Sesame Pumpkin Chocolate Cake

Cakes, Chocolate, Desserts, Fall, Quick and Easy

First of all, I’d like to apologize to anyone experiencing a heat wave in the United States. I know how frustrating is when all you want to do is go to Homegoods and buy fall stuff, wear scarves and a hoodie and you’re forced to wear sandals and sweat. Despite the wonky weather, I brought fall today in form of this Sesame Pumpkin Chocolate Cake.

For all intensive purposes, this cake is a snacking cake. You snack on it when you probably should just make yourself a meal. You bake this and then keep it on your counter for as long as possible (it probably won’t last long). It’s a great way to live!

Here’s why this Sesame Pumpkin Chocolate Cake amazing. Ready?

-This cake requires one-bowl
-If you want, you can leave out the chocolate. You have freedom.
-The flavor of toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds with pumpkin are surprisingly lovely.
-The chocolate adds a lovely gooey touch to this cake that I am into.

Passionfruit Vanilla Layer Cake

Cakes, Desserts, Spring, Summer

Hello from the other side of this Passionfruit Vanilla Layer Cake which took me exactly five beautiful hours to decorate. I thought the #18 tip was going to be bigger than this but it ended up being teeny tiny! And I also may have been distracted by old episodes of Real Housewives of New York. I forgot how great/terrible/amazing they are.

I’ve been in the throes of getting our house together. I’m trying to take my bedroom from dorm room to cozy and it’s taken a lot of planning and moving random things out of it (whole post coming soon!). I guess you can say spring cleaning has been in full effect and it feels SO nice.

So naturally, I took a bit of a break and made this cake. This cake is so delicious and it comes from Icing On The Cake: Baking and Decorating Simple, Stunning Desserts at Home.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to make beautiful beautiful cakes that also taste delicious, her book is a wonderful resource. It’s so inspiring, there were at least ten other cakes I was debating before I settled on this one!
