Happy Birthday Hubbie!

For my husband’s birthday, I made his childhood favorite: chocolate zucchini cake. Traditionally baked as a 9 x 13 cake, I opted to use a spring form pan to up the display factor. It tastes just as good as the original recipe! Love ya babe!

Chocolate Cherry Chip Transformer Cake

My friend Cavan planned a surprise birthday party for his husband Scott’s 30th birthday. He said Scott liked these things in relation to cake: chocolate, cherry and transformers. So, we made it work with chocolate cherry-chip cake and chocolate buttercream! The party included a rolling surprise of friends and family throughout the evening and a ride on a old-time fire truck throughout St. Paul with the Vulkans. What a great birthday surprise.

Lindsey’s Triple Chocolate Cake

Lindsey “likes” to check out all of the treats I make via my facebook page and insisted on a custom cake for her 8th birthday party. She was pretty hands-on when it came to designing her cake, and it was fun to have such creative input! This is chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, with a layer of milk chocolate chips in the middle. Happy Birthday Lindsey!

Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

I tempted my coworkers into a meeting at work with treats, and was feeling kind of nutty when picking out which recipes to make. Their reward for attending tomorrow’s meeting: a choice of Salted Caramel Cashew or Peanut Chocolate Chip  & Oatmeal cookies. Which would you choose?
