Easy Paw Patrol Cake, A Rocket ship!!!

I loved making this cake for my little Superboy. Superboy turned 5 and just like ALL OTHER HUMANS of age 5 and under, saying he adores Paw Patrol would be an understatement. Well, I wanted to make him happy by making him a homemade paw patrol cake, because homemade is how I roll. But let's be honest, I was not in the mood to make anything complicated like my damn Elmo Cake. So, how does one do this? Use the colours of Paw Patrol and create anything. Do they have a rocket ship on the show? I don't think so but it doesn't matter because I made one in the colours of Paw Patrol. Genuis. And making a rocket? Looks super impressive, and it's super easy, well, my idea of easy...

The BEST damn guacamole you`ll ever eat after you (fill in the blank).

Welcome to Aurora Suzanne.

This is how we're gonna roll from now on. Read below to see what I mean.

So I read somewhere online about the life of an avocado: hard, hard, eat now!, done, too late!!!!. 

These little fickle suckers are my fave, I buy 2 bags of them per week and easily go through two batches of fresh homemade guacamole per week. I love these guys. And yes, I'm eating some as I write this. And yes, guacamole recipes are a dime per dozen. There's approximately a gazillion recipes online as we speak and probably 500 recipes being pumped out each day. So what makes mine so special you ask? Well, you can get a guacamole recipe anywhere, but can you also get a great story with it? Can you?

I'm sitting in the sun, watching the kiddos play while I type and eat my guack. But my day didn't start with fresh guacamole and sunshine. No it did not.

It started with sweat. Cold sweat. And fear.

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!
