spooky cake pops

We crumbled up the yellow cake, added some cream cheese frosting and shaped some candy corns, square monster heads and [...]

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 [...]

halloween treats

I always love this time of year because you can decorate cupcakes and cakes with all kinds of spooky treats like spiders, rats etc. And spider webs are so easy to make! You just ice your cake/cupcakes with chocolate icing, pipe on a few circles (inside each other) and then run a knife from the [...]

Needless to say, I am very passionate about the cause and spent several hours raising money [...]

cake balls!

No.. they aren’t truffles, nor are they chocolate covered cherries. They are the newest fad in cake making. Tiny, chocolate or candy covered bite-sized cake pieces! I’ve known about these little desserts for awhile, but never thought anything of them. Turns out, the cupcake fad is deteriorating as quickly as it started and cake balls [...]
