Let's Bake Love!

Everyone in life is blessed with some kind of good fortune. Maybe it's wealthy parents. Maybe it's a dazzling voice. Maybe it's that perfect body or something else. My good fortune is my husband.

My husband has beautiful brown eyes and a smart-ass smile. He twirls his wedding band around his finger when he's deep in thought. He has an obsession with all televised sports: when his teams are playing he will cheer yell and carry on like he's wearing the coach's hat or a player's jersey. While he'd never admit to it, he has the most wicked sweet tooth I've ever seen. He bellows at me if I stir the pan while he's cooking, and he rubs his face whenever he grows tired, and he gives the best back rubs in the world.

Let the Fun Begin! Wilton Decorating Basics

Last week I was in cupcake mode and was wandering the baking isles of my local Michael's craft store in search of cute cupcake liners. While looking at all the gadgets and decorating goodies, I overheard a lady asking where a certain item was that she needed for her class. My ears perked up... class? what kind? Just then I noticed a flyer taped to the end of the isle where I was standing. It read.... "Are you interested in cake decorating?" I answered "Well yes, I am actually" to myself of course.

 I obviously love to bake and feel confident that I have mastered the art of making delicious-tasting desserts. However, I have been incredibly slow on the attention to deliciously decorated cakes. Bundt cakes, no problem!

Celebrating my new look with German Chocolate Cake with Coconut Pecan Frosting

Were celebrating with cake! With the new year upon us, I decided I needed a little change on my blog. I have been working hard this week to bring my blog a new look as I'm sure you've already noticed! I have a new graphic at the top which is more recipe and/or cooking related. I just have to shout out to Lena at Simply Fabulous as she inspired me with her "just like me" blog characters. This one is mine thou! Lena helped me with my new recipe girl to get her just right. Check them out if you're looking for an update or new theme to your design. Check out the tutorials too. They are easy to follow and will help you with neat tips and tricks.
Although I've been busy behind the scenes here, I'm just getting settled. I can't wait to get started on some long overdue posts. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my blog.
Today.... we celebrate with my favorite cake! One of my most indulgent cake is the almighty German Chocolate. This cake is not for you if you are watching your calories, it's not the skinny version, it is for you if you want to indulge....What if you could make the best, moist chocolate cake recipe you ever tasted, from scratch, in about the same time it takes you to make a box cake?

Doesn't that just make your mouth water!!!
