Every time I make a cake, even a relatively small one, there are always leftovers.  There are the trimmings from leveling the layers, there is extra frosting and then there is just plain leftover cake.  No matter how delicious, moist and wonderful a cake is after a while it gets old. Maybe you’re just getting …
We are celebrating the Little Prince’s second birthday this week (or as he so charmingly states “‘Appy birfy-day now peez!”) which means a busy time of gift buying and wrapping, party planning and prepping and, of course, cake baking. Last year I took the plunge and created my very first solo birthday cake.  As I …
This week we can thank Lynne of Honey Muffin for choosing Double Apple Bundt Cake (pages 184 and 185). I may have mentioned before (in fact I’m pretty certain I have) that the only fruit I really like in a dessert is apples so I was pretty excited to give this cake a try. Since I …
I mentioned in one of my TWD posts that I had made a special cake for “the Little Prince’s” first birthday celebration and promised pictures.  It is now a couple weeks after the fact, but I am very proud of my very first birthday cake effort so I still wanted to share. I actually had …
This week Sabrina of Superfluous chose Cranberry Upside-Downer on page 206 of Dorie’s book.  Now, I’m not entirely sure how this could have happened, but it seems that this may be my very first upside down cake.  At least I can’t recall having made any variety of upside down cake before. I still have cookies …
This week’s TWD challenge was selected by Amy of Amy Ruth Bakes. She made the excellent choice of Dressy Chocolate Loafcake on pages 286 and 287.  There are just so many things to love about this recipe; chocolate (of course), ease of preparation, and size to name a few. I wasn’t exactly thrilled by the …
I have a TWD double header going on this week.  I really did make last week’s Dulce de Leche Duos and was all prepared to post about them on Tuesday but instead I had the pleasure of dealing with a broken refrigerator (which didn’t get fixed until the next morning anyway).  After that I just …
Welcome to this week’s installment of TWD !  This makes 3 weeks in a row for me (after my somewhat unexpected month long absence); which might just mean I’m back on track again.  Of course, it is pretty easy for me to stay on track when my fellow bakers seem to be on a chocolate …
The final recipe for this month (for me anyway) is Chocolate Caramel Chestnut Cake chosen by Katya of Second Dinner.  I decided to take advantage of the leniency in the TWD posting rules for this month, and this week in particular, so that I could have this beautiful cake on my Thanksgiving menu. I very …
Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of “Prince Charming’s” and my marriage.  One year ago we, or rather my mother since we were off celebrating our wedding night, carefully packed the top tier of our wedding cake away in the freezer to await our first anniversary.  Why did we do this?  Did we really want …
