Unicorn Cake

My little niece Rebecca is getting so big and turned 5 at the end of December! For her birthday cake this year, she asked for a Unicorn Cake for her birthday party with her friends {*tear*}. I still think of her as the baby of the bunch (she’s the youngest cousin), so it was kind […]

This was the second year in a row we had a Baked Sunday Mornings cake assignment close to New Year’s Day. Last year it was the Ultimate Birthday Cake from Baked Occasions, and this year it’s the Whiteout Cake from the first Baked book. I scaled down the recipe to make a little 6″ cake, and […]

We’re currently going through a major change at my work. Last week, we moved to a brand new office without cubicles or assigned seating. It’s totally open, and you can sit wherever you want. There are different types of workspaces depending on what you need to do that day, for example, collaboration spaces, a quiet zone, […]

Milk & Cookies Cake

My favourite thing to bake lately has been cute little 6″ birthday cakes. This is no doubt due to the endless cake decorating videos I’ve been watching on Instagram (faves: @chelsweets,  @whippedcakeco, @bakingwithblondie, @karleeskupcakes). Making mini versions has been a great way to practice a few specific things (i.e. using a bench scraper to get smooth […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf

Welcome to a brand new round of Baked Sunday Mornings! Since the Baked boys don’t have a new cookbook out, we’re throwing it back to their very first book, Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. I learned about this book when I started reading Smitten Kitchen and bought it sometime in 2009 or 2010. I actually blogged about […]

Yes, dear reader, it has come to this. When I texted my niece to see what kind of cake she wanted for her 10th birthday, all I got back was a line of poop emojis. I quickly did a google image search, and sure enough, they are all over the internet. I sent her back […]

One of my favourite things to do with my co-workers is go to Lone Star for Fajita Fridays. It doesn’t necessarily take place on Fridays, and we don’t always eat fajitas, but there is one constant: CHEAP MARGARITAS. It’s truly the best. My friend Shane had all of us over to the patio in his […]

Sprinkle Loaf

And it’s not even my birthday! I saw this sprinkle loaf on Jenn’s Instagram last month and have been thinking about it NON-STOP ever since. I felt like it was everything good about Christina Tosi’s birthday cake without all the steps, wrapped up into a convenient loaf formation. The recipe comes from Bake from Scratch Magazine, […]

When my nephew started telling me that he wanted Krabby Patty Cupcakes for his birthday this year, I had no idea what he was talking about. I looked to my brother for guidance and his explanation started with “Well, you know how Spongebob is a fry cook?” and the answer to that was a resounding no, as […]
