It’s All In The Family

So it’s been awhile. Apologies. I have reason for that, it was great week of visiting family, baking jobs, and holiday hustle and bustle. Of course there were more cupcakes to be made, which I will discuss later in my posts on Kat Rohrbacher, the artist I worked with for her thesis

Kat’s Cupcakes

So I know I told everyone I would report back on the cupcakes I’m making for Kat Rohrbacher’s thesis project in her graduate program for art school. Here’s an update to that. We met today for our “cupcake transaction”. She is a very sweet girl and I wish her all the best

Gingerbread Scones

These delicious scones can be whipped up with a few pulses in the food processor in minutes. As they bake, your kitchen will fill with the scents of Christmas- cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. You may wish to reduce the amount of spices and molasses, as they are a bit spicy and younger

Christmas Red Velvet Cupcakes with Mascarpone Cream Cheese Frosting

I didn’t think I would do this, but being in a generous mood with the approaching holiday, I have decided to share my coveted Red Velvet Cupcakes recipe. Red velvet is my favorite type of cake- it is in its own category of cake and taste. It has a hint of cocoa in

Let’s Make a Date Muffins

These are one of the muffins I made this past weekend when we had company in town. They bake up nice and high and have a beautiful streusel topping. The dates are made into a puree so there are no date pieces in these, although you could always process the dates less

The Beautiful Web of Food

Earlier this week, something very cool happened. I was contacted by Kat Rohrbacher, an artist from Baltimore who is originally from Fort Wayne. She is working on her thesis project for graduate school and wants to use my cupcakes in her paintings! We chatted for a long time last night about her

More Sweet Stuff…Sugar Cookies, Cookie Decorating, & Hot Chocolate

I had a baking disaster yesterday. I was looking forward to trying out a new recipe for Caramel Sea Salt Truffles because I thought that salty-chocolate combination would be quite tasty . And they would be the perfect gift for sticking in holiday packages. The problem is, I am caramel challenged. Try as

Breakfast Today? Christmas Cookies.

A bit overdue, perhaps, but our mini marathon of Christmas cookie baking took place yesterday. Originally my Mom and I had planned on baking early in the day, but it was snowing and we decided to get some errands done first. We ended up making four different types, two old and two new

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

My little brother has been asking me to make these, and while I have several more unusual and distinctive Christmas cookies to blog about, I’ll go ahead and post this recipe. It is a simple Christmas cookie staple. Another crinkle cookie, these are low-maintenance and beautiful from the contrasting white and brown that happens
