    My friend, S, has the cutest, chubbiest baby. Seriously, he's got more rolls than a bakery. Baby E, D, and I went for a visit today and as is customary at Christmastime (or at any other time if you're me) I brought a few goodies for her and her husband to enjoy. In the past, I've had quite a...

At first, I was going to make a layer cake, but when I heard that there were going to be 30 people there, I thought that cupcakes might be a more prudent choice. I knew right away that I wanted to make a cupcake with...

    Have you heard of the cronut? I know it's been getting some bad press lately for making some people ill in its run as a burger, but I was still curious. Jimmy Fallon is obsessed with them. He even had the pastry chef who created them on his show to do a demo of how they're made. Having tried...
