Passionfruit Vanilla Layer Cake

Cakes, Desserts, Spring, Summer

Hello from the other side of this 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!

Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Cakes, Desserts, Spring

I’m not gonna front, these carrot cupcakes are THIS carrot sheet cake recipe in cupcake form. A lot of people have asked me “can I make this sheet cake into cupcakes?” The answer is absolutely! It’s as simple as making the batter and putting it into cupcake liners.

But listen, I know that might sound more than easy but sometimes we have to see it in its transformed state in order to actually be inspired to make it you know?

Here they are transformed!

These cupcakes are so delicious and if you want something sort of bite-sized for your brunch situation, then these are it for you! I love carrot cake. It is divine. And it’s always been incredibly high on my list of things to make when the weather starts to get a bit nicer. I love the bits of carrot, crunchy walnuts and large quick bread-like crumb.

Lemon Berry Meringue Trifle

Desserts, Quick and Easy, Spring

This is the first ever trifle I’ve ever made! Some of you will probably be shocked, appalled, stunned. And the other half of you probably don’t know what a trifle is. Don’t worry, I will explain.

In my extensive trifle internet research I read that trifles are very much English. And they do very much remind me of an eton’s mess. But just on a grander, larger scale, which I am very into. Especially since we’re in the thick of spring, which means Easter, brunches and gatherings.

For this post, I teamed up with Pyrex and their new line of Pyrex Deep baking dishes. I love Pyrex so much and use their products daily. Their Deep line is extra special because it is up to 50% deeper – meaning you can fit even more pasta (for pasta bakes), a bigger roast (for Easter) and even more layers (for trifles).

I also love that they all come with super secure lids so you can take to your friends’ and families’ houses and you don’t have to worry about spillage.
