Fall foods are typically warm and cozy baked treats. But, the weather is not cooling down everywhere.

Is anyone else as obsessed with unicorn cakes as I am? A few weeks ago, I got to hang out with pastry chef Lia Weber and watch her create this over-the-top cute Halloween witch unicorn cake!

The best ideas often come when I’m half asleep. This time, while lazily dreaming about a box of ice cream sandwiches in my freezer, I came up with the ice cream sandwich sandwich.

How to Make Chocolate Soil

One of my favorite parts of Carvel or Dairy Queen ice cream cakes is the crunchy chocolate bits between layers.

Cocoa Brittle

I love how a little piece of homemade cocoa brittle (nougatine) can make any dessert look like it came from a fancy bakery.

Up Close and Personal with Fair Trade Chocolate

Two years ago, I entered my baked apple cider donuts into a contest with Fair Trade USA to win a trip to tour Fair Trade farms.

I first discovered the magic of clotted cream (the sensational cross between whipped cream and butter) when I had it on scones at The London Tea Room.

Custardy and Rich Clotted Cream Ice Cream

In searching for ways to use clotted cream (the amazing spread that’s a cross between butter and whipped cream), I came across several recipes for clotted cream ice cream.

Vanilla Cupcakes with Strawberry Whipped Cream Frosting

Do you have that one recipe that you want to make again and and again and again? For me, it’s my ultimate vanilla cupcakes.
