Happy Holidays! It’s official, let the baking frenzy begin. I hope you enjoy your time in the kitchen this time of year as much as I do. I have such fun making lists and baking plans for the celebrations. Of course my list is always much bigger than what I could ever accomplish, but never the less this is a fun holiday ritual and making my baking list is part of the fun. [Read more…]
‘Tis the season and one that I adore–apples, apples and more apples. They are everywhere and seem to be multiplying quickly. The crisp, sweet taste of a red jewel or the sensation of cider on the tip of your tongue produces life long memories.
It was fun to reminiscence about days gone by and share the recipe for Stephenson’s Apple Fritters on the Kansas City Chowtown Blog. Be sure and check out my new favorite spot for delicious cider and cinnamon sugar apple donuts on the Kansas City Chowtown Blog. Once you have cider and apple butter in your stash, I hope you will consider making these Apple Cider Cupcakes. We shared these on our blog before, but they definitely have earned a repeat performance. We have served these sweet morsels at many a public event with rave reviews. [Read more…]
Outside is calling. It is time to dine outside and pack a picnic. Visit the Chow Town Blog, of the Kansas City Star, for our post on picnics, with lots of tips to make the packing simple. Now, what sounds good to eat? Glamorous picnics are captured in slick photos, but so many picnics are the grab-and-go variety. Yet even if you race to the picnic table, the food need not be boring. How about some new ideas? [Read more…]
Home is comforting —but the new sights we saw, friends we made and tastes we experienced the last couple of weeks shine brightly for us! While, we typically share the latest dish cooking in one of our kitchens—today, we want to share two exciting culinary treats that just happened to come one right after the other. [Read more…]
What fun we had this week when we were invited to appear on KSHB’s KCLive TV show. In case you missed it, you can watch it now and share in the fun.
It is always a treat to be on television but it is magnified when we get to talk about cake pops and our newest cookbook, The Big Book of Babycakes Cake Pop Maker recipes.
We adore Michael and Michelle and the folks at Channel 41 couldn’t have been more hospitable to us. It was a pleasure sharing cake pop tips complete with Santa directions. We made Brownie cake pops from our cookbook and those little bites of brownies are scrumptious. You can find all kinds of creative, out-of-the-box cake pop ideas in our new book. (Available from thebabycakesshop, Amazon or Barnes and Noble)
Cake pops can answer the question for gift giving this season. You can surprise a crafty friend with a Babycakes Cake Pop Maker and a copy of our cookbook or you can make cake pops and deliver them to friends, neighbors and teachers. We all have those hard to buy for folks on our lists this season. Why not think of giving cake pops to that special some one? They are such a welcome treat and there will be smiles all around! Guaranteed.
