    pistachio cream cupcakes

    Greetings! Happy Spring! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! If you’ve been following me for a few years, this might look a little familiar. The only difference is that this time I’m making them look more like cupcakes, so I’m not calling them Moss Muffins, lol. But yeah, you could say I have a fondness for moss.…

    funfetti cupcakes

    Since Ben and I both have birthdays this week within days of each other, and since we’ve not had anything funfetti before, I decided to make a small batch of simple vanilla cupcakes with jimmies, the type of sprinkles most often recommended for funfetti cakes. They were a dollar off for a package at the…

    coffee & cream cupcakes

    I initially set out to make a loaf cake but somehow it morphed into these cupcakes! Funny how that happens, huh? Ha! Anyway, it’s been a while since I made a batch of cupcakes, and so I decided to go all out with them and stuff them in the middle with coffee whipped cream, which…

    impeachment cakes

    Happy July! Given that we’ve had Idiot-in-chief in the White House for the last few years, (Yes, I refuse to refer to him as President), I’ve started posting what I call protest cakes for the 4th of July. Because to protest is patriotic. (Of course, now that I post just once a month, I post…

    impeachment cakes

    Since last year’s Russiagate Cake with Impeachment Frosting went over so well, for this year’s Independence Day, I decided to continue with an impeachment theme. I call these imp cakes, because they are just a tad smaller than the size of standard cupcakes. I decided to make my imp cakes of the peach-mint variety. Get it? Imp…

    Pistachio Green Tea Moss Muffins

    With the advent of spring soon to be upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, we are already witnessing the burgeoning greenery around us here in the Seattle area! So I thought it would be fitting to make something that could blend in easily with the surroundings. This muffin is sort of my homage to Seattle, a city also…

    matcha blackberry friands, vegan

    A friand is a small almond cake, similar to French financiers. In fact,  friand literally means “a tasty thing” in French. They are popular in Australia and New Zealand. The main ingredients for both friand and financier are almond flour, brown butter, icing sugar, and egg whites, but a friand often has additional ingredients and flavors…

    Has it really been four years!?

    Because it’s been a little over four years since starting this blog, I wanted to share with you my favorite posts. I should clarify that these are my favorites, not necessarily favorites in terms of post clicks, numbers, or even in being popular among people in my life. Because that’s what it’s all about! It’s all…

    coffee chocolate chip muffins

    I’m currently at home dealing with something. I called in sick. I was telling people it was a cold, but now I’m not so sure. I feel like sneezing, and I sneeze sometimes, but other times, it’s just the feeling of wanting to sneeze, not the actual act. It’s frustrating. Whatever it is, I hope…
