Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo Overload Ice Cream Cake

Everybody likes cake, but everyone LOVES ice cream cake, especially when you pull out all the stops with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo Overload Ice Cream Cake. That name is kind of like “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” but more mouth-watering to say. I know it looks like a masterpiece too fancy to be made anywhere other than a bakery, […]

Super Simple Lemon Icebox Cake

I love making custom cakes for my friends’ birthdays, but sometimes life requires something simpler like a No-Bake Super Simple Lemon Icebox Cake. My good friend’s birthday is this week, and I had elaborate plans for a decorative cake, but I wound up getting sick during the week. Even though I was feeling better over […]

No-Bake Double Chocolate Eclair Cake

Play pretend-pastry chef for a day with this no-bake Double Chocolate Eclair Cake. To me, a good bakery’s pastry case is like an actual wonderland in this bleak real word. It gives me the feeling I always imagined I’d have as a kid if I could hop into the board game Candy Land and stroll […]

Double Chocolate Confetti Cupcakes

When my old computer unexpectedly decided to kick the bucket, I consulted a few IT experts I knew in the hopes of recovering my hard drive’s contents. The guy who ended up assisting me was very helpful, and we were able to get everything off my hard drive just before it gave out on me […]

Red, White, and Blue Cupcake Cake

I have waited an entire year to share this cake with you. Really, I made this almost one year ago for Mother Cookie’s birthday, which is on the 4th of July. I desperately wanted to share its cuteness and patriotic-ness with you ASAP, but I couldn’t share it with you before the 4th of July since […]

Spider-Man Cake

Princess Graduation Cake

I graduated in December, so I thought I had been done with college for many months. However, I got a phone call a month or so ago asking me to return to the school to discuss academic honors. Well, what do you know, this Smart Cookie was named salutatorian for the class of 2015, and […]

Corgi Cake

The springtime is speckled by birthday after birthday by the friends and family in my life: my sister, my father, many friends, and my boyfriend, just to name a few. It has become a thing for me to make personalized cakes as gifts, but it isn’t easy coming up with the perfect design. When my […]

The Weekender: Pajamas, Furry Friends, & Birthdays

Thank you for being patient with me the last week while posts were a little spotty. I was dealing with a death in the family, which happens to send your everyday life into chaos – as if such a time isn’t hard enough as is. But like I promised, I am getting back into our […]

Easter Lamb Cake

They say “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb,” but we experienced the ferocity of a lion both entering and leaving March this year. I’m clinging to hope that things will shape up in April, but judging by the forecast for this weekend, I may have to wait a bit […]
