Orange Blueberry Lane Cake with Orange Cream Cheese frosting and Blueberry Walnut filling Oh this beautiful cake was amazing! I was flipping through a magazine and came across a Lane Cake recipe and wondered what the heck a Lane Cake was. Turns out it’s a favorite southern cake that is usually made with a bourbon […]

Rum Buttercream

Easy Rum Buttercream that is great on just about any cake. It's perfect for a spice cake! from #DietersDownfall

Spiced Cake – Day two – Rum Buttercream I love a good frosting recipe and I’m getting much more confident with buttercream. I’m still not sure if this is a Swiss Meringue buttercream, French meringue buttercream or an Italian buttercream. I think that they all taste great, and I don’t think it really matters. However, […]

Coconut Pudding

Coconut Pudding. Enjoy it as is or spread it between a layered cake. from #DietersDownfall

Triple Coconut Cake – Day Two – Coconut Pudding I love a good, homemade pudding. Taking the time to cook pudding on the stove top is just so soothing and the results are just so much better than the 5 minute mixes. Stove top method is also great because you know exactly what is going in […]

Giant Macaroons

Huge Macaroons ready to be gobbled up. Take them up a bit with drizzled chocolate. from #DietersDownfall

Triple Coconut Cake – Day One – Giant Macaroons This week I’m celebrating all things coconut! I hope you’re a fan of these tropical “nuts”. (Actually they aren’t nuts at all. They are actually stone fruit like peaches and plumbs. source.) Anyway, I love coconut in my treats – cookies, cakes, pies, popsicles and ice […]

Amaretti Cookies

Amaretti Cookies coated in powdered sugar, topped with a cherry or almond or served plain. from

Chocolate Zuccotto – Day One – Amaretti Cookies If you’re an Almond Lover, you’ll wanna make these easy Italian Almond Cookies. They are naturally Gluten Free and full of yummy almond flavor. To jazz them up, I rolled a few in powdered sugar, added a few Luxardo Maraschino Cherries to some and topped others with a whole almond. […]

Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake with Sugared Pepitas, Moravian Ginger Snaps, and Whipped Cream. I took that naked Pumpkin Cheesecake and dressed it up for a family dinner party. I added some candied pepitas, made some delicious whipped cream and use the extra Moravian Ginger Cookies to take this cheesecake to the decadent level! Adding these little […]

Strawberry Meringues

Simply Exquisite! Meringue shells, strawberry curd, crème fraîche, and fresh fruit.

Meringue Shells with Strawberry Rhubarb Curd, Homemade Crème Fraîche, and fresh Strawberries Mmmm! This dessert was amazing. It was a little difficult to eat, but it sure was good! I enjoyed it immensely! The crisp meringue was amazing, the sweet and tart combination of the Crème Fraîche and Strawberry curd was wonderful, and the fresh fruit was […]

Dig in to this Mint Chocolate Mousse Tart! from

Mint Chocolate Mousse Tart with Chocolate Cookie Crust and Chocolate Martini’s Let me just say this… YUM! Oh my gosh, was this dessert GOOD!! From the cookie crust filled with bittersweet chocolate mint mousse and the chocolate martini to wash it down, it was fan-frickin-tabulous! I totally loved everything about this dessert. For me personally, […]

Seven Minute Frosting

Seven Minute Frosting - Better than seven minutes in heaven! from

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 […]

Lemon Sponge Cake

White Sponge Cake with a hint of Lemon mixed in. Recipe makes 3 layers. from

Raspberry Lemon Cake – Day Two – Lemon Sponge Cake I’d like to discuss something new to me. Something that, until recently, I didn’t think I really needed. Just a small baking accessory that I thought for sure was a gimmick. Well, take a look at the photo below and let me know which cake […]
