wrapup

As I mentioned a few days ago, I am on my way to 30!  Saturday I had a big, princessy, girl’s night in complete with a Disney Princess pinata and mini-tiaras for everyone. My mom made her amazing Spinach Casserole, Potato Salad and Roast Pork Sandwiches not to mention a bunch of appetizers and dips…

Gobble up this Cake

So I spend a large portion of this weekend prepping for Thanksgiving.  Getting my place cleaned, making menus, making sure there are enough serving pieces, the list is exhaustive.  But, the best part of the holiday, being thankful for having my family with me is more important than turkey, pie, how the sweet potatoes are…
