Coconut Cake with Blueberry Frosting

Welcome to 2018!! It’s my first post of the year, and I’ve been through a lot of changes.  Two of the biggest and most impactful were that I received a promotion at work last fall, and got engaged between Thanksgiving and Christmas!  Both have had an impact on the future of this blog.  My new…

Classic Yellow Funfetti Cake

Spring always puts me in a festive mood, especially when it’s bright and sunny out, and the flowers are just beginning to bloom. I wanted to bring that feeling of spring into the house, so what better way than to make a classic yellow funfetti cake. I’m really into adding sprinkles to just about everything….

Sour Cream Cake

I was catching up with an old friend over the weekend and we spent a lot of time talking about baking.  When we used to work together, we would often exchange recipes.  I found myself wanting a cake in the worst way when I got home.  I was in the mood for a simple yellow…

Sweet Potato Cake with Pecans and Brown Sugar Frosting

I have to say that I’ve never thought of using sweet potatoes beyond the holiday side dish with marshmallow topping or in pie form, so making sweet potato cornbread a few weeks ago was an eye opener for me.  Now I’m really into looking for other recipes that I can make with a sweet potatoes. …

Tomato Cupcakes with Balsamic Frosting

Don’t let the title of the post put you off reading any further.  When I saw this recipe for tomato cupcakes with balsamic frosting on How to Philosophize with Cake’s blog, it took me a few minutes to comprehend what I read.  Savory dessert is so in right now and when I saw this recipe…

Pancake Cake with Maple Cream Frosting

  My son and I finally had a free morning where we didn’t have to run off to karate or swim class. Well, actually, we decided to play hooky. We were feeling a little lazy, and wanted a morning where we didn’t have to get up and run around. Pancakes were requested for breakfast, and…

Payday Cake

Last week I made a Kentucky Bourbon Cake that I loved so much, I wanted to adapt it to a layer cake recipe.  I sat for a few minutes and thought about the filling and frosting.  I wasn’t really in the mood for chocolate or pastel colored frosting, so I started thumbing through my older…

Peanut Butter Brownies

My mom asked me to send her these brownies. She’s been in the mood for peanut butter and chocolate ice cream lately (her favorite), but it’s been soooo cold in Michigan, the last thing she wants to do is eat something cold. So, she did the next best thing. She called me up and asked…

Cherpumple

A friend of mine posted this link on my Facebook page. It was for something called a Cherpumple. I’d never heard of it before. It was a three layer cake consisting of a cherry pie baked into a chocolate cake, beneath a pumpkin pie baked in a spice cake, beneath an apple pie baked in…

Sonic Birthday Cake

It’s about a month from my son’s birthday and we’re hanging out in the living room. It occurred to me that it was close to his birthday and I should probably start finding a bakery to order his cake, find out the theme etc. I asked him what kind of cake he was thinking about…

Funfetti Cake

I’ve finally realized and accepted that I’m not a very creative person when it comes to baking. I’ll never come up with a clever flavor combo, or super cool design for a cake. This fact has been proven after seeing many very creative posts on other blogs and pinterest (I love and hate pinterest). Never…
