Sweet Saturday: Cheesecake Bakes


Hello all! I don’t know about you, but I had SUCH a sweet Saturday. I got to do some of the things I love most: spend time with sweet, sweet friends, shop and lunch at Whole Foods, work out in the yard, and lounge around watching girly movies. What made your Saturday Sweet?

I wanted to share the latest of my baking escapades thanks to 500 Cupcakes: Cheesecake Bakes. These turned out delicious! Perfect for a spring time treat.

Next week is going to be extra sweet for me. I’m trying a new cupcake recipe AND making two cakes. Stay tuned!

Sweet Saturday: Hummingbird Cupcakes with Marmalade Icing


Man, it’s hard to have a sweet Saturday when projects and deadlines loom about me. Luckily, cupcakes exist. Cupcakes are SWEET. Cupcakes are FRILLING.

Today I made Hummingbird Cupcakes with Marmalade Icing. Mmm, Mmm. I got the recipe from 500 Cupcakes, a bakebook Fran gave me years ago. I plan on trying lots of new recipes in the coming weeks. 

The Hummingbird Cake is a delish concoction of orange zest, banana, pineapple, coconut, and carrot. Jealous yet? These turned out absolutely lovely. The cake tasted almost muffin-like (not too sweet), and the icing turned out thin, almost like a glaze. 

What made your Saturday sweet?

Sweet Saturday


It’s been a sweet, sweet Saturday in my house today. I can’t tell you how much it absolutely FRILLS me to bake. And today I had such fun making lovely things and sharing them with lovely people. Check it out:

My husband was FRILLED to have banana nut bread and blueberries waiting for him for breakfast this morning. 

Recently, my neighbor opened my eyes to the THRILLS of Angel Food Cake with pineapple baked in. It was such a sweet Saturday, you see. I just HAD to try it.

I even went all out and whipped up a traditional yellow cake with chocolate icing for a birthday party. I didn’t get to try it, but I’m hoping it was deliciously FRILLING.
