By Whitney Stewart, Senior Editor for What says sunshine and warm weather more than lemon? Here’s one of those incredible cakes that makes the sugar statement every party needs. You can introduce it complete or make the final assembly part of the show…that’s what I did when I made this at Easter. A couple […]

I first tried this cake at Ikea, of all places. Who would have guessed that a furniture store would make and sell such a delicious little pastry. Not only was it beautiful in presentation but I was also very delicate and tasty

This week I was asked to come up with some fun cookies for a gals Bunco game night. All I know about Bunco is it involves dice and it is super fun. Oh, I also have read that if you add a few martinis to the mix it is even more fun! Maybe I will […]

One of my all time favorite restaurants is Red Stone Grill. One of the best things on their menu (besides everything) is their Chocolate chip cookie dessert. I know, I know…it’s a cookie.

One of my favorite things about cake decorating is how many different styles are out there and how creative people can be with their cakes. I love getting inspired by the talents of others. It makes me want to dive right in and continue to experiment and expand my knowledge of cake decorating. Lately, I […]

So, I’ve been on a bit of a kick with these bauble cakes. I ended up making too many and in order to not let them go to waste I decided to experiment with decorating them and see where I got. I’m not as satisfied with this one as I am with the others, but […]
