Ghost Cupcakes: Boo-licious!

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.

Pastry Love: Not Your Mama’s Bakes

Flour is one of the top bakeries in the United States and the head baker, Joanne Chang, is a genius. Her understanding of flour and sugar leads her able to have inventive bakes that you can’t find any where else. If you don’t live near Flour like me, never fear there is one way to try her goods without stepping foot inside her bakery. I recently purchased her latest cookbook, Pastry Love. Pastry Love is filled with recipes from the bakery and a few of her personal favorites. 

La Casita Bakeshop: Masters of the Puff

Tucked away in a strip mall in Richardson, there is a bakery that has delicious creations. Creations come in different forms of pastry dough such as puff and normal dough. The treats are flavored with both savory and sweet tasting that can satisfy any palate. This magical shop is called La Casita Bakeshop, and you can only get treats on certain days and times.

How to Decorate A German Chocolate Cake

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.

Cake and Cream Puffs from The Cake Boss

We have seen him on TV. Seen photos of his amazing creations online. I never thought I would get a chance to see his creations in person. Then, I recently been gifted the book Cake Boss: Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia by Buddy Valastro.

Marshmallow Fondant: Hell or Saving Grace?

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!

Spring is in the air, and that means all the citrus flavors start appearing in my bakes. This Easter I tested the Honey Lemon Cake from King Arthur Flour as cupcakes. ‘Cause you all know that I love the recipes from King Arthur Flour.

Red Caramel Frosting: Anyone can do it!

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.

Apple Cake: An Apple A Day

As the saying goes, an apple a day is suppose to keep the doctor a day. So why not take that apple and make it into a cake or a series of cupcakes. I turned to my trusty cookbook from King Arthur Flour to try out their single bowl Apple Cake recipe (not featured on their site).

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.
