Bubble Gum Frosting Cupcakes with Gelatin Bubbles
Let's not take things too seriously today. Instead, let's make cupcakes with bubble gum frosting and use way too many sprinkles. Let's be crafty and make gelatin bubble toppers, too. It's easy and I'll show you how! I first saw the gelatin bubble technique weeks ago on Cake Central , and I've been
Italian Easter Bread
This may be the happiest-looking bread I've ever made. Sprinkles on bread? Yes times one million! I've had Italian Easter Bread on my bake list for ages, but each year the holiday seems to pass by too quickly, or I just plain forgot about it. So, late this past Monday night, I decided to drop ...
Christian Dior's Apricot Mousse
As much as I love shiny new cookbooks (and oh, I do!) my shelf of mid-century cookbooks is my sentimental favorite. I especially love those purchased second-hand with notes and recipe clippings tucked in the pages. I’ll admit, reading through the oddball "Tuna Surprise" and congealed salad recipes

Sriracha-Orange Marmalade Marshmallows
I hope by now you are all well acquainted with the condiment known as Sriracha, but for those who aren't familiar, it's a delicious chili sauce that is sweet, hot and boasts a showy bright red-orange color. If you don't have a bottle in your fridge, you should probably go out and buy some right
Chocolate Celebration Cake for 100
How often do you get to make a 90th birthday cake? Not often enough, I'm sure. When I found out this milestone was on the horizon for our own sweet grand-lady, I didn't wait around for anyone to ask me - I offered my cake bakery services immediately! March 9th was the special day we honored Ms. ...
Special Delivery! Mendl's Shortdough Cookies
Today is the opening of Wes Anderson's new film The Grand Budapest Hotel , and I am SO excited to go see it! I've always loved his work - the strong visuals and nostalgia - it's like seeing fairytale illustrations come to life on the big screen. This new movie holds an extra ounce of delight for me
