So, here's something different!

The idea for this cake came to me one morning before I was even awake. I had a dream about making a peas and carrots cake - and before you ask, I hadn't watched Forrest Gump before bed that night (haha!). I guess I've had romantic love and weddings on my mind lately because I'm making two wedding cakes this year for relatives. I think this cake would be a super cute engagement party cake, or even an anniversary cake.

I've been on a real rosé wine kick lately (okay,  perhaps since last July!) so I decided to give my favorite white chocolate mousse recipe a new twist! There's nothing better in hot summer months than a cold refreshing treat, right? These toast-worthy pink cakes are served chilled, just like your favorite rosé wine! 

Hello, friends! You may have noticed that I've been absent from the blog for a few weeks, which was longer than expected. May was a busy month full of baking and photographing things for clients and working on a special passion project. I also threw my parents an anniversary party, which was really great and I got to see a bunch of my family and friends all at once. It was nice to spend time with them, but now I'm ready to get back in the swing of all things blog related!

Tartufo may be the fanciest-to-eat but unfanciest-to-make dessert you should know about. It's an ice cream dessert that originated in Italy, and the name tartufo means 'truffle'. I first tried a chocolate mousse version of this dessert years ago at a local Italian restaurant. I always order it when we dine there, and digging for the amaretto-soaked cherry in the center is like a treasure hunt! This version is my own, but it doesn't depart too much from the original. It only takes about 5 ingredients to make and I think it's an elegant ending for a dinner party!

I have two special treats to share today! The first is this golden chai cake, which is richly spiced with cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. It's covered in honey-cream cheese frosting and together that makes  the cake reminiscent of my favorite cup of tea. The second treat is a fun giveaway sponsored by Fair Trade brands. One lucky reader will receive a big box of Fair Trade products and ingredients in honor of Mother's Day!

Each year at Mother's Day I partner with Fair Trade USA to help raise awareness about the important work they do to empower women. Did you know that women produce half of the world's food yet only own 2% of land? (Wow!) Fair Trade provides women with resources to start businesses and helps provide maternity leave and childcare. This helps increase educational opportunities and better medical care for their families. All we have to do to help this effort is to buy Fair Trade brands! It's so easy - it's a no-brainer!



Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, and I have some zesty little cookies that are guaranteed to make your fiesta 100% cuter!

These citrus slice lookalikes are delicious butter cookies loaded with aromatic lime zest. I like to make the dough ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator, that way I can slice and bake the cookies at my convenience. There are a few steps to shaping the dough but it's not difficult - I promise! And to ensure your complete success with this recipe I've made a video tutorial for you to follow.

If you're like me and like a little coffee with your coffee, then I have a great recipe for you!

These tiramisu cupcakes belong next to your java and newspaper for an afternoon pick-me-up (but I can tell you from experience they make a tasty breakfast, too). The yellow cakes get dipped in a mixture of strong coffee, espresso and coffee liqueur - much like the ladyfingers in the original dessert. The frosting is a tall swirl of whipped mascarpone cream which is so silky and light, I'd use it to cover just about any sweet thing.
