Pastel Layer Cake and a Blog Birthday!
Sprinkle Bakes just turned 5 years old! When I look back at all the sweet things I've made - the cakes, the friends, the memories -I feel truly blessed. This little corner of the web has brought me more happiness than I ever dreamed possible, and I appreciate everyone who stops by for a peek at ...
Rainbow Meringue Truffle Cones
I've had my serious hat on for a couple of weeks now, mostly due to deadlines and commitments. I believe that's partly how these rainbow meringue cones came about. I just couldn't take one more day with a furrowed brow. And do you know that rainbow treats are the opposite of a furrowed brow? They
Gentlemen's Chocolate Whiskey Cake
According to The Chocolate Bible , a Gentlemen's Torte is a many-layered Sachertorte that is soaked with booze. Other books on the subject say that almost any cake could be called a Gentlemen's Torte if it is doused with enough whiskey. In fairness, I think this type of cake could also be called a
Black and White Wedding Cake
I'm not in the business of making wedding cakes, nor do I want to be, but I make exceptions for family and close friends. Clearly, there's a lot of pressure involved, and my hat goes off to anyone who chooses this as an occupation. Any cake that is served to a large group of people should always be
Breakfast in Bed with Homemade English Muffins (and Doughnut Muffins, too!)
Breakfast in bed is rarely served at my house, but that's something I'm trying to rectify. I know it's considered best if someone makes it for you, but I'm kind of a control freak when it comes to breakfast pastries and breads, so really, I don't mind doing the work. I decided to document my last
Magic Flan Cake
Life feels a little crazy right now because in two short months the manuscript for my second cookbook is due. As you can imagine, I've been spending all my time baking, testing, and washing loads of dishes. Most mornings I can be found in a quiet place, trying to connect my head and heart so I can
Crème Brûlée Filled Strawberries
Happy July, friends! This will be a month of celebrations and birthdays (including my own!) so I've been trying to think up new ideas for party food. One of my favorite desserts of all time is creme brulee, and with all the juicy ripe strawberries at the market right now I felt the two should get

Raspberry Rosé Cake for Better Homes and Gardens
Hi all! Today you can find me on the Better Homes and Gardens blog again, and this time I'm showing you how to make an easy celebration cake. R osé champagne is used to flavor fluffy white cake layers, and then they're filled and frosted with pretty pale blue vanilla bean frosting. Add some fresh
Chocolate Mojito Cupcakes
My third post for Better Homes and Gardens ' Month of Cakes is a refreshing take on grasshopper cupcakes. Fluffy whipped cream is flavored with mint, lime zest and rum to give rich chocolate cupcakes a Mojito-inspired topping. I love this frosting so much I've even piled it on top of an ice cream
