Cinnamon Caramel Pecan Cake

It’s October, which means two things. 1. The entire series of Gilmore Girls is now on Netflix, so I will never again be a productive human being. 2. The house must always smell like cinnamon and toasty pecans ....more

No Bake Tiger Butter Tart

Have you heard of tiger butter? It’s basically just white chocolate, peanut butter, and dark chocolate all swirled together to look like tiger stripes. I was first introduced to tiger butter on my 7th birthday, so it’s kind of a nostalgic flavor for me ....more

Dark Chocolate Matcha Layer Cake

I’ve been having some anxiety about writing this post because I don’t know whether to call it matcha or matcha tea or matcha green tea. Are any of these redundant, or all they all correct? For now I’ll call it matcha, but please correct me if I’m wrong ....more

Tea for Two: Pistachio Orange Mini Cakes with Grand Marnier Cream Cheese Frosting

It’s no secret that I love mini cakes, or all things miniature for that matter. If you don’t share in these sentiments, you may want to cover your eyes because it’s about to get obnoxiously mini up in here. In college, my friends use to tease me about all of my mini kitchen things when they would come over ....more

Dark Chocolate Almond Cookies

I’ll admit that when I want a cookie, I don’t stray very often from the traditional chocolate chip variety. I have my go to recipe from Demolition Desserts that’s slightly crisp on the outside with perfectly chewy innards and the only time I’ll mess with it when I’m feeling a little nutty and then I’ll brown the butter. On occasion, I will try another recipe if it’s really intriguing, and the only time I’ll share it with you is if it’s exceptionally delicious ....more

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sorbet

I keep seeing things all over the interwebs about the end of summer. Um…I’m not buying it. This happens to me pretty much every year ....more

Mini Mocha Layer Cake

One of the best things about my wedding was seeing family members that I hadn’t seen in years. My family is spread out all over the world, and they came from California, Canada, Australia, and India among other places. My grandmother’s 89th birthday just so happened to be two days after my wedding, and with so many family members still around, I had the perfect reason to bake a great big chocolate cake ....more

We Got Married!

Hello, my cake loving friends! It’s been a looong time since I’ve posted on here. This is probably the longest I’ve ever been away from my blog, but I promise I’ve had good reason ....more

Purple Ombre Layer Cake

Baker friends, do you make your own special occasion cakes? I always make my own birthday cake as well as the birthday cakes of every nearby family member, but I have been forbidden to make my own wedding cake. You would think that this would be a relief (and it is, especially with the wedding right around the corner), but it’s just so hard to give up control sometimes ....more

Lemon Berry Angel Food Cupcakes

My wedding is 2 weeks from tomorrow. Wow, that snuck up on me so fast! I’m just now realizing how behind I am on everything ....more
