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

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 […]

I have seen these little sphere cakes before but I didn’t know what to call them. After a bit of research I found out that they are called bauble cakes.
