Pumpkin & Chocolate Chip Crumble Cake

November 7, 2017 Cakes, Cupcakes & Icing

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

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 […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Derby Cookies

May 8, 2016 Baked Sunday Mornings
Derby Cookies

The Kentucky Derby has pretty much zero significance in my life. I think I watched it once, but it didn’t involve a big floppy hat or a mint julep which, in my opinion, are the two most appealing parts of this holiday. For Baked Sunday Mornings this week, the Baked Boys are running with the bourbon […]

Brown Sugar Cupcakes

I feel like we’re entering prime wedding shower season, so I wanted to finally document the treats I made for my friend Nicole’s wedding shower ONE YEAR AGO (better late than never). I had so much fun making ALL THE SQUARES for Nicole & Geoff’s Engagement Party, and it’s truly my joy in life to […]

Brown Sugar Maple Whoopie Pies

Happy Easter! For the second time recently, we’re posting a holiday recipe on the actual holiday! Well, the rest of the group is, but I’m going rogue. They’re making a Mega Easter Pie (“a meat and cheese utopia” as it’s dubbed in the book), but I’m not really into it. Check out their posts here. […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Brown Butter Apple Galette

Brown Butter Apple Galette

Last December I made a bold declaration on this here blog of mine: I was done with apple pie. I had finally had enough after making Saveur magazine’s Salted Caramel Apple Pie for Christmas, and was ready to put that out into the world. I often have trouble with pie in general, mostly because I […]

Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream + Bourbon Peach Pie

Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream

Well, I thought we’d go out with a bang before it’s all Apples, Pumpkins and Pears* around here!  Since I started a new job right in the middle of the summer, it kind of upset my flow in the kitchen, and feel like I didn’t get to make as many pies, crumbles, popsicles and ice […]

Aunt Shirley’s Blueberry Coffee Cake

Aunt Shirley

Blueberries have really gotten the short end of the stick here on Planet Byn. I’m not really sure why, as I can remember baking various blueberry cakes over the past few summers, but I haven’t blogged about them, or ever done a blueberry series here. That’s ending this week! It might have something to do […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Antique Caramel Cake

Antique Caramel Cake

When I see a Baked layer cake on our Baked Sunday Morning Schedule, the first thing that crosses my mind is if I have a free day to make it. There’s usually three cake layers involved, a cooked frosting, and a few other elements that require some time (see: making two batches of salted caramel […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Glaze

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

I’ve been lusting after pumpkin cinnamon rolls for three years. Seriously. You can see my comment from 2010 on Gwendolyn’s blog here. I was still pretty scared of yeast projects then, but I’m kind of proud of how I’ve taught myself to bake up carby goodness since then. I didn’t end up using that recipe, […]
