Strawberry Champagne Ruffle Cake for a Virtual Baby Shower – Cook Like a Champion Without a doubt, one of the most rewarding things about food blogging is all the amazing friends I’ve made along the way. Even though we’ve never met in person, I am so thankful to have made such wonderful friends, and I hope we’ll all have the chance to meet someday. I hate that we’re spread all over the country because I know we would all have a fabulous time together. There are some things that simply have to be celebrated with friends, no matter the distance between them. That’s why I decided to host a virtual baby shower for Annie . I am so grateful to have a friend like her, and I just couldn’t let her pregnancy go by without celebrating it in a special way. Ashely from Delish made mock champagne punch . Shawnda from Confections of a Foodie Bride made pink/blue corn blinis with crab and avocado crema . Nikki from Pennies on a Platter made baby hummus sandwiches . Elly from Elly Says Opa made stuffed mushrooms . This shower has quite the dessert lineup, too.
Hi Hat Cupcakes I did it. I finally made them. Hi Hat Cupcakes have consumed my cupcake thoughts since I first saw their tall chocolate dipped tops online after I started blogging. But, I have to tell you, I’ve been nervous to make them. But this weekend, I tried them. So I decided to use the only recipe I remembered seeing. > Update: I just realized this recipe is also from the book, Cupcakes! Chopped chocolate. But even better with the frosting. If I had paid attention to the directions beforehand I don’t know if I would have been as eager to get started. 12 minutes later and a candy thermometer in check to make sure the frosting formed stiff peaks at the right temperature. Actually, it never made it to just the right temp, but after 12 minutes… I was over holding the hand mixer. So I took a leap of faith it would work and piped it on the cupcakes… as tall as I could get it. The cupcakes went in the freezer while I prepared for the scary part. One bag of semi-sweet chocolate. Tasty. Okay, here goes…
Caramel Apple Pie Cupcakes « The Craving Chronicles It seems like once the weather cools down everyone wants to jump right into pumpkin season. Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin as much as anyone else, but to me September is apple season. I was thinking about how often apples get overshadowed by pumpkin a few weeks ago when my husband asked me if I wanted to attend a dinner party with some of his coworkers. It took me a while to decide on an approach for these cupcakes. Ultimately, I decided the best way to pack that punch of apple flavor into a cupcake was to use apple pie filling. I was apprehensive while putting these cupcakes together. In the end, they didn’t. They tasted approximately a million times better than I had imagined. I was hoping for good cupcakes, but these were amazing. Caramel Apple Pie Cupcakes Printable Recipe (Includes all sub-recipes) Makes about 24 cupcakes There are several steps to complete before assembling the cupcakes, but some can be done a day ahead to speed things up.

chocolate peanut butter cake Alex’s birthday was this past weekend and in case you are new here, let me give you a loose outline of a Standard Dessert Alex Politely Requests: Chocolate. Chocolate with chocolate. Chocolate with caramel. What, can you sense a theme or something? This year we added one more to the chocolate cake pile: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake. Because did I mention the chocolate cake? You might be noticing a recurring theme here this summer, but what can I say? If you like baking cakes, especially celebration cakes, you really want to get this book. But here’s the other best part (you know, if the notion of a boston cream pie cake wasn’t enough to convince you)–a lot of these cake recipes are one-bowl. Peanut butter, previously: Peanut Butter Brownies and Peanut Butter CookiesOne year ago: Brownie Mosaic Cheesecake Sour Cream-Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate-Peanut Butter Glaze Adapted, only barely, from Sky High: Irresistable Triple-Layer Cakes This cake is INTENSE. 1. 2.
Coney Island Cheesecake. I’m so excited that I can’t even stand it. I mean. Look at this. Guys. Prettiest cheesecake ever. This gorgeous cake is the brainchild of my friend Rosie of Sweetapolita. Which is why I was a little nervous to attempt to bake anything from her new book, The Sweetapolita Bakebook, because how could I, the queen of impatience and imperfection possess the precision and patience for a creation as such? Welp. My sprinkle-loving heart almost gave out of me. Did you know? The cake had my name alllll over it. P.S. for some reason I keep calling these sprinkles SEQUINS. Um, so let’s discuss. THE CRUST. This crust is made out of animal crackers, sugar cones and salty, roasted peanuts. Oh and butter. The inside is the most decadent cheesecake ever. Plus, the sprinkles. Can you even? You probably can because you’re not basic. Then. The cotton candy whipped cream. It’s a big, fat carnival in a CHEESECAKE. This is by far one of the most indulgent creations that has ever come out of my kitchen. And! Seeeee?
Circus Animal Cookie Cheesecake Cravings—why fight them? What’s the point? Eventually one way or another they always seem to prevail. That always seems to be the case—for me at least. Besides, aren’t cravings a way for our bodies to tell us they need something? This past weekend for example, my body apparently was in desperate need of circus animal cookies. I’ll go ahead and share it with you just in case you ever find yourself in the same situation.

The BEST Carrot Cake Recipe This is my favorite recipe for homemade carrot cake! This cake is so easy to make, perfectly moist, and topped with an easy homemade cream cheese frosting. I feel like carrot cake is a dessert most people tend to only make around Easter. But honestly, carrot cake is such an incredible dessert and I think it should be enjoyed all year long. I know it can be a bold statement to call a recipe the best, but I truly mean it with this one. To make this carrot cake, you’ll start by mixing up your dry ingredients. I also really love some spice in my carrot cake so I use some ground cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. For the wet ingredients you’ll be using some oil, eggs, vanilla, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and applesauce. As always, I use a bit more brown sugar than granulated sugar because it adds more moisture and flavor to this carrot cake. I know some carrot cake recipes call for raisins or nuts, but I prefer to leave them out because I know that not everyone is a fan of them. Prep time:
Berry Mascarpone Layer Cake This Berry Mascarpone Layer Cake has layers of fluffy vanilla cake, fresh berry filling and mascarpone whipped cream frosting! It’s light, fruity and perfect for spring! I never really realized how much of an effect caffeine has until I stopped drinking it recently. As part of the IVF process, caffeine isn’t really recommended so I’ve been doing my best to not drink it. Much more yummy. Point is though – the lack of a picker-upper is brutal! My go-to move right now is to play some of my favorite music and dance around while working. Yay for 90s music! And this is my cake. Boy, do I love this cake! This cake starts with a moist and easy vanilla cake. Then there’s the berry filling. The mascarpone whipped cream frosting is used both to add to the cake filling and to frost the cake. The final cake is perfect for spring, Easter and all through the summer!

Sangria Cupcakes | The First Year May11 These Sangria Cupcakes are made with fruit in the batter and a red wine buttercream, these are the perfect party cupcakes! They can be a great start to a relaxing weekend. Let me tell you a little bit about how my week has gone… So.. Eeekkk! Don’t give me a lecture on how I should be checking over my statements better and yadada. I was scammed by Vistaprint – a big brand name photo and card printing company. Sunday night I was looking at my credit card account because I was getting ready to pay the bill and I saw a charge from Vistaprint for $9.99, which was posted on my account 2 days prior. I don’t know what kind of scam they used – some online reviews were saying that if they offer you a coupon code and you use it, in the very fine print in a separate link, it says something about a monthly membership fee. I decided I didn’t even want to mess around with Vistaprint, so I went straight to my credit card company instead. Why I Need These These Sangria Cupcakes Sangria Cupcakes
