A book about Cupcakes

Pin It!

Currently… loving:


Chocolate Fudge Parfaits

Or really, just parfaits in general. I don’t know what’s more fun: eating them or preparing them. It’s like an art project in a glass! Currently reading:


Ooh look, it’s a magazine devoted entirely to cupcakes! My friend bought this for me… and then promptly told me I had to make some for her in return Winking smile.

Currently on my mind: All things carrot cake, such as…


Carrot Cake in a Bowl

Once again, my blog is not ready for the holiday arrive so soon. Here are the following posts I’d hoped to get up before Easter: carrot cake ice cream, milkshake, pancakes, fudge, dip…

I have carrot cake coming out of my ears, as I said on Twitter.

I’ll post one of the above recipes tomorrow, and will save the rest for after Easter. People still like carrot cake after Easter’s over, right? I know I certainly do!


Have you done anything fun today?

I have! I have! ! I ate a Cookie Dough Oatmeal Cake.

  1. I love how creative you are in deconstructing things! I can’t wait to see what you make out of the cupcake book.

    I love carrot cake on Easter, it is a necessity 🙂

    1. Every single idea looks so cool… I don’t know what to try first!

    Oh yess.. carrots are totally a yearround (and for sure anytime in spring) food in my opinion. And next week (and the next!) will still have that it’s-spring-and-we’re-cooking&baking-with-beautiful-orange-carrots! feeling. For sure. Carrot cake dip, cool!!

  3. I saw your twitter comment! I am super excited! I think carrot cake is good ALL YEAR around! 🙂

  4. I will be honest: I don’t get the cupcake craze! I think the ratio of icing to cake is off-putting for me. I have never been able to stomach that much sugar.

    I loooove carrot cake, though. My mom is the queen of carrot cake, zucchini bread, banana bread, pumpkin bread… The textures of all the fibery veggies & nuts are just awesome!

    1. Hehe I just like making them! But I am with you on the taste. Eating-wise, I’d rather have a dessert that’s dense and rich, like chocolate fudge or mousse pie… or something creamy like pudding or whipped cream!

  5. I like carrot cake year round! 😀
    Keep the carrot cake recipes coming! Yum!

    Carrot cake is fantastic! Now if you can come up with a vegan cream cheese frosting… or maybe you already have and I missed that post. Hmm….

    Fun for today? Sitting at home with a sick kid 😛

    1. It’s an ooooold post 😉

      Healthy (vegan) cream cheese frosting:

      And I’m sending well-wishes towards your home!!

    I like carrot cake on any day of the year.

    Anything fun today? Not really, but I’m seeing Scream 4 after work, that should be fun!

    1. Ahhh I hate hate hate Scream! It was the first horror movie I ever watched, and I am SUCH a baby. I imagined a guy in a ski mask coming to get me every single night for a month after.
