Star Wars Mini Doughnuts – Part II: Leia, Yoda & Chewbacca

The other day I was watching my favorite movie of all time, “When Harry Met Sally” but something was off about it. I couldn’t put my finger on what it was that was bothering me until I realized it was Billy Crystal’s voice. Billy Crystal who is a main character in the movie, also voices […]

Star Wars Mini Doughnuts – Part I: Stormtroopers & Ewoks

Well it’s here, Star Wars Day! Every year I try to make some sort of Star Wars themed food to celebrate Star Wars Day. In case you didn’t know, it’s on May 4th because it plays on the phrase, “May the force be with you”. Get it? Like “May the Fourth be with you?” What […]

Weekday Update

It’s been a quiet few weeks on the busy spatula. Mostly, I’ve been busy filling cake orders and baking here and there. Not enough photos to write an actual blog about, but just enough for a glimpse of what’s been going on. (If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw some of these already.) […]

Red Velvet Rose Pavlova

As much as I love flowers, I’ve learned over the years that I have a black thumb. No matter how hard I try or how “low-maintenance” the plant is, I manage to kill it. I’ve even killed a cactus. Don’t ask me how I did it. But one day it started to shrivel up and […]

Tiramisu Cinnamon Rolls

If I bottled the scent that came out of the oven while this baked, I would be a millionaire. It smells as if your house was smack dab in the middle of a Starbucks and a Cinnabon store. Er.. kind of like a mall. (I suppose living in the mall would be a nightmare for […]

Green Tea White Chocolate Sugar Cookies

It’s December! I can’t believe that it’s already more than a week into December and Christmas is fast approaching. No, I haven’t done my holiday shopping yet but I can already envision the empty bank account as I think about the things I have to buy. But the Christmas tree is up and I’m glad […]

The Pink Cupcake (#10000cupcakes)

October is breast cancer awareness month! When I found out that KitchenAid is donating $1 to Susan G. Komen for every original picture of a cupcake baked and shared, I had to jump on board. Since pink is the color for breast cancer awareness, I decided to make the pinkest cupcake I can possibly make. With […]

The Ultimate Oreo Ice Cream Cake with Homemade Crunchies

I would say that whenever the topic of ice cream cakes come up, about 75% of the people I talk to gush about how much they love crunchies. You know, the crunchy chocolate crumbs that are usually sandwiched between the vanilla and chocolate ice cream layers in a standard store bought ice cream cake. So […]

Cereal Macarons with Cereal Milk Frosting

Cereal and I have a love/hate relationship. I love how there are endless flavors and textures, how each cereal turns plain milk into a unique drink, and how you can eat it for pretty much any meal or snack (and even when you run out of milk, you can eat it plain, kind of like […]
