Birthday Party Hat Cakes | SugarHero.com

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…

Lavender Lemon Bars

Look, I’m a simple girl with simple needs. I like my slippers fuzzy, and my gossip magazines trashy. I like my water cold and my chocolate hot, unless we’re talking about showers and ice cream, in which case, you should reverse that. And often, I like my desserts with a whiff of the flower garden…

Blueberry Crumble Pie

Blueberry Crumble Pie | From SugarHero.com

Ever since I started working for myself, national holidays haven’t been quite as exciting as they used to be. When I was a blazer-and-heels wearing office worker? You would see Memorial Day and other holidays circled on my calendar with three neon highlighters in different shades of desperation. Now that I’m a member of the…

Where the Wild Things Are Birthday Party Ideas

Where the Wild Things Are Cookies | SugarHero.com

Oh hey, remember when my son had a birthday over a month ago, and I posted all about his Where the Wild Things Are cake, and promised to follow up with party details shortly thereafter?

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.

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…

Petit Fours

Petit Fours | From SugarHero.com

I used to roll my eyes at Mother’s Day and voice unoriginal complaints about how it’s a “Hallmark holiday,” but now that I’m a mom? I’ll take that Hallmark card and those flowers, thank you very much, and I wouldn’t say no to a box of chocolates, either. I had a fantastic Mother’s Day yesterday—the…

Hazelnut Orange Chocolate Scones

Hazelnut Scones | SugarHero.com

When I first started thinking about desserts for our Mother’s Day tea party, I knew scones had to be on the menu. Jason and I have done a lot of tea partyin’ in our day—you know, for research purposes—and almost every afternoon tea we’ve attended involves some sort of scone situation. [“The Scone Situation”—good band name, or…
