How To Tuesday: Petal To The Metal.
This entry was posted in Cakes, How To Tuesday and tagged Chocolate, Frosting, Icing, Orange, Petal on February 26, 2013.

You know that picture in your head, the impossibly perfect one? You see it when you're imagining how that royal icing flood will turn out. You see it in the back of your mind when attempting a side dutch braid. You see it clearly when you're trying to match that DIY project you saw on...

Wordsmith.

I'm a huge fan of the written word. I love reading it, I love writing it and, above all, I love learning more about it. I'm one of those people that, when encountering a new word in a book, I immediately look up the definition. I can't read on without it. It's like stepping out...

My Mind Lets Go A Thousand Things.
This entry was posted in Cakes and tagged Chocolate, Ganache, Glaze, Raspberry, Recipe, Semisweet Chocolate on February 14, 2013.

I've always been fascinated by the things our mind chooses to remember and the things it chooses to forget. I can't remember learning to whistle, but I can vividly remember that time in fifth grade when Justin Kennedy flashed one of his perfect smiles at me. That terrible haircut I got to impress him thankfully...

Death By Chocolate And The Birth Of A Blog.

Three years. I can't believe it's really been three years. Three years ago today I timidly introduced myself and stepped into the blogosphere. I baked cookies, snapped some photos, met you fine folks, wrote about life and wrote about love, laughed, learned, grew. I want to say thank you for being so patient with me....

Pink.
This entry was posted in Cakes, Desserts and tagged Mousse, Recipe, Strawberry, Vanilla, Vanilla Bean, Whipped Cream on October 24, 2012.

October is a month that's all about welcoming Fall. Baking pies and roasting turkeys for Thanksgiving. Raking leaves into neat piles, jumping in them and raking them all over again. Stringing up cobwebs, carving jack-o-lanterns and donning your creepiest costume for Halloween. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month and and that's a fact we...

Berry Good.
This entry was posted in Cakes and tagged Blueberry, Bundt, Lemon, Mini, Raspberry, Recipe, Strawberry on September 16, 2012.

Meet Berrie. He's spunky, inquisitive, adventurous, incredibly smart, a little grumpy, a bit spoiled and definitely adorable. He enjoys mirrors, seed balls, messy baths, nomming on computer keys, hanging out on noggins and chirping at cats. He's a cute little lovebird we recently had the pleasure of bird-sitting. Berrie was named after the colourful fruit...

Refined Sugar.
This entry was posted in Cakes and tagged Banana, Bread, Cinnamon, Maple, Recipe, Syrup on March 9, 2012.

I'm busy preparing for a takeover sleepover this weekend so I'll have to keep this brief. As if three preteen girls need any help in the hyperactive department, I decided I would be a swell idea to feed them at least three different kinds of sugar with this Maple Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread. Granulated sugar,...

Another Year Of Pink, Pretty, Play.
This entry was posted in Cakes and tagged Chocolate, Ganache, Ombre, Recipe, Strawberry, Vanilla Bean, White Chocolate on February 11, 2012.

Today is a very special day! Today Hot Polka Dot turns two and yours truly turns twenty-six. To mark the occasion I have precisely twenty-six grey hairs sprouting from my right temple. I also had two pieces of this impressive specimen of pink sweetness. I thought long and hard about what sort of cake to...

These Aren’t The Droids You’re Looking For.

Mind over matter. Power of suggestion. The force. Whatever you want to call it, that's what I've been wrestling with for the past week. Everyone around me is aching and couching and sneezing. The odds are kind of stacked against me here. I'd have to be some sort of guru of meditation with a fistful...

Bloomin’ Cake.

Today you can find me over on The White Library. I made a super pretty super tasty Chocolate Covered Almond Cake for Sandra and her beautiful blog. It seemed only fair after she revealed her secrets to designing the perfect dessert table. If you didn't visit The White Library yesterday then make sure to stop...
