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.

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 […]

Easter Cake

Last year’s Easter Cake was a work of art, in my humble opinion. Three layers of marble cake with Nutella filling, speckled buttercream frosting and cute little chocolate nests with mini eggs on top. I mean, come on. It doesn’t get much better than that. I couldn’t decide what to make this year, and I […]

Carrot Loaf

When Spring and Easter are on the horizon, there are three things I’m drawn to baking with that are all out of character for me: coconut, lemon and carrot. There is never any other time during the year when I’m interested in any of these ingredients in my desserts, but something about each of them […]

Angel Food Cake

Is it possible I’ve never eaten Angel Food Cake before in my entire dessert-eating life? I’m trying to think back and I can maybe remember eating some as a kid, but I’m not 100% sure if it was Angel Food Cake, or just a random sponge cake from the grocery store. In any case, it […]

I haven’t really done that much baking this month, as evidence by my lack of posts. I’ve been busy outside the kitchen, and also it is so. freaking. hot. I did make a couple of pretty amazing layer cakes in June and July, so I wanted to document them here. First up is this gorgeous […]
