Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Fall is finally here and in my opinion it’s one of my favorite seasons.

And it’s not because of the red and gold leaves or because it’s finally sweater weather, or even because I get a week long break from school.  It’s because I have an excuse to bake with so many flavors.

I mean there’s pumpkin and apple and so many different spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.

Today I have here a recipe that’s so easy you don’t even a need an electric mixer. It can be made all by hand. Not to mention that these cupcakes are absolutely delicious.

Daisy “Cake 4 Kids” Cake #6

I have finally gotten to bake after so long! Like 3 WHOLE WEEKS. Yeah, I know it’s unbelievable.

The reason I couldn’t bake was because we were getting our kitchen remodeled which meant a new oven, so I guess it was worth the wait (even if I was getting low on sugar :/ ).

The cake that I baked this time was for Cake 4 Kids (an organization that I volunteer for). It was for a little girl that was turning two.

I decided to cover this cake with frosting instead of fondant. This cake was a 3 layer white cake with vanilla buttercream.

Because this cake was for a little girl, I loved planning out how I was going to decorate this cake. I probably had about a hundred girly things I could do with this cake. There were fondant bows, icing flowers, chocolate ribbons. Don’t even get me started on the different color schemes. 😉

At the end, I settled for an orange cake and white fondant daisies with yellow centers.

Simple and sweet.

Buttercream Rose Cake

Hi everyone, last weekend I made a buttercream rose cake. I used a 2 layer 6 inch chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream tinted pink with a bit of orange. To make the roses, I  made swirls that looked like rosettes on the sides and top of the cake. I started at the bottom of the cake and made my way to the top. This is a really simple cake and is very forgiving because even if you mess up on one rose all you have to do is scrape it off and try again! We had a few guests over and they enjoyed the cake with us.
