the competition: IcedGems Creations

Word travels fast when the IcedGems truck pulls up out front here in Baltimore. Sometimes we get an email, other times a co-worker comes up with a clear plastic container of the colorfully decorated desserts. And on days like today, you come back from lunch to find a cupcake personally delivered from a co-worker who feels the […]

german chocolate cupcakes

Remember this recipe of delicious goodness? Well, my good friends of Lemon and Lime needed a German chocolate cake for cutting at a wedding. Que the go-to recipe. But it was only a 5” cake, so I used the remaining ingredients to make these lovely little morsels. I packaged them up and took them to […]

I tried making angel food cupcakes in hopes of a sweet but lower calorie breakfast treat, but working with angel food is much harder than I imagined. Angel food cake is essentially a powdered sugar mix slowly added to a […]
