Happy Pride Week Everyone! There have been loads of activities and events happening around Vancouver this week, and on Thursday, my company hosted a pride potluck lunch for all the staff in the office. For my contribution, I decided to make this massive six layer rainbow cake!
I made this rhubarb upside-down cake for the first time last year and I couldn’t resist making it again! The first time I made it, I baked it as a 9 inch round cake, but this time I wanted to see how it would turn out if miniaturized. Spoiler alert – it turned out great!
Between work, appointments, errands, house warmings, and other events that have popped up unexpectedly over the past couple of weeks, things have been pretty busy around here. The weather has also been gloriously warm, so I’ve chosen to spend what little spare time I have had puttering around the garden and fussing over my plants. As such, I haven’t had much free time to hunt down new recipes to try out.
Carrot cake is one of those desserts that I tend to forget about until it’s right under my nose, and then suddenly I remember how much I enjoy it. Over the years, I’ve eaten my fair share of this often under appreciated treat, but I’ve never actually made one myself. At least, until now.
This week I was planning on making a St. Patrick’s day themed something or other, but then the plague hit me hard and I spent several days sliding in and out of various states of consciousness. Luckily, this cake is delicious any day of the year, so I’m just going to roll with this and recommend you make it anyway.
This past week we had the pleasure of celebrating the birthday of one of our favourite humans! No birthday celebration is complete without a cake, so I baked this chocolate Baileys cake and frosted it with a baileys infused buttercream.
You probably never thought you’d hear the words chocolate, oatmeal, spider and cake together in a sentence, but now you have, and trust me, it’s an excellent combination!
Tis the season for pumpkin spice everything, including this delicious pumpkin spice pound cake! I became obsessed with this cake more by luck than judgement, and now I make it at least once every time fall rolls around. Before I get into the details of how to make this cake, let me tell you the story of how I found this recipe in the first place.
This sweet, citrusy cake makes a perfect summer time dessert. I’ll admit, this is the only pineapple upside-down cake recipe I have ever made but I have no desire to try a different one because I love this one so much. Continue reading “Pineapple Upside-Down Cake”
Whenever anyone asks me to recommend a cake recipe, this is always the first one I suggest. I love everything about this cake. It’s moist, buttery, fruity, not too sweet, and it smells absolutely heavenly. Continue reading “Strawberry Summer Cake”
