Mississippi Mud Cake

how to make a mississippi mud cake

I am a huge fan of Mississippi Mud Cakes, Brownies, Bars and Pies.  I love anything that has marshmallow cream in it and topped with the decadent Mississippi Mud icing!  When I came across this picture at Taste of Home I just had to make it the same day!  All I can say is “YUM!”

Caramel Cake – My New Favorite Cake!

how to make a caramel cake

 

I am absolutely swooning over this cake.  It is 5 star all the way.  And easy….so easy.  Once you make it I guarantee you’ll make it over and over again.

This recipe was mentioned in an Oprah magazine as the best caramel cake ever and I certainly agree.  The recipe comes from Danielle’s Desserts in Washington D.C.  The only thing I changed is I swapped out the whole milk originally called for in the cake recipe with buttermilk.  I almost always do that – it makes a much moister and flavorful cake.

Springtime Cookies and Cupcakes

I don’t know about you, but once Valentine’s Day is over, I start dreaming about and planning for SPRING!  I also start feeling like trying something new and making fun projects with my kids.  It’s probably a “getting past winter” surge or something.  Anyway, I thought I’d start collecting some fun spring cookie recipes and tutorials for cookies(cupcakes too!). And of course, I’m sharing them with YOU!

From Martha Stewart, Spring Cupcakes with Sugared Flowers… oh yes!  Make sure you click through the links in the post to learn how to make sugar flowers (so easy!).


From my favorite cookie maker, Sweet Sugar Belle… check out these Sweet Little Lamb Cookies.  This is actually a guest post on her site from Marian of Sweetopia.  Both Sugar Belle and Sweetopia write the best tutorials, and they really make me believe I can do this!

 

Found these adorable Spring Flower Cupcake Cones on an OC blog… love the idea, and I can think of lots of variations for using the cones as flower pots! She gives step by step instructions and photos on how to make flower cupcakes.

Check out the super cute Spring Cookies from Pink Little Cake, using fondant instead of icing… I KNOW I can do these!

Aren’t you in the mood for SPRING now??
