Maple Cupcake With Maple Buttercream

These turned out amazingly well. When I asked BG where it ranked in comparison to the other two that everyone loves, she said it tied with the others. This is very high praise, since she compares almost every cake I make to either the pumpkin or the chocolate cream cheese.

It’s A Banana Bread (Muffin) Kinda Day

My family actually left me some bananas to work with again. I am stunned. And obviously in the mood to bake. I decided to do the mini-muffin version just for something different.

Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting

Just dropping in real quick while I take a moment before I dig back into this latest cake project. Like fondant, buttercream icing/frosting can be finicky. It took me a while to find a recipe that I like. Both to use and to eat. Similar to fondant, if your recipe uses shortening, you loose out… Continue reading Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake Pops

This is only the second time I've made this specific recipe, though I've played with cake balls for a while trying to get the ratios and chocolate correct. I know I've done something different as the first batch of these I ever did came out perfect, but this time, my outer chocolate layer never quite… Continue reading Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake Pops
