  I got this recipe from my friend Sarah Fioroni. Her family has a farm sitting high above the village of San Gimigiano, Italy. It's a light and easy cake batter, adorned with rows and rows of concentric circles of apple slices. The result is a stunner of a cake. I dust mine with powdered […]

This cake launched the Bundt pan craze–hardly anyone had this pan and everyone had […]

The broken wrist cake. Some things don’t turn out as you planned.   Example, this Strawberry Smash Mason Jar Cake.  Let’s go back to Valentine’s week awhile back.  Remember my fellow Texans?  Snowmageddon, Ice-Capades, Winter Apocalypse?  As a well intentioned friend, I offered to make and deliver Valentine’s dinner for a few of my favorite […]
