So you know all those gorgeous ruffle cakes we see everywhere? Like this one? Or this one? Or even […]...

Uh…so it’s December 21st. And the world continues to turn. How many people are feeling sheepish today? I’m not, personally. I mean, really? Aztecs (or Mayans…oops) predict the Apocalypse? No. But seriously, I would love to be a fly on the wall in a house with one of those dooms day prepper people. You know […]...

I’m not sure I understand Elf on the Shelf. I mean, I think it’s adorable. From what I gather, the little fella, or gal, pops in to keep an eye on kiddos, and make sure they’re staying outta trouble, yes? The elves report back to the Big Man himself on whether the kids are being […]...

Last week, my friend Jen, over at Epbot, posted a super fun and easy tutorial for a Nutcracker Redo (she was originally inspired by House of Hepworths tutorial). I was immediately inspired to run out and grab a couple of nutcrackers myself, but along the way, they morphed from being sweets inspired to something I could […]...

The second was this AMAZING snow globe cake by Amanda of i am baker. Okay, so my cake doesn’t have an incredible snow globe inside, but […]...

Wanna know a little secret? I’ve been learning a new language lately. It’s called Kid Speak. And it. is. awesome. In a drive-you-completely-insane-until-you-finally-get-it kind of way. You hear all these stories about kids saying goofy things to the lyrics of songs that are completely wrong, but sound just like the actual lyrics, and you think, […]...

My dad loved gingerbread. Not, like, the super crunchy, glue it together with icing, and keep it for 10 years kind of gingerbread. Not the cookies. He loved actual gingerbread. He used to buy the boxed mix and make it at least half a dozen times every Christmas. He’d serve it up hot from the […]...

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens… I decided that it was only appropriate that I celebrate the winner of my favorite things giveaway with a cake based on “My Favorite Things,” the song. You know, the one that Maria (Julie Andrews) sings to the Von Trapp children […]...

For today’s post, I really wanted two things: 1. To make something that looked like an adorable mini Christmas pudding (or figgy pudding)…even if it wasn’t actually Christmas pudding. 2. To make something that was fast and easy, and that could be made with everything I already had on hand. I honestly didn’t think I’d be able to. At […]...

Once again, I present a recipe that is actually rooted in a food dislike of mine: eggnog. I have never liked eggnog. Unfortunately, the hubster loves it. It’s unfortunate because I have a bad habit of not buying what I don’t like…so he misses out. Our boy loves it too. He says it’s his favorite […]...
