Where the Wild Things Are Birthday Cake

wild-things-cake-collage

My son Asher turned two this month. I know. I KNOW. It seems like only yesterday I was writing a blog announcement and posting pictures of him in a wee Hershey’s kisses hat. Like every parent always says, the past few years have sped by and I can’t believe I now have a toddler who runs and…

Easter Cake Push Pops

Easter Cake Push Pops | SugarHero.com

First of all, thank you all so much for the kind words when I indulged in some navel-gazing in my last post. It was really reassuring to hear that everyone wrestles with the same questions about writing for others versus writing for yourself, and it sounds like we’ve all come to similar conclusions. (Besides, who even wants…

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…

Marbled Easter Egg Truffles

Happy Monday! …Just kidding, there’s no such thing as a happy Monday, but wishing everyone a “Middling Monday” just didn’t have the same ring to it. At my house we’re still recovering from a crazy weekend  that included my son’s birthday party (yay) and yet another ear infection (boo). I have some fun Easter desserts in…

Caramelized White Chocolate Truffles

This is a game changer. In the past, I’ve always tolerated white chocolate as “that other chocolate which is not nearly as good as the dark stuff, but which pairs nicely with raspberries and can be used to make mousses when you want other flavors to shine, and which is legitimately delicious in macadamia nut cookies.” Okay,…

Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownie Sandwiches

Being a procrastinator is awesome. I made these Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownie Sandwiches last week and fully intended to post them over the weekend. Well, things happened—things like running 18 miles on Saturday (yes, long distance training is back!) and not-coincidental things like zonking out at 9pm on Sunday night and sleeping for 10…

Grapefruit Marshmallows

Grapefruit Marshmallows

I’m back! I know, you probably didn’t miss me (…or notice I was gone? Sniff) but I missed you! Our friendship is unequal like that, and I don’t mind. Last week I took a mini blogging break and visited a friend in San Francisco, read a book, ate all the things, and remembered why I…

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…
