Easter Polka Dot Cake

My parents were in town last week for my son’s birthday party, so they were around when I was making and photographing some SugarHero desserts. When my mom walked into the kitchen and saw this cake, she stopped, smiled and said, “Oh honey, everything you make is so—” A pause. What was she going to…

Almond Joy Boston Cream Pie

I hate to waste food. HATE it. I will literally eat leftovers that are on the verge of spoiling, even things that I didn’t like very much in the first place, rather than throw them out. (Of course, my ideal solution to that problem is to make Jason eat them instead, but sometimes he outsmarts…

Sky-High Pink and Red Velvet Cake

Pink and Red Velvet Cake

By this point, I like to think that we’re friends. I mean, this beautiful friendship bracelet that I’m making for you certainly indicates that. And, because we’re friends, you know me. You know that I like hot chocolate and bread pudding and deep-frying ridiculous things. You know that I shun cake mixes whenever possible, but…

  Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love. Some people may think it’s about the love for a significant other, or family, or best friends, or even pets. Those people are dead wrong.

Coconut Layer Cake & A Cookbook Giveaway!

So I heard it might be cold where you live! Being a California wussy, I’m not really familiar with cold weather, but I’ve seen movies and read books about this substance you call “snow” and apparently it comes from the sky and is quite chilly and it requires you to wear cute boots and sassy…

Peanut Butter Cup Yule Log

Thanks to Kraft Foods for sponsoring this post. I’m sorry, I know this is a boring, clichéd thing to say, but honestly, how is it December already? It feels like just last week I was complaining about how it was already January 2013, and here we are, just a few weeks from a whole new…
