Two Peas in a Pod Cake

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to make a baby shower cake for my best friend’s aunt aka the talented lady who designed my logo!

This cake has been by far one of my favorite cakes to make. The mother-to-be is having twins and requested a “two peas in a pod” theme. I was ecstatic to design this cake as I’ve never done a cake for twins.

Aloha Hawaii! (Pt. 2) {A Taste Of My Life}

This is week 2 of my Hawaii adventure! If you haven’t read week 1 yet, then click here!

Okay, so I left off on Sunday, the last day of week 1. Here I go with week 2, day 8!

Day 8:

As I mentioned in my previous post, this was the day my family and I were going to a Luau. A Luau is basically this big Hawaiian feast where hundreds of people eat delicious authentic food while getting entertained by a number traditional hawaiian dances.

So that evening, my family drove to the Grand Wailea, which is this beautiful resort where the Luau was being held.

Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Muffins

You all should know about my obsession with cinnamon rolls by now. I’ve made cinnamon rolls so many times this past couple months, it’s not even funny. Last weekend I craved some buttery, sweet cinnamon rolls (as I do almost every weekend) and I usually make them at night so that I could just pop them in the oven the next morning, but unfortunately I didn’t have the time to make them that night.

My wanting for cinnamon rolls was still there the next morning and I was inspired by this blogpost to somehow make a muffin form of a cinnamon roll. And in almost no time at all, the most amazingly tasty thing ever was created. Cinnamon roll muffins.
