I am pretty simple. I usually bake what I love to eat. (which is a curse and blessing at the same time)

I love chocolate chip cookie recipes. I could try a new one with a new twist everyday. I also love baking cupcakes and love searching for the next best cupcake when I am out at local cafe's and bakeries.

What is your favorite baked good or dessert to make?
I love to make cheesecake with the oreo or graham cracker crust and fruit topping. It takes some time, but its huge and gorgeous and totally worth it when I see people's faces.
What is your favorite baked good or dessert to eat?
So silly, but I love to eat stale, soft oreos (leftovers from the cheesecake). They taste like they were already dipped in milk. Eating 4 plus is easy.

I love to bake cupcakes, pies and cookies. Those are all my favorites to eat too!

I like to bake fruit pies, especially in the summer. And I LOVE to eat chocolate cake, especially if it has a bit of vanilla in it!

Favorite baked good/dessert to MAKE: Cake's! I love making cakes using my Cake Dr. Cookbook where you make them using a boxed cake mix as the dry ingredients and ADD TONS OF COOL stuff to them. Our favorite is the SNickerdoodle cake! OMG.

Favorite Baked good/dessert to EAT: Creme'Brulee' - I could eat that all the time. It's my all time favorite dessert.

I like to bake cupcakes and cakes - love to do the icing and make them pretty.

I like to eat pie - mmmmm apple pie, peach pie - all kinds of pie. But I've never actually MADE a pie. Need to get on that.

I pretty much only bake what I love to eat. Yummy creative and different ingredients in cupcakes. Of course they don't always come out as yummy as I planned in my head, but that is the fun part of playing with ingredients.
I love baking cupcakes and cookies and cakes for people I love on their birthdays.

I love to make cake! But I LOVE to eat ICE CREAM! It makes me weak!

My favorite baked good to make it any type of fresh fruit pie, such a satisfying and calming experience. I'm pretty sure my favorite to eat is cheesecake, although the baking of that can be frustrating.

I like to bake cupcakes and eat them. I also love to bake and eat cheesecake!

My favorite dessert to MAKE is cupcakes. They are so cute and fun!

My favorite dessert to EAT is... cupcakes as well. They are the perfect size to satisfy a craving without overdoing it.

I bake what I like to eat, which changes frequently.

Love Nigella Lawson's Honeybee Cake and Chocolate Gingerbread; both are pretty rich, but very simple to throw together. Love chiffon and angel food cakes with icing. Love cookies of all sorts.

I don't think I've ever attempted baking something that didn't appeal to my palate!

My favorite baked good to make would be cheesecake. It is a lot of work, but when everyone is enjoying it, they truly appreciate all the hard work it took to have such a yummy treat.

What is my favorite thing to eat... that's a hard one, I love almost anything sweet. I could eat cake, pie, cookies, anything. I do love to have cake though, there is just something about it. I could eat it anyday.

I love anything sweet and usually end up baking chocolate based things like chocolate cupcakes, filled with chocolate filling, and chocolate icing. As far as buying, I don't normally purchase (as I can make it myself ; - ) but when I do it's always the vegan chocolate cupcakes and vegan chocolate tort from Whole Foods...yummmmmmmmmm. I could eat the entire tort in one sitting it's so good ; - )

I love to make cookies and I love to eat frosting...and cookies. :)

I will be a cake lover til the day I die. I love eating all kinds and I love making them too. A perfectly iced cake is such eye candy.

July 1 | Unregistered CommenterEliana

This is so difficult! I love to bake and eat almost anything! But I guess I've been reaching for the pie supplies lately, so I'll claim that that's my favorite -- for now!

My favorite thing to bake is cupcakes. But my favorite thing to eat is cookies... so simple and addicting!

July 1 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

I love to bake poundcake, cheesecake and cookies. And anything else that pops in my brain. I love to eat fruit pie and angel food cake. Those are my faves. Not a big fan of fancy, dye laden frosting, so I usuallly skip regular cake!

2 questions 1 answer :P

What I bake is what I love to eat! I think bars are my favorite--not only do I get joy out of making delicious treats, but I love when others drool over it!! Peanut butter chocolate bars are generally the winner...

a) I like cookies, as they require the least amount of work, in my opinion. I admit to sometimes using stuff from a box, because I am THAT lazy and without shame;

b) cupcakes. Obvs.

* What is your favorite baked good or dessert to make? I love making cupcakes! You can't go wrong, they're always cute even if they're an absolute mess.
* What is your favorite baked good or dessert to eat? I like to eat brownies and cupcakes but I never say no to a dessert (my waistline would agree with this)
