Baker's Dozen: A Batch of Sweet Links

US map cake

Another week is over--let's make this weekend totally sweet, starting with some links for your viewing pleasure:

Pop-'ems: was recommended by a reader, and after checking out their site, I sure wish I could pop one of those in my mouth.

More things to Pop: Marshmallow Popcorn balls sound mighty nice.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles: All of my favorite food groups, all at once!

Float On: A new trend for 2011--floats (root beer, and more exotic) at dessert tables? I like the idea of that!

Jammin': Bet this Clementine Marmalade Jam would taste great on biscuits or in thumbprint cookies.

Forget-me-Knots: Sweet Love Knot Cookies.

Get Baked: In case you missed the news, BAKED now has brownie mixes at Williams-Sonoma!

America the Sweet: I am impressed by this Map of the USA cake. (pictured top)

Who knew? Arkansas is a sort of "Rice Belt" in the US. I'm intrigued by this recipe I found for "Riceland Pudding With Butterscotch Nut Sauce".

Beer...and candy...together? That's right: Beercandy.

Funfetti Cake Batter Dip? Thanks for the recipe, sister from another mister.

Looking for a delicious King Cake? Last year we sampled Sucre's great version, and highly suggest it.

Playing with Cupcakes is more Fun than Work: Yup, it's true, and here's a game to prove it.
