Milky Way Martini Cupcakes

Milky Way Martini Cupcakes

Happy Halloween! It’s the time of year where everyone has a bunch of candy laying around. Either from over preparing for trick-or-treaters, kids who went trick-or-treating, or you just plan to partake in all the post halloween candy sales that’ll be happening tomorrow. Candy abounds. These milky way martini cupcakes not only utilize that candy, but they give you a perfect way to unwind post halloween (by taking a shot of a milky way martini) These cupcakes aren’t meant for kids, since they’re pretty alcoholic. There’s a cup of alcohol…

Blackberry Bramble Cake (Blackberry, Lemon and Gin Cake)

Blackberry Bramble Cake (Blackberry, Lemon and Gin Cake)

A Blackberry Bramble is such a refreshing summer drink. It’s made with blackberries, lemon and gin and is light, refreshing, fruity and delicious. And given the surplus of blackberries I currently had from the farmer’s market, I thought why not bake this into a delicious summer take on a rum cake, a blackberry bramble cake. As a base I used Sweet Pea’s Kitchen‘s rum cake recipe and got rid of the rum, instead using gin, adding lemon zest, lemon juice and mashed blackberries, then folding in chopped blackberries and changing…

Stuffed Beer Cheese Pretzel Bites

Stuffed Beer Cheese Pretzel Bites

Yesterday, everyone in the office brought in like, every left over sweet from memorial day parties. So after the 3rd “there’s a cake in the kitchen” email, I realized I needed to make something nice and savory for tea time today. I’ve been wanting to make these stuffed beer cheese pretzel bites for a while, because love love love pretzels. And really what’s better than a beer pretzel stuffed with beer cheese? Tasty actually made some of these recently. Of course they’re not beer pretzels, but they’re an easier, faster…

Baileys Twinkies

Baileys Twinkies

So the other day, someone brought Twinkies into the office and someone suggested that I make Baileys Twinkies. So here we are. I will say, it took a long time to develop this recipe and I’ve basically been covered in chocolate for two weeks straight, so despite the fact that these really are delicious, this post may not be super enthusiastic about how delicious these are. I swear they are delicious, and despite having a lot of steps, they come together fairly quickly. Don’t be intimidated by them. If you’re…

White Russian Parfait Shots

White Russian Parfait Shots

A White Russian is my mother’s drink of choice and since Sunday was mother’s day, I wanted to make something inspired by her. So I made white russian parfait shots! Don’t be fooled by the picture – you absolutely do not want to eat a whole mason jar’s worth, because they’re super rich. These are perfect to serve up in shot glasses at a party/bachelorette part/wedding/a college party/you know, basically whenever. They really do pack a punch. These have three layers, a Coffee Liqueur cheesecake mousse, a white russian pudding, topped…

Baked Margarita Donuts

Baked Margarita Donuts

It’s May! Which means Cinco de Mayo is coming up! Cinco de Mayo to me basically means my birthday’s in two days! But for the rest of the USA it basically means Margaritas. Two years ago I made some delicious Margarita Cupcakes, but this year I wanted to try something different, and I’ve had some Donut Pans sitting around for a while – so I decided to make some baked margarita donuts! Memphis has this thing with donuts. We have 2 of the best donut establishments ever. Gibson’s donuts, which Alton Brown loves,…

Drunken Spiced Rum Pumpkin Cupcakes

Drunken Spiced Rum Pumpkin Cupcakes

Happy almost Halloween! To celebrate I’ve made some BOOzy cupcakes! Drunken spiced rum pumpkin cupcakes But seriously, when I say these are drunken, I don’t mean there’s a bit of alcohol that bakes off and you can’t even taste it, I mean these are drunken. Deliciously, deliciously drunken. I made two batches and used up all the rum I intended to drink at the party I was heading too. But they’re delicious. You can for sure taste the spiced rum and the pumpkin and the Marshmallow frosting pairs with it…

Cheese-y Beer Bread

Cheese-y Beer Bread

A friend at work and I have implemented Tea Time. Which basically means every Wednesday one of us will bake something and we’ll put out a kettle with tea and tell the office to take a break for 5 minutes and eat and have tea. It’s very cute and a nice thing to do to break up a Wednesday. So it was my turn to make something and I wanted the easiest thing possible to make and turns out this was it. Cheese-y, green oniony, beer bread from here. I made…
