Chocolate Mousse Layer Cake


Hope all of you had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend. Well, all of you that celebrate it that is. Hope the rest of you had a fabulous weekend anyway, even if you weren’t stuffing your faces with turkey, rolls, and pie. I sure enjoyed my little blogging break spending time with family. But now I am […]

Cinnamon Swirl Pound Cake


I thought for sure I would have my kitchen cabinets done by now. But like most DIY projects, this one is taking longer than anticipated. Especially because a certain 18 month old is too hard to resist, and I have to take frequent story reading breaks. Until my major DIY cabinet makeover is finished, I […]

Peanut Butter Sheet Cake


I may have mentioned this before, but boy howdy have we gotten a lot of rain here in Utah. And I mean A LOT! I’m pretty sure this is the rainiest May that we have ever had in the history of living. The entire holiday weekend was cold and wet. Instead of a BBQ, we […]

Oreo Cake


My 10 year old is going through a “chocolate phase”.  He has declared that he only likes desserts that have chocolate in them. I thought that was just for us ladies, but apparently not. 😉 Since he has declared his abiding love for all things chocolate, of course he wanted a chocolate cake for his […]

Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake with peanut butter frosting and Reese's peanut butter cups

I mentioned that I made this Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake a few months ago for my son’s birthday, but totally forgot to post the recipe. Thanks to Kellie, who left a comment on my Facebook page, reminding me. If you like chocolate and peanut butter like we do at our house, you have got to […]

Carrot Pineapple Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

I’m not sure why it is, but carrot cake just seems to go with Easter. I guess it’s because carrots remind us of bunnies. Or something like that. I don’t know, but that’s okay, I’ll eat carrot cake for Easter even if it makes no sense at all. Because it is dang good stuff! This […]

Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake

I made this yummy chocolate mint bundt cake for Christmas Eve dinner. You know, the night when the card on my camera wasn’t in all the way and none of my pictures turned out. Trust me, it made a beautiful presentation. But all I have is a picture of a leftover piece the next day. […]

Almond Sheet Cake


My amazing hubbie turned 40 yesterday. We invited the whole neighborhood over for cake and ice cream. It was a really fun evening even though we had to move the party inside because of the dang wind. I made three kinds of cake: chocolate with pecans, almond, and lime. My awesome cousin brought another chocolate […]
