Flower Basket Cake

blogimage

So I mentioned I’ve been doing a lot of cakes lately and I wanted to share one of my favorites with you. This custom flower basket cake is a special cake I created for my mom on Mother’s Day. My mom is all about flowers and I wanted to make a cake that was full of them! Loads of pretty blooms in bright colors all parked in a little white basket has her name written all over it!

I know I’m usually all about the makeovers, adding my own personal spins and of course, zhushing desserts up, but today it’s all about a classic. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a fresh baked loaf of banana bread and this one takes the cake, pun totally intended :)

Pineapple Rum Upside-Down Cake

blogimage

Pineapple upside-down cake makes me smile! Isn’t it just a happy cake? It’s so retro and cute, and you know I had to zhush it up, right? Well, I put some rum on the guest list and this cake is now ready to party!

Now I have to tell you, while I’ve always liked pineapple upside-down cake, I wasn’t like the president of the pineapple upside-down fan club – until now! Because there is one ingredient in this cake that seals the deal, and I’m not even talking about the rum. Don’t get me wrong, the rum is good. I mean, rum is always good…

Beyond the Buttercream: Sprinkles & Things

blogimage

I’m changing things up today, guys. I have all this stuff that I want to share with you and it usually doesn’t fit into my dessert posts, so here it goes. “Beyond the Buttercream” will cover travel, restaurant reviews, what I’m loving, what I’m reading, probably cake, random life musings and just stuff, like sprinkles.
1. I’ve been doing a LOT of cakes lately like this one I did for my uncle’s wedding a few weeks ago home in NY. I have to tell you, I don’t think there will ever come a day that transporting a cake over 3 hours doesn’t give me epic amounts of anxiety. I transported this on Friday, the 13th in what went from monsoons to downpours the whole drive home. Dramatics aside, it arrived in one piece, they loved it and I will do a post on it when I get some more pics!

Vanilla Bean Roasted Cherries

blogimage

Hello, my name is Meghan and I’m addicted to cherries. Admitting is the first step, right? It is officially that time of year when I walk into the grocery store and kiss my money goodbye on that big display staring me down in the produce department. And seriously, I always think I’m buying a reasonable amount until I go to pay, and then it’s all like what??! But they’re so worth it.
And then I have all these plans for cherry desserts and what happens? I gobble them all up. I won’t even tell you how many cherry desserts were supposed to happen last summer and yet there is not one cherry dessert on this site… I told you it’s a problem.
