One of my best girlfriends has a birthday coming up, and we have a mutual passion for donuts — I wouldn’t be exaggerating by saying we exchange at least 2-3 emails a week about donuts. Which is why I thought it was completely acceptable to make a cake, and then add donuts on top of it for her birthday celebration this weekend. Conveniently, I had recently purchase a mini-donut pan, and followed the recipe that came with the pan (from Williams-Sonoma). They were surprisingly simple to make and totally jazzed up my box-mix cake I made for the occasion. So remember: the next time you’re making a three layer chocolate-chocolate cake and you ask yourself “Is this enough?” the answer is no, no it’s not enough, and then add donuts on top of that cake.
I think I’m just going to start a new blog or tumblr that features amazing cake pictures. I could look at them all day long! My obsession today is this six-layer chocolate malted & toasted-marshmallow cake, it looks heavenly. Visit Sweetapolita for the recipe and to look at the gazillion other delicious pictures – I have definitely found a new favorite baking blog.
Another cake moment this morning was spotted on You Are My Fave, where mini cakes were used in lieu of floral centerpieces for a party tablescape. Man I’m hungry!
Black raspberry, blackberry, really berry anything is my favorite — I love the flavors but think I’m also drawn to the delicious looking colors too. This blackberry buttercream frosting recipe is definitely getting stored away for a special occasion — it’s mouthwatering just looking at it.
I jokingly (kind of) told friends last week that if I ever get married I want my wedding cake to be made out of blue cheese — cheese, in general, is absolutely my favorite food group in the universe.
Then I saw this wedding cake and realized there are other girls just like me that prefer the savory to sweet. Stacked wheels of cheese? That’s my kind of cake. Mmm, I could really go for a slice of brie-cake right about now…

If anyone out there is listening… my birthday is just two months away… please make note that I would like my birthday cake to look a little something like this:
Holy modern design covered in chocolate. It looks like a Barcelona day bed, but no my friends, it’s something much better… it’s a cake!
