To the Nines: CakeSpy's Sweetest Moments of 2009

Goodbye, 2009!

Dear 2009,

You've been, like, the sweetest year ever! We've had some sugar-filled fun times together, ranging from Renegade Cake Parties to delicious trompe l'oeil treats. But before we trade you in for a cake-filled 2010, let's take a sugary stroll down memory lane to recall some of the most delicious CakeSpy experiences of the past year. Truly, 2009, you are 2 GOOD + 2 B  = 4 GOTTEN!

Taking it to the Sweet
The streets of Seattle got a lot sweeter with this feel-good cupcake art installation;

Petites Bouchees
Petites Bouchées Macarons induced a serious mac attack;

We delved into the secret lives of bakers...

Cookie Sandwich
A car crashed into CakeSpy headquarters, but we got cookies out of the deal;

Rolling Scones
Sweets rocked with a collection of rock n roll-inspired cakes and pastries;

Cake from Freeds in Las Vegas, C/O Not Martha
We learned how to successfully elope to Las Vegas and have our wedding cake too;

Red Velvet Cake from Kingfish Cafe, Seattle
The Red Velvet Cake from Kingfish Cafe was indeed legendary (and so was the Hummingbird Cake!)

We created something so beautiful, the world let out a collective sigh of awe and longing: the S'moreo;

"Rocky Rose" ice cream
Poppy pastry chef Dana Cree's desserts continued to amaze;

Houdini Bars
We escaped from cake mix mediocrity with the Cake Mix Doctor's Houdini Bar recipe;

Grilled Cheesecake Sandwich
Grilled cheesecake sandwich. Need I say more?

Huckleberry bar
A blissful huckleberry bar cookie was discovered at a Montana rest stop;

Little Debbie Death Match
We, like, totally killed some Little Debbie Cakes;

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bar, Ciao for Now, NYC
Ciao For Now offered up an absolutely tantalizing peanut butter and jelly bar;

Halloween Treats!
Some said these babies were too sweet, but I said "more for me" and finished the entire pan...

Colossal Crumb Cake
The only regret about the colossal crumb cake from Ocean Grove Bake Shop is that it had to end;

Cranberry walnut bar, Alliance Bakery, Chicago
At the Alliance Bakery in Chicago, the Cranberry Walnut Bar offered sweet, tart, and totally rich flavor;

Pumpkin Banana Mousse Tart with homemade brandy whipped cream
Combining Ina Garten and Tom Douglas recipes resulted in awesomeness (oh, and pie) squared;

Piggie loves Apple Pie Bars
Caramel apple pie bars for those who don't like fruit to invade on their streusel-and-crust experience;

Cookie Cake Pie
And of course, who could forget the #1 most popular CakeSpy post of 2009--we all got a little fatter (but happier too) with the advent of the Age of the Cookie Cake Pie.

We just discovered cakespy a few days ago. My 12 year-old daughter and I spent a few hours looking at Cuppie pictures. Cuppie is now the inspiration for her bedroom make-over. We are so excited to plan our custom print order. Thank you for something precious to share with her.
