No way it’s that simple, right? IT’S SIMPLE AS CAN BE Make a batch of royal icing, bring on the piping bag & go to town. Let’s dig in! You’ll want to get your royal icing to a soft peak.

    Easy Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

    Easy Cheddar Cheese Biscuits I’ve been known to eat my weight in carbohydrates. Bread, rolls, sweets, this is my love language. So, when I tell you that I’m in love with these rolls, it really means something. This is not a post to sell you on making these biscuits. I don’t need to do that. If warm, savory, cheesy goodness is not your thing, then this is not for you. If you’re really into eating baskets upon baskets of Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits, then consider this a safe place. Did you say Cheddar Bay Biscuits? No, I didn’t but these are pretty damn close. If you want to make…

    Raincoast Crisps Recipe

    Raincoast Crisps Recipe My family is chock full of people who love cheese. It’s insane the amount of money we spend at the cheese counter. I’ve seriously contemplated starting an ongoing blog post that lists our favorite cheeses. One thing is for sure. If we have soft cheese, we want to pair it with some tasty & crispy crackers. Raincoat Crisps are one of our faves! The first time we tried them, I think we paid about $9 for the box. We paired the crackers with La Tur cheese. Although it is a delicious snack, all the cheese & crackers were gone in less than ten minutes. I know what you’re thinking! Damn, that’s…

    Patriotism Through Election Cake

    Patriotism Through Election Cake I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Election Day than with a cake. Though, any day involving cake is reason for celebration. Today’s adventure takes us back to the 1700s, where the drama of patriotism and politics resulted in dessert bribes. It is said that Election Cakes were baked and sold only to those who voted a straight ticket. I’d like to think that today we’ve moved beyond cake rewards, but it would definitely have influenced my seven-year old self. A yeasted loaf cake filled with spices and dried fruit, they were often spiked with Madeira wine and brandy. The alcohol served to preserve the cake…

    Texas Sheet Cake Cupcake Recipe

    Texas Sheet Cake Cupcake Recipe We love a good Texas Sheet Cake at my house. Growing up, my grandmother made them frequently. Bummer for me though because she always put pecans in the frosting. Yes, I realize that most people love the chocolate & pecan combo, but not me. I’m what my momma would call a purist. Quickly, I honed my Texas Sheet Cake skills as I wanted my own cake sans pecans. For as long as I can remember this is the cake that is suitable for any and all occasions. I never thought about changing it up until Amanda Faber, of my favorite baking podcast, Flour Hour mentioned a Texas Sheet…

    Strawberry Buttermilk Layer Cake Recipe

    Strawberry Buttermilk Layer Cake Recipe Traditions go hard with my crew. My dad’s birthday is in April & every year he gets a cake with pink icing. He says it started with my Grandmother having red & green food coloring left over from Christmas cookies, so when it came time to bake him a birthday cake, she went with the red & a cake with pale pink icing was born. Now, he expects a pink iced cake. We’ve strayed from the tradition on a few different traditions & I have to admit, it doesn’t feel the same without that bright, pink icing juxtaposed against his gruff exterior. This year, I wanted to change…
