Say it with Cake - {Super Epic Rainbow Cake}
Click here to buy a print! Two cakes in one week. I might have a bit of a problem. Anyway, I made this cake for a good friend. A friend that started as my worst enemy 12 years back, a friend that dreams of losing shoes and a friend that understands the great significance of screaming "EARTHQUAKE!" As soon as she told me she was having a going-away party, I thought of the perfect dessert to tote along. The six individually baked layers match her insanity (in a good way!!!) That wasn't very eloquent, was it? But the most important aspect of this cake, the thing that makes it so her is the fact that it's frosted in white buttercream. And then it all makes sense. PEACE OUT, G! Edit March 28, 2010 The following video was mailed to me by the Daly family (thanks again - you guys are awesome!!). Super Epic Rainbow CakeI'm adding a disclaimer here: THERE IS A LOT OF FROSTING/BUTTER IN THIS CAKE. Watch me make this cake with Ms. Printable Recipe Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

Rainbow Cake in a Jar | The Family Kitchen 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.

Martha Stewart's Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes Recipe Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Wednesday, 21st July 2010 I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like Oreo cookies or Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes. Who could resist cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies? I went out yesterday to do my weekly shop, came home, and before I was able to bring in the first grocery bag Matt was hunting for the cookies and cream ice cream. One of Matt’s favourite desserts of all time is cherry cheesecake and I thought to myself why not Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes, that should satisfy his craving. Plus these cheesecakes are super easy to prepare, everything comes together in one bowl and there’s no crushing chocolate wafers with a rolling pin, then melting butter, baking the crust first and then baking a second time when filled. Drop an Oreo cookie into each muffin tin, make filling, add chopped cookies, bake, and enjoy, how easy is that? I can’t wait to try my hand at homemade Oreo cookies.

6 recettes de granités sucrés et salés Pondu par Flo le 22 août 2012 Les granités sont une alternative plus légère aux glaces, parfois très crémeuses et lourdes. Pas compliquées à cuisiner, voici quelques recettes sucrées et salées pour refroidir votre été ! Publié initialement le 11 juillet 2012 L’été n’est visiblement pas pour l’égalité météorologique sur l’ensemble du territoire français. Technique de base pour tous les granités Le mélange liquide que l’on a obtenu en mixant tous les ingrédients doit être versé dans un plat (type plat à gratin, en verre ou en terre), placé au congélateur quelques heures, puis la glace obtenue doit être grattée régulièrement toute les heures avec une fourchette pour former les cristaux de granité. Granité fraises-menthe Prenez une barquette de fraises (disons 500g). >> Le truc en plus : vous pouvez donc ajoutez quelques feuilles de menthe finement ciselées (attention, la menthe, c’est FORT, n’en abusez pas au risque de ne plus sentir le goût de la fraise). Granité tomate basilic tabasco

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. For the cake portion, I chose a One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe because 1. it's quick 2. it is easy, and 3. it fits my prerequisite for a light ending on date night. I should say, a light ending provided you don't eat too many. The cakes are just sweet enough, and have a light, fluffy crumb - the perfect vehicle for rich chocolate buttercream. Notes for flaming strawberries:Any alcohol below 80 proof will not ignite well. Shaina made a margarita version of this on Babble Food. Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Yield: About 20 cupcakes [click to print]Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

s’more pie A year ago, I made s’mores from scratch and brought them to the Memorial Day barbecue on my friend Jocelyn’s roof, celebrating the thousands of other hottie uniformed types that had sailed in for Fleet Week. [I just spelled that "Weak." It's all so telling, innit?] We assembled them from Nancy Silverton’s graham crackers from the La Brea Bakery cookbook, as featured on 101 Cookbooks, [which were, incidentally the most accurately-flavored homemade graham crackers I've baked, much closer that the ones I'd attempted a couple years ago from Retro Desserts] and Thomas Keller’s marshmallows, as featured on Cooking for Engineers, and packed them up with skewers for toasting and giant bars of Hershey’s milk chocolate (exactly what we used in summer camp). Second only to the men in uniform, they were the hit of the party. Or, you would be if I were not making it up to you today with something I declare an even bigger hit: S’more Pie. I was dead wrong on each concern.
