I couldn't believe my eyes this week when I saw the ad for Pumpkin Spice Lattes in my local Starbucks. Pumpkin Spice already? But there's still a little more summer to be had, isn't there? Of course, it was impossible to stay upset for too long; after all, this is lovely pumpkin -- one of my favorite flavors of all time -- that we're talking about! So, I ransacked my pumpkin-flavored recipes to find this one for Pumpkin Cupcakes . You'll recognize that it's a classic, but the cinnamon in the Cream Cheese Frosting gives it a little something extra.
So much of learning how to bake seems to come through trial and error. Meringues fell flat? Must not have whipped them enough. Burnt cookies? Better check the oven temperature. Let us help take some of the guess work out of your baking so you can concentrate on...well, baking.

I made this bread late at night and poured a glaze on top to intensify it even more. I knew there was a problem before cutting into it because it was sunken in the middle. I found out that the innards of the bread were not fully cooked. I went back to the website to see what others had said about the cake, and they mentioned that the gooey center was the best part, but my cake was a bit too gooey.

My husband will tell you that his favorite dessert my chocolate caramel cheesecake , the orange-chocolate bundt cake , Mom’s chocolate chip sour cream coffee cake or the bourbon-pumpkin cheesecake but don’t believe him — he lies. Alex’s favorite cake looks comes from either Billy’s or Magnolia bakery, looks to him like “opened Oreos” and is called an icebox cake. It is also, I am so sorry to say, a bit of a sham.
Dear Sweet Billie From My Church kindly shared her Italian Cream Cake recipe with me today. And now, because you’re equally dear and sweet, I’m sharing it with you. I’ll bake you one soon with lots of detailed photos, but for now I’ll just revel in the leftovers and simply share the recipe—which really speaks for itself. If you’ve never listened to me before, and I wouldn’t blame you if you haven’t, please listen to me now: You want to make this cake. Thank you, Billie!
Brian is a man that loves to double down on his chocolate . His favorite cake in the world, one that his grandmother makes for him specifically every time we visit her in West Virginia, is chocolate cake with fudgey chocolate frosting. His birthday was two weeks ago, and of course you know I had to do it up right by making his version of cake bliss.
