Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream Recipe

This is a recipe I’ve had rolling around in my brain for awhile now.  I recently realized I had all the right ingredients floating around my apartment, and since it’s still summery enough to whip up some ice cream, I got right on it! Back before I was drinking plain ‘ole joe on a daily […]

Bacon Week: Joy the Baker’s Coffee Bacon Sandwiches

Bacon Week Day Two!  As expected, I have something lovingly planned.  Just for you. Earlier this month I began planning for Bacon Week and was pleased to come across Joy’s recipe for Coffee Bacon Sandwiches.  Coffee?  Bacon?  Two of the best things in the world, along with, maybe, goat cheese?  WHAT?  THIS HAS GOAT CHEESE […]

All About Buttercream & Coffee Frosting Recipe

I’ve mentioned several times in past posts what the final flavor decisions were for the wedding: chocolate cake with coffee frosting.  But have I posted recipes?  I don’t believe I have! The frosting, as I have mentioned previously, came from a friend-of-a-friend’s mother’s old magazine; a coffee buttercream.  This I also had to reduce its […]

WeddSplosion: Cake Tasting Part 4

WeddSplosion IV: The Final Tasting This is it, ladies and gents – the decision has been made.  The wedding cake flavor of choice is: Chocolate with Coffee Buttercream!

WeddSplosion: Cake Tasting Part 3

WeddSplosion III: The Cake of Doom I’ve started giving the WeddSplosion episodes names. After the wedding cake project started rolling in a serious sort of way, Emily came to me with a recipe she’d gotten from a friend.  “Apparently it’s supposed to be really good,” she explained, “They said they’ve made it for several weddings […]

Mocha Marble Cake with Mocha Buttercream Frosting

After Tuesday’s WeddSplosion cake tasting I was only able to give away 2 of the 3 cakes I baked.  Luckily, the awesome Marble Mocha cake was the one leftover.  This meant it was obviously time to whip up some Mocha Swiss Meringue Buttercream. I know it’s annoyingly yuppie of me to have used Starbucks instant […]

White Chocolate Coffee Cookies

I love myself a good cup’o’coffee. I’m no serious expert.  I don’t own a coffee grinder or a french press and I’m pretty sure the way I doctor up my morning mug would make most coffee connoisseurs cringe.  When the other day I went to buy some coffee beans and the barrista asked me how […]

Red Velvet Cupcakery

The Red Velvet Cupcakery is a little shop in DC with swank little cupcakes for the tasting. I was in DC for New Year’s with my boyfriend and some other friends, and when we saw this place in passing, I insisted on going in. Naturally, no one objected (because seriously, who doesn’t like cupcakes? You […]
