Mint Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you wearing green? Gleefully pinching friends and strangers alike? Stuffed full of cabbage? Drunk before noon? Reminiscing fondly about the time St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland? What a weird, wonderful holiday this is. In keeping with this solemn celebration of Ireland’s patron saint, I have made you…

Birthday Present Mini Cakes [Happy Birthday SugarHero!]

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but my baby is turning two! Well, not my real, human-type baby. He’s only one and a half. But my other baby, my blog baby, the baby that you drool over and comment on and are reading right now? That baby is two years old this month. Happy birthday,…

Brain Cupcakes

brain-cupcakes-1

This one goes out to all the zombies out there—I brought you brains, sweet braaaaaiiiiins. Although, in full disclosure, I served these to some friends who weren’t sure whether they were brains or intestines. And I have to admit, I can see the intestines comparison too—so think of these as the disgusting food blogger version…

Spiderweb Cupcakes and Chocolate Spiders

Halloween is next week, eeeeee! I wasn’t always the biggest Halloween enthusiast (although I always did like the candy…) but since becoming a parent, I’ve gotten into it in a weird way. I think it’s because I now have a small person I can force into whatever cheesy costume I can dream up. Last year…

Pumpkin Layer Cake and #SavorTheSavings with KitchenAid

Thanks to KitchenAid, Sears, and Mami Innovative Media for sponsoring this post. I finally cracked and opened my first pumpkin can of the season. I tried to stay strong, you guys. But it’s the third week of October and it’s still in the mid-80’s here and our AC isn’t working and I am sweating like…

Bumblebee Cake

Bumblebee Cake

I made this sweet little bumblebee cake for a friend’s daughter’s birthday last week. I don’t do too many special occasion cakes any more, so it’s always fun to dust off the old fondant rolling pin and get down to business. The party was bee themed, and I took my design inspiration from the super-cute…

Pear Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream

Pear Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream | SugarHero.com

Buckle up, cupcakes, there is major cuteness ahoy. What, like you’ve never made a recipe just so you could top it with an adorable miniature candy fruit? Actually, these pear cupcakes served a dual purpose: I got to indulge my love of whimsy and painfully literal cupcake decorating, and also got to address what is…

Cream Cheese Cake with Red Velvet Fudge Frosting

Fun fact: if you look up “showstoppers” on Google images, you get a lot of pictures of girls in lingerie, marquee lights, Barry Manilow references (??), and at least one My Little Pony picture. What’s missing from these results? No, not more My Little Pony Pictures. This gorgeous showstopper of a cake: Okay, so you…
