Neapolitan Cake 1 - A Neapolitan Layer Cake made with love using KitchenAid [VIDEO]

I cannot believe this is the first time I made a layer cake this year. The funny thing is I didn’t even notice! To make up for lost time I’ve decided to make a Neapolitan Layer Cake, which is basically a white cake, a strawberry cake, and a chocolate cake stacked into a single colourfully …

Simple birthdays and lemon cakes with chocolate

I’ve never really been the sort for extravagant celebrations, not especially since the void created by my grandma’s death is still a bit fresh.

What is the punishment for forgetting your blogiversary, I wonder. Do you get banned from tasting your future creations, or get cursed with really bad food photographs? I certainly hope not! Well, I started my blog on the 5th of February last year (World Nutella Day too apparently), but all this time, I thought it …

A cake to match a relationship of epic proportions

My brother Jason and I have a love-hate relationship that reaches to the extremes of the Universe. So epic is it in fact, that during the times we absolutely hate each other, I would go so far as to give him the silent treatment for weeks at a time and completely ignore his existence. And …

{Dearly Dreaming Dorie} A Black and White birthday cake for Papa

I don’t tend to say it out loud, but I like going out of my way to do things for my Dad, big or small. That’s why despite having zero experience and practice in making real layer cakes, I stubbornly pushed through with this one. I wanted to make him a birthday cake. A few …
