I have been trying new recipes at home on my family recently, and my family has tried each of them. They have tried the successes and the failures. I recently have been trying to perfect an apple cider cake recipe. It hasn’t worked yet, but I am almost there. I think. However, when I was testing out my apple cider cake recipe I came up with a apple compote recipe to fill the cake with that my family loves. So, the story is that some success are unexpected. I didn’t plan on making an apple compote filler for my cakes, but I did create a pretty successful recipe if I say so myself.
I came across these cute vegan ghost cupcakes on Pinterest. I was in love with the simple cartoon cute decorations. I am not the biggest vegan baked goods fan, so I didn’t use the blogger’s recipe. I decided to use my own recipes to recreate my homage to the cute ghost cupcakes that caught my attention.
The only down side to a German Chocolate Cake is that the thick chunky icing doesn’t allow you to create the beautiful cake trends that you see online. I have come up with the solution for decorating a cake with chunky icing. My solution is very simple and anyone can do it.
If you are looking up cake decorating videos and tips, you will come across this magically product called Fondant. You can make figures and shapes to top your cake or cover the tops of them. It gives you clean finishes that can make you look like a professional. I personally have never worked with the stuff until this recipe. Wish me luck!
I love caramel. It goes perfectly with apples, chocolate, coconut, or really any sweet. So I have been looking for an easy caramel frosting recipe for my celebration cakes. I recently tried the Caramel Frosting recipe from King Arthur Flour’s cookbook. The closest I have found their site to the recipe is the frosting from this post.
When I make Buttercream Frosting for my cakes, I want it to be light and fluffy. It can’t be too sweet or would make the cake overly sweet. There is perfect happy medium that needs to be obtained when it comes to the perfect buttercream. I think I have found a fool proof recipe that anyone can use.
Over Instagram and Pinterest, you can find hundreds of cakes decorated with the trendy chocolate drip. The drip can be any color or made from either dark or white chocolate. I decided to try my hand at this trendy decoration with a birthday cake I made recently. I went with a dark chocolate drip and used this blog post to help create it.
