Chocolate Cake with Raspberry White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting As good as the cake I shared with you yesterday was (and it was mighty good), I simply could not resist pairing that heavenly white chocolate cream cheese frosting with some real chocolate. And since two cakes are certainly better than one, only a week after I made the raspberry cake I went ahead and threw this puppy together. I used the recipe that my friend Lindsay uses for her chocolate ganache cake and it worked beautifully. The frosting tasted just as good on this chocolate cake as it did on the raspberry cake. The subtle flavor of raspberry in the frosting complemented the richness of this classic chocolate cake very nicely. I can’t decide which cake I liked better.

Cookies and Cream Cupcakes Cake is not my favorite treat, which is one reason I like cupcakes so much. I feel they are the perfect portion size, and sometimes I cannot even finish a full one. That is sooo not the case with these cupcakes. These are dreamy. Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) or to eat during a football game. How to Decorate Cookies with Royal Icing Welcome to the first in what I plan to be a recurring “How-To” series here on Brown Eyed Baker. While recipes are all well and good, there are some techniques that are best explained in a step-by-step method, with pictures included (at least this is how I learn best). As I was decorating my Stanley Cup Playoffs cookies last week I thought that doing a tutorial on how to decorate cookies with royal icing would be a great first How-To post. I was always very good at baking snowmen, Christmas trees, angels and the like in December, slapping on some buttercream, a few sprinkles and calling it a day. Not that it isn’t good.

Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Cookie Bars! Good Thursday! Phew what a week, school started Tuesday for the boys and we are all still trying to get used to the new schedules. The earlier bedtime has been the trickiest. I have to admit, it’s been 7 years since I’ve had 4 hours to myself in the mornings. I hardly know what to do with myself, ok that was a joke. It’s great and I’m finding plenty to do.

Wednesday Baking-Ice Cream Crunch Cake This is yet another no-bake recipe for you to use when it’s just too hot to turn on your oven. I found this recipe years ago when I signed up for a Recipe-A-Day email list. It’s not the most frugal recipe ever (brownies or some other baked good will usually be cheaper), but it’s a lot cheaper than a prepared ice cream cake is, especially if you manage to find ice cream on a good sale. This makes a fairly large cake so if you have a small family, you might want to cut the recipe in half.

rainbow ice cream cone cake bites....! ....so to occupy some time during hurricane irene this past weekend, made these goodies!......which were made with some left over frozen cupcakes....and didn't really feel like making a new batch of buttercream just for these....so instead of cake bites made with crumbled cake and frosting...they are made with marshmallow fluff...!....and you may be thinking....."where's the rainbow"....? ...inside of course....!...so really these are faux mini ice cream cones made with multi colored cupcakes, fluff, and vanilla candy melts.....

Death By Oreo Cupcakes They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better.

Upside Down Apple Pie If you consider yourself “pie crust challenged”, this recipe is your new best friend. I first saw this pie over at Lisa’s blog and I knew I had to give it a try, it looked delicious. While I have no problem making pie crust, so manypeople have had bad experiences making pie crust from scratch andhave just given up.

Blueberry Lime Salsa I made you something with vegetables! Sort of. [?] It’s really important that I stress the vegetableness going on today considering I have a mouthful of white trash this very instant. Are you familiar with white trash? Chocolate Cake In 5 Minutes! — Dizzy Dee So, Someone gave me a link to This Yesterday, and after reading the comments I decided to try this, but with modifications. I mixed together THROUGHLY: 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda 3 1/2 Tbsp. Flour 2 Tbsp. How to Make Marshmallow Fondant This time I decided to make it with those mini fruit flavored marshmallows. I had to sort them by colour first. I figured they would add a little bit of flavor to the fondant so I wouldn't have to add much flavoring oil. I use gel colours to dye my fondant but regular food colouring will work too. You won't be able to get really dark colours without making your fondant sticky, but for lighter colours you can just even it out with more icing sugar.

Leftover Halloween Candy Recipes A house full of bags of mini Milky Way and Snickers bars, Gobstoppers and Nerds is almost a necessary evil this time of year. But after the trick-or-treaters have come and gone, what’s a cook to do with all that leftover candy? First, consider reducing your haul — by U.S.
