Traditional Wedding Cake for Two

Over the past summer, Tim and I attended two weddings. Weddings have cake right??? Wrong!!! Where was my slice of white, almondy, perhaps filled with raspberry filling cake?? Apparently I would have to make it myself……. Traditional Wedding Cake for Two ……because I wanted wedding cake damn it!!!!!

These days weddings may have a small cutting cake, but the trend is cupcakes, or dessert bars…..what?????? OK, call me old-fashioned, but I want there to be a gigantic white cake, with a bubbly fountain, and a bride and groom perched on top. The kind that requires a few of the brides friends trying to figure out how to cut said cake.

Traditional Wedding Cake for Two

Since we were not invited to those kinds of weddings, I wanted to make a cake to satisfy my wedding cake yearning. One that would taste like my visioned wedding cake. Continue reading “Traditional Wedding Cake for Two”

Halloween Treats

Halloween Treats

It’s hard to believe Halloween is just a month away. If you are in need of some extra special treats, here are three treat-rific ideas for your Halloween!!

Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

These little cuties take the scary out of spiders. The original recipes from A Spicy Perspective and was a huge hit on Facebook and Pinterest back in 2014.  

Although I am not a fan of a peanut butter cookie….don’t judge! These were easy to make, and cute as can be. Any cookie that has a truffle on top is my kind of cookie.

In the original post, I eluded to not being able to find the googly eyes, but they are mainstream these days and well…….Amazon!

 

Cauldron Cupcakes

Cauldron Cupcakes 5

Again with the googly eyes. Dark rich chocolate cupcakes decorated to look like a bubbling cauldron. 

Not nearly as intimidating as they look to make, green tinted frosting is decorated with edible candies. Red striped birthdays candles for witch legs with witches shoes attached with a dab of frosting.

These are by far my favorite Halloween treat…..but I do love cake!!!!

 

Witches Fingers

Witches Fingers

This recipe…..once I got the dipping part right was super easy. Let me correct that….once I got the candy coating right. See… I tried to add food coloring to white melting chocolate, take my word for it and save yourself some$$$ ( I had to throw away $5 of chocolate… it seized up when the color was added). Buy colored melts. They come in almost any color and work like a dream.

Bugles are a blast from the past for me, we used to put them on our fingers and pretend to have witches fingers…..I seem to remember the Bugles being larger. I guess maybe it just me….oh yeah….I’m larger….lol

Witches Fingers are a sweet-salty treat sure to satisfy any ghost or goblin. Place them in a plastic cauldron for a cute presentation.

Try any of these treats for Halloween party or as treats for your trick or treaters!!

 

Easy Almond Peach Tartlets

We are in the peak of peach season, so when I see them at a Farmers Market or a roadside stand, I tend to go overboard. Peaches do not last long and I had just a couple left from when I made Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Yogurt CreamEasy Almond Peach Tartlets have a similar flavor palate, just a different preparation.
