Coconut Cake

Coconut Cake

I've gotten used to my afternoon slice of cake with a cup of tea. I'm not sure I will attempt to make another cake for a while. I'd like to remember this one for just a bit longer. The moist coconut cake layers in between sweet velvety buttercream frosting, sprinkled with fresh sweet shredded coconut.

Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Muffins with Maple Cream Cheese Icing

Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Muffins with Maple Cream Cheese Icing

This recipe has been tested and tweaked a few times over the years, and each year I can't decide on whether I am calling it a cupcake or a muffin. Brent thinks that it is a cupcake because it has icing. I agree, but I also feel that its much more like a muffin in taste and texture.

I've made this recipe with both dark and milk chocolate. Each is unique in flavor, and really, it's up to you to choose your favorite. Once you've rolled out the dough into a tight tube, and carefully sliced it into perfectly beautiful rounds, your natural instinct is going to be to place them neatly and tightly into a large pan, where they can rise and puff into each other.

Rainbow Birthday Cake

Rainbow Birthday Cake

This cake was some serious eye candy. A major flavor explosion for your eyes. In order to pull this magic together, I used a classic vanilla butter cake recipe with a vanilla buttercream frosting. The cake was sweet, perfect for a child's birthday party or a husband's surprise Mexican themed party. It was a fluffy, moist, melt-in-the-mouth kind of cake. If I had to sum it up, I would say it tasted like a rainbow is supposed to taste.
