Roopa It was my good friend Chris’ birthday!!!! …in August. I’m clearly a great friend. In all seriousness, things got busy right around his birthday, I started travelling a lot for work, and then I just forgot about it entirely for some months. It came back up again recently and I committed to actually making … More Funfetti Cheesecake
Roopa Now that I’m on a macaron making mission, there will likely be a few macaron posts on here. I had some ideas of things to improve from last time (and a lot of excess ganache) so round 2 happened. I fixated on all the imperfections in the last post, but I neglected to mention … More Macarons 2
Roopa As per usual, I prematurely volunteered myself to bake for a work event and didn’t plan well or leave myself much time. It was a high tea, and after waffling between several options I decided on madeleines. I considered macarons, but I felt a bit nervous making them without having tested them in my … More Macarons
Roopa After much travel, I’m back in my kitchen with some time for real baking! My company is doing a Cinco de Mayo themed lunch, so I volunteered to make cake. What is more themey than margaritas?!
Roopa It was my volleyball coach’s birthday this week, so some kind of baking was in order. It’s right in the midst of mini egg season and I got some really beautiful pastel sprinkles in my subscription, so I decided to make a giant cookie with some whipping cream to hold the sprinkles. I don’t … More Giant Mini Egg Cookie
Roopa My sister saw my other sprinkley treats and she decided she wanted something also, so I made some cookie butter bars. I also got to use my new plate from Anthropologie!! You always have to find the right colour scheme between dishes and food, so it can be really satisfying when you find a … More Cookie Butter Bars
Roopa I recently signed up for the Sweetapolita Sprinkles of the Month Club, and the only downside is that I haven’t been able to keep up to all the sprinkles I’m getting! I decided that whatever I made today was going to be covered in sprinkles regardless of what it was. I was baking for … More Chocolate Brownies
After about a month on the road, I’m finally back in my kitchen! I’m only here for about 3 days before I’m off again, but it was still nice to be able to bake something. My colleague’s birthday was on January 3rd, and I’m trying to catch up on my birthday baking. I saw this … More Butterscotch Bourbon Cake
Roopa It’s somewhat unreasonable how excited I am about my Sweetapolita Sprinkle Subscription. Here are some cupcakes with How I Wonder Sprinkles!
Roopa My friend is having a baby! Another friend threw a surprise Baby Shower, so I obviously said I could make the cake. The gender is going to be a surprise, so I wanted the whole thing to be pretty gender neutral. The request was chocolate cake with cream cheese icing, which kind of dictated … More Baby Shower Cake
