Brown Sugar Maple Sunflower Cookies

This summer has been one for the books, and not in the way I had been hoping. I had some really fun plans this summer, especially with the launch of my new book Cupcakery, but things took a turn before they even got started. In May we found out we would be expecting our fourth child and I pretty much spent ever day after battling the worst of morning all day sickness. I spent far too many days ... [ read more... ]

Mother’s Day Flower Treats Roundup

Mother's day is crazy soon, and if you're looking for something sweet to give you're mom, look no further! I have some sweet floury (ha, see what I did there?) treats that I picked just for mom! And I really do mean floury, because flowery presents die…and floury presents well, they stay with you forever - in the hips.

Popping Up Daisies Cake

Last week I shared with you guys a fun new Daisy Cookie Bouquet, I had a blast making them. After all edible flowers are the best kind of flowers! But while I was photographing them I thought, man why didn't I stick these in a cake...or even made dirt pudding in the pot? I just new I had to try out one of them with some extra flowers and well, we were long over due for a little cake around here. ... [ read more... ]

Daisy Cookie Bouquet

It's true, April showers bring May flowers! Unless you live in the desert and you haven't seen rain but once in six months, then you bake some! Plus as I've 100 times...the only green thumb I have comes from food coloring. Fact. So even if we weren't currently living in the desert, growing them isn't quiet an option! So I'm not exactly a gardener but I do love to bake up fruits, veggies, and ... [ read more... ]

Sunflower Cupcakes

It's really hard to believe "spring" is here. And not just because our friends and family all over the north are still seeing snow, our new location in the south has us questioning if there ever was a winter and feeling like it's summer already! I'm not so sure spring really exists here?? Although I don't miss the insane amounts of snow from the frozen tundra (aka upstate New York) I do miss that ... [ read more... ]

Flower Pot Cupcakes With Cookie Pop Flowers

I have another pretty little flower treat to share today! But first a little Thursday morning confession for you. These sweet little flower pot cupcakes we're meant to be shared weeks ago. Let's just say, they're late bloomers. Ha! Funny right? I know, I know stick with the baking ;) ....I purchased and planned these little cuties before Easter when these sweet little flower pot cupcake liners ... [ read more... ]

Mother’s Day Cupcake Bouquet

Mother's day is just a few weeks away, and what better way to say "Thanks Mom" then with some flowers? Flowers that just happen to double as cupcakes that is! A couple of weeks ago I posted the Pretty As A Daisy Cupcake Tutorial and I received lots of questions wondering how I assembled the cupcakes into a bouquet. So this week I baked up another bright and cheery bouquet so I could show ... [ read more... ]

Pretty As A Daisy Cupcakes

Surprise! I baked you some flowers! We still have snow up here in the frozen tundra, and the weather man says it's never ever going to stop. Well that's what I heard at least...so I thought some flowers would make it feel a bit more springy around here. However, I've never really been a fan of getting or giving real flowers, and I'm definitely not very good at growing them. Since the only green ... [ read more... ]
