Best Gingerbread cookies ever!

5 Jan

Hello everyone!

Please forgive my absence, things have continued to be ridiculously busy.  I’ve been going non stop since I got back from Kansas.  Unfortunately after the Disney Christmas Parade filming, I got horribly sick, right in time to have a nasty cold for my birthday lol.  After that my best friend came to visit for Christmas which was wonderful because we love to cook together.  I really wanted to make gingerbread cookies so we found a fantastic recipe that we modified to make the best gingerbread cookies I’ve ever had.  I’ve been wanting to post this forever, but two days after Joani (my BFF) left, I flew over to spend NYE with her,  so I’ve had like no time to do anything!  Anyways, a little late, but hey, it’s never too late to make gingerbread cookies : ).

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

19 Sep

My favorite season is here! Pumpkin season!

One of my favorite things about the fall season (or just summer part 2 in Florida) is that pumpkin flavored items are sold everywhere!  I’m a bit obsessed with anything pumpkin flavored, and of course love to bake anything and everything I can with pumpkin.  So to kick off the season, I’ve started with some pumpkin cookies!  These are really tasty, fluffy cookies with a surprise medley of flavors created by the mixture of the pumpkin spices and the chocolate chips : ).  I find that even people who aren’t pumpkin crazed will still really enjoy these (my brother for example)!

Minecraft Birthday Cake!

15 Sep

Hey guys!

How’s everyone doing? I’ve been quite busy this week with some birthday cakes I’ve been making for friends.  One of the cakes I did this week was a Minecraft cake!  I was asked to make a Minecraft themed cake, so I went with the actual Minecraft cake as my theme.  If you’re interested on how to make your own Minecraft cake, follow the cut for my tutorial!

Camo Cupcakes

9 Jun

A couple of months ago I rotated out of my old program at work. There were also a few new people who had rotated in, so our team decided to have a celebratory cook out : ).  I’m typically in charge of bringing dessert to our cook outs, so I decided to make cupcakes.  Because I work for the military, I wanted to do something fun and themed, so I decided to make some camo cupcakes!  This was super easy, and looked really neat, let’s begin!

Chocolate Present Cake

26 Dec

Hello everyone!
Can you believe that Christmas has already passed us by!? I feel like the holidays were a whirlwind this year!  I unfortunately haven’t had any time to do much baking, which was unfortunate, since I love baking during the holidays, but as my brother’s birthday as well as my own + Christmas all happened during this month, there was hardly a free moment!

However, since it was my brother’s birthday as I mentioned earlier, I did make his birthday cake!  I decided to go with a present theme, since I’ve always wanted to make one.  It didn’t come out perfect (my frosting skills aren’t perfected yet), but I did think it came out pretty decent for my first try.  So, during this entry, I’ll be walking you through making a very simple present cake!

Let’s begin!

Chocolate Strawberry Cupcakes

20 Aug

Earlier this month we celebrated my friend Amanda’s birthday, and of course my friend Laina and I had to make something!  I can’t take much credit for the original idea of these cupcakes as Laina showed me a picture of them that she had seen floating around the web, but I found them so cute and easy that I just had to share : ).

For these cupcakes you’ll need…
