Today is my niece Rebecca’s 3rd Birthday, and I was convinced for this whole year that I’d be making a Frozen themed cake come December. To my surprise, my brother informed me that she wanted a “Shimmer & Shine” birthday cake. Shimmer & Shine, you say? Turns out this is Rebecca’s new favourite TV show […]

August 2, 2015 Baked Sunday Mornings

Today we’re celebrating Martha Stewart’s birthday with a classic yellow cake/chocolate icing combination from Baked Occasions. Matt has a deep love for Martha which he writes about in the book, and while I wouldn’t consider myself a disciple, I can appreciate her domestic goddess-ness and attention to detail. This recipe is very straightforward, and I […]

Baking layer cakes is pretty much like therapy for me. I can rush my way through a batch of cookies or make a pan of brownies practically with my eyes closed, but layer cakes demand time, patience and love. We have a few coming up on our Baked Sunday Morning schedule and I can’t wait […]

Well let’s get July started off right! As I mentioned the other day, June was not the greatest month on the foodie front over here. What I didn’t talk about was the greatest tragedy of all: it appears as though I’ve missed out on rhubarb this year. I’m going to see what I can find […]

Today we’re celebrating Butter Baked Goods! If you read my October recap, you know that I spent my birthday afternoon with my blogging friends at Butter in Vancouver, and I basically wanted to move into the store.

Today is my BIRTHDAY and there was no question in my mind what my birthday cake would be this year. I’ve had my eye on this cake forever, and then my friend Danielle made it twice this summer, and I knew it needed to happen. I’ve written about this at length before, but I love […]

Chocolate Mayo Cupcakes

This is one of my favourite, if not the BEST Baked Sunday Mornings, for reasons that have very little to do with the actual recipe we made. I’m still feeling all sorts of warm fuzzy feelings from this week’s trip to NYC where I got to meet many of the Baked Sunday Mornings crew. It […]

I hope everyone had a great Easter yesterday! I had my parents over for a feast of Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf, Mac & Cheese, Twice-Baked Potatoes and a big green salad. This is what happens when you make your Mom watch The Pioneer Woman with you everyday when you’re on vacation! Everything was delicious and it […]

My Favourite Buttercream

After almost four years of blogging, I’ve decided it’s unacceptable that some of my all-time favourite recipes still haven’t made it on my website. Things like my Mom’s Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins or my go-to Peanut Butter Cookies are missing, and I can’t let this stand any longer. So welcome to a new series of […]
