Engagement Cakes with CandiCakes

Typically, our standard birthday cake is a Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip frosting and Funfetti. That is all you need. There was the cupcakes for a friend’s bridal shower. It was mix and simple fondant, but not the real deal engagement cake ...

Carrot Zucchini Cake

I bet you’ve been thinking all this time, all this lady ever seems to post about is chocolate. And that would be a pretty accurate assumption. I really do have some kind of a sick obsession with it, but every now and then I love to mix it up a ...

Chocolate Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Filling

It’s so embarrassing to admit, but if I were on a desert island and I could only have one meal it would definitely be a cheeseburger and fries, and chocolate cake, of course. I really only said the cheeseburger and fries for health purposes ...

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Spring break, what an American classic. Oh, I remember it well. That time of year when college students from all over the U.S. head to warmer climates to blow off a little steam. I suppose blowing off a little steam is actually putting it very ...

Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake

What it is about chocolate chips..just the mere mention of their name floods my brain with good memories and happy times. They’re so versatile these little morsels, and I love to ponder their endless possibilities. I marvel how their presence ...

Flourless Chocolate Cake

A chocolate smackdown. That’s the only way I can describe this Chocolate Flourless Cake. It is a dense cake, with such intense chocolate flavor that I assure you, my food infatuated friends, that a small sliver is all you’ll need. And ...

Apple Streusel Coffee Cake

I come from a long line of coffee cake eaters. In fact, the family motto is” we never met a coffee cake we didn’t like”. Our family’s coat-of-arms is a cheese Danish and a cup of coffee. So you get my drift, right. We like ...

Cranberry Lemon Bundt Cake

I had neglected the blog recently as my attention had been directed elsewhere in the past few weeks. I have just returned from a trip back east where I attended my high school reunion, and boy, was it a good time. The last time I saw many of these ...

Pumpkin Streusel Coffee Cake

Wow, what a week it’s been. I think this was the first time in two decades I’ve been all alone in the house for an entire week. Imagine that folks. The husband was away on business in New York, son #1 was working and son #2 is away at ...

Chocolate Truffle Brownies

What’s the best way for a mother to send her child off to college; with a pan of super-chocolatey brownies of course. I had spent days packing for my son Michael, purchasing him some pots and pans, bedding and laundry detergent, as well as a ...

Honey Cake

What is it about a marble cake that I find so endearing?  Is it that I get two distinct flavors of cake in one bite, or is it that very cool 70’s psychedelic swirl that the two batters produce. Probably a little of both I guess. I’ve been ...
