Baker's Dozen: A Batch of Sweet Links!

I love this cake stand series. No, that pony is not a unicorn, but close. PS: the seller, Culinary Surfer, was so pleased with my share that they gave me (and my readers, you!) a discount code: CS1 for 10 percent off. 

Chocolate cookies made with...mustard??

Woot! Thank you to Parade Magazine for featuring my brilliant ideas for leftover Easter candy.

My favorite facebook page, possibly ever.

Not literally sweet, but definitely totally sweet: my tips for making perfect quiche.

Croissant french toast with strawberry syrup. Outta sight!

I think I'd like to try this chocolate tres leches cake recipe.

How to make gummi candies at home.

Adorable "keep off the grass" cake. Striking and whimsical--I like it!

Cotton candy cupcakes: still a fave.

Yoga cookie cutters: so cute!

Banana chocolate chip crumb cake

Still (as always) perfect and delicious: chocolate chip cookies from Baked: New Frontiers in Baking.

Book of the week: A Cake Lover's Recipe Notebook. A fun new spin on the expected cake book, this is part guide book, part recipe book, and notebook. It's separated into tabbed sections ("posh cakes", "little cakes", etc) and is wire bound with sections for notes, and this also makes the pages lie flat, which I love. Plus, the photos are beautifully styled, so it's fun to look at even while you're not baking.

New Card!

I'm selling ALL of my old card styles! Buy them while they still last! I will have one more sale when I clean out my storage unit in July, but I can't guarantee how many cards I will have then.

A review: La Boulange pastries at Starbucks.

Sweet memories: Velveeta Fudge!

A primer on gluten-free flours for baking.

It made me so happy to read that this "desserts in moderation" article tells you to run like hell from fat free stuff (I am paraphrasing, of course).

Book of the week: 

Repast: Dining Out at the Dawn of the New American Century, 1900-1910. I can't put down this book about dining out in the early 1900s. It's fascinating to read about the foodies from the age before Julia Child, Craig Claiborne, and Ruth Reichl. Of particular interest is reading about how restaurants prided themselves on being innovators, both with recipes and with technology. If you're interested in the history of food, this is a must-read.
