Swedish Sockerkaka

It’s September. WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN. I feel like I say that every time a new month comes along, but seriously. When. Did. That. Happen. It feels like yesterday that August was starting and it feels like July started the day before that. Not multiple […]

Vanilla Cake with Fresh Whipped Cream

Vanilla Cake with Fresh Whipped Cream

I am terrible at surprises. I have never planned them and I’ve only ever been surprised twice in my life and both times I’m pretty sure I fell on the floor. Surprises just take a lot of planning, a lot of work, and a lot […]

Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes with Pink Vanilla Buttercream

Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes with Pink Vanilla Buttercream

I love sprinkles, which is probably most definitely why I love funfetti. I don’t remember ever buying the box mix myself but I had it at parties and something about colorful sprinkles hidden in a cake batter is just so fun. So, when I found […]

Summer doesn’t technically start for another few weeks but it sure feels like summer. Memorial Day always feels like the start of summer, kicking off the fun summery activities like BBQs, bonfires, beach days, and relaxing and having fun. While Los Angeles hasn’t changed weather […]

Mini Lemon Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Living in Los Angeles, every day kind of feels like spring. Some days are warmer than others, but there’s not a huge difference. Also, living out here, I was lucky to avoid the “April Showers” since, you know, it almost NEVER rains here. And now […]

Chocolate Cupcakes for Two

Chocolate Cupcakes for Two

Happy National Chocolate Cupcake Day! I had no idea that there WAS such a thing. If you google national food holidays, nearly every day has some sort of food celebration attached to it. It’s kind of overwhelming. But it’s also kind of motivating. According to […]

Mini Cupcakes: Honey Spice Chai, Nutella, & Limoncello

The only thing better than regular size cupcakes? Mini cupcakes. They’re mini and adorable and bite size and delicious. The only problem? They’re so mini and bite size and delicious that you can pop one in your mouth and all of a sudden that one […]

Nutella Cupcakes

Nutella Cupcakes

As a lover of all things baked and dessert, I have a hard time picking a favorite. It feels like every time I try something new, I declare it my favorite, have a brief love affair while I eat way too many of said cupcakes/cookies/cakes/somedeliciousbakedgood, […]

Lemon Limoncello Cupcakes

Lemon Limoncello Cupcakes

It’s been two months since my graduation. Say what? I have no idea where the time has gone. It probably has to do with the 40-50 hours I work plus all the train rides into new york for multiple auditions a week. All good things […]

I’m not sure where all of you are, but where I live? It’s. Been. Hot. Miserable. 90-100 degrees and humid. So gross. You walk outside and your face melts off. Literally. For the past month it’s been like this off and on. It’s heat wave […]
