Chocolate Cake and Cheesecake

Three layers of deliciousness. Devil's Food Cake and Ricotta Cheesecake with Vanilla Bean buttercream. from #dietersdownfall.com

Devil’s Food Cake with Ricotta Cheesecake and Vanilla Bean Buttercream This was a totally decadent dessert! A three layer cake with a layer of Cheesecake in the middle, has got to be one of the most calorie dense desserts that I’ve made so far here. If Cheesecake Factory doesn’t already have something like this, they […]

Chocolate Cake with Cheesecake Center – Day two – Vanilla Bean Buttercream I am getting good at making traditional buttercream frosting with whole eggs.

Seven Minute Frosting

Seven Minute Frosting - Better than seven minutes in heaven! from #dietersdownfall.com

Marshmallow Roulade – Day Two – Seven Minute Frosting I have a love/hate relationship with seven minute frosting. I LOVE to eat it, and I hate to make it… You see, previously when I’ve made it, the frosting turned out gritty because the sugar didn’t completely dissolve while I was making it. It turns out […]

Homemade Marshmallows

Marshmallow Roulade – Day One – Homemade Marshmallows I have a confession to make. I have had homemade marshmallows on my bucket list for at least 3 years! I finally decided to conquer my fear and just go for it! This week marks my 1 year blog birthday here at Dieter’s Downfall, so I wanted […]

Carrot Cake with Macarons

Orange and Ginger infused Carrot Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting with Bunny Macarons I loved this cake! Loved. I usually don’t say that about carrot cake, but I loved all the flavor that was in it! The Orange and Ginger added a wonderful taste to the carrot cake. My frosting was a little finicky, […]
