Vanilla Cupcakes

Vanilla Cupcakes

This past weekend I wanted to bake.  I usually reach for the chocolate recipes but this time I wanted a rich, moist vanilla cupcake with buttercream frosting.  Three hours later I had these to feast upon. I love this recipe for it’s simplicity and rich flavor.  It’s a good basic starter for anyone new to […]

A few years ago, Nany and I were shopping at a local thrift store and I found this pan.  It was marked with Duncan Hines and Ekco so I turned to Nan and asked if she had ever seen this pan before.  She explained (because Nany Knows) that it was a pan given to customers […]

Apple Tart Cake

Make Your Cake

Make Your Cake

I am sure you are thinking, ‘Hey Amy!  I make my own cake all the time’.  I am referring to the assembly of the cake, guests choosing what flavor cake they want with what flavor frosting.  I love to make several flavors of cakes, cut them into pieces and serve unfrosted.  Then next to the […]

Lemon-Raspberry Layer Cake

Lemon-Raspberry Layer Cake

Last weekend I spent time in PA with my family celebrating my brother’s 40th (ahem) birthday.  My sister-in-law, Trish, made this fabulous cake and I asked her if she would share on Friday’s Friends.  Trish is a great sister (in-law), mother and wife.  She gives me a run for my money each time we step […]
