A little Halloween trivia for y’all. Q: What’s red, black, and boozy all over? No, this is not a trick. The answer, however, IS a treat… A: These cupcakes! Congratulations, you cracked the code. But with chocolate, raspberry filling, and some crafty booze infusion, these could really be the answer to practically any question you ask. What, were you expecting […] Read more…

Baker Beware: Bourbon Pecan Pie Brownies

I always seem to conveniently forget that I like chocolate. That is, until something like these Bourbon Pecan Pie Brownies are plopped down in front of me in all their rich, gooey glory. In my defense, I usually do prefer other flavors to chocolate if given the option, but lately there’s just something about that rich depth of flavor […] Read more…

Peanut Butter Bacon Banana Birthday Cupcakes

Bacon. Everyone loves bacon. Bacon and peanut butter? That’s an even easier sell. Bacon, peanut butter, AND chocolate? Drop the mic’. You win baking. To say that my sweet friend Courtney loves bacon would be an understatement. A big one. I mean, the first time I met the girl she orchestrated a pit stop for the […] Read more…

Sailing out of Summer with Key Lime Cupcakes in Tow

There’s just something about being out on the water. It could be that it brings me back to my Florida roots and makes me feel at home. Or it could be that the wind and water have a way of reconnecting you with the world around you, reminding you that you’re a part of something bigger. Or it […] Read more…

Custom Order Kickoff: German Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes

Rich. Decadent. Sinfully delicious. It’s pretty fitting that I baked these bad boys on the heels of a trip to Vegas, because if Sin City had a cupcake – let me tell you – this would be it. There may not have been anything particularly “what happens in Vegas”-worthy about my time there (I was there speaking at a […] Read more…
