So I’ve actually never been on the back of a motorcycle. Or the front of one, for that matter. I think they’re crazy dangerous and they scare me. But I still fantasize about being on one.
How about some late love on this lovely Thursday?
Sure, the day has kicked my fanny, and I’m just posting. So I thought I’d extend myself a little chocolate grace. So here is a cupcake. For you. And for me.
Isn’t this lovely? And get a load of the ab fab flav – it’s a chocolate chili cupcake with Mexican hot chocolate buttercream. ¡Ay, caramba!
And as if that weren’t enough, the fondant placket on top shows Read More
I’m not feeling very subtle today. So I went in search of a cake that would set Brooke convention (you know, beachy, classic, pearls, blah blah blah) on its head. And this is what I found.
Isn’t this stunning? Bands of different red hues encircle an otherwise simple three-tiered round cake. A band of white is added on the top and bottom layers for contrast, and the whole thing is trimmed out in Read More
It’s beachy, and it’s sea glass blue and green. That makes it perfect.
Now, while I wouldn’t put actual starfish on a wedding cake, these gumpaste buddies are just the thing. The cool colors – all greens and blues and hues in between – are some of my favorite, evoking water and calm…two things that speak to me in soft, soothing tones. The wonky ginormous bottom layer – is triple height the new Read More
And so, it is upon us. That time of year that Floridians hate the most. While the rest of you are flaunting your about-to-dip-into-crispness temperature, we continue to swelter.

Oh my, but the autumn bug has officially bitten in this household! Oh, sure. There’s some summer fun left here, and we’re still wearing shorts and all, but it’s actually been, well, NOT hotter than the hinges of Read More
I’m feelin’ fall, y’all.
Blame it on all the back to school pics. My sweet girl went back last week, but just about everyone in my circle – far and wide – have seen their kids off to the school bus by this point. And so begins the yearning for crisp, cool weather that never comes where I live.
Well, if I can’t have Read More
Don’t you just want to grab a cup of coffee or a glass of ice cold milk and dig right into this baby?
Lots of cakes that we feature are all about the looks. And so often, I almost can’t imagine cutting into them because of the hours and hours of work they took to make. But this cake invites you to get comfortable and cut a big ole’ slab!
If I had to guess (and I do, since I know not who made the cake or what the flavors are) I would say that we have here layers of Read More
