Kitchen Faerie Primal Carrot Cupcakes

This post has been a long time com­ing! Back when I was just think­ing of start­ing my blog and had cho­sen a name for myself, my dear friend Lau­ren came to vis­it me, and as a house­warm­ing gift she brought me the cutest fairy princess bak­ing kit with cup­cake lin­ers and lit­tle fairy cup­cake inserts! She knows me all too well. It was the per­fect gift to start my jour­ney as the Kitchen Faerie! So I decid­ed I def­i­nite­ly need­ed to make a pri­mal cup­cake for these mag­i­cal cup­cake lin­ers. Even though car­rots Read more […]

Aunt Nancy’s Famous Gingerbread Cookies

Amy one comments

My Aunt Nan­cy has always made the most deli­cious gin­ger­bread cook­ies.  One year we used this recipe to build home­made gin­ger­bread hous­es, and since then we’ve had an annu­al gin­ger­bread par­ty where the whole fam­i­ly makes and dec­o­rates the cook­ies togeth­er. There’s always been a ridicu­lous amount of cook­ies in the house dur­ing the hol­i­days, and now with all the gin­ger­bread it tru­ly feels like a cook­ie fac­to­ry, and my family–a bunch of cook­ie elves!  This would be a great activ­i­ty for a kids hol­i­day Read more […]

Snowy Coconut Roulade Cake

I rarely have trou­ble with a recipe but the orig­i­nal frost­ing for this cake was a night­mare! Usu­al­ly I can hold my own with egg whites, but they just posed as one bar­ri­er after anoth­er in this recipe. I also usu­al­ly can sal­vage a not-so-per­fect mix­ture, but there was no sav­ing this cur­dled slop­py mess so I opt­ed to use my own cream cheese frost­ing recipe and it paired won­der­ful­ly with the spongy coconut cake. If you aren’t a fan of cream cheese frost­ing, you can also use a sweet­ened whipped cream Read more […]

A Home-Grown Wedding Cake

Amy No Comments

I had been wait­ing for two of my clos­est friends to set a wed­ding date for almost two years when they sprung it on their clos­est fam­i­ly and friends just a week before they tied the knot! Not only was I thrilled to final­ly share their beau­ti­ful day with them, but they EVEN asked me to make the cake!!! I was so excit­ed to make my first wed­ding cake and I couldn’t think of any two peo­ple I’d rather share it with. The wed­ding would be the fol­low­ing Sat­ur­day on Lagu­na Beach, so I had exact­ly one Read more […]
