Baltimore Bride dishes on the WBAL segment

I had so much fun meeting Janelle, the Managing Editor of Baltimore Bride. Check out her blog post about our morning at WBAL here!

kara’s cakery on WBAL

This past week has been a whirlwind! Katey and Ashley of Lemon and Lime Event Design invited me to help them with a segment on WBAL on wedding cake alternatives. Not only to contribute some of those “alternatives” but to help design the table setupof dessert alternatives. We decided on the two alternatives that LLED […]

on my to-do/to-learn list

Now that the wedding stuff is done – I hope to get back to baking. Here are a few things on my to-do/to-learn how to-do list: These beautiful frosting daffodils – by i am baker  These incredible ombre cakes – and the little fondant butterflies – by glorious treats  Fancy icing flowers like these – by […]

thank you!

DRNA and myself thank you for your cake pop orders! I agreed to donate 10% of all Valentine cake pop orders and did so this morning. If you would like to donate too, please visit! Your donations help make it possible for volunteers to foster and place helpless doxies (like Pheebs) into loving homes.

thanksgiving apple pie

I made two desserts this year and both are worth sharing. The first is Pioneer Woman’s dreamy apple pie, but with a twist. And the twist is rum. What doesn’t rum make better? Any how, here’s the recipe: the REALLY dreamy apple pie adapted from PW’s recipe I’ve never tried her pie crust recipe, although […]

maybe one day…

I walk past this store front every time I go from work to the Daily Grind weekday mornings. It would be the PERFECT spot for Kara’s Cakery. Fell’s Point doesn’t have a stand-out cupcake/cake shop. I’m secretly hoping I get a call one day from someone with more money than they know what to do […]

white chocolate macadamia nut cookies

However, I am fond of them. Fun fact #2) These are the best white chocolate macadamia nut cookies I’ve ever had in my life. […]

rosette birthday cake

I came across this gorgeous cake on I Am Baker and decided I’d try it the next time I made a cake – look how simple but pretty this is – all you need is a 1M open star-tip. … and you can put a flower on a sugar cookie for a lovely but easy […]

guilty pleasure: party of two

Valentine’s Day.. a fancy ending to a home-cooked meal… It’s our guilty pleasure. 27 days until vacation and we’ve vowed to get in bathing-suit shape. However we decided to splurge tonight. I made Pasta Puttanesca for dinner – a relatively healthy dinner. But decided on our favorite dessert to end a wonderful weekend! Copy down […]

rainbow sprinkles

I love rainbow sprinkles. They just remind me of being little and making cupcakes. I made a cake for our intern and used a whole bottle! The cake was my original white cake recipe. Sean’s favorite flavors were strawberry and banana. So I altered my raspberry filling recipe to create a strawberry filling. Easy enough, […]
