Rainbow Cake in a Jar

Rainbow Cake in a Jar
I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight. In this simple recipe, a basic white cake is turned into a slew of bright colors, baked to perfection, then topped with a creamy white frosting. Cakes baked in jars can be topped with traditional metal canning lids and stored in the fridge for up to five days. They make a great treat to ship to someone, so long as you can ensure delivery to it’s final destination within 3 days.

Single Serving Pie in a Jar These are individual-sized pies made in little glass jars that can go straight from your freezer to your oven to your mouth. SO cute.

Pie in Jar Correcting The World's Wrongs With Campfire Bananas - Home - Burgh Baby "What are you doing?" my husband asked. He was staring at me as if I had eighteen heads, each with 20 piercings and Mike Tyson-esque tattoos. Today’s post is a lesson in improvisation. Why? Well, this project was INTENDED to be a candy tray, a fancy version of something I saw done flawlessly at Tutto Bella. After reading through that tutorial, I thought it would be a breeze! Famous last words, right?

Lincoln’s Red Velvet (Cheesecake) Cake Wednesday, April 7, 2010 Lincoln’s Red Velvet (Cheesecake) Cake Psssst…. there’s a surprise inside this pale exterior! Chocolate Nutella Scotcheroos Chocolate Nutella Scotcheroos This spin on the classic Rice Krispies Treats is kicked up with the addition of peanut butter, chocolate, Nutella and butterscotch. These delicious no-bake Chocolate Nutella Scotcheroos cookie bars are the perfect answer to those of us who want a little indulgence but don’t want to turn on the oven during this scorching heat. Central Illinois is under another heat wave and with tomorrow’s temperatures heading towards 98 degrees, there is no way I am turning on the oven. When I saw this recipe for scotcheroos with Nutella I knew I had to make them. I LOVE Nutella…it is almost an addiction.

Millionaire's Shortbread Since one half of the blue-eyed baking squad is currently blogging from waaaay across the pond in London, we figured we'd bake you lovely duckies a British treat. Shortbread. Millionaire's shortbread (ooooh aaaah). Don't get too excited. There's no money in this crumbly deliciousness. But there is crumbly deliciousness which counts for something right?

Rum and Caramel Banana Cream Trifle Rum and Caramel Banana Cream Trifle ~ Rum, banana cream filling, toasted pecans and coconut, salted caramel buttercream, chocolate sauce-are you feeling fat and happy yet? Well, I certainly was after this concoction that pretty much combines some of my favorite flavors. Rum and Caramel Banana Cream Trifle I’m a huge fan of easy desserts that require little work and lots of stacked flavors that can be composed as high as my serving vessel will allow me. Did that just make me sound like a total lazy over indulger or what?

Bold Book Shelving Branches Naturally Along Interior Walls Want to bring a bit of nature inside, but not have to worry about watering the plants or picking up after the leaves? Well, this branched, tree-shaped bookcase might be just the thing. One hung from the wall itself, simple biscuit joints connect ever-smaller branches that spoke out from the primary limb, providing niches for books, odds and ends in the void spaces Olivier Dollé creates along the way. Abstractly, they are simply attractive organic forms, turning a blank wall into something bordering on artistic – practically, they avoid the one-size-fits all mandate of regularly-stacked shelves where each level provides an enclosed box with the same height and width as the one below it.

Dirt Cake I’m really excited about today’s post. I remember Dirt Cakes from when I was younger so I’m feeling a bit nostalgic. Plus I’m a sucker for cute stuff and this Dirt Cake is too cute!

How to Make Peanut Butter S'Mores Turnovers Peanut Butter- S’Mores Turnovers I’m not much of a camper. My husband often takes my son on camping trips, and I happily stay behind and thank the gods for our bug-free house, cozy bed and well-stocked kitchen. I always send them off in comfort… marinate a little meat for them to throw on the grill, pack up some convenience foods and bake a few goodies too. When they return from their camping weekends, I hear mostly about the evenings sitting around the campfire. Story telling, snuggling in blankets, singing songs and roasting marshmallows for S’Mores seem to be recurring favorites.
