Rainbow Mousse Cake | From SugarHero.com

Happy blog birthday to ME! This month marks 3 years of SugarHero-ing it up with you guys, making ridiculously tall cakes, using unhealthy amounts of butter, singlehandedly supporting the chocolate industry, and putting luster dust and gold leaf on absolutely anything and everything, darlings. It has been a blast and it just keeps getting better….

Pumpkin Bundt Cakes

Pumpkin Bundt Cakes | From SugarHero.com

You know what I have zero interest in cooking? A pumpkin. Like a real, actual, grew-from-the-ground pumpkin. You can revoke my foodie card if you want, but I just can’t get excited about adding extra steps to my fall baking, what with the cutting and the roasting and the blending involved in making pumpkin puree…

Spiderweb Naked Red Velvet Cake

Spiderweb Naked Red Velvet Cake | From SugarHero.com

Are you hip to naked cakes? Whoa there–I’m not talking about the bachelor/ette party cakes that are anatomically correct to an uncomfortable degree. I still don’t think I’m old enough to view those. No, I’m talking about the latest cake trend of leaving the outside of layer cakes unfinished, so that the layers of cake…

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but glittering black sugar sprinkles and sparkling orange hard candies are a girl’s best friend… That’s right, friends, it’s not all panna cotta skull graveyards and moldy tarts around here—we can do glamorous Halloween food, too!

You’ve probably had doughnuts and coffee before, but I’ll bet you’ve never had them quite like this! This towering beauty is made from layers of homemade sour cream doughnuts and a light, fluffy mocha whipped cream. Add a topping of shiny chocolate-coffee ganache and a few more doughnuts, and you have a gorgeously unique layer…

Spumoni Cake

Spumoni Cake | From SugarHero.com

You could not have PAID me enough money to eat spumoni ice cream as a child. Okay, that’s probably a lie. I was perpetually broke and hustlin’ like only a third grader who reeeaaally wants a new Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers can hustle. I most definitely would have eaten spumoni ice cream for money. But…

Charlotte Royale (Swiss Roll Cake) | From SugarHero.com

Thank you to McCormick for sponsoring this post! Gather round, children, gather round. Allow me to rest in my creaky rocking chair, take up my knitting, and tell you a story about young Elizabeth’s magical 21st birthday.  

Hazelnut Meringue Cake

Hazelnut Meringue Cake | From SugarHero.com

Let us now take a moment of silence to honor the 30+ egg whites who gave their lives in service of making the perfect hazelnut meringue. Rest in peace, good buddies. Lest you gasp and clutch your grocery budget in horror, this recipe doesn’t require anywhere near 30 egg whites. It does, apparently, require one…
