Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day to you! And to you! And to us all! And Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you who didn’t get my semi-obscure TV show reference, or who hate women’s suffrage. Yes, even suffrage haters deserve love today. Anyhow. It’s Valentine’s Day. And I have cake, and roses, and lots of…

Red Hot Love Cookies

Red Hot Love Cookies | From SugarHero.com

Hello, lovers. I know it has been a little tame around these parts. A little lovey-dovey. A little girly. A little too sweet, if you know what I mean. Today’s recipe is intended to counteract all that sickly sweetness with a giant punch of flavor, right in the kisser. If you’re the type who likes…

Giant Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Mousse Cakes

Happy World Nutella Day! This is one food holiday I always look forward to. I’ve celebrated it for the past several years, so by now I have a healthy little collection of Nutella-based desserts on the blog, and I’m always looking to top myself and go a little bigger than the year before. Five years…

Chocolate Rasperry Mini Crepe Cakes

Chocolate Raspberry Mini Crepe Cakes | From SugarHero.com

I don’t go for many Valentine’s Day traditions. I have no love for diamonds or gold jewelry, I’m not a big fan of red roses, and I need more boxes of chocolate like I need a hole in the head. You know that clichéd sitcom situation when someone opens a closet and a giant pile…

Watercolor Rose Sugar Cookies

Watercolor Rose Sugar Cookies | From SugarHero.com

I am so not a girly-girl. I don’t care about fashion, my day-to-day hairstyle is a very chic French look called a “bun” (maybe you’ve heard of it?), and I’m pretty sure most of the products in my makeup drawer date back to my college days. I don’t normally care for overly frilly or feminine…

Hello, gorgeous. You are looking especially beautiful this morning. Is that a different haircut? A new outfit? And what is that ravishing smell? *sniiiiiiff* Sorry if I got a bit fresh right now, it’s just that looooove is in the air and I’m in a Valentine’s Day state of mind! Hard as it is to…

Cherry Hot Chocolate

Merry Christmas Eve, most beloved internet friends! We’ve abandoned our usual sunny home and are having ourselves a genuinely white Christmas this year, playing in the snow, making snowmen, and, it must be said, shivering in our boots. Asher is at a magical age where everything is new and exciting and he really understands the…

Snow Globe Cupcakes with Gelatin Bubbles

Snow Globe Cupcakes | From SugarHero.com

I’ve been dreaming and scheming about these snow globe cupcakes for over a month now. It took a lot of experimenting, several last-minute gelatin purchases, some late-night disasters, and a few choice words mumbled under my breath, but at last, this Christmas dessert finally lives up to the idea in my head! The cupcakes themselves…
