Strawberry Dream Cake

Strawberry Dream Cake

I kept hoping September would be hot and I’d get to do a little more swimming in the lake, especially since I got some wild swim shoes or water shoes or whatever they’re called! I waited and waited for them and now it’s cool. There’s no denying fall is in the air, and right on time this year and I’m already thinking about pears and apples. In the meantime, though, I’m pulling out one last summer hurrah. I’m breaking out with this Strawberry Dream Cake.

Raspberry filled Vanilla Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.

Raspberry Filled Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream

These are luscious in the best possible way! Perfect with pink sprinkles for Valentines, but just as good anytime!!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is often thought of as the day we celebrate our sweetheart. Flowers, chocolate, cards and cupcakes are all appropriate. Yeah, see how I worked that Cupcake in? Slick, huh? In my defense, this is a Raspberry Filled Cupcake topped with Carlee’s White Chocolate Buttercream. It’s not to be missed.

Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread

This Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread has become a new fave at our house - maybe at yours, too?

I love that Quick Breads just seem to scream “good home cooking” don’t you? They’re great for all kinds of occasions: when company is dropping by, for brunch, or maybe to take to the office or to a family who needs a bit of a boost. This would make anyone feel better, at least while they’re eating it!

Swiss Meringue Frosting

When I saw Jennifer Shae of Trophy Cupcakes use this Swiss Meringue on her S’more Cupcakes on Martha Stewart, I wasn’t taking any issue that she called this “Marshmallow Frosting.” I was more interested that it toasted so beautifully and tastes soooo good!

Boston Cream Pie

Boston Cream Pie

Oh my gosh - that custard filling!!

For years I made Boston Cream Pie on Valentine’s Day for my kids. I loved putting little chocolate hearts around the edge of the cake and I loved that it had such a gorgeous old fashioned look with the glaze dripping down and the custard peeping out. It reminded me of those cakes that Yogi Bear stole along with the Pahnicanic baskets.

Wayside Inn Carrot Cake

Wayside Inn Carrot Cake - a gorgeous carrot cake with a fine, cakelike texture.

I haven’t been posting much on this blog; I stopped in to see my Dad, Chuck and Step Mom, Pat, in early June and basically never left…so for this summer at least, I’ve traded in my city life in the Twin Cities for a small town in South Dakota. Quite a shocker but we’re making do and working things through and having a pretty good time as we do so.
