So it’s been a looong time since I’ve posted a decorated cake (almost 5 months!!), and I’m so glad to be able to share this super cute garden themed cake that I made for a little girl’s 1st birthday.
Valentine’s Day is here and you can’t spend the day without making these wonderfully chocolatey lava cakes.
Molten lava cakes have been a favorite dessert of mine ever since I was little. I clearly remember the first time I ate one; I was on vacation in Whistler (a beautiful town in British Colombia), with my family and the four of us had to share one little lava cake. I remember the hot chocolate oozing out with vanilla ice cream melting into the warm cake, my nine year old self wondering how in the world did they get the center of the cake all melty and yummy.
Finals were a thing all last week for me, so what better way to end it with a vanilla bean coconut cake?
Is it not the most heavenly thing you’ve ever seen?
Thanksgiving break happens to fall around the same time as my dad and my little brother’s birthdays. My brother’s birthday came first which meant I had to somehow find the time to make a cake for him.
Guess what?! Another fall recipe!
Today I made a crumb cake! Crumb cake is also sometimes known as coffee cake. There are multiple variations of this cake, but because we’re getting into the fall season, I went for a cinnamon crumb cake.
A crumb cake is basically a moist cake with a crumble on top and in the center of the cake. The crumble that I used is made with a mixture of two kinds of sugar, cold butter, pecans, and walnuts. You can’t go wrong with those ingredients. 😉
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a fondant cake. I was soo excited to get this cake order for a cherry blossom cake for a girl at my school’s sweet 16. It was a very exciting experience as I’ve never done a cake like this before. Her party was cherry blossom themed, so the cake I made followed that theme as well.
Last week, my aunt came all the way from Pakistan to visit my family here in California. I of course had to bake a “Welcome to California” cake, so what better than this decadent naked dark double chocolate cake paired with my favorite vanilla cream cheese frosting? Nothing. Nothing is better than this.
It didn’t hurt that my aunt is also a chocoholic like me and my brother ;).
