These are such gorgeous cakes! So colorful and intricate. I know my 10-year-old self would have been in awe over the treat covered ones, and my current self loves the flower ones. Too pretty to eat! From @unbirthdaybakery on Instagram!
Our oven is still being sassy. Which is the pits because it’s warm food and baking season! The weather even currently matches! Hopefully it will be fixed soon. In the meantime, we got the idea to make little microwave mug cakes! A fun evening treat to mix up after baby bedtime. (ps- it says two minutes, which is the cooking time, but then it says wait 15 minutes for cooling. So it’s kind of a lie, but still fun.) Do you have any favorite no bake or microwave treats we can try??
The leaves are definitely falling, and its time to figure out a tiny costume for the little guy. We always called him a little pumpkin while he was growing, but he would honestly look adorable in anything. Also, our oven has been broken, but as soon as it is repaired, we are so excited for all the baking (like that pear crisp) and roasting!
I made some extra cookie dough for the freezer today. I pre-scooped them into cookies so they are ready to go. We sometimes have trouble with frozen cookie dough staying really gooey in the middle, so I tried flattening them a bit, to see if that helps them bake better. We’ll see if it works next time we have a cookie emergency!
What are you up to this weekend? I’ve got some brownies in the oven, and I am in the middle of going through my fabric. We are hoping to go see the play in the park, and of course, tend to all our growing veggie babies. Hope you have a good one! (delicious photo here. my favorite kind of ice cream.)
We made strawberry ice cream to celebrate the first day of summer. And the first day of summer rewarded us by raining again. So we enjoyed our ice cream cones inside on the couch watching a movie. At least it tasted like summertime.
We had breakfast for dinner last week, except instead of like an omelet, we had cinnamon rolls. Plus bacon and hash browns because we aren’t monsters. These ones turned out especially spirally, and we loved each and every one of them.
This little parade of desserts gets me. I haven’t practiced my fabric embroidery in a while, but I loved making this treat towel gift. It now lives in the home of someone who deserves a tiny dessert parade in their honor every day.
Bundt cakes are one of the scariest cakes, because of the pan. Mixing it up just requires you to follow the directions. Easy enough. But you can follow every direction for preparing the pan, and there is still the heart stopping moment when you turn it over, praying out loud that the sucker will just slide right out.
I flipped this one over, took a time out before I got too frustrated, and I would say 98% finally came out perfectly. The 2% was thankfully more cosmetic than structural, so you can’t even notice. Going into the win column.
