Sometimes I’m old and anti-internet, and then sometimes I AM COMPLETELY CHARMED by something as ridiculously cute as this frog cake from Oracle Bakery. There is something so gentle and sweet about two plump dollops of green buttercream dressed up as froggy buddies, just chilling on a mushroom-festooned cake. It’s definitely got a “don’t worry, […]
May the Schwartz be with you! Pizza the Hutt cake looks kinda gnarly, I know. But he’s made of vanilla cake, vanilla buttercream and white chocolate drips to emulate oozing cheese. To make Pizza the Hutt, I used two 6 x 3 inch round cake pans and my “sportsball” pan that I’ve used a zillion […]

Comfort me with snacking cakes. Even better – comfort me with this salty caramel peanut butter snacking cake! When I first saw mention of Yossy’s latest brilliant book Snacking Cakes, I just knew it would be the emotional eating tome of Covid 19. I think we all knew we loved snacking cakes but we didn’t […]

How’s your year going? Yeah. I hear ya. I don’t think I’ve been the only one in a braindead, uncreative funk. What, with a pandemic to worry about and all. BUT – December 2020!

Vegan fried chicken recipe!? On a cake blog? Sure.
SHEEEEEET CAKEEEEEE! The ultimate crowd pleaser at a family reunion, 100 guest-list birthday party, high school graduation, etc… often procured from megastores and supermarkets, frosted hastily by power-professionals churning them out by the icing-from-a-bucket dozen. Except this one is a perfectly cute little square, topped with a garden of buttercream roses, made on a very […]

What is your favourite bubble tea? We very recently put on masks and scarily hit up THE MALL to get bubble tea at Chatime with Teddy’s cousins. Everything with Horrible Covid feels terrifying until you do it. The first time I went grocery shopping in March, I had so much anxiety. Now, wearing masks in […]
