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.

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.

Cake 4 Kids #7 -Harry Potter Book Cake

Last week I made another cake for Cake 4 Kids.

This cake turned out to be one of my most favorite cakes I have ever made! I had so much fun making this cake! The cake I made was …..*drum roll*……….

A Harry Potter themed book cake!

If you don’t know already, I have a huge obsession over the Harry Potter books, so when I found out that this cake was requested to be Harry Potter themed, I immediately volunteered to make this cake!

I looked at many pictures of Harry Potter themed cakes and I came across a cake that looked like a book, and I thought that was a really good idea so I incorporated a few Harry Potter objects as well.

This cake was a small 2 layer rectangle cake that I covered with chocolate brown and white fondant.

All of the decorations including the scarf, glasses, and wand were made with fondant by me.
