Mardi Gras King Cake

Traditions and customs are plenty when it comes to the King Cake. I made a cake that is more in line with those found in the Southeast United States, centering around the New Orleans Mardi Gras festivities. I used natural food dyes {spinach green, blueberry purple and pineapple gold} to decorate my cinnamon-roll King Cake with the iconic Mardi Gras colors.

Chocolate Waffles with Strawberry Hearts

Chocolate and hearts, a quintessential Valentine’s Day treat. With the big day quickly approaching I wanted to make a special breakfast. Chocolate waffles topped with homemade whipped cream and strawberry hearts did the trick.

Seahawks Layer Cake with Natural Dyes

My color choice for this naturally-dyed layer cake obviously reveals who I’ll be rooting for but I’ll give you Broncos fans a little hint: you can have your {blue and orange} cake and eat it, too, if you simply use carrot juice instead of spinach juice.

St. Patrick’s Day Jelly Roll Cake

Amidst the checkout chaos of paying for groceries with my 4 and almost 2-year olds, I started envisioning a naturally-dyed green jelly roll cake in the shape of a shamrock. And voilĂ ! Here we are a few days before St. Patrick’s Day and my brainstorm image has come to life. You can enjoy your jelly roll in individual slices or arrange three slices per plate to make a festive St. Paddy’s shamrock.

Beet Red Velvet Cupcakes

As popular as red velvet cake (and red velvet everything) has become, I don’t remember ever having red velvet cake as a kid. I do, however, have a vivid childhood memory of gasping with girlish delight as they cut into the armadillo cake in the movie Steel Magnolias. I guess ever since then I’ve had red velvet cake on my mental baking list.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Pancakes

These pumpkin pie {buttermilk} pancakes topped with maple cinnamon whipped cream and maple pecans transition from a comforting breakfast to a decadent dessert. The finishing touch of maple cinnamon whipped cream and maple pecans is admittedly not the healthiest option but for a special Thanksgiving treat, you’ll be thankful that you indulged!

Using banana bread as the cake and peanut butter as the frosting you can have all the fun of a cake pop with a little less guilt. My son loves these and we don’t miss all of the extra sugar and butter.

Naked {Jack-o-lantern} Cake Pops

These cake pops without a chocolate candy coating came about by accident. In the middle of making cake pops we ran out of Wilton dipping chocolate but I realized that my whole family still devoured them. Admittedly, they are less polished looking, but they are also less sweet and we didn’t miss the chocolate coating at all.
