Lemon Coconut Snowball Cake

Lemon Coconut Snowball Cake | From SugarHero.com

Okay, I know I wrote the word “snowball” in the title, but I promise this is not going to be yet another blog post about the weather. If you’re anything like me, you’re a little sick of reading all the breathless September: Summer or Fall?? discussion posts, and I say this as someone who is…

Ice Cream Sundae Cake

Ice Cream Sundae Cake | From SugarHero.com

Quick! Name the summeriest thing you can think of. Sand-crusted weekends at the beach? Long, sticky days at the pool working on your skin cancer tan? Frosty drinks beneath a palm tree? Hearing that horrible Iggy Azalea song one too many times and throwing your radio across the room in disgust? All good answers, but…

Banana Meringue Cake with Cinnamon-Sour Cream Ganache

Banana Meringue Cake | From SugarHero.com

Riddle me this: why do bananas only have a 2-hour window in which they are the perfect texture? I buy them slightly green, and they stay slightly green for days and days. If I try to eat them early, they’re hard and astringent and barely sweet. Then all of a sudden every single banana in…

Radiant Orchid Mini Cakes

Radiant Orchid Mini Cakes | From SugarHero.com

The first thing you should know about me is that I am NOT a design geek or decorating enthusiast. We moved into our current place four years ago, and I literally just hung some art in the living room a few months ago. Before that, we lived with bare walls painted a charming industrial beige….

American Flag Layer Cake for the Fourth of July

American Flag Layer Cake | SugarHero.com

Last year I only posted one measly Fourth of July recipe on SugarHero. Boooo! Why so skimpy on the patriotic desserts, SugarHero? This year I wanted to make up for that omission, so I decided to go big…really really big. Is there a better way to celebrate our country than with a larger-than-life American flag…

It’s almost dinnertime. It’s almost the weekend. I’m almost always craving cake. For these, and many more reasons, I bring you Birthday Party Hat Cakes. I’ve had the idea for these colorful hat-shaped cakes bouncing around my head for months! I wanted to make them to celebrate SugarHero’s second birthday last fall, but being a…

Raspberry Almond Spiral Cake

Thank you to Naturipe for sponsoring this post and the KitchenAid giveaway below! Traditional cake rolls are so last century. Now that it’s 2014, we are kicking it new school. We are no longer content to just roll our cakes—we’re spiraling them instead. Yes, despite what amusement park kiosks might have told you, Dippin’ Dots…

Neapolitan Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Neapolitan Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake | From SugarHero.com

I receive a lot of press releases in my inbox. They usually start with a chipper greeting and an assurance that  “I know your readers will love this!” before seguing into a pitch about gluten-free dog biscuits, or fat-burning pumpkins from Peru, or my personal favorite, a man who invented a new form of psychological…
