A Disaster of a Chocolate Strawberry Cake

This cake was delicious, but a fucking mess. I forgot to grease the cake pans like a goddamn amateur. It was my friend’s birthday cake (sorry, Stacy), but she was nice about it. Seemed wasteful to throw away perfectly good cake that was just a little (a lot) broken. We don’t waste cake around here!… Continue reading A Disaster of a Chocolate Strawberry Cake

Brownie Cheesecake for a Visitor

As previously mentioned, my love language is “acts of service,” which is primarily demonstrated through cooking and baking. Since the guy was visiting from Hawaii last week, and I had missed his birthday by a few weeks, I made him this birthday cheesecake (which is better than a boring normal birthday cake). He mentioned in… Continue reading Brownie Cheesecake for a Visitor

The Best Chocolate Cake

I made this cake a few weeks ago for Hannah’s husband’s birthday. He requested chocolate cake, and gave me no other fucking information. I was like, “But what kind of chocolate? Chocolate on chocolate or vanilla frosting? Maybe a raspberry filling? German chocolate? Nuts? Ganache? Dark or milk?” Honestly, my chocolate questions can go on and… Continue reading The Best Chocolate Cake

Taro Mochi Cake

This is the first of what will become many attempts to recreate the amazing taro mochi cake I had on Kaua’i. I’m definitely going to have to cut the recipe in half next time, though, considering I can’t really get anyone to eat this. I love the texture, but Minnesotans are not about it. I… Continue reading Taro Mochi Cake

Pistachio Cake and Tinder Nightmares

I joined Tinder again, because apparently I’m a masochist. The first person I matched with started out the conversation by saying, “Thanks for having a booty. #rare” That, right there, is a direct quote. I thought maybe he would be funny, so I responded with, “Apparently that’s what happens when you love to eat donuts… Continue reading Pistachio Cake and Tinder Nightmares

Butterfinger Cheesecake

I am exhausted. I went to the grocery store the other day, and had all this baking shit to buy. The shopping basket was overflowing. I got half way through my shopping, and decided I couldn’t carrying anything else, so I went home. Does that ever happen to you? Like, I just no longer had the… Continue reading Butterfinger Cheesecake

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Is there anything better than pumpkin cake? I think it’s better than all the other pumpkin desserts. It might even be better than a pumpkin spice latte. I found this recipe a few years ago, and it has become somewhat of a tradition at this point. I make it every year for Thanksgiving, and sometimes… Continue reading Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting
