Greatest Combination on Earth

Peanut butter and chocolate. This is my ultimate, hands-down, favorite flavor combination known to mankind. Okay, so maybe I am getting a little dramatic... but if I am ever stranded on a deserted island and had to choose three things to take with me, I would want peanut butter, chocolate and milk.

I made these yummy Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting for the ladies at my office and the breakroom looked like a swarm of bees on a honeycomb. They went crazy for these little cakes! And I completely understand why.

Showers for a new baby girl

I was so excited when I got the call about Lena's baby shower... and then even more excited when I got the call about her next baby shower a few weeks later! She is having a baby girl, and I have always loved decorating girly cakes.

For the first shower, I made this Vanilla Cake with Raspberry Filling and decorated it with a basketweave design and rockinghorse drawing. I also made Pink Lemonade Cupcakes and Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting. Yumm!

For her next baby shower, I made a two-tier Fresh Strawberry Cake decorated in pink and brown. The cake was topped with a baby carriage drawing and the date of the shower. Also, check out those adorable cupcake favor boxes that the hostess found! We filled the favor boxes with Banana Cupcakes topped with Cream Cheese frosting or Chocolate Fudge Frosting.

Spring Fling

I love the first days of Spring... everything is so crisp and fresh, the colors are bright and cheery, and the urge to bake gets even stronger! To welcome Spring, I made this little Dragonfly Vanilla Cake with Buttercream Frosting.

Spring is also a great season for showers... lingerie showers, in fact! For my college friend, Lauren, I made this Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake with a margarita theme to go along with her "fiesta" Lingerie Shower. Everyone loved the cake and I had so much fun catching up with the girls! Congrats Lauren & Scott!
