Faberge Egg Sugar Cookies

Look, I’m not saying the Easter Bunny is doing a terrible job. It can’t be easy to hit all those houses and fill all those baskets without the help of any reindeer whatsoever. I’m sympathetic. But I do think he could try a little harder. Plastic eggs? Filled with cheap jelly beans? Hollow bunnies made…

Easter Nest Cake

Easter Nest Cake | From SugarHero.com

Easter has really snuck up on me this year! I like it when it’s toward the end of April, so I have plenty of time to get out the decorations, dye eggs, buy fun things for baskets, eat lots of Cadbury mini eggs…okay, mostly I’m concerned with that last one. When it’s in the beginning…

Creme Brulee Doughnuts

Creme Brulee Doughnuts | From SugarHero.com

I first tried crème brulee doughnuts on a trip to New York City’s Doughnut Plant a few years ago. This would be the same Doughnut Plant trip where Jason & I bought 6 (or was it 8? Definitely no more than 10) doughnuts and ate them all ourselves…in one morning. In our defense, it’s a…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We’ve done the green foods thing. We’ve done the other green foods thing. We don’t mess with corned beef, potatoes, or cabbage of any sort around here, so the only thing left to do to get us in the St. Paddy’s Day spirit must be a rainbow dessert! Okay, fine, if…

Pistachio Orange Cake

Pistachio Orange Cake | From SugarHero.com

Because it’s almost spring. Because St. Patrick’s Day is next week. Because we could all use a mid-week pick-me-up. Because I can’t stop buying bags of pistachios. Because you never really need a reason for a beautiful layer cake. For these and many more reasons, say hello to Pistachio Orange Cake! I know layer cakes…

Mascarpone Rhubarb Stuffed French Toast

Mascarpone Rhubarb Stuffed French Toast | From SugarHero.com

Oh Friday, it’s so good to see you. It’s been a rough week. My son—overachiever that he is—is apparently getting an A in Germ Theory at preschool, because he managed to contract both Scarlet Fever and one of those weird toddler viruses at the same time. He’s been a coughing, congested, rashy, hive-y, fevery mess for…

Salted Honey Walnut Bars

Salted Honey Walnut Bars | From SugarHero.com

Are you on board the salted honey train? Thinking about hopping off? In the dining car, reading a newspaper and looking dapper? Or are you in favor of salted honey but tired of tortured food metaphors? Whatever your position on the salted honey trend, I hope you’re open to one more variation on the theme. You…
