    Yummy In My Tummy

    Oh now I'm gonna have to go home and let the kids help me bake one... or maybe cupcakes are a better choice. I do love to bake though... I think my all time favorite was a pumpkin cheesecake! It took forever but came out perfect! Pies are fun too and puddings and oh this is bad...

    Macaroon Syrup Cake

    Ok, so this is one of my all-time favourite cakes. I stumbled across it one day I was feeling particularly wild and looking for something a little different from my standard chocolate cake. Not only is it incredibly easy to make, it is extremely delicious...

    It All Started When I Was 13

    We lived in an antebellum mansion in Macon, Georgia.  My mother always cooked dinners, sometimes held large parties for their friends, upwards of 50-75 people might come.  There were trays of hors d'oeuvres, finger sandwiches, and quiches, such were the rage back then...

    All Kinds

    I have always loved to bake. Bread and cakes are my favorite things to make.  I particularly like making spice breads, red velvet cake, and pineapple upside down cake.

    Baking

    I think baking is fun.  I like baking cookies but I like better baking cakes.  When I was young, I loved watching my mom bake.  She constantly baked alot and I think this is where my passion came from.

    Schwartzwaldtorte

    "Black Forest Cake" for you non-speaking Germans... It is the best cake I have ever had. I have an original German recipe, so it is super extravagant. It has a buttercream filling with cherries, the cake layers are soaked in krisch, and it is iced with whipped cream spiked with...

    Cakes Are the Best

    There's just something immensely satisfying about baking. Seeing the finished product always gives me a sense of personal acheivement. Particularly if I manage not to burn it. Which I've stopped doing so frequently now, thankfully. Cakes are the best though, especially chocolate...

    Jumble Cake

    This is a cake my grandmother made every week of her life (well as far as I remember) . It  was a Sunday ritual to have tea and cake at our her house - a few blocks away. I too now try to make one every week myself and never tire of eating it ...  ...

    Why Does Southern Living Always Make Huge Cakes?

    I have made several different Southern Living pound cakes and they always over flow my pan. Annoys me to no end. I have made several variations of pound cakes from other recipe sources and they never over flow. I guess I just need to find a bigger pan. They are delicious cake...
