Fabulously Sweet

A Dash of This & A Pinch of That

Sometimes I wonder what life would be like if all food came on a stick? Wouldn’t it be easier to devour and definitely easier clean-up. These are just a few thoughts that came to mind when I first heard of the ‘Cake-Pop’. Now I know it’s been around for awhile, even Starbucks got in on the venture. There are even cake pop machines! But to my understanding, they aren’t the same as the original cake pop creation, which if you […]

CoconutCake

Where do I begin. I had been contemplating what kind of cake to make for an upcoming Birthday. I definitely wanted a cake that incorporated fruit. First I thought of a lemon cake with rasberry filling and light whipped cream frosting, a strawberry cake with fresh strawberries…then I stumbled onto the thought of, dare I say it, Coconut. That oh-so-lovely, transports-you-to-the-beach, fruit. It’s a coconut, upon coconut, upon coconut of a cake. Luckily I already had most of the ingredients […]

Happy Martin Luther King Day! And it was a ‘happy’ day for me, I got to bake all day. Yay! It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve baked anything and today I decided to go crazy. First I made home-made whipped cream. I honestly kind of had to; the heavy cream I had was about to expire in a couple days, so what better than to use it for a light and fluffy whipped cream. You can eat it plain, […]

It’s that time of year again…the holidays are upon us and when Starbucks rolls out their ‘red’ cups, that is when I begin my holiday planning! Department stores begin playing ‘Jingle bells…’, Santa’s helpers stand on corners, ringing bells and sweet yummy smells start to drift out of my kitchen. This is the time when you don’t worry about fitting into that ‘yellow-polka-dot’ bikini, when you can eat and ‘should’ eat all the scrumptious o’rdeuarvs at holiday parties, cookies and […]

While out grocery shopping the other day, I found they had blackberries on sale for 70¢ each! So of course I bought 7 cartons. I figured I would probably eat at least case while baking with the others. Not sure what I was going to make with them, but I knew whatever I made would be scrumptious. In trying to decide what flavor of cake to make I decided on a white chocolate cupcake. My first instinct was a dark […]

Wow, is all I can say. The goodness of a PB&J sandwich in a small delicate-delicious cupcake, is in my opinion, a masterpiece of baking. Anyone who enjoys a unique cupcake needs to make this at least once in their lifetime. I talked up this particular recipe at work, preparing my co-workersr for a scrumptious treat on Monday morning. They were all looking forward to it, and I have to say, it didn’t disappoint! I only wish I would have doubled […]

Saturday, November 5, 2011 Where do I begin…I have been contemplating a baking blog for quite some time and finally got the inspiration to start one. So today, I decided to start by making a basic vanilla cupcake with a butter cream frosting, that at the last minute turned into a ‘coconut’ butter cream frosting. Now I was excited about the ‘from-scratch’ batter, since I usually go the quick ‘box’ route. The batter turned out a little runny, so fingers […]
