It’s been a bit of a quiet week on the baking front, so I just have a short post today. I thought it would be fun to go back and talk about a cake and cookies that I made a few weeks ago. I’ve put an asterisk on the dairy-free part of this post, because… Read More Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free*, and Sugar-Free
Hello everyone! I hope you all had an amazing holiday. Unfortunately, I was sick (for Christmas and New Years), so I’m not sure mine was quite as amazing as it could have been, but it was still great to spend lots of time with family.

One of these projects was a cake and cupcake order, and the second was a batch of sugar cookies made just for fun (because I love decorating cookies, and I love seeing how my skills improve every time). For the first of these projects, I made a… Read More Thanksgiving Treats!

A two-for-one deal. These are both cakes I made in the last two weeks, and they represent my first attempts… Read More Fondant Covered Cakes
My dad is turning 60 today, so I wanted to make a fancy cake for his birthday. I chose a 6″ cake, but I made it a four layer cake. For my previous four-layer cakes, I’ve actually just cut two layers in half to make the four layers, but I decided I wanted to try… Read More 60th Birthday Cake
