Red Velvet Cake {Bioshock Infinite Cake}


Last week was a good friend’s birthday.

I thought pretty hard about how I wanted to decorate his cake.

I knew it had to be geeky.

Last year, the theme was The Dresden Files.

After a lot of hemming and hawing, I decided to make a Bioshock Infinite cake (if you’re unfamiliar, Bioshock Infinite is a video game).  I’ve never played Bioshock myself (I’m kind of a video game dunce), but I’ve watched Hubs play and heard him and Dan discuss the game…extensively!

Open Bible Confirmation Cake


I made this cake for my neighbor’s confirmation.

We decided to make a bible cake, but without the stereotypical ugly flowers since it was for a boy.

Abstract Peacock Cake



When my in-laws were visiting last month, I made a birthday cake for my Mother-in-law.

I had full creative freedom on this one (that rarely happens!!)  So I searched through my Pinterest boards for my own inspiration!



I ended up choosing a pretty peacock cake (inspiration found here at Cake Central!)  I just love peacock feathers (in fact peacock feathers are a big part of my office d├ęcor!)

4th of July Flag Cookies


Happy July!!

Can’t you believe it’s almost the 4th?

This year, I decided to make some easy flag cookies! (See my inspiration here and here)

To make these I split a batch of sugar cookie dough in 3 parts, one (for the red) slightly bigger than the others.  One part was left alone and the others were tinted red and blue with gel food coloring.

After that, I rolled the red and white dough thin, cut them in strips with a pizza cutter and started stacking!  After the long and short red and white strips were stacked, I rolled the blue into a long log and used a knife to cut it into a square shape and place it.

Snickers Cupcakes


Do you have a favorite candy?

I rotate between a few different ones, but I always find myself coming back to Snickers.

So why not add them to cupcakes??

Chocolate Covered Banana Cupcakes

This post first appeared on my original blog, Amy's Cooking Adventures in April 2013



Sometimes it's fun to play with unusual cupcake flavor combinations!

I just love chocolate & bananas, so I decided to bring those two together in a cupcake!

The cupcake itself is reminiscent of banana bread, only lighter and a touch sweeter.

Cupcakes weren’t the only thing I made with this recipe!  I’ll give you a sneak peek…


…but you’ll have to click on over to my other blog, Amy’s Confectionery Adventures to get all the details!

60th Birthday Golf Cake & Cookies


This year was my Dad’s 60th birthday!

For such a milestone birthday, I knew I needed to make a cake, even if I did need to transport it almost 300 miles!

And since his birthday gift from the family was a nice set of left handed golf clubs, I naturally decided to make a golf cake!
