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. But... I dunno for sure. 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!!).

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. cross-stitch cookies I’ve been dreaming of making a giant cross-stitch project for years now, and when I saw Jessica Decker’s oversized cross-stitched artworks, I became even more excited. It’s an immediately recognizable pattern, but seeing those little Xs blown-up in big, bold color is just so unexpected and beautiful. Jessica has brought yet another spin to traditional needle craft with this DIY tutorial for cross-stitch cookies.

Super Epic Rainbow Cake - Whisk Kid Recipes Super Epic Rainbow CakeI'm adding a disclaimer here: THERE IS A LOT OF FROSTING/BUTTER IN THIS CAKE. I used a lot because I wanted the cake to be very striking visually. It is intentional. Put in less if you want. Also, I'm not forcing you to eat this entire cake by yourself, so - seriously - quit freaking out about the butter. 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.

Mini Rainbow Cakes I’m working with Method on a few posts introducing their Clean Happy Campaign. Their new June video, High Five a Rainbow, is below these photos. I thought in honor of their newest rainbow themed video, I’d try my first attempt at a rainbow cake! I’ve never made one before (despite the internet’s obsession with them) and thought I’d try baking them in mini mason jars. English Language Arts: Writing Prompts/Journal Topics What is...
