Slow-motion chocolate licking. It's that good.

Thought chocolate was as good as it gets? Try it with cracked black pepper, then you'll know chocolate can get even better

Easy and Beautiful Tinkerbell Cake


 
 Okay Babes, I've super BADLY neglected this blog. I just wasn't feeling it and just as I'm starting a new blog/website project, I've decided to check in on this one. I feel instantly re-connected and I can't wait to share with you baking projects that I've done over the year. I want to start with my girl's 4th birthday party. This Tinkerbell cake was super easy to make, in fact, this cake was the easiest to make yet and it looks fabulous, if I may say so!

Complete Protein Raspberry Muffins (Maximum-Plant-Protein) *Gluten Free and Dairy Free*






    Finally, this muffin recipe has been a long work in progress so I'm thrilled to unveil it! This is a COMPLETE PROTEIN muffin folks, not just high protein but a complete one. Many of us are misguided when it comes to protein. Some of us think that only meat provides us with the protein we need but this is untrue. It is true that meat gives us the most protein in one sitting, but it's not necessarily our only options. I've come to realize that I'm a protein-per-meal kinda girl, you know, like those Paleo folks, without the quack theory behind it. Yep, I think it's a quack diet, philosophically, but I do agree that proteins are essential, and are so at every meal. But here's the thing, I'm not going to consume animal flesh at every meal, how sustainable is that? We're not here to eat the planet out of all of the animal, can you imagine if everyone ate meat at every meal? That would kill all of the animals pretty quickly.

Ladybugs and Strawberries, It's a Birthday Party!


I love making birthday cakes! Correction- I love decorating birthday cakes. Baking is not so much fun, but decorating makes my blood come alive. This cake took me about four hours to decorate, mind you I do take my time! It's great to have a plan for each layer but do just go with the flow because it never will end up how you planned it.
For instance, I did not plan on making pink rosettes to frame the bottom of the cake, I did this to hide the big gap between the green icing and the cake from the plastic wrap that I had placed on the cake stand to protect it from getting too messy. You have to improvise when you're an amature.
Here are the steps to making a three layered birthday cake:

Butterfly Cake Decor on Lemony Hell Cake


Decorative Cake Decor on Lemony Hell Cake

I call this the lemony hell cake only because it was pure hell trying to make a lemon flavoured italian meringue buttercream. I will probably not make this icing again, but aside from this, this cake was fun to make!

Lucky Vanilla Cake and a First birthday Party (Gluten-Free)



I promised myself I would make birthday cakes much simpler ever since my Elmo cake saga. Though this experience was simpler, it still was A LOT of work. But I keep learning and every time I make a new creative cake, I learn ways to make it easier for the next time. This time around, I finally made a cake frosting I can be proud of, a sugar-free birthday cake buttercream frosting!! The icing you see here, in this picture is completely sugar free. It's made with honey and stevia and NO, it does not taste like bitter stevia nor does it taste like the distinct honey taste. It's sweet and smooth, just like your ordinary American buttercream frosting. I also finally, after a year of trial and error, nailed my gluten free vanilla cake. So, this post is special. Two special recipes to share with you. Although I might post my buttercream frosting recipe in a couple of weeks when I have more time to show you more examples of what it can do.

Gluten Free Cheesecake and Chocolate Cake Pops for a Wedding


I made these cake pops for a wedding. It was my first large-scale cake pop making so I was a bit nervous, but I'm so glad I did it. The experience was worth it all.

It was a crazy Sunday when I was thinking up crazy schemes. This particular Sunday I decided that making cake pops as a side business would be a great idea. I then thought of the wedding I was going to a month later and what gift I would get. I put those thoughts together and out came my idea. Make cake pops for their wedding! It would give me experience making a lot of cake pops for someone else and it would be a nice gift since I knew they would appreciate gluten free cake pops. To my lucky surprise, the bride went for it! Ask, and you shall receive I tell you! 100 cake pops, here I come!
