Cakes / Cupcakes
When I saw this “Magic Cake” recipe on Pinterest two weeks ago, I was floored.
I wanted to make a fancy schmancy cake for a co-worker's birthday. She is a big chai fan so I knew I wanted to use the same flavors in her cake.
Two days ago, I shared with you how completely obsessed I was with this Magic Custard Cake recipe . If you read about my infatuation for this magical three layer cake, you’ll understand why I’m totally enamored with it.
Hoping to undertake another “looks-like-something-else” baking project, genius food blogger ladybird undertook a literal cupcake creation that would give even the Blooming Flower Cake Pot Cake a run for its literal money. Made from a batch of vanilla cupcakes, white chocolate ganache, white fondant for the cup, Italian meringue icing and a mini marshmallow topping.
Because it’s fun for me, I’ve decided that today is the day that I will embarrass my former boss.
Happy American Thanksgiving! I was sitting here planning a bunch of upcoming baking posts, when I realized that we’ve never really chatted about some of the basic steps that make for consistent baking and caking. I thought that it may be helpful to post these tips now, before we get too hot and heavy into more cake recipes. This collection of tips and tricks is made up of suggestions that happen to work for me, that I have either learned from the pros, read in books, or figured out along the way (and am still learning). I can say that implementing these steps completely changed my life as a baker, and I thought it would be fun to share.
Pardon me for not putting this up sooner.
Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel…What a wonderful combination! Without a doubt a couple of my favourites. I am definitely way into the whole salty/sweet thing. So I was very happy to make this Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel layer cake for my friend Erin’s Birthday get-together. I’m happy to say that this cake turned out great! Let me just describe it for you.
Oh friends. Hi. How are you? Judging from the above picture, you can assume I’m doing well. I’m not going hungry, that’s for sure. Guess what?
W końcu zaczął się sezon na rabarbar, już nie mogłam się doczekać. Uwielbiam wypieki z rabarbarem, należą do moich ulubionych. Dzisiaj proponuję bardzo smaczne ciasto z rabarbarem i orzechami laskowymi, co stanowi naprawdę dobre połączenie. Ciasto jest wilgotne, miękkie, lekko kwaskowate. Trzeba je kroić na spore kawałki. Pachnie wanilią i przyprawami korzennymi.
I love salted caramel. Does anyone else? There is something about that salty goodness that comes along with it, and it really compliments a lot of flavors!
Hey Everyone!! I must be in an apple phase cause every recipe with apples is appealing to me lately. I had to make these though.
We’re eating fudgy, moist Earl Grey chocolate layer cake filled with lavender ganache and frosted with cream cheese icing. On my other website, FoodPornDaily , I often get email requests for the food featured in the daily images. An old one that I still get requests for is the Earl Grey chocolate cake. There is something magical about the way that Earl Grey tea combines with chocolate to make a mildly floral yet roasty fudgy flavor that my tongue just can’t get enough of.
Some of you may be detoxing this week after last week’s holiday. Even so, a warm muffin is hard to resist at breakfast or in the waning afternoon hours. These vanilla chai muffins highlight a wonderful blend of spices: cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, star anise, vanilla.
