I made cake truffles today. I wasn’t going to put them on the blog (so I didn’t really take any pictures) but Alex insisted. The easiest thing to make and assemble and it’s his favorite. It’s also a great way to show off sprinkles. It’s September now so I used my autumn leaf sprinkles and orange and yellow sparkle gels.

I got married in Knoxville in the Smoky Mountains last Saturday and I finally got to see my cupcake tower! I loved it. It was so simple and the cupcakes tasted amazing. Tony easily makes the best cupcakes in Knoxville. They were moist, fluffy and the frosting was just devine.

I have really great friends. They took me to the designer tea at The Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge as part of my Hen/Bachlorette weekend. I love the tea here because each piece is creative and really cute and they also keep bringing out more until you tell them to stop!
The cakes are in the colors of the fashion season and inspired by the world’s finest designers!

It tasted very rich and fruity. I thought the cream cheese was a little strong. I might make a mascarpone version or a baked version to compare the flavor.

4th of July Layer Cake

I have the best mom she sent me 4th of July sprinkles and whatever else they had at wal-mart. We celebrated one day early.

I made a very large roast chicken and all the trimmings for Easter lunch today and this light fluffy orange cake was perfect for after.

I got this recipe from “McCall’s Cooking School” Cookbook. I bought it at a used book event at the mall in Pittsburgh. It’s not quite angel food cake as it has egg yolks but it is very light. Make sure to separate the egg whites and egg yolks into separate bowls.
